About Luxury Penthouse in The Rainforest Exclusive
Perched high on a mountaintop, nestled on 200 acres of natural tropical rainforest, this magnificent one-of-a-kind property has a panorama of stunning uninterrupted views over the Coral Sea, from Rocky Point, past Low Isles to Port Douglas and further down to Double Island and Cairns. Not to be forgotten, the 180-degree mountain and waterfall view complete the 360-degree vistas. Close to everything, Port Douglas, Daintree and the Tablelands, yet completely private and serene. The views as you arrive at the residence will take your breath away; an entertainers' dream home, with many features designed with just that in mind. At the upper-level entrance, there is a large terrace with a fire pit and wood-fired pizza oven. This side of the home has a wide undercover verandah with a gas barbecue, alfresco dining and sitting area overlooking the mountains and waterfalls.
On this upper level, there is floor to ceiling glass sliding doors on both sides of the house giving you spectacular views from all rooms, full of natural light and capturing the breezes, perfect for our tropical climate.
The beautiful gourmet kitchen is sleek and modern, with large composite benchtops and plenty of storage. Free-flowing and open in design the spacious living area is separated from the kitchen and dining with an inviting bar. There is a guests' powder room servicing the living / entertaining areas.
The master bedroom suite is also on this level with walk-in robes and an impressive ensuite featuring separate basins and, not to miss out, you can shower overlooking the incredible vista south along the coast to Cairns.
An impressive undercover patio runs the full length of the house with an alfresco sitting area and opposite the Master bathroom, an Oasis hot tub. Indulge yourself with a glass of your favourite beverage while watching cruise ships and pleasure boats by day and relax and enjoy the glorious sunsets over the mountains and moon rises over the ocean by evening and night.
The lower level comprises of two more king bedrooms both with en-suites and walk-in robes, a study, a large laundry and the piece de resistance, an impressive 1,500 bottle climate-controlled wine cellar with second fridge/freezer. A double lockup garage and equipment rooms complete the lower level.
This property is a highly efficient, low maintenance, self-sustained smart home. It is powered by a 15kw (60 panel) solar system, entirely off the grid with fully redundant dual inverters and battery banks (any single equipment failure and the system still generates and supplies ample power). There is also an 18kva backup generator in the unlikely event both sides fail simultaneously.
The fully automated and energy-efficient C-Bus home automation system which controls lights, fans, A/Cs, blinds, temperature and movement sensors are integrated to the audio/video systems, security system and power generation. This can all be monitored and controlled from anywhere in the world via iPhone or iPad (one device monitors and controls everything).
Even with all this technology and every luxury, there's no need to skimp on clean, free power, this is a highly sustainable and environmentally positive property.
A short distance from the main residence there is a rustic dwelling with bed/sitting room, camp kitchen and bathroom, with plenty of possibilities and options, i.e. extra living, teenage retreat, caretaker's cottage.
Floor plans exist to add a home theatre, home office, more bedrooms, gymnasium, sunroom or extra open decks to the existing home if required. There is also plenty of elevated flat land with stunning views for further development.
This is the most private and peaceful environment to enjoy life to the full.
