THE GARDEN OF EDENSurrounded by a beautiful setting of established botanical gardens, park-like grounds and spectacular rainforest, this tropical paradise is located on 43 acres (17.46ha) in the Port Douglas hinterlands of Julatten, just over one hour’s drive from the Cairns Airport. A former nursery, the property is home to an abundance of native and exotic plant species and resident native birds and wildlife.
A bamboo lined driveway leads to the main residence, a modern 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom concrete block home. Open plan living spaces lead to the outdoor entertainment area overlooking the sparkling in-ground swimming pool and water pond feature offering an oasis of calm and tranquillity. The country style timber kitchen is equipped with Bosch appliances, servery to the tiled outdoor area and a large walk-in pantry. There are built-in wardrobes in the bedrooms and an ensuite and WIR in the master bedroom, floor tiles throughout, wood fired heater, 2 solar power systems and a double garage.
The second dwelling is tucked away from the main residence and consists of a fully furnished, well maintained, country style 4 bedroom, 1 bathroom self-contained split block cottage. The owner regularly rent it out to bird watchers. Features include a fully equipped timber kitchen with gas cooking, open plan lounge and dining area, pot belly heater and access to the deck.
The original A frame timber bungalow still remains on the property and there are multiple (powered) sheds and other structures including 2 x 3 bay colourbond sheds, numerous storage sheds, a chicken coop, veggie garden and all the infrastructure is still in place for the nursery. Unlimited water is sourced by a potable bore and 27,000 litre tank which is gravity fed and there are also 2 dams on the property and a seasonal creek. The front of the block is fenced into separate areas including a large paddock set up for horses or cattle with a shelter and the remainder is rainforest. Included is a 25HP Kubota Diesel tractor with front end hydraulic bucket and rear mounted slasher.
The property offers an ideal opportunity for 2 families to reside on the one property and still have their own space or live in one home and rent out the other.
The current owners searched far and wide to find this property and it is a rare find indeed! Pictures don’t do this property justice; it must be seen to be appreciated.
