Designed by renowned Far North Queensland architect Chris Van Dyke, this private acreage on the Cairns northern beaches offers a unique pavilion style home, built for the tropics, set against a forested backdrop and is offered for sale for the very first time.
Positioned at the end of a private driveway and across your own concrete bridge over a seasonal creek, this one of a kind home is spread across 2 pavilions in a south east asian style, with a main residence and separate guest quarters.
Featuring an inspired use of timber, space and stone, the main home offers central living and dining as well as a built-in study, with an excellent flow of light and breeze complemented by extensive covered patios to either side. The central kitchen provides an expanse of bench and storage space, with gas cooking, hand made custom cabinetry and a gas hot water system programmable to the individual degree.
In a private position with its own patio, the main bedroom is king sized, with full length built-in robes and a garden ensuite, providing a peaceful outdoor setting whilst still remaining under-roof.
The adjacent guest pavilion offers a natural flow, with open plan bedroom and study area, covered patio and its own ensuite, again surrounded by nature. Complementing the living spaces, there is a single attached garage and a separate detached shed/workshop space for all the odds and ends.
Creating a lush, tropical haven, the majority of grounds are beautifully landscaped, carefully designed to provide special spaces around each living area and make the most of the indoor/outdoor living on display throughout. Irrigation keeps everything looking its best, and the seasonal creek running through the front of the property makes rainy days ones to enjoy.
Less than 10 years old and the result of meticulous planning throughout, this is one home where you can truly appreciate the attention to detail, and for those looking for something distinctly different, private and yet within walking distance of shopping and the beach, this might just be the home for you.
