Secluded home on acreage

With established gardens on acreage and the amazing setting make this home a practical proposition for any family. The flat ground offers an opportunity for play and ease of maintaining. Located a short distance before Cooktown amenities near Keating’s lagoon this property backs into stunning native bush land loaded with bird life.
This quaint and very comfortable block home sits on 1.8acres of established grounds including mature fruit trees and a Bowen Mango orchard. The owners additionally lease 1.2 acres adjacent to the property which runs parallel. Wilkinson Street is a dead end, so no through traffic and there is an amazing calm feeling to the area with all neighbours having large open properties with generous gardens. There are numerous walking trails, mountain bike trails and bird watching sites surrounding this area.
The house comprises of 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, laundry and separate toilet. Tiled throughout this home is clean and inviting. Master bedroom has a built-in robe and is air-conditioned with a split system. The other two bedrooms have box air-conditioning with all rooms opening onto the veranda that surrounds the house on three sides. With a carport attached to the house one has a sheltered unloading area, then a high set 4 bay open shed for storing a boat or caravan to the side of the driveway with closed sides to the prevailing weather. To the rear of the property is a garden shed that houses a bore, providing pure and refreshing clean potable water. Additionally, there is a two-bay Besser block lockable shed with power and a mower carport.
Set alongside the house is an ample in-ground swimming pool with waterfall and paved surrounds. In summer a shade sail is set covering the pool and area. Just outside the pool fence under the shade of the trees is a tasteful fire pit and grill area.
