Substantial and stylish house, rural in feel but close to town
This is a very special Port Douglas area property - designed for you to enjoy tropical living.
This substantial and elegant timber home makes use of Silky Oak, Brushbox and Blackbean hardwoods throughout to create a tropical residence of character. On several levels, this Queenslander style home is very well built and anchored by over 20 steel posts, and the property was designed so you benefit from views and breezes. Soaring ceilings and shuttered windows assist airflow, and there are overhead fans and airconditioning so life is comfortable at all times of the year. Along with open plan dining and living, and modern kitchen, there are 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and an additional office/study.
Dine on the deck looking towards Mossman Gorge and the Daintree mountains, with the Coral Sea in the distance to the east, or enjoy breakfast overlooking the very private bushland setting. The delightful lagoon style swimming pool will entice you, and the tropical gardens provide a tranquil setting. Birdlife is a feature and butterflies are attracted to the flora. You might spy a timid wallaby, or bandicoot on the hectare of grounds. Despite being rural in feel, the sugar town of Mossman with schools, supermarket and hospital is only 10 minutes away, and the resort village of Port Douglas with its shops and restaurants is 15 minutes drive.
The sellers have enjoyed the property for their personal use, and also operated it when convenient to them as a bed and breakfast. This aspect could be further developed, and the business is included in the sale. Lifestyle and income! Great for those longing for a seachange.
