Trophy home on country estate
WHAT a jaw-dropping undeniably incomparable setting. Yes, first impressions do count.
The security gates swing open to reveal a substantial estate which spells luxury, an enviable lifestyle and privacy on 20.2 hectares, in the perfect location just 20 minutes from Noosa's Main Beach.
When Stephen Kidd's signature is on the design drawings there's no doubting the integrity of the design. In this case they're sublimely in tune with the landscape including green spaces beyond the boundaries, the opportunity for lake-like water features, the idyllic sub-tropical climate and northerly aspect.
Carefully considered elements from every angle were bird's eye views of the Verrierdale forest, the permanent running creek and ultimately the pastures and spring-fed dams becoming a magnet for abundant fauna.
The residence balances earthiness and weightlessness by juxtaposing a gregarious personality and homely over-generous spaces. Elegance has been re-imagined using a subtle modern aesthetic, there are soaring ceilings, an oasis of calm pervades throughout and there's serious fluidity between inside and out.
There are several living spaces with fire-places, six bedrooms include a self-contained guest wing on one end of the residence and a five-star master suite with a spa on the deck, on the other.
The vast kitchen with a huge cool room and approximately eight metre-long marble bench, has been professionally designed by a chef for entertaining pleasure. The commercial Zanussi-brand appliances include a teppanyaki plate, deep fryer and ice maker and on the alfresco massive timber sun decks beside the 30m pool, is a barbecue, pizza oven and fire pit.
First class facilities for horse owners or agistment purposes include a manège for horse training and dressage, electrified horse paddocks, feed shed, four stables, CCTV and tack room.
The estate is totally fenced, there are 4500 high quality rainforest trees which take up to 20 years to fully mature for sawn timber suitable for cabinetry and furniture, and there's direct access into the forest with dedicated riding trails to Yandina and beyond.
"The man-made, spring-fed lakes are home to black bream, turtles and eels," says Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Michelle van der Splinter, "and regular visitors include ducks, commorants, cockatoos and kangaroos.
"Close to the residence is an artist's studio and nearby is a chicken house with run and large vegetable beds. Who could ask for anything more?
"This country estate with a trophy home of the highest calibre, offers the very best elements for sea and tree changers."
