Exciting, Unexpected and a Little Avant-Garde- Enjoy a slice of unsurpassed Noosa hinterland
- 17 minutes to Noosa Main beach and Hasting Street
- North-facing frontage onto Lake Macdonald
- Majestically poised along a country lane on 21 Acres
What a sense of arrival when the cedar and double glass doors are flung open. Eyes are immediately drawn to the grey Tasmanian oak on the foyer and living area floors, and the massive deck areas and lawns beyond, before being totally transfixed on what appears to be an aquatic playground, fringed by parklands and mountains, stretching across180 degrees. There's a real sense of being on an island.
Once inside, an ambient calm associated with an intimate-in-scale, small boutique hotel pervades. It's akin to being in a private home with communal living spaces where guests can interact over common interests such as art, food, health and well-being.
Majestically poised along a country lane on 8.74 hectares, it's easy to be seduced by the north-facing frontage onto Lake Macdonald, which has a catchment area of 49.0km2, is home to a wide variety of wildlife. Drop a line over the side from a canoe, kayak or sail boat and expect a tug from bass, saratoga, perch or Mary Valley cod.
Favourite spots for flocks of birdlife are the dam, native trees, orchard and a water feature with tempting fish just near the children's playground.
A home is never replete without art, sculptures or statement pieces, so with cathedral ceilings and extra wide walls in the over-generous entertaining spaces, this is an art collector's dream space-come-true.
The simplicity of the interior combined with natural materials and earthy tones, inspires, nurtures and spells relaxed sophistication.
Let's not forget the fun factor. The big kitchen, equipped with two Baumatic ovens and a Bosch induction stove-top, is strategically positioned to ensure friends and family celebrating alfresco, lolling on numerous sofas, sitting at the dining room table or catching rays beside the saltwater pool, are easily and well looked after.
The king bedroom suite has a wide private deck with more beautiful views, a marble-tiled bathroom and walk-in robe; a junior suite has a walk-in robe; a study and powder room are off the foyer; two bedrooms with their own entrance and a bathroom are currently used for massage therapy and office storage; plus upstairs in the guest wing is a self-contained apartment-style studio which opens onto a deck and overlooks the gardens.
"The location is just 17 minutes from Noosa's main beach," enthuse Tom Offermann agents Cameron Urquhart and Tiffany Wilson, who are looking for a result on auction day or an offer beforehand. "And let's not forget some of the other features such as terraces and decks on three sides, a very large greenhouse with a potting set-up, and a sealed private courtyard with guest parking.
"The current owner considers the property a haven where the hustle and bustle can be traded for a rejuvenating retreat. It really is idyllic for a tree and sea changer."
