Welcome to Kingfisher Bend, also known as 745 Ringtail Creek Road Pomona. Having just undergone a recent renovation and beautiful freshen up this property is now a must see and yours for the taking!
This property lies between a border of many kilometres of rainforest soon to be deemed as national park and a southern border of six mile creek that is a permanent and valuable water resource uniquely given to the owners that no other property in the vicinity has access too. The Rainforest on the property is home to many rare and beautiful birds like the Regent and Satin Bower birds, King Parrots, Dollar Birds, colourful finches and many more. Along with the privately owned rainforest which boasts many luxurious trees like the Queensland Maple, Quandongs, orchids and palms just to name a few are also many fruit and nut trees; including all citrus, olives, coffee, lychee, mango, banana, pecan and macadamia just to name a few.
A large dam provides ample drinking water for cattle and horses and at its peak holds a whopping 9 million litres of water.
The 95000 litre 12 x6m swimming pool has its own gravity fed water tank supply. Since installing shade sails over the pool 3 years ago it has not needed the water topping up.
Landscaping around the pool and house is worth noting. Manicured lawns are complemented by sandstone rock walls, a rear courtyard, fish pond with tranquil waterfall, and 100 year old bridge timber retaining walls in the landscaped pool area showcase exotic orchids, elkhorns and sweet smelling jasmine. On dusk the gardens come alight with twinkling solar lights highlighting the many tropical palms and lush garden beds. Alongside the pool is the fully screened “Aussie bush style” entertainment area with bar, gas stove, double bowl sink and kitchen cupboards. A great spot to unwind on a hot lazy summers eve.
Electricity bills are at a minimum thanks to the combination of eco design, LED lighting, solar hot water and gas cooktops in the house, the 1 bedroom 1 bathroom cottage and the outdoor entertainment area.
Underground power services all 4 buildings on this property ie the homestead, cottage,entertainment area and shed. It runs from the front gate all the way down to the pump in the creek.
The main building is a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home and like the rich and beautiful land its on it is also uniquely individual having been solidly constructed of at least 70% recycled timbers, windows and building materials. From the carefully selected eco ply walls and floors to the strength and beauty of the exposed cypress ceiling beams the home exudes rare character. The many tall windows invite the outside in, views across the gardens and property are seen from every window.
The homestead design is totally climate savvy. Insulation, big windows, breezeways, wide verandas, undercover decking and patios, wide eaves, ceiling fans, skylight, insect screens and large open plan rooms mean this is a very liveable comfortable home with no need for expensive air-conditioning. For cosy winter warmth there is a wood fireplace in the family TV living room, the flue goes up through the house radiating warmth throughout the upper rooms. Firewood of course is free and plentiful, there for the taking in the property’s very own rainforest.
A french provincial style kitchen with dining room is complemented by solid timber cupboards and gives ample space for entertaining. The more formal living room is completely encased by floor to ceiling Windows of eco glass for light and temperature control. Its a delight to sit in this room in any weather or any time of day and take in the glorious vista of gardens, forest and birds that unfolds before you. The fully restored 150 year old fireplace with imported french limestone tiles is another special feature of this inviting room.
Last but definitely not least is the man cave. A huge 200 sq m 4 bay shed/workshop with car hoist and 15 amp power. Home to tractor, slasher, mower and farm equipment and with 4 car parks it is the “engine room” of Kingfisherbend. An additional rustic style carport gives a further two carparks.
