'Janellganell' is a unique opportunity to own one of Far North Queensland's iconic properties. The ulitmate position in Cooktown with breathtaking views from this private retreat. Similar to living a tropical island lifestyle with the benefit of the amenities of the local township being only minutes away.

A secluded lifestyle like no other. It's the nature of this property that must be experienced. Words and photographs do not do it justice. Becoming part of "Janellganell" happens. The smells of Grassy Hill and the Coral Sea are forever.

1.707 hectares (4.22 acres) of natural beauty surrounded by the proposed Grassy Hill Environmental Park. The only neighbour is the 1882 Cooktown Lighthouse, beaming down from above.

This unique property has breathtaking panoramic views. The Coral Sea with its reefs and close by shipping. Rainforest clad Mt Cook, with hills and valleys to its base. A pristine coastline, with 20 kms of beaches, just as Captain James Cook charted back in 1770. It's only a ten minute bush walk to secluded and beautiful Cherry Tree Bay. The driveway entrance looks down over Cooktown with panoramic views and glorious sunsets over the Endeavour River.

The original 1913 Wireless Station has been lovingly restored, extended and converted into what is now one of Australia’s most unusual homes. It has evolved as a creation of its owner into an interesting and unique home for you to enjoy the peace and tranquility that the location offers.

The main residence is positioned on the headland and blends with the natural beauty of the flora and fauna. Solidly concrete construction and surrounded on two sides by a stone masons crafted embankment.

The second dwelling on the property is an open plan detached Artist Studio built out of river stones, driftwood, slate and sails. Its views are timeless, the pastel colours of distant ranges with the Coral Sea splashing on the coast below.

The whole property is self sufficient with solar power, rain water, satellite TV and a radio telephone. Situated 4.5hrs from Cairns via the inland road and only 3.5hrs from Port Douglas via the magnificent Coast Road surrounded by world heritage rainforest.

"Janellganell" has been created and loved by its current owner for almost thirty years.

A fun place to live, where it's very easy to get away from it all.

No one lived in it previously. He is seeking another chapter in life, another dream to build and enjoy.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
