Rainforest retreat hidden in Valley
If a unique property hidden in the rainforest is what you’re after, look no further — this Currumbin Valley gem offers a life away from the hustle of bustle of the city
WELCOME to your own tranquil paradise.
Bob Newman and Barb Roberts bought their “private oasis” 11 years ago and were sold on it almost instantly.
“We pulled up out the front and walked down the driveway,” Mr Newman said.
“The rainforest basically enveloped the property and I just fell in love with the place.”
Set on a sprawling 1.97ha block in Currumbin Valley, the two-level residence features a variety of unique crafted details with timber a prominent fixture throughout. One-of-a-kind camphor laurel bench tops are found in the kitchen and main bathroom while distinctive staircase stands out. An open plan kitchen, high pitched ceiling and extensive picture windows are found on the ground level as well as multiple living and dining areas, office and laundry.
The second level features three bedrooms and the main bedroom with walk through wardrobe and ensuite.
“We have basically modernised it since we bought it,” Mr Newman said. “We painted it and added a fifth bedroom.”
He said he had many favourite features but sitting out on the back deck was one of the standouts.
