37-39 Fernando Road, Russell Island QLD 4184 View on map

Type: Other

Ever thought of living in a fairy glade with tall gums standing as sentries and edible gardens all around you?

Pluck a banana for breakfast and gather your medicinal herbs for morning tea, before making a crisp green salad for lunch, then relaxing in a hammock under the shade of the trees, in the afternoon…

This enchanting, level double-block on two separate titles, spans a whopping 1164m2!

Your own piece of paradise awaits with a Garden of Eden to tempt your taste-buds. A juicy grape vine clings lazily to a rail; mulberries, limes, lemons and bananas glisten in the sunshine; while apples, pears, macadamias and figs seek the shade. An abundant herb and vegie garden stands proud and awaits your daily visit.

With all the Council legwork done (hours of your life back), you’ll be happy to know there’s already:

  • Plumbing and Drainage certificate (pending)
  •  Current Building Application, Permit No: 9588
    • Container-home designed by Curlew Homes
    • Certified by Paul McHenry
    • Soil test for septic
    • Plumbing & septic plans
    • Water & power connected

Located about half-way down the island in a quiet area off Hemp Hill Road, you’ll find this superb set-up with all the conveniences of ‘home’, while you ‘build’:
• Level site, cleared with a ring of shady gums
• 22ft caravan & annexe
• Water tank connected (another one available)
• Outdoor gas bathroom
• Fridge & Cooker
• TV & phone reception
• Motor-home negotiable in sale (diesel, with solar panels, batteries, loo & shower)

The sale includes the main structures and supports for the container-home construction, with:
• Steel piers already in place, but easily reconfigured to your needs
• 3 x 40ft containers in excellent condition (8 feet high)
• 20-plus straight hardwood posts (milled onsite) for fences
• Bonus, old boat (art), established gardens with mature gums, fruit trees, herbs & vegetables
• Other building materials (negotiable)

Enjoy the peaceful surrounds while you finish building somebody else’s dream. For the savvy investor, keep one block to complete the approved build and sell-off the other. Or, perhaps even develop both sites?

Ideally, you’d retain the property as a large estate, capitalising on the tranquillity; that feeling of magic and mystery from a true fairy’s realm which can’t be recreated; and the fact you’d have a quirky container-home adding to the charm of living freely, amongst nature.

Central, yet secluded, you’re only a few minutes from anywhere on the island, with Wahine Drive boat ramp, Sandy Beach, Rocky Point and the Town Centre all close-by.

If you’re up for realising another’s dream and have the foresight to know a good deal when you see (or feel) one, this truly is a wonderful opportunity.

To make your mark on this land, call Chris McGregor on 0420 555 997 and keep the enchantment alive.
