Luxury Holiday House - Lakefront - Expansive Views - SOLD


Retreat to this luxury holiday house on the shores of Lake Tinaroo on the Atherton Tablelands. Nestled on eight acres of remnant bushland, Malurus is a simply designed, carefully detailed home which optimises views over Lake Tinaroo. The residence has been constructed from sustainable materials and has a modern image with clean lines, large overhangs, an operable expanse of glass opening onto external living combined with the use of warm, natural materials such as sandstone and blackbean timber.

Extensively landscaped gardens are planted exclusively with native Australian flora. Abundant fauna make use of the ever-present flowers, presenting guests with the perfect opportunity to obtain close-up photography of some of Australias most beautiful birds. Not to mention the other unique wildlife that inhabits the waters of Lake Tinaroo.

All gardens are planted with native Australian flora to provide regrowth vegetation for native fauna. Rainwater is collected and used to water the gardens. All water used in the house is extracted from a deep-water well. Water quality testing indicates the water purity is higher than rainwater. Waste water is recycled and used to irrigate the gardens.

A large and spacious kitchen offers expansive lake and garden views. The kitchen fitment contains all the mod-cons with a Maytag refrigerator, Maytag convection microwave and huge Delonghi gas cook-top with electric oven. The kitchen flows out onto the deck area to make entertaining a dream. The views are simply stunning from the covered outdoor living area and deck. Ideal for entertaining there is a stainless steel barbeque, and a bar-fridge large enough to keep you well supplied with cold beverages. The perfect spot to enjoy your meal, bird-watch, or simply sit and enjoy the beautiful sunset over the lake.

The lounge area flows on from the kitchen, and contains comfortable couches which face the remote controlled, gas-powered Jetmaster fireplace to keep you warm on those cool winter evenings. The main bedroom contains a queen sized bed carved from beautiful native Red Cedar timber, by a local craftsman with matching bed-side tables created by Tolga Woodworks and large built-in wardrobes, crafted from black-bean timber. Sliding glass doors allow access to a small private deck to enjoy the views. Heating is provided by either the double-walled, gas-powered fireplace, or the Daikin reverse cycle airconditioner. The spacious adjoining ensuite contains a luxurious sunken spa-bath complete with overhead shower. Gaze through the huge glass doors across the gardens and down to the lake as you recline with your breakfast in bed, or enjoy the same views through the open sliding doors.

The second bedroom contains a queen sized bed, with bedside tables and offers lake and garden views. There are matching built-in cupboards identical to those in the main bedroom. Sliding glass doors from the bedroom allow access straight out onto the lawn. The third bedroom contains two single beds, with the option of joining them to make a double bed. Free standing wardrobe with ample storage for clothes. Reverse cycle airconditioning. Direct access to the garden, with garden views. A separate bathroom, providing a second toilet and shower, services guests and is located close to the second and third bedrooms.

An opportunity to secure one of few quality lakefront properties at Tinaroo. Based on the last sale of vacant land in the area in January this year at $800,000 this unique lifestyle property is priced well below replacement cost.
