Muralug, also known as Prince of Wales Island, is located past the tip of the Cape York Peninsula in the Torres Strait. With an area of 204.6km2* and a width of 18.6kms*, Prince of Wales is the largest island in the Torres region which includes more than 274 islands and a population of over 5,000. Thursday Island which is the administrative and commercial hub of the Torres Strait Islands is located a short 10-minute boat ride from Prince of Wales.

Lot 104 Muralug Beach Road, Prince of Wales is an elevated lot on the eastern side of the island and is improved with two dwellings which include a small cottage as well as a 4-bedroom residence. The 1,214m2* freehold site benefits from uninterrupted ocean views from both buildings as the rear of the site is slightly elevated.

The main home features 4 good sized bedrooms (each with built-ins) on the second level as well as a laundry, shower and separate toilet. The top level provides an open plan living space with wrap around kitchen and a huge 4 metre deck with stunning views running the full 12 metre length of the building. Power is provided by 34 solar panels with 5000W and 4000W Photovoltaic String Inverters and a GNB storage Battery Array. The lower cottage provides an additional 2 bedrooms, open plan lounge and kitchen with toilet, shower and laundry. The cottage also has a large front deck running its full width. The property has a concreted drive way as well as a small elevated work shed and freestanding carport.

Boasting views across the Torres Strait and direct beach access, this lifestyle property could suit many uses ranging from family home to weekender getaway or even have commercial possibilities, as a holiday let home. Both homes require some maintenance and repairs but opportunities like this are a rarity and the Torres Strait provides an incredible backdrop.
