No need to leave home for your holidays when you live in your own private retreat. Real estate of this quality is rarely available. This house on 7,300m2 has direct water frontage at Lake Tinaroo on the Atherton Tablelands in North Queensland. It is situated 15 minutes from Atherton and about 80 minutes from Cairns and the domestic and international airports. The outstanding property features are the quiet privacy, a splendid landscape with a view of the Lamb Range to the north. The main outlook is to the east across the waters of Lake Tinaroo providing the spectacles of sunrise and evening moon across the lake. The land is sloping with dry stone wall and rock features, an established minimal maintenance garden of native plants and mature trees ensuring privacy and a sense of seclusion. The open lawn rolls gently down to the lake with access for swimming, sailing, canoeing or boating from the bottom of the garden. There is wildlife in abundance: resident agile wallabies on the grass and families of wood duck and bush stone curlews are regular visitors. The current owners have listed 160 bird species on site or nearby on the lake. The home has a master bed room with walk in robe and facilities, a large living area with fireplace, kitchen and a large formal dining room. Outdoor living areas include a partly covered courtyard and a large deck overlooking the lake. There are 3 additional bedrooms all with generous built ins, a shared bathroom and an office/rumpus which can be accessed if desired through a separate entrance. There is an NBN satellite connection for fast internet access. The plan is ideal for entertaining but is essentially a fine family home. There is extensive space below the building which currently houses 3 vehicles and a boat. Also on this level are a large storeroom/workshop and a cool dark wine cellar.
