Located just outside the town of Uki (where median house prices increased by 24.3 per cent last quarter), this property offers quintessential Northern Rivers country living - where a love of nature and the environment goes hand in hand with strong design aesthetics and the amenities associated with comfortable, modern living.
Just 40 minutes from Gold Coast International Airport, 50 minutes from Byron and an hour-and-a-half from Brisbane, the property is set on approximately 75 acres.
As you enter via the winding, tree-lined driveway, you are transported to another world. A world of relaxation, beauty and serenity where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the outside world and be embraced by sprawling living areas, breathtaking views and lush manicured gardens.
On top of the property's raised plateau, with views to Mt Warning, within the setting of the beautiful gardens, sits the three-bedroom, three-bathroom, air-conditioned master-built home, and the spacious one-bedroom self-contained guest quarters (with separate private entrance, suitable for extended family, guests or au pair). The large four-car garage offers internal access to the home.
With a spectacular natural backdrop of mountains and riverfront, there are views from every room which are complemented by the extensive use of exotic timbers including Bluegum, Hoop Pine, New Guinea Rosewood and Tasmanian oak, and the wrap around verandahs where the indoors and outdoors merge seamlessly.
The formal living and dining space is generous, inviting and stylish yet comfortable, featuring a Norwegian "Jotul" fireplace, with granite hearth and oak mantel. The dining room also features an exquisite dining table circa 1840 and dining chairs circa 1842 (apart from two carvers which have been hand crafted to compliment the dining chairs) which the present owner may consider selling as part of the purchase.
The kitchen is an entertainer's dream, with Miele appliances, walk-in pantry, and double ovens. The wine cellar, which was imported from France, is thermostat controlled.
Bedrooms are generously proportioned with outstanding views. The expansive, well-appointed executive office offers the ability to work from home, without encroaching on the living spaces.
Outside, the property really comes to life. The outdoor fire pit allows you to enjoy all the property has to offer. The gardens include rare and exotic frangipanis, yellow stringy bark, and bloodwood. The Bunya pine grove features over 1000 trees, all between 15 and 25 years old.
There is also a Lemon Myrtle plantation with around 650 trees, ten 25 year old bonsai plants, an established veggie garden, and boutique orchard.
The fully-fenced property also features cattle yards, electric fencing, a large 20 x 12 x 6 insulated shed with shower/toilet, as well as water storage tanks (200,000 litres) and a 20 mega litre water entitlement.
The current owner had begun planning stages of creating an additional revenue stream via the creation of Glamping and Yoga Retreats (STCA). With it's incredible peaceful surrounds, the property offers the perfect location to rest, relax and heal. These commercial enterprises are ready to be explored by the new owners.
Some properties simply cannot be captured in words and images. They have a special feel and atmosphere which draws you in and demands your attention. This is one such home. A property where the man-made structures pay homage to their spectacular surrounds, and there is perfect harmony with nature.
