This unique property is going to turn many heads as it breaks the mould of conventional housing having been built from shipping containers. It is not something you see every day but certainly a growing trend amongst environmentally savvy builders. Many say it is worthy of grand designs, maybe not but the pictures tell the story. The house looks like any other on the inside, from a materials perspective, it is only when you go outside that your remeber what it is constructed from. The house has been built in the last five years and has been designed to meet the many environmental demands of the Territory and as you can imagine it is super strong. The natural airflow through the house has to be seen to be believed. The house is designed to be either opened up totally which encourages maximum airflow or closed up tight as the conditions dictate. Designed to allow you to be as close to nature as you would like or have the choice to lock it out as you desire, you can decide. You can have the best of both worlds. The house has three phase power and is wired from three seperate phases, one for each wing of the residence to ensure that power outages are kept to a minimim. It has LED lighting throughout with a solar hot water system which is fed by 120,000 litres of rainwater and a backup water source from the river for the gardens. A low environmental footprint being the goal and clever use of utilities to keep costs down. The modern kitchen is huge, designed for large family entertaining, it boasts a stone center island bench top with dishwasher and loads of cupboard space. There is a large pantry and linen cupboards ensuring there is maximum storage available. Fixtures and fittings are all of a high standard. Floor to ceiling tiles are the theme throughout the three bathrooms. Two situated downstairs and one upstairs. Two are shower and toilet only and one has a bath and toilet only, the latter great for relaxing in or bathing the children or grandchildren, whatever your desire. All three bedrooms have built in robes and like the rest of the house are all fully air conditioned meaning a good nights sleep in the hotter months. The master bedroom has a walk in robe and ensuite with double his and her's showers so there's no waiting your turn. There is an amazing spiral staircase that leads to the home cinema styled lounge room as well as the two remaining bedrooms and upstairs bathroom. The decks upstairs and down have a combined area of 240m2 so outdoor entertaining has never been easier. Sitting in the spa upstairs at night, sipping a cold drink, looking out over the bush watching the sun go down is a real treat and makes you feel like you are on holidays. To top this off, in the Wet Season you get to see the light show as the tropical storms roll in from the ocean. There is a 30m2 shed also built into the house off the carport that accomodates two cars easily. There is also a number of other sheds dotted around the property that are currently used for the other parefenalia that these types of properties attract. There is also a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, With kitchenette as a second dewelling, not built to code but suitable as a granny flat, teenager retreat, or weekender for the rellies or boys fishing trips. The land itself is quite unique, 26ha situated on the Finnis River (freshwater side) it has about 15km of river that can be accessed from either your private boat ramp or the public ramp which is situated on the eastern boundary of the property. There is a private road that joins the top of the property to the river and is accessible most of the year round. There is a billabong which holds water most of the year round and is prolific with birdlife. Litchfield is situated upstream some 30 odd kilometers away and this land allows for easy access into all of the back country that connects onto this area. This means there are millions of square kilometers to explore according to your preference. The property really is a hunting, fisherman or environmentalists paradise. The salt water is 6 kilometers away in Bynoe Harbour, Dundee Beach is 30km away, you have Barra or Redclaw at your front doorstep, pig hunting, goose when in season, you name it. Or you can simply sit back and enjoy the serenity the place has to offer. The property is about 75km from Palmerston, there is bitumen access for all but the last two kilometers of this so it makes for easy access. There is real potential for this property to be developed to allow camping, caravan sites, bed and breakfast or tours taking in the natural environment. It will also suit as a weekender given how secure it is or as it is currently used as a family home. It is only limited by your imagination and your bank balance.
