Totally private and situated at the end of a rainforest lined road offering glimpses of the Russell River and home to a healthy Cassowary habitat, you would think that you were in another world and yet only a 15 minutes’ drive to Babinda and 1 hour to the Regional City of Cairns (approx.)
This property has been owned by the family for generations and is offered for sale for the first time in 60 years. Backing onto World Heritage Rainforest which is home to pristine creeks and water first off the mountain, there are water falls, swimming holes, abundant flora and fauna, 12 cleared acres of fenced cattle paddocks and stunning mountain views.
The modern home was built in 2016 by Cairns Quality Homes and is 250m2 under roof including the full length timber veranda which captures the breezes and views and a rear veranda for a change of scenery.
Wake up every day to the gentle sounds of flowing water from the permanent creek as it meanders past the grassy landscaped compound. There are numerous spots to swim all year round and yabbies to trap. Fruit trees surround the house.
The property has reliable wireless NBN internet making working from home a breeze.
Inside you will find 3 spacious bedrooms, main with walk in robe and ensuite, a large modern kitchen with Caesar stone bench tops, 900cm x 5 burner gas cook top, self close everything and Bosch dishwasher, the main bathroom with a 2 shower rose cubicle and indoor laundry with plenty of storage. Air conditioning throughout. Wide 900mm eaves keep you dry in the wet season.
The large shed with amenities is 15m x 15m and has 2 rooms, bathroom/laundry and a large workshop area.
Approximately 5Ha (12 Acres) of cleared land with working cattle yards including undercover vet crush, lends itself to a hobby farm, with the potential for crops or an eco-tourism venture. Think rainforest walks to walks to see the cassowaries and other wildlife or identify one of towering hardwood trees or many other varieties of flora unique to this area and ancient rainforest timbers, some measure 6' in diameter.
Quality water is permanently sourced from the mountain and gravity fed to the house and surrounds. Access to the deep water swimming hole and waterfall with a 5m drop is behind the property in National Park and only a 10 minute walk.
There are 3 dog kennels, a fancy chook house and a 27,000 litre water tank.
