21 Carroo Lane, Ridgewood, Queensland


Immerse yourself into this property - there is no other way to actually describe the green wonderland that awaits you at Ridgeway Retreat. One must come take a look if wanting to purchase a lush tropical retreat style property.
Keep in mind, this property is not just about two homes stuck on top of a hill - this is a world away from just brick and mortar.

Literally 8 minutes from the township of Cooroy, 22 minutes from the central hub of Noosaville, and 30 minutes to Noosa Beach and Hastings Street. 10 acres of elevated rainforest, ensures you live in peace, tranquility and privacy, without the problem of isolation.

Access is through a remotely controlled gate, up the winding driveway to the two homes. The grand rustic main home is entered through a soaring foyer, opening to the TV area, kitchen to the right and a lounge. Two bedrooms and one bathroom on this level, and then upstairs to the bridge linking the two master bedrooms, at opposite ends of the top floor, decks off each. Back to the lower level, and a huge deck along the view side, which overlooks the half acre dam and stunning landscape. The second house is all on one level, linked to the main home by a timber breezeway. Entry is through a covered external entertaining area, into the living/TV rooms, adjacent to the kitchen and dining.
Multi-generational living at its best. In all, around 579 m2 internally and 318m2 externally – room for everyone. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are at the end of the house, accessing again the continuing deck from home 1. Between the two homes is the watefall pool and its linked entertaining area. The cascading waterfall instils a sense of calm. Again, plenty of room, both covered under a thatched roof Bali hut, and open air, with a BBQ and preparation area. Behind is the very useful arts and crafts studio – it has seen good use with our current owners – maybe its yoga for you?

Extensive use has been made of natural timbers and materials in the homes – cypress pine and Oregon, and the worktops and stairs
are made from one single Sydney Blue Gum tree. Both homes have wood-burning heaters, and there is plenty of cut firewood ready for when it gets cold! Both stoves are dual fuel, and high quality. To top it off, we have 4.6 kw of solar power on the roof.

The spring fed as well as catchment dam spills over a causeway to the creek. The blend of palm groves around the dam leads to the rainforest area proper, threaded by another creek with attractive conversation areas and billabongs – soaring fig trees, bloodwoods, wild gingers.
Wildlife abounds – platypus, bearded water dragons, and all manner of birds, to name a few,
parrots, doves, owls, lorikeets, kookaburras and finches.
A theme everywhere is ample parking – 4 cars under the house and massive expanse of garaging, workshops and sheds -
room for boats, cars and machinery not too far from the main houses. We believe room for between 8 and 11 cars in all.
Behind is the pest proofed garden enclosure for your herbs and veggies. Also, a vermin proof chook run and shed.

The opportunities are endless, everything from a natural health retreat, through Airbnb to simply a refuge for you and your family to indulge your desire to fulfill your lifestyle ambitions and dreams.
A perfect home for an extended family and/or guests.
