UNIQUE ISLAND FAMILY HOME
2 Mango Parkway, NELLY BAY QLD 4819
A natural paradise of birds, wildlife, tropical vegetation, and a complete change of pace.
Suspend yourself in this amazing natural environment that backs onto a koala corridor on Crown land.
The multi-level, all timber, pole home exudes charm & character at every turn with glorious timbers chosen and maintained with care.
A magnificent rock entry greets you and you will know that you have arrived at a unique property. This ground level has an art room and a guest room either side of the entry, all leading to the ground floor entertaining area and storeroom.
The timber stairs lead to the first level of this amazing property, an architectural void giving space light and character.
The living level of the home features a dining area, lounge and a sunken chill-out lounge area to contemplate the world. All rooms open to the large verandah that looks out to bushland.
Your timber kitchen has a large gas stove, ample storage and a breakfast bar that doubles as a servery. This is all located next the back verandah where constant breezes & natural light flow through the free-flowing design of the home.
Bed four, with its Murphy Bed (a fold-up bed), can double as a study on this level, while a study nook is also available.
The bathroom on this level features a stand-alone bath and a unique timber sink.
The void continues to the bedroom level of this home. Typical of island living, the master bedroom is a mezzanine style room with french doors opening to the back verandah and is next to the bathroom. Bedrooms three & four both have character and built-ins. Bedroom three also opens to the back verandah.
The verandah, that runs the full length of the home, houses the laundry & has access from the bathroom.
With verandahs opening out on every level you will feel that you are part of the amazing environment.
The grounds are home to an amazing range of birdlife and wildlife, the Crown land behind having koalas and many other native animals.
The pool is distinctive in its long-board design and comes complete with a Kombi van that houses the pool equipment. An outdoor shower is located next to the pool.
Fruit trees have been planted throughout the grounds over the years.
The carport at the front of the home provides double car accommodation.
The extremely quiet street gives you a feeling of seclusion while being a short distance to Nelly Bay harbour.
When the current owner returned from Europe 38 yrs ago, he carefully chose where to build his amazing lifestyle home away from the hustle and bustle.
The location is perfect with access to transport, shopping, medical care, and restaurants, providing a safe environment to raise a family with activities like fishing, outdoor living and growing your own food to name a few. The creek in front can also be used to kayak to the Marina.
The home can be utilised as it currently is for an owner-occupier or for a home business, tourist accommodation, or a combination of both, making it a perfect retreat.
When moving to a tropical island, this is the type of property that sums up what island life is all about.
