Living the good life doesn't get much better than a penthouse, set sublimely in the dress circle position on Gympie Terrace, with eagle-eye views over an abundance of nature from the jetty-dotted Noosa River to meandering pathways and parkland, taking centre stage.
Step inside and be immediately entranced by the design aesthetic, albeit a cool collected nod to the Bahamas. Bright natural light invites itself in via banks of glass sliders, timber shutters and venetians, before spilling in a dappled kind of way, over bamboo flooring in the expansive living and dining spaces.
Adding a greater effect whilst achieving a strong sense of place is the harmonious connection to outdoors. The immediate focus is on the massive, totally private terrace where effortless entertaining is a breeze. It narrows as it wraps around and stretches the width of the penthouse on the northerly side. It is such a happy place for morning coffee, sun worshippers, also sundowners whilst drinking in the most magical views of the riverfront and listening to a chorus from the rainbow lorikeets.
Those with a penchant for cooking will agree the large U-shaped kitchen with light timber cabinetry, pearlized black granite benchtops, breakfast bar and premium appliances has it all.
Apart from the river views from the master suite at the end of the terrace, it has a walk-in robe and a contemporary bathroom with natural-hued porcelain tiles, walk-in shower, and a spa bath. Two queen size bedrooms share a similarly styled bathroom and separate toilet.
The immensely popular Colonial Resort Noosa has been cleverly designed with 19 apartments surrounding an enormous heated pool which has recently been refurbed with a water feature, upgraded large barbeque pavilion/entertaining area, spa, kid's wading area and sauna - all immaculately maintained by popular and effective full-time onsite managers, as they secure strong investment returns for owners.
"The location along the Noosa River's "golden mile" as it's called, really is second to none," enthuses Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Chris Miller.
"A warm amenable climate and a town brimming with natural assets turns holidaymakers into property buyers. Many will just not compromise on having an exclusive address with the hottest being north facing. Sundrenched especially in winter, it affords the convenience of living in the hub with everything wonderful to eat, see and do, yet safe in the knowledge the investment is underpinned by a never-ending pool of future buyers also wanting the same."
