"Birdwing" is a delightful home at Lakeside, on the outskirts of Yungaburra, a pretty village on the Atherton Tableland an hour from Cairns. It is two minutes from Lake Tinaroo with its boat launch areas for skiing, sailing, fishing, canoeing and wind-surfing.
Set in a large tropical garden, the house enjoys privacy and rural views. The easy-care garden is a haven for birds and the butterflies that gave the house its name. Amongst its attractions are a small rainforest, stately palms, a lily dell, a shade garden and several exotic fruit trees. Banks of flowering shrubs provide colour, interest and perfume.
Ideal for a family or holiday home – or an active retirement – “Birdwing” is built in two wings joined by an entrance hall: the front section, a high-set pole house built by a local builder for his own use, consists of a large sunny kitchen, an open-plan hexagonal living room with polished timber floor and cathedral ceiling, a bedroom, main bathroom and media room. All rooms have garden views and the living room and media room open on to the wrap-around deck. The house is fully screened against insects.
The spacious entrance hall leads to the back section of the house, which is on the same level and comprises three bedrooms (one with en suite), a second open area which can be used as a second sitting area, study or play room, and the laundry. The entrance is only one step up from the parking area, which accommodates four cars. The kitchen cabinetry is beautifully executed in timber, with extensive bench space and an island bench containing more storage space.
Reverse cycle air-conditioning in the pole house takes care of the occasional warm or cool day. All bedrooms have ceiling fans, and one has an air conditioner. There are two garden sheds, and a small storage or workshop room under the pole house. The house is engineered to the highest cyclone standards, and a nine-panel, 1.5Kw solar array ensures savings on electricity bills. The 2000W inverter leaves scope to add more panels. Set at the back of the 3078sq m block, the main house leaves plenty of room for a second dwelling, which is permitted under the Tablelands Regional Council Planning Scheme, or a larger shed.
