WITHOUT A NEIGHBOUR INSIGHT!! A HIDDEN OASIS!!!
Your own piece of serenity perched up on the mountainside overlooking the quiet town of El Arish.
This truly unique home has the immediate feeling of a Tranquil Retreat, that lovely weekender that you go to get away from the hustle and bustle. This home has been beautifully restored, is very comfortable and is set in an amazing private setting. Adjacent to a natural waterfall so you can spend those hot summer days lazing in the fresh flowing creek from the "World Heritage". Hike through the rainforest and be at one with nature and explore the lush tropical gardens that surround. With no other building blocks possible, this unsurpassed space for future living is cleverly designed, utilising NE exposure and SE breeze orientation. Although the wonderful rainforest views afford a remote peaceful feeling, it is located only approx 4 kms off the coastal highway and small town of El Arish with Post Office, primary school, hotel, shop and servo for convenience, with magnificent Mission Beach approx 15 minutes away.
With past owners being professional landscape gardeners the design integrates the block and easements (almost 2 acres extra) into a cohesive, manageable layout, which combines the access with colour and foliage, exploiting the local iconic 'Licuala' fan palm (with an extra 100 planted) with well constructed private road providing all weather 2WD access.
The "tour de force" is undoubtedly the twin waterfalls and natural healthy lifestyle aspects, but notably this place also includes all new colour bond roof, new solar electricity making rising energy bills a distant past nightmare, solar hot water system, complete wiring for 240V, bath and vanity, toilet and cistern, washing machine and tubs, cedar doors and windows, all mated together for sustainable power. The layout is for 5 bedrooms, below one being an light airy studio potentially another with a cool basement feeling downstairs.
Leadlight feature windows add interest to the high ceiling upstairs living space, with open plan uniting the kitchen and servery to front veranda, all finished and lovingly restored/recycled oak, giving a warm cosy space with the other 2 bedrooms at the rear and a large rear veranda beyond. Front and rear staircases help the access.
Surely won't last....
