At One with NatureProperty ID 1551229Dreaming of escaping to the Wilderness to get away from the noise and hustle and bustle of Suburbia ? Here is a perfect opportunity to do just that, without having to move out to the whoop whoop.
This 10 acre property is only 15 minutes to gateway and 25 mins to Brisbane CBD, but you'd never know it. Set back apx 250 meters from the main road is a uniquely designed 3 bedroom 2 bathroom split level home with a semi detached self contained retreat perfect for a home office. This home is built to compliment the rustic setting with a wrap around balcony and is truly at one with nature in a tranquil setting that's second to none. Have breakfast with the King parrots, take a stroll to the creek and imagine you're the only one in the universe, if only for a short time.
A beautiful tropical rain forest and running creek in your own backyard? Yes!
And arguably, the best stand of palm trees on the Tingalpa Creek. Here, tall and majestic Bangalow palms reach 25m into the sky. Growing in clumps, they dominate the bend in the creek below. Huge tropical trees living in symbiosis, muscle up beside the palms, their big chunky, slab roots unfolding lazily from their trunks.
Multiple strands of long, stringy vines shoot from the ground, only to hurriedly escape into the tree tops.
Lawyer vines hold court as they congregate in patches, struggling vainly to keep law and order in this jungle!
A small lagoon lies beside the long pool of quiet clear water...the very heart of this rain forest. Normally a placid, free flowing creek, the extensive dry spell has cut the flow in places but, the pools remain totally unconcerned.
With heavy rains this gentle creek quickly comes alive, roaring through the little hollow, pushing all aside, even coursing halfway up some palms! Unbelievable...but true!
Looking up, a thick green canopy of leaves cover the sky. Sunlight peeping through casts shifting patterns onto the mossy tangle of roots below. Light plays on the water, exposing underwater rocks, leaves, twigs and even black mussels. Reflections quickly come into sharp focus. Shimmering lights bring a brilliance to this natural wonderland.
No mud here! Unlike many creeks and rivers, the banks are mostly clear and clean. Wallaby tracks go in all directions. Picnic spots and wading areas abound. Surprising walking tracks lead deep into the surrounding bush.
A dark green jewel completely hidden yet openly displayed for the privileged few! An emerald of great worth. Like an unexpected treasure, it's discovery is breathtaking and startling!
This is no ordinary bush...this is a full sized, natural rain forest with it's own working ecology!
Best of all, you can enjoy it in complete privacy...and it's totally yours!
Located in a designated water catchment area, your investment lies safely protected against future development.
Locked away for over 35 years this rare and most unique gem is now on offer, but, only to the most discerning of nature lovers. Your gateway to a priceless and almost extinct lifestyle.
All this right at your own back door? You'd better believe it!
