Enter a world like no other. Settled in amongst the nurturing and simply beautiful Daintree Rainforest,
109 Spurwood is located in the Cow Bay area. It offers incredible purity in terms of water quality and fresh air – a quality of living about which most people only dream.
This enchanting property consists of a beautifully built 1 bedroom 1 bathroom home, set amongst mature and superb rainforest. Steel posts and steel bearers with hardwood and other termite resistant timbers come together to make this home both attractive and very sturdy.
Cooled by nature, the house grabs the mountainside breezes and channels them to naturally cool and aerate the home. Floor to ceiling picture windows open wide to allow the fresh air in and provide outstanding views of the surrounding forest.
Fishtail oak cladding and cypress flooring are both attractive and hard wearing emanating a warmth throughout the home.
A compact and functional kitchen features walk- in pantry and quality Lofre (Italian built) 5 burner gas stove and oven.
The light and airy bathroom features a ¾ bathtub and Clivus Multrum eco-friendly composting loo.
Lounge and dining areas enjoy the huge picture windows allowing a peaceful and relaxing view in every direction. Disguised as a storage cupboard by day, a fold down double bed in the lounge area quickly transforms the home to a 2 bed to accommodate guests.
The bedroom features a well ventilated walk-in robe and more big picture windows. Awaken in the morning to incredible views of the rainforest surrounds.
Powered by Nature – This off grid home boasts a professionally installed power system comprising 12 × 80 watt solar panels and a German built 12 volt battery bank (6×2volt cells). A back-up quiet 3kva Honda petrol generator provides extra charge to the system as needed. The generator is housed in a block built shed which in turn is cleverly placed behind the main water tank for maximum noise reduction.
Water worth bottling – Daintree rainwater, pure and delicious is collected on the roof of the home and stored into a 28,000 litre tank. An added pump conveys the precious cargo up the hill to a newly installed 1,000 litre header tank, which in turn provides gravity feed pressure to the home. Additional water can be pumped from the creek.
Outside, there are two carport areas for parking and an impressive workshop area, open air but well covered for use in the wet season.
Under the home an additional room is currently used as the laundry and storage. Potential exists to turn this area into another bedroom.
A small pathway leads to an outdoor shower, whilst a longer pathway takes you to the magical creek! The creek runs right through the property and is semi permanent (correction to video – creek is semi permananent as can dry up during extended dry periods) Stunning beauty surrounds and embraces you in the creek area and an inviting small splash pool offers rainforest cooled waters to recline in. Cassowaries regularly wander through the property and tree kangaroos are seen on occasion.
This property really is a “cut above” and allows deep rainforest living with adequate light and air circulation. The home has been beautifully maintained by loving owners and presents to a very high standard. To request the info package, please call Mark Whitham on 0419 735 943 or [email protected]
