Live the good life in this work of beauty on the Coast

PRIVATE and stylish ... a retreat, a resort, a celebrity playground or perhaps, just a fabulous family home.

Sanaa is a single-level, palazzo-style residence that sits atop 30 idyllic acres in Noosa hinterland's prestigious golden triangle. It boasts a dazzling 20-metre infinity pool with travertine pool deck to rival that of America's famous Tramways Pool House in Palm Springs.

The visionary owner-builders bought this special property four years ago and relocated its historic two-bedroom cottage down the hill to create a plateau for the prestigious home they named Sanaa which is Swahili for 'work of beauty'.

The result is a gem of under-stated glamour and luxury from the porte cochere and marbled foyer to the sleek caesarstone kitchen and butler's kitchen and beautiful spotted gum floors.

A wonderful sense of space and calm pervades the open plan interiors that transition from the über-cool living/dining rooms to the spectacular natural beauty and poolside entertaining zones outside.

The private spaces are discreetly tucked away with the master bedroom opening on to a private terrace and landscaped water garden with goldfish swimming lazily under the mini waterfalls. Beyond lies the travertine pool terrace and a fabulous cabana.

This wonderful party venue and chill out zone runs alongside the amazing - and automatically self-cleaning - azure pool and spa bench.

At pool end, book-ended by two towering gums, stands majestic Mount Cooroy in all its jaw-dropping glory. Opposite the cabana is an outdoor lounge area with custom-built stone chimney and fireplace and, nearby, a Balinese doorway that leads down a forest path to a glorious lily-strewn lake.

The historic cottage - once the Wahpunga State School - has been spruced up to include french doors and windows, veranda and VJ walls, and an updated kitchen and bathroom. It would make an ideal guest or caretaker cottage or rental as it has its own private paddock with fire pit and is out of sight and mind from the main action.


Peace, privacy, prestige and just minutes from Noosa, Cooroy and Eumundi, and only 30 minutes from the Sunshine Coast Airport.
