|Serenity Set in Stone 'Castle on the Hill'|
|$2,825,000 - $3,107,000||
Rarely does a property this unique come onto the market. This spectacular stone home occupies an enviable position on a hill just outside of the village of Uki and combines architecture with science and art to create a modern and unique manor house.
Built solid like a Castle to withstand climate change yet beautiful like the Mona Lisa.
This magnificent property was designed as a Renaissance expression of three accomplished artists: Professor Robert Pope, Director of the Science-Art Research Centre, Robert Todonai and Irene Brown. The property is graced with their original artworks embedded in the walls, and also in the courtyards. The sale includes many of their artworks which consist of murals, dragon and gargoyle sculptures, and more.
Set among remnant rainforest, the home sits on 1.218 hectares, and includes two buildings and gardens, courtyards and sealed walking tracks. To the west you gaze upon the famous Mt Warning, the first place on the coast to see the sunrise. To the north are views of Queensland’s beautiful Springbrook mountain. To the south is subtropical rainforest, with a private dam and shared spring water bore.
Art, design and sustainability were front of mind when this stunning property was created. From the choice of natural materials, to the 4kW solar panels, this is a living design that seeks to be part of it’s natural surrounds and let the beauty of the land complement the design choices made in the built environment.
The home has plenty of room for those who love to entertain family and friends. It boasts five bedrooms - three with ensuites, two living rooms, two kitchens, an indoor garden atrium and a hall capable of seating 100 people including an upstairs entertainment room. The home can also be divided into two living spaces.
A sense of peace and stillness abounds in this property. Rather than dominate or overwhelm, the home’s proportions offer a quieting calm and sense of relaxation.
Meandering staircases, soaring ceilings (from 2.85 metres all the way up to 8 metres) and great halls are a feature and environmentally friendly rock from Uki Quarry, River Red Gum slabs and large, recycled, Oregon beams from Victoria are used in the building. Two huge redgum timber slab tables are included in the sale.
There is also a 150 square metre gatehouse consisting of three bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchenette and an open plan dining and living space.
Completing the facilities is a three-car carport to the front and a one-car carport to the rear.
Under planning provisions, for those who are interested in creating a healing retreat or just a tourist accommodation enterprise, it is possible to expand the facilities to include separate, additional accommodation.
Blessed with rich soil, the property also features a vegetable patch and perfumed, landscaped gardens. There are mango, mulberry, orange and apple trees.
It will be no surprise that this unique home has been featured on television and in magazines, including The Great Outdoors, Sydney Weekender and the UK’s World Unique Homes. It has also hosted fundraisers the Tweed Regional Art Gallery and operated as a registered bed and breakfast and wedding venue.
Your own, private oasis just 10 minutes to Murwillumbah and 35 minutes to the Gold Coast Airport, Coolangatta.
