Escape to the centre of paradise, 3-minutes from the Noosa River foreshore, and behold the exterior of a duplex which exudes the latest in contemporary architecture and a monochromatic aesthetic by Tim Ditchfield.
Along the tropical magnolia-fringed side path is the front entrance with its very wide timber-framed glass door. First impressions do count as you drink in the northerly aspect and realise there's obviously been no compromises with this craftsman-like new-build, only keep the pace casual and add oodles of panache, texture and muted cool luxe.
A play of scale and intimacy through varied ceiling heights add spatial interest, while the materials' palette is kept simple and consistent. The silky yet tactile polished concrete walls complement the floors of the extensive living spaces, the custom-built floating entertainment cabinetry also the galley-style kitchen, with its integrated appliances and innovative mobile white stone-topped island bench/bar.
Two walls of glass sliders seemingly disappear to reveal an idyllic alfresco ambience be fitting a weekend away all year round. So, whether entertaining under cover, soaking up rays from the sun lounges or floating around the pool, your new regime is all here. Beyond are easy-care landscaped gardens.
Abutting the staircase, a beautifully appointed wall of two-toned rich Blackbutt timber struts, adds texture and warmth while upstairs is a calming coastal vibe. The master suite has a lofty VJ-profile ceiling, balcony with metal louvre-like shade screens which open out, and a walk-through robe and glamorous ensuite. A queen-size bedroom in the north-wing has the same style balcony and shares a huge family-size bathroom with a similarly sized third bedroom.
"The premium location of Noosaville will never lose popularity," comments Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Mal Cox. "Rivers Edge really does blur the line between indoors and outdoors, and the most difficult decision you'll have to make is whether to have a dip in the pool of your brilliant new duplex or stroll along Gympie Terrace which runs parallel to the dog-friendly Noosa River foreshore and gazebo-dotted park where fishing, boating and swimming in the shallow water are just a few favourite pastimes. Some of Australia's best cafes, bars and restaurants are nearby, also ferry stops to Hastings Street as well as the popular Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club."
