A two & a half hour drive North of Port Douglas on the highway will bring you to the idyllic setting of Quarantine Bay.
Set in an enclave of only ten residential properties sits this timber pole home on 607m2 of absolute Coral Sea beachfront. Your own quintessential piece of paradise with a hammock strung between two trees at the bottom of the garden. Quarantine Bay sits immediately to the North of Monkhouse Point and is sheltered from the predominant South Easterly trade winds, so your 'private' beach creates the sound of gently lapping waves to lull you to sleep at night; or any other time of the day if you so choose. What a superb, relaxing setting! Feel like fresh oysters? Just walk a couple of hundred metres down the beach and you're in oyster heaven. Maybe some fresh Mackerel or King Salmon for dinner? Jump in the dinghy & head a couple of hundred metres off shore - ahhhhh; the price you pay for living in paradise.
During the Autumn and Winter, Humpback & Minke whales pass right by your beach on their migratory trip up the coast, and further east lie the world famous big game fishing grounds of the Ribbon Reefs where 1000lb+ Marlin come to spawn each spring and the 'local metropolis' of Cooktown becomes a hive of activity servicing the fishing, diving and cruising industries.
This offering presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a piece of the Far North Coast before it becomes unaffordable (the last 600m2 vacant block here sold for $450,000) - It truly is irreplaceable real estate!
The pole home itself has been specifically designed for tropical living with the whole of upstairs dedicated to one ensuited bedroom and huge open plan areas incorporating the kitchen, dining, lounging areas. Master tradesman built of hand selected hardwoods; Oregon beams, Turpentine poles, cypress flooring and Leichardt walls, this house is bullet proof and 3.6 metre centres give incredible flexibility of internal design for new owners. Downstairs you'll find two sleeping areas, another bathroom & laundry, the fresh water spa and the undercover entertaining area; on the sheltered side of the house... absolutely practical, and giving you 288m2 under roof! The gardens are fed with a 1500 gph bore, there are two rain water tanks of almost 25,000 litres capacity for the house and there is a two bay shed for garaging and all the toys.
This is not just 'another' house on a beach somewhere in the tropics. This is an idyllic retreat for a couple or family who really do want a sea-change. No longer the last Northern frontier, you are still only 15 minutes from the local airport and Cooktown so it's not like you are in the middle of nowhere, paradise just makes you feel that way. The current owners have spent twenty years setting this home up with everything you could possibly need in this environment and are prepared to consider offers as all inclusive walk-in, walk-out! UNBELIEVABLE VALUE - YET A BELIEVABLE REALITY!
