Hidden above the valley floor, nestled in amongst beautiful Gum, Wattle and Bloodwood trees and surrounded by 10.5 acres of natural bush land is a home without parallel. Port Douglas Sunrise Retreat is nestled on the hills of the beautiful Mowbray Valley, just a 10 minute drive from the Port Douglas town centre and its famous 4 Mile Beach. As you commence the climb up the meandering driveway, you would never imagine or expect it to open up to such a pleasantly presented property. The main house sits high above the top of the driveway with its outdoor entertaining area prominently positioned in the centre of the two sections and an infinity pool at the forefront of the area. Three additional separate buildings are strategically positioned to provide total privacy and spectacular views for the occupants of each. Sunrise Retreat offers one of the most unique and versatile properties available on the market today. You may run the property as an income earner with 3 Guest Houses, or have a main 3 bedroom house with separate caretaker's cottage and a separate office and garage area. Sunrise Retreat compromises 4 kitchens, 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 3 living areas as well as sun decks and outside entertaining areas. This beautiful property can easily accommodate 6 vehicles, bike trailers, boats and your own helicopter. It is built using the most modern and tough materials available keeping maintenance at a low and visual aesthetics at a high. The main house commands spectacular views of the Mowbray Valley out to the turquoise blue of the Coral Sea with famous Low Isles and Snapper Island in sight. It is built to the highest standard so that every room takes full advantage of the visual feast offered. Huge opening windows to each room allow the natural light to fill the rooms and allow the slightest breeze to be caught. To one side of the entertaining deck is the kitchen and living room at deck level; while upstairs is the master bedroom suite. Every room has panoramic views and extensive use of timbers. In the living room the flooring is of Black Bean, providing a stunning contrast to the white walls and timber cornice work. The kitchen is massive, including the most exquisite solid slab Queensland Maple bench tops; with mountains of storage space, large drawers with quiet closing mechanisms, walk-in pantry, glass fronted wall cupboards and a stunningly large professional gas cook top and oven, this kitchen has it all for the entertainer or chef to be. From the kitchen, beautiful Acacia Cedar timber stairs lead up to the master bedroom suite. As you enter the master bedroom you are greeted with the view of the valley leading to the ocean through fully opening concertina glass doors. These are surrounded by the built in wall to wall cupboards. Walk out to your private balcony with glass balustrading to watch the theatrical scenery change at sunrise and sunset. On the opposing side of the bedroom you will find the most stunning master ensuite with freestanding bath with private picture window overlooking the bushland to the rear, separate glass enclosed corner shower, Queensland Maple timber vanity, W/C and modern floor to ceiling tiles. You could easily bathe for hours in this bathroom. To the other side of the entertaining deck and pool is the second bedroom of the main residence or the Guest Wing as the owners like to call it. This bedroom is large, with beautiful Silky Oak timber flooring and glass concertina doors leading out to the deck and entertaining area, the view is yet again spectacular. It has a walk in robe and a private ensuite with large open plan shower, a large silky oak timber vanity with wall to wall mirror, W/C and beautiful floor to ceiling tiling.
