In the heart of the Gold Coast Hinterland there is a rainforest hideaway on 3.38 hectares (8.35 acres) only 15 minutes to the M1, 10 minutes to Nerang, 16 km from GC CBD and 1 hour to Brisbane CBD.
A project of over 31 years, family circumstances has brought this not ordinary but extraordinary property to the market. From the road a very private driveway meanders through the rainforest up to the roundabout driveway at the house entry.
Concrete and brick construction built by an experienced local engineer (owner) commenced in 1988 and has been constructed to stand the test of time. Resilience to the elements is key! This house very sturdily built into the side of the hill with a wrap-around Queensland style balcony sits at the top of the driveway roundabout. To replace with this quality of construction would be cost prohibitive in today’s market. With imagination and ability to create this house could be given an incredible transformation.
A grand staircase leads up from the front foyer to the main living areas. In the middle of the house is a cosy two-way open fireplace to warm the heart of the home's generous dining area and lounge room. A wood fired stove compliments the country-style kitchen. The Master bedroom is in a separate private wing with spacious ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. Another room set up as the office is in the same wing could easily be converted into another bedroom.
The house can accommodate up to 20 people comfortably, some of the accommodation is disabled and wheelchair friendly, in the following configuration:
• One, two bedroom self-contained with fireplace
• One bedroom self-contained with fireplace.
• Motel style studio with bathroom and kitchenette and a connecting room adjoining second studio also with bathroom and kitchenette.
• Separate single bedroom self-contained demountable.
A Rooftop atrium amongst the tropical trees is the perfect place to relax on hot summer evenings and gaze at the night sky. Nestled amongst the rainforest the property also has a fire fighting system drawing from two large rooftop mounted water tanks (45000 l total).

Imagination is the key to this property as it lends itself to many possibilities.
