Located just a few minutes from the Daintree River Ferry, BIALA offers a rare opportunity for a desirable, off-the-grid lifestyle in this rainforest residence.
The driveway ascends through fan palm forest to this unique home, located high away from from the road, offering a feeling of seclusion. All adjacent blocks are owned by a conservation group and protected from development, so your only neighbours will ever be the local wildlife.
Cooling breezes are maximised by the functional, modern, open plan design and louvre windows. The lounge, dining and kitchen areas flow out onto a covered deck, taking in beautiful views across the valley to Devil’s Thumb. A perfect spot to watch the wildlife, from morning coffee, right into the evening. Cooks will love the stainless steel kitchen opening on to the deck.
Start your day by waking to the serene sights and sounds of the rainforest. The spacious bedroom features a walk in robe, and connects seamlessly with the generously sized bathroom with abundant natural light.
This home makes the most of the peace and tranquility of being immersed in nature, but you won’t feel like you’re camping. The Solar RAPS system works so well, you’ll forget you’re not on mains power. You won’t miss the bills though! The storage batteries are near-new, and the backup generator is less than 6 months old, and has hardly been used. The house’s location in an open clearing with full-day sun exposure results in ample solar power production for most of the year. There is also mobile phone and data coverage, with dishes for both TV and optional satellite internet. You can be independent for electricity and water, but still connected to the world when you wish.
There is abundant rainwater storage with gravity feed to house, as well as the option to connect the existing bore. The Biolytix system treats all grey water and sewerage, and returns it to the ground.
Adjacent to the house is a 2 year old 6mx6m shed, offering a variety of uses. The current owners use one half for storage and parking, and the other half as a home office, and basic guest accommodation. With windows and large glass sliding doors opening onto the trees, this could easily function as an additional bedroom, studio or workshop.
