The Figs, Cnr Harley St & Kamerunga Rd, Cairns

"The Figs" Cnr Harley St & Kamerunga Rd - Sprawling acreage oasis, unsurpassed in seclusion, tropical tranquility and historic charm

Imagine a place where time seems to stand still, natural beauty and tranquility greet you at every turn, and the whirlwind of life recedes from the moment you arrive. It is heaven on earth, and it awaits at "The Figs". Cocooned within a magnificent canopy of tropical greenery, this 1.82 hectare (4.5 acre) oasis represents a dream lifestyle and rare opportunity. Held by the same family for three decades, and with just three owners in its 126-year history, it promises unsurpassed seclusion and serenity approximately 15 minutes from the Cairns CBD..

Guarded by giant 130-year-old fig trees, these stand sentinel over the sprawling plantation-style home. Soaring ceilings enhance the sense of light and space, while quality marble and timber finishes evoke warmth and charm. Along with an updated kitchen, dining area, lounge room with a vaulted ceiling and expansive billiards room, it features six bedrooms – or use one as a home office – four stylish bathrooms. Additionally, car enthusiasts or collectors will appreciate a double garage beneath the home and separate five-car garage.


Outdoors, asphalt pathways meander throughout the landscaped gardens and manicured lawns, offering enchanting spots for a family picnic or to steal a moment of solitude. Entertaining is effortless too, with a wraparound alfresco terrace and a championship tennis court ready to do double duty and host grand-scale celebrations. Amongst it all, an award-winning resort-style pool takes centre stage, with the mosaic tiles shimmering in the sunshine. Nestled next to a cabana, it's perfectly placed for you to settle back with a drink and watch fun unfold pool-side or court-side.

Occupying a remarkably convenient location, "The Figs" delivers the best of both worlds. Steeped in peace and privacy, it is a paradise that offers close proximity to schools, shops, beaches and James Cook University. And while this historic haven has been much loved, it is time for a new generation of happy memories to be made here. You could travel the world, but coming home has never felt so good than here at "The Figs". To start the conversation, contact Matt Powe today.
