Daintree | 25 Hickory Road, Cow Bay
SECLUDED RAINFOREST PARADISE, WITH CREEK ON 1 HA – SELLING AS IS
As you drive up the driveway, fringed by exotic and tropical foliage, you know you are entering a stunning hideaway in Paradise. At the end of the scenic driveway you are met by a solid 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home on 1.03 hectares in one of the most beautiful places on earth. This property is completely OFF grid – power is by solar and generator and a very small battery system (needing a complete upgrade) and water is from a holding tank (above the generator shed) to the house pumped from the creek.
Unaffected by recent floods and cyclones, this will give you a durable and safe home. There is even a creek (with steps for access) on the property. Set in the midst of the pristine Daintree Rainforest this is your own heaven on earth.
The property boasts timber features throughout, solid exposed rafters, and large family/lounge/dining area with beautiful timber flooring as well as extensive use of marble tiling throughout. The sloping, high timbered ceilings give a great sense of proportion, style and space.
The home has had extensive renovations – floors, ceilings (timber paneled), doors and windows replaced, and main areas painted white. There is still work to be done of a cosmetic nature with an added room still to be completed. There’s so much scope to make this your own.
This property is located just 15 minutes drive from the Daintree Ferry over the Alexander Range. Cow Bay beach is just 6.5km approx. The Daintree is a special place with minimal building approval, so properties are limited.
If you are looking for a corner of paradise, in your own heaven, then this is the property for you. Whether as a family house, investment property or both, this can tick the boxes.
Despite the serenity and privacy of this property, it is not too far away from local amenities – Alexandra Bay State School is 5 minutes away. The local town of Mossman with shopping Centre, facilities (Bowling Club, local library etc.) less than an hours drive away. Cairns International Airport is approx. 2 hours away and the bars, restaurants, bistros and boutiques of Port Douglas are just over an hour away.
At present, inspections are possible with advance notice required, and further details by contacting the agent.
