A luxurious mountain-top home nestled in the secluded Daintree Rainforest has just been listed for sale at $2.69 million. The sprawling 37-acre property offers complete privacy and jaw-dropping 180-degree views of the surrounding national park and Coral Sea coastline.
“Offering a unique level of seclusion for those who wish to escape from the world, seeking the solitude, natural beauty, and wildlife of the Daintree National Park, with spectacular views out to the Coral Sea and 180° coastline views,” the listing describes.
The contemporary four-bedroom, three-bathroom home was designed by renowned North Queensland architect Chris Van Dyke and built in 2000. It sits approximately 125 metres above sea level, providing unobstructed vistas from Cape Tribulation in the north to Palm Cove in the south.
“These unsurpassed panoramic views encompass the cane fields far below, then extending out to the Coral Sea from as far north as the Daintree coast to Low Isles and Port Douglas then as far south as Palm Cove’s Double Island, beyond Cairns and even to Cape Grafton on a clear day,” according to the listing.
The spacious home features quality rainforest timber, hardwood floors, an open-plan living area with floor-to-ceiling glass, and multiple outdoor entertaining spaces. The kitchen boasts granite benchtops, European appliances, and a breakfast window overlooking the rainforest canopy and ocean.
The master suite includes glass louvres and an ensuite bathroom with a rain shower. One of the guest bedrooms has a private Bali-style courtyard with an outdoor tub.
But the true highlight is the resort-style swimming pool and spa overlooking the Coral Sea vista. “This salt-water pool is feat of engineering and design. 12m long, 4.5m wide with an 8 seater spa and an infinity edge over the panoramic coral sea vista, it’s dreamy and very photogenic!” the listing states.
The home is entirely off-grid, with a new 24.4kW solar system and 46.1kW battery storage. It also has a self-sufficient freshwater bore, automatic irrigation, and 4G/5G and NBN internet connectivity.
Just 20 minutes from Port Douglas and 90 minutes from Cairns, the property provides easy access to the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree River cruises, Mossman Gorge, and other natural attractions.
“This luxurious retreat is for the discerning buyer who seeks solitude, privacy and to be at one with the pristine natural environment but in luxury, all in one of the world’s most enviable climates,” the listing agent remarked.
With its remote yet accessible location, luxurious amenities, and breathtaking scenery, this Daintree Rainforest oasis offers the ultimate private hideaway in one of Australia’s most prized natural settings.
