Large bi-fold doors open the lounge out to a roofed entertaining terrace which projects forward on the northern aspect to add mountain escarpment views to the west. Designed by Award Winning Designer, Robert King, the residence is definitely an extremely comfortable home to live in and is also a very attractive and special piece of architecture.
Three further buildings are positioned, separated from the master residence and allowing complete privacy and seclusion from the master. A second residence is also designed by Robert King and is basically a smaller version of the master. Natural products have been used throughout and this residence includes a beautiful deck which orients north and takes in expansive views of the property and further into the Currumbin Valley. Double glazed semi commercial hopper windows are also featured and make a lovely addition for year round comfort.

Palasari Rainforest Estate is an exquisite master built private development, adjoining rainforest and is accessed by a three hundred and fifty metre asphalt driveway. Extensive advanced tropical and native gardens and landscaping envelope the estate and an array of birds and wildlife call the property and adjoining forest, home. The property is fully fenced (some electric and rural also) and is suitable for cattle or horses or other livestock. The soil is extremely fertile and the native and introduced grasses create a high stocking rate. An excellent set of stock yards have been purposely built and includes a loading race and ramp. A large dam which may be stocked with fish exists and a small jetty for recreational purposes has been erected. An extensive orchard is in place and supplies an abundant array of fruit, including, citrus, stone fruit, mangoes, avocados, star fruit, jak fruit, custard apples and guava. Two large vegetable gardens complete the Garden of Eden.
An opportunity exists for holiday accommodation type accommodation to be developed at Palasari Rainforest Estate. (STCA) Extensive enquiries regarding the construction of luxury cabins has revealed that a particular section of the property lends itself perfectly for this purpose. The property has a 600 metre road frontage and access is very good. A further opportunity also exists by way of "strata title subdivision" whereby the master residence on the portion of land which it is attached (about 1.5 acres) is divided from the remainder of the property, creating two separate titles. The elevation and selection of vegetation in relation to the master residence is such that complete privacy is assured. The Gold Coast City Council Planning model allows for either or both of these opportunities and both are very feasible and within the planning structure.
Palasari Rainforest Estate is indeed an impressive property, built to the highest standards and is sure to delight. It is an extremely unique property, given the seclusion, privacy and location (proximity to Currumbin Valley Rockpool). The property has been carefully priced to sell and all genuine enquirers are urged to consider. The owners are motivated to sell due to financial and personal reasons.
