This residence that is spectacularly built into a mountain slope, yet without sacrificing the need for flat, usable land, is graced by unrivalled privacy, panoramic views.
The occupants of this supreme home enjoy an atmosphere of calm and equilibrium with beautiful tropical gardens on 6,700m2.
The property can’t be seen from the road and is characterised by three terraces that provide plenty of level-land.
The north-easterly orientated façade of the residence is predominately constructed from the world’s most trusted natural building material since beginning of time: Timber; in this case of tropical termite-resistant hardwood, aesthetically crafted to perfection and where tribute was paid to every detail. The construction principles reveal a deep appreciation of tropical architecture that is in tune with nature.
A grand covered timber deck with cathedral ceilings encompasses the entire width of the house and provides awe-inspiring views over the valley of Kuranda and towards the rainforest-clad mountainous landscape of the Macalister Range, capturing cooling mountain breezes and the scent of the tropics.
The south-west orientated rear of the building is artfully constructed by brick-veneer in a way that resembles nothing less than the proudest European craftsmanship. Here, a water-featured pond and a large timber deck in a most tranquil setting provides undisturbed privacy and rainforest-views.
The main-level allows access in style via a wide timber-decked entry-porch with cathedral-ceilings, designer double-doors, polished timber-floors, cathedral-ceilings, two living areas and a large mezzanine level, formal dining, four bedrooms and two bathrooms with the master-bedroom featuring a private bath and walk-in robe. All living areas, kitchen and four bedrooms have access to the grand timber deck, where mountain-breezes provide a comfortable climate.
The cathedral-ceilinged mezzanine-level of 70sqm is cladded in Cyprus-Pine and makes a perfect media room and entertainment area.
An internal staircase connects to a two-room ground-level flat of 60sqm with a separate entrance and private bath; the ideal teenage retreat, guest quarters or office.
With combined living areas of 458m2, this residence is of respectable dimensions. The replacement value of this superbly crafted, immaculately presented residence is well in excess of $1m.
This property would be a valuable gem in any Airbnb portfolio. Alternatively, long-term rental is an option; a rental-appraisal of $850-$890 weekly is on hand.
Kuranda has long been prominent in individual circles, both for its tropical but moderate climate at an altitude of some 400 metres above sea-level and also for a quality lifestyle that is in sharp contrast to the densely-populated areas around Cairns and the coast. The village’s amenities and infrastructure include a variety of schools, churches, shopping centre and a Medical Centre.
Smithfield at Cairns’ Northern Beaches, the James Cook University, the International Airport and the Cairns-CBD can be reached in 20-30 minutes.
I welcome your request for an individual inspection.
