Locked away for over 30 years this amazing 10 acre property is now on offer!
A uniquely designed 3 level north facing home and adjoining cottage overlook a beautiful creek and a full sized tropical rain forest!
Incredibly, only 15 minutes from the Gateway and 25 minutes from Brisbane CBD.
The house is set back approximately 250m from the main road.
A spacious open plan layout finds a high ceiling, big bright windows running the full length of the house. Windows are designed to bring the sun right into the house in winter yet keeps it out in summer. Solid 19 mm radiata pine boards on all the walls in the main house create a truly warm welcome. 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs and a self contained cottage adjoining.There is even more space under both houses to add extra rooms!
A relaxing back verandah to view and enjoy your very own private creek and rain forest. This dark green jewel is completely hidden from outsiders, yet openly displayed for you and your invited guests! Like an unexpected treasure it's discovery is truly breathtaking and startling!
A beautiful tropical rain forest and clear running creek in your own backyard? Yes! And arguably, the best stands of palm trees, tall majestic Bangalow palms reaching 25m into the sky. Growing in clumps, they dominate the bend in the Tingalpa Creek below. Huge tropical trees with gigantic roots unfolding lazily from their trunks live in symbiosis.
Multiple strands of long stringy vines shoot from the ground, quickly disappearing into tree tops.
Lawyer vines holding court, congregating in patches, struggling vainly to keep law and order in this magnificent example of nature at its best.
With heavy rains this gentle creek quickly comes alive, roaring through the little hollow, pushing all aside, even coursing halfway up some palms! Unbelievable...but true!
Looking up, a thick green canopy of leaves cover the sky. Sunlight peeping through casts shifting patterns onto the mossy tangle of roots below. Light plays on the water, exposing underwater rocks, leaves, twigs and even black mussels. Reflections quickly coming into sharp focus. Shimmering lights bring a brilliance to this natural wonderland.
No mud here! Unlike many creeks and rivers, the banks are mostly clear and clean. Wallaby tracks go in all directions. Picnic spots and wading areas abound. Surprising walking tracks lead deep into the bush. Unexpected whipbird calls.
This is no ordinary bush...this is a full sized natural rain forest with it's own working ecology!
Best of all, you can enjoy it in complete privacy...and it's totally yours! all lovingly protected so you never have to worry about losing it to development.
Yes. Locked away for over 30 years this rare and most unique gem is now on offer, but, only to the most discerning of nature lovers. This is priceless and fast becoming an extinct lifestyle. All this right at your back door? You'd better believe it!
