Luxurious Coastal LifestyleWalk through the Provence-style courtyard, a striking entrance foyer and fall in love. Instantly.
Be overwhelmed by the sense of serenity which pervades throughout, is enhanced by the quality of natural light, also connections with the elements. And it all seems to unfold before your eyes, from the vast U-shaped living space to the stunning north-westerly vistas such as Laguna Bay and Forty Mile Beach.
Renowned Robinson Architects created a glamorous home worthy of the pages of Architectural Digest. The design takes its cues from fluidity between inside and outside whilst leveraging the landscape.
The level of detail is extraordinary,with beguiling moods achieved through light, whether walls of louvres or panes is visually arresting, and light streams, from the open energy-efficient Vergola roof system, seem to shimmer on the suspended polished concrete floors. In addition, the height of the approximately 5m wide bank of remote-controlled bi-fold doors, which pleat upwards, is not fully appreciated until standing (and no doubt reclining), in the very impressive main master suite (with complementary 5-star bathroom and robe accoutrements), on the mezzanine level.
Every zone of the living space is on-song with an absolutely fabulous Noosa lifestyle. Taking centre stage in the kitchen wing is a 5m spotted gum island bench; stainless steel work surfaces atop plentiful storage cupboards; and timber slatted doors peel away to reveal a butler's pantry. Taking a more sumptuous viewpoint are sofas for serious nappers, book worms and sunset gazers.
It's easy to surmise that life was meant to be easy in the more casual zone. Three barbeques, two fridge/freezers and bench space for wine buckets and a smorgasbord line the wall; you can prop at the bar to drink in the views; or just relax al fresco.
The conduit to the U-shape is the dining space, arguably the best seats in the house. Nearby is an office with two walls of remote-controlled windows plus a powder room.
Pop downstairs to the temperature controlled cellar and note the open fireplace in the main living room which opens out to the lanai and pool area, similarly two generous bedroom suites. There's also a laundry and just outside the rear door is a roller-doored storage facility and a terrace which currently houses a gym.
"This prestige and secluded residence sits up high and mighty so there are sweeping views from Noosa Main Beach, Noosaville waterways and the Noosa River to Lake Macdonald,the hinterland and Mt Cooroy," comments Tom Offermann Real Estate's Mal Cox, who's taking the property to auction on 12 August.
"It really is the height of luxury, has an architectural edge and is in a quiet leafy street, just minutes away from Noosa's surf beaches. Also if you think the furniture suits, it stays. The owners are reluctantly returning to their homeland and cannot take it with them."
