By Terry Christodoulou 29/07/2022

It’s not often that the property of the week column travels to the upper reaches of Queensland, but here, in Palm Cove, there’s an absolute need.

Expertly designed and crafted by architect Roger Mainwood, ‘Cliff House’ features in situ cement columns with a zinc fascia and Porphyry stone foundations — ensuring it stands the test of time — alongside teak timber cladding and a native landscape to blend into its surrounds.

The four-storey, 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 6-car garage home features extensive detailing that plays to the home’s connection to the natural surroundings through banks of bi-fold doors invite the outside in and sky-high ceilings adding to the voluminous feel of the residence.

Inside, the home sees timber-clad nooks combined with elements of limestone and tallowwood timber underfoot, while other touches of spotted gum, black bean and sally wattle feature throughout.

The residence’s kitchen is fitted with a concealed Liebherr refrigerator and freezer and a Siemens induction cooktop, oven and dishwasher combined with a North Queensland black bean timber breakfast bar and French Basaltina stone benches.

Elsewhere the home sees four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a plethora of living spaces within including a cost library and sun-drenched deck, media room and adjoining guest kitchenette.

Of the accommodation, the master bedroom sees a dressing room and ensuite with a standalone bath and twin vanities, switch glass overlooking the pool with views of Cape Tribulation and beyond.

Adjoining the living areas comes a poolside entertaining space, with room to entertain friends. Here, the layout has been designed to take in those aforementioned views of Double Island, Cape Tribulation with the 80,000-litre infinity edge pool the best place to take in the vista.

The home’s mod-cons don’t end there, with a full-sized cold room, 1200-bottle wine cellar and tasting room and temperature, 6-car garage with double remote entry, a gym, a Samsung VOIP phone system, CBUS home automation and fingerprint door entry.

Despite the home’s private setting, it is well positioned only a 10-15 minutes’ walk from a number of restaurants and cafes in Palm Cove Village and is only 25 mins to Cairns airport and 35 minutes to Port Douglas by car.

The property is listed with Mark Flinn (+61 405 646 313) of Ray White Port Douglas and Jason Monk of McGrath Estate Agents (+61 416 263 646). Price guide $7.1 – $7.5 million;
