Set in "The Enchanted Valley", on 28 acres of lush, sub-tropical rainforest, the idyllic setting highlights the architectural magnificence of the property's main house, a dramatic glass and steel treehouse.
Set at 1,000 feet above sea level, this Yumi Design home features an eco-sensitive passive design, with high ceilings and masses of floor to ceiling glass that allows an abundance of fresh cross breezes and light into the home.
The main entrance is set over the frog pond accessed by a bridge that leads to a spacious furnished entertaining deck and barbecue. There is also a convenient separate entrance way which connects to the undercover ground floor parking area.
The galvanised steel frame of the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has resulted in an extraordinary solid build. Other features include attractive Blackbutt floors, an enclosed wood burning stove, gas central heating and a unique European wood burning cook top and oven that also heats the hot water.
The master bedroom and adjoining sitting room on the mezzanine floor extends to the full width of the house and comes with large built-in wardrobes. Access from the bedroom to the private east facing deck is through large parliament hinged double doors.
With most of the exterior walls being floor to ceiling glass, including the bathroom, these windows provide an intimate view from the comfort of the home out to the magical surrounding rainforest and its inhabitants.
Decks around the home are perfectly set at tree height from both internal levels to provide a choice of sheltered shade or sun at any time of the day, or year.
The substantial study area adjoins the living / kitchen space. Conveniently situated under the house are 3 car spaces, an enclosed secure storeroom and laundry.
The beautifully crafted quality furniture and built-ins were designed and manufactured specifically for the internal spaces and are included in the asking price.
The only cultivated areas are the landscaped gardens around the house, the established orchard and the vegetable garden creek flat.
Although of a different configuration to the main house, the guest house shares the same "treehouse" design elements. With two internal levels to provide privacy and comfort, there is an enclosed wood burning stove providing warmth in winter, plus there are plenty of adjustable louver windows to allow cross flow for coolness in summer.
Complete privacy is assured as there are no visible neighbours and the two houses cannot be seen from each other.
Clean pure spring water filtered through volcanic rock runs year round to the house and guesthouse from a source high up on the property. There are also two 10,000 litre rain water storage tanks and a high pressure gravity feed water supply to the vegetable garden and orchard collected from the spring overflow.
