Rainforest Retreat 70 Ha (174 acres)

Phone enquiries - please quote property ID 19731. That was quick. Under offer again. The access difficulties have deterred some buyers. This block is hidden, deep in the rainforest. You will not find it unaided. Ask for an inspection. Attempted 'drive by' will only infuriate the locals when you end up in their property. Magic when the sun shines, but often misty, only a select few hermit like people will really enjoy this verdant green jungle. Hidden deep in the rainforest, with World Heritage National Park on three sides, the nearest neighbours are more than a kilometre away. There is only a little flat land on the ridge tops, and some not so steep spots near the creeks. There are three ridges running south east across the block. There is a small creek in the north, and a big permanent creek cascades through the middle of the block. Always green, always plenty of water. Potential for your own hydro power system. The southern ridge is the high point at 730 meters elevation, with views from the treetops north east over the whole block and beyond the North Johnstone river to Mount Bartle Frere. Views south over grazing land, and on a real clear day you may see the sea to the south east. The middle ridge is thin and level across the block, It has a small clearing with a couple of fruit trees, and a neglected old mobile kitchen as a shed. For forty years, this tranquil, secluded hideaway has been a special place to escape the city madness. There have many plans, designs and ideas for this beautiful, isolated retreat, but with so many great possibilities, the owner never settled on one spot to make a start. Access can be a challenge in the wet, with the final three kilometres still an old logging road where just a narrow track has been kept open. For a reliable daily commute, much gravel and minor roadwork would be good. But as a secret weekend and holiday hideaway, the obscure hidden access track is ideal. Now, the owner and partner are more often at their summer home in Tasmania, and it is time to let some new energy care for and enjoy this wonderful 'vine scrub'. Starry eyed home builders ! This block is steep. There is no easy track down to the creek. There is little flat land to build on, and regular, reliable, access would be a significant expense. As a sunny weather weekender, this property is a great peaceful and quiet escape. But carry a chainsaw, and mud chains, for the unexpected storms. As a full time residence, there is a much work ahead.!
