Mission Beach luxury home made from trees on property for sale
FROM the stunning views to the Coral Sea and Dunk Island to the furnishings made from felled maple trees on the property, you will never be lost for a conversation starter in this luxurious Mission Beach home.
Built by a retired master mariner who sought a new challenge after renovating the John Oxley, a 75-foot, timber, ex-pilot boat from Brisbane, 40 Mission Circle at Wongaling Beach is a truly beautiful creation.
Tropical Property Mission Beach agent Tania Steele said the four-bedrdoom, three-bathroom private retreat has space for six vehicles and took two years to complete. The price has been dropped from $1.4 million to $1.2 million.
“Built to a unique design, the structure is predominantly locally-sourced spotted gum and is spread out over two levels, nestled within the bounds of World Heritage rainforest,” she said.
“From a soaring entrance way, a timber staircase leads you to the living areas where you enjoy views from as far north as the Barnard Islands, to Dunk and Bedarra Islands and south to Hinchinbrook Island.
“Nearly every window and door can be opened, providing a seamlessness between the land and the sea.
“Praise must go to this ex-seaman for his vision and passion and love for naturalist ambience.”
A galley-style kitchen with a separate pantry and cool room has sash windows which open fully to take in an unobstructed view and a promenade deck runs the width of the upper level.
A formal dining and lounge area is at the southern end of the room and offers a secluded space to relax or work when the seas are up and the wind is blowing a gale.
Sleeping quarters are on the lower level and all open out onto a veranda overlooking a lap pool.
“Against largely restrained backgrounds of natural timbers and tongue-and-groove walls, nothing competes with the natural surroundings or the views of the Coral Sea,” Ms Steele said.
“There are several entertaining areas to choose from on the lower deck depending on the weather and where your mood takes you.”
The interiors of the home “create an aura of comfort, relaxed luxury and enduring style”, according to Ms Steele, and if you like the furnishings, they can be part of the sale.
An eclectic mix of handmade timber pieces with old and new with vintage rattan, elegant occasional furniture and quirky nautical objects are tastefully arranged throughout the house.
