21 Acre property with absolute water frontage to Lake Tinaroo on the Cairns High lands
75km from Cairns via the picturesque Gillies highway.

Easy drive to Yungaburra, Malanda and Atherton. Excellent roads from Cairns to the property.
The property has a 2 storey 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom established home with open plan lounge,
dining and kitchen area. Opening onto a large open deck and covered verandas along the entire length of the home. 2 Bedrooms have French doors opening onto the covered veranda with a downstairs office and laundry with internal lock up space for 4 vehicles within the home on the ground floor.

All rooms including bathrooms offer views of mountains and or water. The kitchen has a gas cooktop and electric wall oven, double stainless steel sink, ample storage and walk in pantry. Gas hot water is provided by 2 gas hot water systems, one at each end of the home. There is a covered carport under the upstairs open deck area.

The water supply is provided by Rainwater held in a 30,000 litre tank, an additional 30,000 litre tank
Is used to hold water from Lake Tinaroo and this is used for gardens etc.

This property offers superb views of Severin lagoon which is a 130mt walk from the home.
The forest area on the other side of Severin lagoon is a world heritage area

A tree lined drive runs 600 metres from the property entry to the house. Piped Dam water is provided over the length of the driveway and around garden areas via a petrol pump and 30,000 litre tank.

It is increasingly difficult to find parcels of land of this size as local Government is reluctant to consider subdividing into parcels of land less than 150 acres around Tinaroo Dam.

There is something truly unique about this property, maybe it's watching the sunset casting a claret glow over the waters of the lagoon as it drops behind the hills to the west, beyond Atherton.

This is a serenely peaceful place, inviting you to just sit, relax and listen to the stillness of the tropical day.

Perhaps it's watching the Pelicans glide through hundreds of Cormorants' working the water into a frenzy of small fish just corralled. Or the shimmering of the glass like surface of the lagoon emerging through an early morning fog about to welcome a new sunshine filled clear blue sky.

50 percent of the property is bush land with maintained walking tracks wandering through this natural environment. Bird life is abundant. World Heritage Rainforest is across the Lagoon.

The cool tropics are naturally air conditioned, as the saying goes. Excellent rainfall keeps the property lush and green for at least 10 months out of 12. The area is ideal for walking, riding horses and cycling. All water sports such as canoeing, water-skiing and fishing are a part of the social activities on the lake.

The massive tourism development projects set for the Cairns region, along with mining projects planned for the North and current low interest rates all augers well for a stimulation in the North Queensland economy. Now is a perfect time to secure a prestigious waterfront property such as this. REF12370
