Tropical Sanctuary with Stunning Rainforest and Ocean Vistas

For Sale $1,650,000

Positioned amidst the serene tropical splendour of Miallo in Far North QLD, this captivating semi-rural property on Somerset Drive offers a rare fusion of tranquility and panoramic beauty. On a generous 5746 sqm, the home is perched 70 metres above sea level, the ideal height to ensure awe-inspiring vistas of the cane fields, the Daintree Rainforest, and the shimmering Coral Sea (note: the ocean appears closer with the naked eye than the photos portray!). You can even see the Low Isles and its lighthouse.

Witness a magical sunrise from every vantage point, whether you're snuggled up in the master bedroom or lounging on the verandah or sundeck. The property is home to a host of wildlife, birds and butterflies.

The expansive outdoor decks, including a 100m2 covered, wrap-around verandah and a 70m2 sundeck surrounding by an immaculate tropical garden are linking the house and the pool, all in faultless condition, all perfect for al fresco living, while the large windows and skylights throughout the home bathe the interior in natural light and fresh breezes. In fact, though fully airconditioned, the property's orientation and design promotes a cool and comfortable atmosphere year-round.
Relax, cool down and enjoy the beautiful scenery from the pool.
