In A World Of Your Own – Subtropical Paradise
Looking for a Subtropical Oasis with the privacy and ambience that only a rainforest location can give you? Looking for the convenience of easy access to the coast and urban centres at the same time? Look no further. Everything is only a short drive away with sealed road access and sealed connecting roads.… only 14 km to the iconic hamlet of Uki, 27 km to the large township of Murwillumbah, and approximately 50 kms to the beaches of Cabarita or Kingscliff, you'll enjoy the best of both worlds. And in this age of being able to 'work from home', professionals can commute to the city with ease as the Gold Coast Airport is only 57 kms away.
Set in the Multiple Occupancy Community of 'Pretty Gully', This lovely spacious open planned home with is fully off grid and is located in the dramatic volcanic hills of the border ranges with Mount Warning as it's backdrop. Lot 9 is a 1 hectare holding; one of only 14 shares of a 208 acre community, with common land fronting Byrrill Creek as well as a mature rainforest frontage to Pretty Creek. The share itself is beautifully planned with large lawn clearings and meandering pathways and gully 'bridges' in and around the home. The largest clearing is dedicated to netted food gardens and fruit trees with room to expand, and the ornamental gardens display the owner's 'labour of love' for the past 30 years and now feature large flowering trees and mature flowering shrubs.
The dwelling is a lovely grey gum pole construction on concrete stumps which cleverly elevates the building from the forest floor and affords a beautiful outlook. Built in the 90's, this building exudes the warmth of a country residence with a spacious, light and airy interior with raked ceilings, featuring artisan stained-glass windows. Not your run-of-the-mill glass, these windows will give the new owner joy all year round and in all light conditions. They are simply beautiful. There's a pretty crafts-shed near the dwelling, and you will be struck by the attention to artistic detail in the layout, the stonework and the upright shingles featured in sections of the home and surrounds, the window frames, the touch of mosaic work, and the classic pattern of the verandah railings – all giving this home a point of difference to standard constructions.
As with all great country dwellings, the large verandahs are a feature and will beckon you outside to soak in the great outdoors. From here you can enjoy the landscaped gardens, abundant bird life and the calming forest vistas. Even the resident koalas are a joy to behold.
As for those Eco credentials, there's gravity fed spring-water plus 18,000 litres of rainwater tanks with an electric pressure pump. Even the double farm shed has a tank, so water security is no issue here. Hot water is via an efficient instant gas hot water system, and cooking is gas. For power there's a standalone and recently upgraded 3.25kW solar with 3000W inverter, a charger and generator backup, and there's a woodfire heater with cooktop and oven in the living area as well as a ceiling fan in the master bedroom. The toilet is a Clivus Multrum compositing system. Connectivity is no problem with both satellite internet and a landline phone. The building has extensive use of timber milled on the property including pretty Casuarina shingles as a part of the exterior cladding, and the property boasts self-sufficient status with such mature fruiting varieties as citrus, tropicals, lychees, berries, grapes, macadamias and bananas.
Make this beautiful place your special space, either as a family home or a retreat. Beautifully presented, this affordable property is not to be missed.
