8.5ha Oasis overlooking its own Sandy Beaches to the Great Barrier Reef, Sustainable Resort Masterpiece and Development Opportunity.
Sometimes you need to sail across the globe to find the world's most perfect untouched paradise. Nestled between the embrace of two World Heritage wonders, "Nemourna" unveils itself as a place of tropical vitality and extraordinary tranquillity. Bordered by pristine rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, it's an 8.5 hectare oasis wrapped in the sandy beaches of the Coral Sea, with mesmerising National Park and Barrier Reef panoramas.
Rising up from within the estate, "Garners Beach House" is a sprawling testament to sustainable luxury. Designed by Paul Clout, this award-winning "House of the Year" has paved the way for passive, yet opulent living. Boasting resort-style living across multiple pavilions, galleries of floor-to-ceiling glass invite in abundant natural light while stackable slider and bifold doors dissolve the barriers between indoor and outdoor living spaces. The true definition of integrated living and entertaining, it creates a coveted lifestyle and constant connection to the stunning surrounds.
Life looks blissful here: cook up a fresh self-caught seafood feast in the gourmet indoor and outdoor kitchen, host guests on expansive terrace or pool-side pergola, catch glimpses of breaching whales, or meander to the beach to capture exquisite sunsets. Serenity awaits at every turn, whether it is meditation among the treetops, a moonlit spa on your private master suite terrace or listening to the rainforest's melodies from a choice of five protected patios. You can even explore the rainforest trails, take your boat to nearby renowned fishing spots and Great Barrier Reef islands or rejuvenate in the 17 metre pool.
Enticingly, this opportunity includes a lucrative future. DA approval is secured for ten elevated residential blocks that capture sweeping rainforest and ocean vistas. Likely one of the last coastal developments authorised in Queensland, the lots are cleared and ready for construction.
Offering all the allure of island living (with water on three sides) but with the enormous advantage of road connection to the mainland, "Garners Beach House" represents the ultimate tropical location and lifestyle. With the current owners moving towards a new stage in life, it's time for new owners to exchange traffic jams for a barefoot commute to the beach and never worry about winter colds again! Embrace the infinite beauty and wellbeing of "Nemourna" and the unparalleled opportunity for future development.
