COASTING along the sunlit lines of Hastings Street, the convertible rooftop down, a Hermes silk scarf knotted loosely about your hair… it's an elusive picture that suddenly seems possible when you enter this address.
One of the Sunshine Coast's most iconic apartments - and arguably Noosa's finest - this elegant residence is the type of place many of us aspire to … and for some, it can come true.
Blossoming across the entire garden level of an elite three-apartment building, the expanse of this prestigious property overlooks the pristine azure of its private-access, personal pool, and straight onto the world-renown beauty of Noosa Main Beach.
With direct elevator access from the secure basement car park and a myriad of security features, its exclusivity is ensured not only by its position but also by its masterful appointment.
Tom Offermann, principal of Tom Offermann Real Estate, believes it is the finest unit available in the resort town.
"It is quintessential Noosa, right in the heart of the beachfront strip," he says, describing it as an "iconic and indulgent" property.
Indeed, as Tom adds, when you open the doors into such an astounding place with such an amazing view, "you cannot help but smile."
Making its address across the whole floor, an abundance of gorgeous, natural light fills the space from either end of the apartment, while gleaming down lights above highlight elegant detailing and exquisite furnishings throughout.
Italian glass feature tiling in harmonized shades of burnished burgundy, succulent copper and a brilliantine bronze sparkle amongst oversized, creamy porcelain tiled flooring in a mosaic outlay.
Gliding across the centralized open-plan living, dining and culinary sphere, wall-to-wall lengths of slim glass doors bring the inside out, and welcome the outside in.
Facing due north, a lush lawn garden garners year-long sunshine and grows off from the large entertaining terrace, while a slight elevation courtesy of the home's intellectually driven Richard Foster design sees it settled above the beach path, securing maximum seclusion and privacy.
Stretching far forward beyond all other units across the beachfront esplanade, setting foot within its bright and light surrounds is truly akin to feeling the sand beneath your feet and the whisper-soft waves lapping at your toes.
A dip into the pool or dive into the ocean is both possible, with direct access to both from within the abode, plus a throughway to the beach from Hastings Street situated to the east.
Elevated on a split-level and overlooking the central living sphere, the spacious master suite garners a continuation of glorious beach-front views through a length of soft, white timber louvres.
Capturing sea breezes and sights to perfection, the softly carpeted sleeping space shifts into an attractive, fully-tiled walk-through-robe and main ensuite.
A rain showerhead and hand-held adorn the sumptuous shower with frameless glass screen, while twin basins amid the honey-gold timber vanity add a sleek note to the sophisticated compilation.
Miele appliances and timber-enclosed range hood top the honey timber and glossy white palette of thick stone benches and streamlined cabinetry in the premier kitchen.
Winding back toward the rear, two ensuited bedrooms (both with built-ins and one with a private balcony) open off a spacious media area and well-appointed laundry with a private balcony nook.
