Wake to the sounds of the surf, watch dawn send shimmering rays across the neighbouring Noosa National Park and Coral Sea, grab the surfboard, kids and dog and before you realise it's toes-in-the-sand.
Sunshine Beach life does not get much better, especially when the beach house also offers so much, thanks in part to revered architect Gabriel Poole whose name is synonymous with beach culture.
The green private oasis, sited over three levels, has a pathway leading to the two garages of the freestanding 3-level home.
Ceilings are domed and lofty; honey-hued hardwood flooring with cedar accents highlight the soft white palette; banks of cedar shutters and hopper windows act as breezeways; and bi-fold doors slide away to evoke layers of natural light and colour. They also maximise the majesty of the surrounding Noosa National Park and sea views whilst inviting the outdoors in, via numerous timber decks seemingly perched in the treetops, with an open sky outlook down the valley.
The most popular deck is of course alfresco, the one off the generous living and dining space. It is full-width and spills out to the dazzling plunge pool. Edged with copper-toned tiles, it is heated and sits proudly in walled surrounds under a standout Pandanus.
The central hub of indoors is the kitchen with island bench, gas cooktop, double sink, dishwasher, and a large gas strut window opening to the deck.
The master suite with private sun deck is on the top level and has filtered ocean views south to Maroochydore. The floor plan deftly separates two garden view bedrooms, laundry, bathroom and second living room on the lower floor.
Five minutes from home via Belmore Terrace or Bryan Street is the patrolled section of Sunshine Beach, also the recently remodelled Surf Club and vibrant Sunshine Beach Village with its nationally known restaurants, cafes, and bars. Take the dogs to the leash-free section of North Sunshine Beach via the pathway through to Seaview Terrace. Access to walking trails in the Noosa National Park to secluded bays is directly across the road.
"Noosa's Sunshine Beach with its laidback lifestyle, is a premium location that will never lose popularity," comments Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Rebekah Offermann, "and properties near the beach with privacy, serenity and a timeless aesthetic, such as this inviting family beach house in the tree tops, will always be in high demand".
