Absolute Daintree Rainforest Dream Home

MASSIVE PRICE DROP FEB 2020 – 695k Walk in Walk out

Located just 600 metres from superb Cow Bay Beach and immersed in rainforest privacy, Wait a While Daintree is nothing short of superb!

Set on 2.5 acres this incredible dream home oozes style and sophistication, embracing you in its sheer beauty.

Wait a While Daintree is one of the largest, single dwellings ever constructed in the Daintree Rainforest.

Designed by award-winning, South-African architect Gavin Paddock, and modelled on the traditional New Guinean long-house, Wait a While Daintree offers almost 500 square metres under roof.

The building, completed in 1993, contains more than 100 tonnes of timber and is finished with materials sourced from southern Queensland, South Africa, Kashmir, New Guinea and the United States.

The property is off-grid and solar-powered featuring a recently upgraded renewable energy system. Professionally installed, the solar system reliably supplies the whole property with all its power needs. There is a 5 KVA Yanmar Genset for back up

Comfortably sleeping up to 10 guests, the property boasts 3 bedrooms downstairs consisting of 2 x king bedrooms (both are beautiful, spacious and so inviting) plus a third bedroom that has 2 x king singles and a pullout trundle. Upstairs on the mezzanine level there is a queen bed, lounge area and access to a private highset deck (fully covered). This area presents as simply gorgeous.

The well-equipped kitchen is beautifully finished in polished New Guinea Rosewood.

There are 2 beautiful bathrooms inside the house, as well as an additional shower outside by the pool.

No matter where you stand in this magnificent home, one feels centred by the overwhelming beauty in every direction.

Expansive, undercover, open decks offer extra dining, lounge and relaxation areas and connect via a wooden staircase to the resort style swimming pool. The pool area is so lovely and private, you could easily spend the entire day here.

This property is being sold as a WIWO so the lucky new owner can continue with the successful business side of the property, easily blocking out availability for personal use.
