Discover your inner harmony at this Mowbray property which offers a gazebo with a custom daybed to soak in those endless valley views
ENJOYING the best of everything the Far North has to offer with work, convenience and lifestyle, is, unsurprisingly, becoming inconvenient as fewer and fewer properties meet this criteria.
That is until 150 Spring Creek Rd, Mowbray, entered the market – a one-stop solution for the perfect Far North lifestyle without compromising family needs.
The double storey, five-bedroom house is listed for auction on August 21 with Ray White Port Douglas, and principal Mark Flinn said there was a common theme in the feedback he was receiving during open home inspections.
“If a tropical hinterland lifestyle is what you have been searching for then this auction opportunity is for you,” Mr Flinn said.
“Located in the beautiful Mowbray Valley, this home is a retreat on 1.04ha with breathtaking views from every window.
“And that’s what everyone tells me – they enjoy the views, how secluded it is and the outdoor area.”
This family-style home is wrapped with a decked veranda that frames endless valley views and a private and peaceful in-ground swimming pool and waterfall is accompanied by another entertaining gazebo area with a custom daybed that invites relaxation.
The front entertaining area is grassed with a gazebo, fire pit and access to the sleep-out bunkhouse and studio living
“There’s plenty of space for the kids outside, they certainly won’t be upset.
“The garage outside is designed well – it’s built on the way up and there’s a separate bunk house cleverly built out of a shipping container.
“The owner was working on a project overseas where they built houses for these communities from shipping containers and that’s where the idea comes from.”
Mr Flinn said its location was the property’s standout feature.
“It’s private and secluded on a closed-off street and even though there’s a pool, you’ve got a beautiful freshwater creek nearby.
“And it’s so close to Port Douglas – about 15 minutes.”
The early 2000s-built house features a strong use of timber. The main bedroom upstairs features built-in wardrobes and an ensuite, as well as two further spacious bedrooms with builtin robes and views out to the rainforest.
The upper floor also features an office and an open-plan kitchen and living and dining area which seamlessly continues on to the outdoor veranda. The lower section of the house offers the ultimate media or games room and the fourth bedroom.
This property features undercover parking and a separate three-bay shed to house all the outdoor toys or a workshop.
Mr Flinn said Port Douglas and the Mowbray region had always been popular for southern buyers and the recent lockdowns hadn’t changed that outlook.
“We’re still doing FaceTime inspections. We get a lot of interest from Melbourne and some from Sydney. Walking through Port Douglas at the moment feels like walking through Melbourne. You’ll find that many Victorians.”
