Angela Martin: Hi, I’m Angela Martin, and welcome to number 9 Masons Road in Kuranda. Masons Road is one of the most sought-after locations in the whole of Kuranda. Lots and lots of reasons, but a couple are that we are just so close to Kuranda Village. Unbelievably close to world-famous Barron Falls Gorge and, of course, National Park. We have the most stunning beautiful magnificent rainforest. Behind this closed, wooden, chunky, fabulous doors about a 60-meter meandering driveway that takes you through about 2.6 acres of your own fabulous rainforest. I mean fabulous rainforest. Then it opens out into a private hidden sanctuary. Let’s go in and have a good old explore ready to build your dream.
I just wanted us to walk along part of the driveway so that you get a sense of just how long it actually is. In the Wet Tropics, the sound of the rain on things like a big– Look at that. That’s on your driveway, big fan palms. Just imagine the pitter-patter. It’s like one of those sounds. It’s like bird song or any animal sound. It’s so unique, and it’s so specific to living in this fantastic part of the world. [sighs] I can’t believe we’ve just come off Masons Road.
I’m just going to spin around. We’ve come up and over that a little hill, a little hump in the driveway. I did say that we open up into this majestic, and I mean majestic oasis, which is ready to build. Before we head down there, I just want you– Again, we’re on your driveway. We haven’t even gotten to the juicy bits yet. Just the sense of the trees, and the sparkly light and all the different palms. It is magical, absolutely, magical. Let’s get down there and have a good old explore.
I don’t know what a lot of these trees are called. Anyone who is watching probably goes, “Angela, that’s a– whatever it might be.” Look, this is just spectacular. Rainforest does not get any better than this in Far North Queensland. Of course, you got little orchids just coming out of the bottom of the tree. It’s something like Jurassic Park. You know how you see the jungly feel with Jurassic Park? This is what it feels like. It’s just brilliant. Let’s turn a little heads over here. Wow, look at that palm, look, look, look, look, look. We haven’t gotten to the opening yet. Now, I’m going to do this so you get a sense of just how big– I’m going to lean against it. That is massive. That is glorious. Absolutely just beyond excitement.
This, you would have to imagine coming home at the end of the day and we open up. We have got complete privacy. It is hidden from the whole of the world. This is beyond magic. Absolutely, it’s breathtaking, absolutely, breathtaking. You can see that all the hard work has been done for building your house. Now, you don’t have to build your house there. We’ve actually got split level. The land is cleared here.
We go up and over the other side. We will have an explore. Then we have a section that goes all the way down to the bottom where we’ve got a shade house. I don’t know if you notice, but as we come down the driveway, we’ve got mains water. We have provision for power as well. [exhales] Just take this in. Just do a bit all the way around, and then we’re going to head over there and have a closer look.
I’m very rarely a bit speechless or lost for words, but when walk onto properties, you get a sense very, very quickly of the feel of a property. I don’t know if you can hear that bird song. It’s everywhere. It’s absolutely everywhere. There’s an energy. There’s a sparkle. There’s a feel. You really do feel like you’re in your own little world. Look at these gardens. They split the level between, for example, your house pad and a driveway down to, just for orientation, down to where there is a really big shade house. You could use that for growing your food, or just for germination of little plants. All the infrastructure and everything is here literally to build.
What a dream it would be to build? Now, we’re going to head over down this way because at that section, not only have we got natives, beautiful palms, exotic gingers, but we’ve also got a seasonal creek. They are going to attract all sorts of fabulous wildlife in this brilliant part of the Wet Tropics. The other things too, we face northeast. If you build your house here, you are not going to get battered with the western sun. Even the orientation of the land is just brilliant.
Look at this. Just look at this. I don’t know where you are in the world, but mother nature at its best. They’ve got beautiful, the little costus, I think they’re called, a version of ginger. They have little velvety gorgeous leaves. Of course, all the little animals come and they suck the water and a little bit of juicy bits that the flowers hold, tree ferns, [exhales] variegated gingers. We’re going to head down there before I explode.
Oho, look at these. Look at these torch gingers, wow. That is like some, you know how you get porcelain dolls? Well, these are like flowers set in porcelain and wax. They are beautiful. Now, I want you before we have a look at the creek and the shade house, I just wanted us to see how gorgeous the split level on the land. It’s just been sculpted magnificently. We’ve got native Lomandra. They’re great for stabilization, and the little birds come and eat all the native flowers that come out of them couple times a year. That would be where the house pad is, where you would possibly want to build.
