For sale is a home located in a wonderful Queensland’s coastal town of Agnes Water/1770 situated on 4 acre, elevated, selectively cleared block of land, just a few minutes’ drive from the town centre with all amenities, pristine QLD Central Coast beaches, historical Town of 1770 and a short boat trip distance from Southern Great Barrier Reef and its magical islands.
The property is located in an area called ‘1770 Cove Estate’ in Agnes Water, just about 8 minutes’ drive from the town centre and the surfing beaches. The Cove Estate is a semi-rural part of the town, consisting of mainly 4-acre blocks.
The land is a 1.54 hectare, north-west facing block with sweeping views to the ocean and the hinterland from the top. The house site is approximately 100 metres above sea level at a position that cannot be built out, ensuring amazing views. The house is sheltered from harsh southerly winds at the back, but open to cooling sea breezes in the summer.
There is a winding driveway, mostly sealed, leading to the house and the house is not visible from the main road. The house surrounds are completely private.
At the bottom of the driveway by the road, there is 6.5 x 15 m shed. The shed includes separate 6.5 x 4.5 m office area, fully lined, tiled and air-conditioned, large workshop area with kitchen facilities, bathroom, plus another separate room with lined walls and timber floor. It is currently used as a workshop and office for our business but it could be used as a granny flat or a separate accommodation.
There are two rainwater tanks at the house totalling over 47,000 litres of water storage plus an additional 23,500 litre tank on the shed. There is a dam by the shed that fills fast with rain. The shed houses solar panels on the roof that help to lower the electricity costs and also feed into the grid.
There are established low maintenance gardens at various levels of the property including citrus, coconut and mango trees and banana plants.
Open plan lounge, dining, kitchen with two bedrooms, a bathroom with a view and large verandas on the upper level, plus one existing bedroom and all plumbing in place for an additional bedroom, bathroom and kitchen on the ground floor, ready to be built.
The house is environmentally friendly using harvested rainwater, Biolytics water treatment plant that feeds treated water to irrigation of established fruit trees and supplementary solar power from the panels on the shed. In winter the sun at low angle warms the house all day and in summer the constant sea breezes cool it to pleasant levels.
There is a slow combustion wood heater in the main living area for those wintery evenings and nights with plenty of free firewood on the property.
We have recently added a reverse cycle air conditioner to the open plan living area for those extra hot summer days or unexpected overnight cold snaps.
