Cow Bay

54/227 Buchanan Creek Road

Rainforest Acreage Hide-away in the Daintree
Across the Daintree River and approximately 1 hour's drive north of Port Douglas lies Cow Bay, a quiet hamlet of homes nestled among World Heritage Daintree Rainforest.

227 (Lot 54) Buchanan Creek Road sits on a private 2.5 acre block and offers an opportunity for genuine off-grid living, with access to water (Cow Bay Beach at the end of the road) and of course the natural wonders of the rainforest itself.

Providing more than most, this two storey residence is built in an american barn style, with 3 bedrooms plus office (or media/4th bedroom), 2 bathrooms, internal laundry, generous kitchen and spacious living and dining areas, all tiled and with the main bedroom upstairs enjoying its own patio and mountain views.

The ground floor provides an extra large patio to the front, to look out and enjoy the myriad of fruit trees, and an expanse of flat, cleared land (mostly fenced) with the balance of the block under rainforest.

Beyond the house itself, there is an attached double carport, good sized tool shed as well as a substantial in-ground water tank with pump and small solar array with battery backup system. The existing system is in working order but there is opportunity to expand and embrace newer technologies, with plenty of roof space to accommodate a more modern system.

- 1.09Ha allotment backing onto rainforest