Then you could have all your infrastructure for you, like I said, growing your food, or your veggies. You could even put fruit trees, extra fruit trees in if you wanted to. These are glorious, a lot of exotic palms. Oh, look at that palm. Oh, this down here. This is great. Now the creek is a seasonal creek. It runs all the way down through in here. We’ll just go down. We’ll have a little peek because where there is your ferns and your water, you’re going to get wallabies and all sorts of wildlife coming down into your garden.
Well, you get them in your garden anyway. If you do have water, it’s just a great little spot for them [sighs] to say, “Let’s have a little tea party, but we’ll just have a little slop out there at the creek.” It’s magnificent to watch. Again, look at this palm. I should know the name of it, but I don’t. It’s just got all these beautiful pink and orange bits on the bark. Then again, licualas are fan palms. Now, [clears throat] these are really slow to grow so they are old. Don’t know how old they are, but they are old. Then if we just do a little spin around here, again, we get a sense of the driveway coming down and again, that glorious sculpting, oh, just marvelous.
Now the shade house is about, well, roughly 8 meters, maybe by 5 meters. It’s got gravel on it. We have got water taps as about five or six different water taps all throughout the property. If you want to use via irrigation, or you just want to access to all your taps, it is town water so don’t have to worry about anything there. That’s beautiful bench, you can actually get up to the house pad along that section there. Just look at this. Look at this. You’re with an easy distance to everything that I spoke about at the beginning. It really is just– it’s hard to believe, actually. Now, we can have a quick look in here. It’s just shade cloth, but it’s handy shade cloth.
Let’s have a little, woo. This is up with the star pickets, but you can see that we are not sloshing around here in mud, in any shape or form. We’ve got the irrigation system. Can you hear the difference? There’s no echo. It dampens it. This is real good quality shade cloth. Of course, we’ve got a mains tap. I keep going on about the mains tap water, but this will give us– Whoops, we’ll go then this way. You can see the pipe coming out here. Then I just want to show you the water pressure, because again, if you want to do your sprinklers, if you want to fill basins for your little animals, plenty, plenty, plenty of pressure.
We’ve got a tap just right in here. I hope I’m not going to squish everyone. Let’s have a little look here. I’m going to give it a go. [water splashes] Woohoo. You can see that you’ve got water. Of course, that is again, just part off the creek. If you just look through there and up into those trees, [sighs] life does not get any better than this. That feeds the soul, truly amazing.
I have this fascination with water. Speaking of which, nowhere else in the whole wide world, there probably is, but in the Wet Tropics, we’re starting to get those little soft, little bits of rain coming in. I don’t know if you can see them, but they feel just brilliant. Of course, we’ve got that combined with blue sky. Where else in the whole wide world, like I said, probably lots of places, but this just adds to the whole feel of living in the Wet Tropics.
Now, we have some cables sticking out the ground here. We mentioned at the beginning that we have provisioned for power and, of course, clearly we’ve got plenty of water. The power conduit comes down the right-hand side of the driveway, and it actually comes up here. Those cables are not live, but it’d be very straightforward for you to actually hook up at the Mason’s road end.
Of course, anywhere on the property that you would want to use, your power can be taken up from the driveway up to the house or pulled down here, if you wanted to do something else they in here. Look, I didn’t even notice the gorgeousness of that palm before. It’s like something out of, dare I say, the botanic gardens only on steroids, because this is combination of nature’s own plus some of those natives and exotics that we spoke about. We’re just going to head back up here. I’m going to do a bit of a quick wrap-up.
Why would you buy this fabulous property at number 9 Mason’s Road in fabulous Wet Tropics of Kuranda? Well, you have this natural, natural, hidden oasis, a genuine sanctuary. Nature’s trees are your fence. It is just, I don’t know if it’s fate, I don’t know if it’s a little freak of nature, but you really do feel like you have this gorgeous little envelope of just sheer beauty all around you. It is ready to build your dream. You can just walk up the driveway or drive up the driveway, turn right and head into Kuranda village for coffee or breakfast, shopping, whatever you would like to do. Of course, you then just head back around this way.
With the, and I called it the world-famous Barron Falls because they are. You can Google them. You could hear them roar in the wet season. It would almost be like being at the beach. I know that seems probably a bit silly, but you can hear almost like waves coming down from the falls. You’re lying in bed in the morning or at night and if you’re not listening to bird song or silence, you can hear the rush off the water.
Unbelievable beauty and, of course, look at the sparkly sky. Let’s look at this backdrop. Look at those tree ferns. Look at the gorgeous gardens. It is all here for you on 2.6 glorious acres. Give me a call, Angela Martin, 0403 788 187 or visit the website, angelamartin.tv. You are going to be blown away by this secret little hidden paradise. I look forward to being able to show you your new dream.
