9 Wild Apple Court,
Noosa Heads, QLD
Urban Sanctuary Exudes StyleClassic yet edgy design functionality, luxury living, plus maximising light and air flow, melds effortlessly with green spaces and water features. Testament is a one-off design, by Sydney's Mark Spence from the renowned Spence Pearson Architects, in a small, rather exclusive enclave, neighbouring part of the Noosa National Park.
A striking faÃ§ade using a raw palette of materials and louvres arouses expectations. Open the door and the reason is obvious: the residence eschews unsurpassed contemporary style. It is hallway heaven with polished timber floors, extensive use of glass, and variable lofty ceiling heights to create a bold light-filled space which flows seamlessly to outdoors.
On three sides, areas of grass give way to tropical gardens, a fish pond can be seen from so many angles within the home, and the largest water feature is of course the 10m long saltwater pool. The outdoor room with spotted gum beams and motorised screens is north-facing, plus there's a covered pergola for the barbeque and ample room poolside for sun lounges.
The alfresco, dining and living areas are over-generous, all-seasons and all-moods entertainment zones, while the new kitchen with a long Caesar stone bench top and Gaggenau appliances, is the perfect complement.
Three master-sized bedroom retreats each have a bath in the commodious white Carrera marble bathroom, plus enough wardrobe space to suit any fashionista. The upstairs king suite has its own private terrace and looks over a leafy space; and there's an office for the 'unretiring'. The downstairs suite has a private terrace and access to the pool.
An urban sanctuary in a secluded park-like setting with myriad walking and cycle tracks, guest parking in the cul-de-sac and it's so close to Noosa's main beach, Hastings Street's boutiques and restaurants, a championship golf course and supermarkets. The nearby recreational centre has a 25m solar-heated pool, gymnasium and tennis courts.
