Epic rainforest estate comes with three dwellings, half a mountain, waterfall

An enticing opportunity to secure a private estate on 78ha, including half a mountain and a chunk of hinterland with a waterfall and swimming hole, has sparked a flood of interest.

The sprawling property at 1730 Currumbin Creek Road in the lush Currumbin Valley in Queensland features three separate dwellings across seven titles, for a circa $10 million price.

Selling agent Shelley Watkins from PRD Burleigh Heads said she was struck by the sheer rock face of the mountain, which is part of the property, when viewing the estate for the first time.

“This is one of the most sought-after suburbs on the Gold Coast, with close proximity to beaches and the airport,” Ms Watkins said.

“The estate is incredibly private. This sort of land size, almost 194 acres, is rarely found.”

The main residence is a tastefully restored original homestead with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a modern kitchen with granite benchtops and Tasmanian maple cabinetry, an office, large covered outdoor entertaining spaces, and an in-ground swimming pool.

Elsewhere on the grounds of the former banana plantation is a second home with two bedrooms, a cosy living room with fireplace, a kitchen, and outdoor entertaining area.

And a cabin with a kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom, and veranda is nearby, offering a multitude of possible uses.

“Rustic country barns add to the character, with multiple machinery sheds also onsite,” Ms Watkins said.

“Water is abundant too, and the land encompasses several large paddocks ready to accommodate cattle and sheep.”

The three dwellings are enveloped by a botanical garden, with hundreds of imported rare and endangered species, and a substantial natural subtropical rainforest.

“The vendors are moving on to the next chapter in life,” Ms Watkins said of the reason for the sale.

And it seems a new custodian could be found for the estate sooner rather than later.

“We’ve had a huge amount of enquiry and are currently working with a few buyers who are doing their due diligence.

“It’s a property that would suit people looking for a getaway or retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, or potentially developers who may see the commercial potential for a venture like a health retreat.”
