Understated elegance in Noosa
YEARNING for the good life in a substantial home with a lake on your doorstep? Well, this is a keeper.
It started with a footprint of 1463sq m, a level blank canvas to play with and copious work-shopped ideas for a contemporary retreat.
It turned into a dream home-build where informality and spontaneity rule for the coming and going of friends with family members having specific spaces.
The well-grounded fuss-free garden and pool ideally face north-east. Open plan living cleverly invites the outdoors in and also lends itself perfectly to optimum entertaining options.
Making a bold entrance statement is an imposing glass and aluminium door which opens to contemporary urban-style, high-ceilinged spaces where generosity is key, form meets function and flooring throughout is bamboo.
The left wing sports three large bedrooms, a spacious bathroom and a fabulous rumpus room with projector and speakers which would delight any child or teenager.
On the right wing, the lavish master bedroom boasts an ensuite and a walk-in robe to placate even the most serious shoe collector.
The guest bedroom has doors out to a courtyard and there's a separate media room located just off the main living area.
Entertaining radiates from the heart of the house. There is a classy, elongated kitchen with Caesar-stone bench tops, mirrored splash backs, top-of-the-range appliances, abundant storage and an adjacent butler's pantry.
Unlock the high sliders and extend the dining and living areas to an all-weather alfresco entertaining area to take full advantage of our idyllic sub-tropical climate. Cool off in the 12m saltwater pool or have quality family time on the expansive lawn.
"Everything about this near-new house is impressive," comments Richard Locke of Tom Offermann Real Estate.
"The owners are a master electrician and a home stylist so it's no surprise that the house is beautifully presented and boasts numerous smart home elements.
"There's CCTV, keyless entry, an alarm system and every room networked back to the hub.
"Included is a Samsung 18kw, three-phase ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning system, internal and external speakers, front and back garden lighting and irrigation.
"And there's more ... every man's dream shed with power, a 4m side access with room for a boat or caravan leading onto the rear garden, a 7m x 6m garage with separate storeroom and off-street parking for up to eight cars.
"It's also about location, location, location - Noosa Retreat is very exclusive and sought-after by those looking for premium residences close to excellent schools, Noosa Hospital and the Noosa Civic Shopping Centre. Hastings Street and Noosa's Main Beach are just a short drive away."
