64-66 Scotts Rd Macleay Island, QLD Virtual Tour View on map

Here’s your chance to secure a rare island property on a single title, with instant street appeal and verdant established gardens surrounding this Dutch barn-style, double-storey home.

Feel the privacy offered by the giant golden-cane palms and tropical tree canopy as you enter this versatile abode. Currently fenced to create two separate residences, each with a private yard, productive exotic fruit trees & vegetable patch, timber decks, outdoor shower, parking, electricity meter and water tanks. Plus, there’s a solar hot water system servicing both, to curb utility costs.

Whisper-quiet, this setting is like a piece of England, nestled off Brisbane. A true self-sufficient ‘farmlet’, you could easily convert to a large family home or keep the existing footprint and benefit from dual-living B&B income, or accommodate the extended family.

Downstairs comprises:
• self-contained 1-bedroom garden villa
• private entry via full-length covered veranda
• tiled throughout with security screens and ceiling fans
• full-size white kitchen with breakfast bar, dishwasher, corner pantry, electric oven and cooktop
• master bedroom with built-in-robe
• laundry leading to outdoor deck, tool shed and garden
• separate toilet and bathroom
• under stairs storage and linen cupboard adjacent to laundry
• open-plan lounge and dining with access via double sliders to front deck
• carport and storage shed

A nifty double-sided lockable door allows entry to upstairs if required, or keep locked for restricted access and privacy.

Upstairs offers:
• self-contained 1-2 bedroom sky-garden apartment
• private entry via side of house opens to a vestibule
• Moroccan-inspired staircase leads you upstairs
• open-plan living and dining with Fujitsu air con
• sliders to timber deck with private alfresco seating lends an airy tree-house effect
• covered area for all-weather entertainment
• funky kitchenette with breakfast bar, dishwasher and butler’s pantry
• floating timber floors throughout this spacious level
• wide-door openings, security screens and ceiling fans
• full-width atrium-style sunroom with multiple windows for cross-flow ventilation
• built-in bookcases line the hallway to master bedroom with double built-in robes
• bathroom with laundry facilities and space for a bath
• separate toilet and vanity
• garden, chicken coop and animal enclosure
• double lock-up garage and workshop

This ergonomic Colourbond and Hardiplank home has LED lights, new plumbing, hand rails and safety grabs installed. There’s even a winch to bring the shopping up, or convert it to a 1-person lift, for which it was engineered.

Although a little tired after a lot of living, this 20-year-old barn just needs a water-blast and a lick of paint to restore her vibrancy. While a green corridor view to Lamb Island, vacant blocks behind (perhaps acquire them to increase your acreage) and few neighbours, give a sense of wide open space to this abundant property.

The outdoors promotes organic permaculture living, with raised garden beds, water tanks, workshop, chicken coop and a North-East aspect for shade and bay breezes to soothe the midday sun. Harvest the fruit from your orchard of nectarine, guava, mango, lemon, lime, lychee, fig, banana and papaya trees. Pluck a passionfruit or two and gather flowers for the table. It’s all here for the taking.

Get your hands dirty and your feet grounded while growing your own food on this prime, island eco-land-holding.
