Alkira's asking price down

Alkira, the Cape Tribulation trophy home, has had a massive asking price reduction from $15 million down to $8.8 million.

This however followed a two year increase from $9 million hopes to $15 million after it hit the market in December 2013.

The vendors, stamp collector Rodney Perry and wife Marider are open to discussing any reasonable offer for the site that cost them $1.75 million in 2006.

David Cotton of Raine & Horne Port Douglas has taken over the newly priced listing of 3726 Cape Tribulation Road.

Designed by multi award-wining architect Charles Wright, the home looks like something you'd see in the sky rather than on the ground.

The home looks like its floating on the water which surrounds it.

Set on 29.5 hectares, the home splits off into six separate bedrooms pods, all with en suites and five with balconies which protrude over the lake.

The estate also features a study fitted with marble benches, a spacious open air theatre with an 84 inch LED flat screen and a helipad located 100 metres from the property

A large standalone plunge pool fills the middle of the home and is met by an outside kitchen and quirky seating area.

With a completely self sufficient water supply and power, Alkira harnesses its energy and water from the natural surrounding.

The property won the 2014 Queensland Architecture Award and is the only place in the world covered by two World Heritage listings – one for the Great Barrier Reef and one for the Wet Tropics heritage area.
