Stunning tree-top mansion in the Daintree Rainforest hits the market

A stunning three-storey timber and glass mansion nestled amongst the trees on 2.5 secluded acres in the Daintree Rainforest has hit the market, with an asking price of $1.65 million.

Known as the Magnificent Barn, and with breathtaking views of the Coral Sea coast, the property has been listed by Mark Whitham from Raine & Horne Port Douglas/Mossman

The unique home, perched amongst the trees, features three expansive verandahs with large decks, a massive open-plan living area, a crystal-clear pool, while still having modern services like satellite internet.

Mr Whitham said the property had many features that were sure to attract buyers seeking seclusion and luxury, including the red cedar cladding and Oregon timber ceilings, and an ornate timber porch that leads to double front doors, opening to a world of grandeur and luxury.

“Upon entering, buyers are greeted by a massive open living area with slate floors, exposed timber beams, and ample space for a pool table, dining area, lounge area, reading and relaxing areas,” Mr Whitlam said.

“This level also features its own beautifully finished bathroom.

“Twenty-two bi-fold timber and glass doors, along with giant timber-framed picture windows, offer outstanding ocean and rainforest views from any spot on this level.”

The open-plan living area, with a lofty ceiling, also includes a kitchen with two entries and a servery out to the verandah area. 

The kitchen features polished granite benchtops, an island bench cooktop, a dishwasher, a wall oven, and delightful views.

A wooden staircase in the middle of the open-plan area leads upstairs to the top level and downstairs to the pool level.

The top floor features a large multipurpose foyer, with polished hardwood timber floors and a vast bedroom with ample space for a sitting area. 

This bedroom has timber and glass bi-fold doors opening onto its large private deck with incredible views.

The pool level features a massive timber verandah and deck, a large crystal-clear pool, two more bedrooms with ensuites, timber and glass bifold doors, and huge picture windows with majestic views on three sides.

A bore water pump is installed, providing abundant crystal-clear water worth bottling, and a professionally installed 4-volt battery bank, inverter, and generator provide reliable power.

Mr Whitham said the Cow Bay home was designed and built in 1991 by the vendor’s mother, whose visionary design has stood the test of time.

“The vendor is selling the property to take up an opportunity in Indonesia,” he said.

“We’ve already received positive reactions to the property, and with such an affordable price tag, we don’t expect it to stay on the market for long.”

Mr Whitham said the property could attract a diverse range of buyers.

“While it might appeal to an owner-occupier, it’s more likely to attract a family seeking an idyllic Daintree escape who can appreciate its true value,” he said.
