Wake up to the mellifluous sound of waves crashing onshore, check surf breaks from the roof top terrace, grab your board and be toes-in-the-sand on Sunshine Beach in three minutes.
There is simply nothing like it especially when home happens to be a spectacular, much coveted beachside indulgence which defines the streetscape. Yes, it is where dreams are made.
Easy to see why. At the end of a quiet leafy cul-de-sac, a rich earthy hued masterpiece, verdant green hedge, fox tail palms and a massive glass door contribute to a bold entrance statement.
Step inside and sigh. If you think you have walked onto a Hollywood movie set, you could be right, especially when this pinnacle of design comes with everything that opens and shuts. You can almost reach for the stars, 6-stars in fact, when fully automated industrial-designed sectional glass walls on two sides of the vast living spaces, seemingly disappear into oblivion. They divulge a seamless focus of the alfresco terrace as well as an introspective eye to the glittering pool, with its automated designer water features and themed colours.
Living and loving life comes with many options, especially for serious entertainers. The more central lounge zone near the pool is for multi-media aficionados. Two parallel island-style bars with limestone tops and numerous fridges are next to a dining space also another lounge, albeit a more casually appointed space. This opens harmoniously out to a massive north-easterly terrace with eye-catching L-shaped seating.
Commensurate with the over-generosity of space and first-class quality is the kitchen. Exceptional features include a huge window with gas struts opening out on the eastside, integrated Miele appliances and a Liebherr fridge/freezer, a one-off design rubbish chute and Corella stone island bench top.
Barbeques more your speed? There are ceiling mounted speakers plus skylights over the casual dining area on the pool terrace, with its fully integrated barbeque/wok burners.
Looking for more? The king-of-kings master suite, which has the illusion of floating on the pool, has a pull-down television, surround sound and privacy bi-folds, creating a haven for relaxation. The walk-in robe was designed for a fashionista, and the ensuite is perfection with Boyd stone basins, Paco Jaason waterfall spouts, limestone vanities plus a drenching rose in the huge walk-in shower.
Take the lift or the stairs and discover two queen-size bedrooms and a sumptuous bathroom with solid brass vanity basin and huge oval-shaped Boyd stone bath with ceiling mounted waterspout. The space currently used as a gymnasium has DA approved plans for a further two bedrooms.
The tour de force continues on the roof top where Coral Sea and white-water waves shoreside are panoramic, and sundowners are just a prequel to dinner under the stars.
The emotional impact of varying spaces, volumes, and mood are intrinsic to passive sustainability, yet court appealing contrasts between textures and the materials palette, which is natural, down to earth, consistent, and totally chic.
"Enjoy the anonymity of the location so close to the surf or doggy beach," effuses Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Nic Hunter, "and it's just 5-minutes to Sunshine Beach village where the local cafe society preserve the 'barefoot if you like' attitude."
