Property description

A beautifully designed 9 bedroom house located on a 4 acre property surrounded by native vegetation, wildlife, and plantations. Spot wallabies, kangaroos, kookaburras, possums, and if you're lucky, an echidna from the comfort of the varendah.

On the property itself, there is a salt water swimming pool and tennis court available for use. A telescope gives you a unique view of the night sky from one of the highest and unobstructed views in Mareeba. The sprawling lawns and beautiful rose bushes provide a serene environment for your holiday.

There is also a pool table, aircon in all the rooms for the summer heat, a beautiful courtyard to keep an eye on the children, cable TV and internet.
