Live in the treetops in this beautiful rainforest homestead -style home.
Set on 7.9 acres in the Forest Creek section of the enchanting Daintree Rainforest, a winding driveway meanders through outstanding rainforest to the house site, tucked away deep into the property for maximum privacy and peace and quiet.
Culminating at the small sensible size yard the first glimpse of this towering home becomes apparent.
An elevated rainforest home in the trees, the entire structure is supported by solid concrete poles.
The underfloor area is expansive, housing the electric components and batteries for the power system and has room for the Yanmar Excavator (included in the sale for a sale at full list price) and an additional bay for a carport.
The permanent creek situated just below this area provides a natural and soothing ambience with the sound of trickling water.
Heading upstairs you are greeted with an amazing, sprawling open air space incorporating kitchen, dining, lounge and entertaining area.
A wonderful verandah fire place is installed for complete indulgence in this space, which overlooks the rainforest creek below.
The kitchen features a new fridge and 6 burner commercial gas oven and cooktop. A walk in pantry houses a 240 volt power point and 12 volt stereo system for you to complete the picture with rainforest tunes. 12 volt lighting features throughout the living space, modern and varied with colored lighting, strip lighting over the timber bench top and spot lighting, all combining to bring this magic of this area to life at night.
Another small staircase leads up to bedroom 2 , fully screened with cleverly designed ‘shutter walls’ easy to open and close.
Hardwoods and local timbers combine to create the living areas making it attractive and sturdy home.
Continuing on through the home, a sturdy and very inviting raised boardwalk winds through the trees to provide access to the loo with a view (composting Toilet) and beyond to the master bedroom with en suite.
This boardwalk is designed to last forever, super tough and attractive with stainless steel safety ropes. This is an area that invites you to linger and enjoy the surrounds.
The master bedroom is recently completed and features an en suite bathroom almost the same size! Ornately carved entry doors provide a widened entry into the bedroom which has 240 volt power points and 12 volt changeable lighting.
The bathroom is glorious with generous views to the rainforest and a monsoon rain shower head to tempt you into staying.
Clever concrete designed hanging basin and even dimmable lighting!
THE CREEK – The creek on this 7.9 acre block meanders on and off the property and features a fantastic swimming hole. Deep enough to swim around in, the creek has crystal clear, rainforest cooled water with ferns and mosses abounding. It really is a magic place.
The main swimming hole is directly below the home.
A Platypus power installed Hydro Electric unit is installed at the creek which provides power 24/7 to charge the 12 volt battery bank. A solar system set up on the roof of the homes contributes with additional charge.
2 well built tracks access the hydro and creek from the home, these are well built permanent rock paved pathways allowing easy access back and forth.
THE WATER – Water is straight from the creek, no tanks here, just a permanent supply of pressured water straight from nature. Inline filtration is installed. A pressure pump is set up and can be turned on if you want added pressure. The water is so pure and as a Daintree resident for over 20 years I have drank Daintree creek water the whole time without incident.
THE POWER – A 12 volt battery bank is installed with both solar and Hydro electric charging sources. A near new Victron inverter (used by the Australian Navy) and brand new regulators for both the solar and hydro.
This system provides both 12 volt and 240 volt power to the home.
THE REST – Mobile phone signal at property. Potential to install satellite NBN broadband. Australia Post mail delivered Tuesdays and Fridays. Weekly bin collection by council garbage truck.
