241 High Central Rd Macleay Island, QLD 4184 Virtual Tour View on map

Ever dreamed of a secret garden with meandering pathways and magical spaces?

Mermaid Cottage offers a light and airy open-plan home, with large picture windows bringing the outdoors inside, framed by lush gardens providing dappled shade and birdsong.

An east-facing corner block midway up the island, you enter your secure and fully-fenced level yard from the quiet side-street on Derwent, where you also access the garage (adjacent to the house, making shopping runs convenient to the back door).

This fairytale oasis comes with many extras, including a wood-fireplace (Scandia) and a fully-stocked woodshed complete with pine-cones. For the warmer weather, there’s a brand new oversized air-conditioner and ceiling fans in all rooms. Cool tiled floors connect the space, with a covered pergola at the back for private entertaining and a shade-sail floating above the front verandah, to enjoy a coffee with neighbours while overlooking the lawn.

You’re greeted by an impressive living area with charcoal feature wall and a separate dining alcove, leading to a white-washed timber kitchen with timber benchtops. There’s plenty of cupboard storage, a large pantry, dishwasher, gas cooking, electric oven and a surprise shiny red door to take you outside, which is a bonus for pets or hanging the washing from your internal laundry.

2 large bedrooms are thoughtfully separated by the living zones. The master has a boudoir touch with its additional cosy dressing room and direct access to the bathroom.

Surrounded by nature and greenery, you can’t help but feel happy here. But that could be a hangover from the past, as this little mermaid was once the original ‘sly pub’ of Macleay Island, with a poker-machine and barmaid. True story. Oh, if these walls could talk!

This rare mermaid beckons, so request a viewing before she’s gone for good.
