If escaping this summer to the tranquillity of a very chic waterfront residence, with its own beach, and only a short walk to Hastings Street, sounds too good to be true, start packing.
From the leafy streetscape in a quiet cul-de-sac on Noosa Sound, the bold contemporary design, accented by mature Pandanus, is a standout, as is the slate feature wall, and the wide pivot bespoke glass and timber slatted front door.
Admire the evergreen frangipani garden on the right, also lofty ceilings, double height glass panes and banks of louvres. Natural light drenches indoors and casts wispy shadows over the travertine tiled floors, which seem to stretch endlessly from the hallway, to the big tease of being on the waterfront.
Take a moment to swoon over the expansive open-plan living areas boasting a sunny design-forward aesthetic, evocative of memorable times hosting family and friends indoors and out.
On the northern side, glass sliders seemingly disappear to reveal a private garden and covered terrace, the first of many entertaining options. It wraps around the living and dining spaces and abuts the glistening wet-edge pool with pool deck and copper-look waterfall wall.
Overall, the extensive back 'garden' has a dazzling panorama of the wide waterway yet appears to be perched on the 20-metre water's edge.
But look, there's more. Four timber steps to the white sand beach make it easy to 'launch' a kayak or stand-up paddleboard into the clear clean river, which is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. There is a pontoon and the jetty is perfect for sundowners, yet long enough for a power boat requiring deeper water. In addition, it is easy access to the Noosa River and the Everglades.
With an accent on effortless entertaining, an enticing kitchen is a necessity. From a butler's pantry, long island stone bench/breakfast bar and counter tops, to high-end appliances including a gas cooktop, it is all here.
In the north wing on this level, another very appealing feature is one of two king suites. The over-generous space, with walk-in robe and granite-tiled ensuite bathroom opens out to a courtyard-style garden.
There is also a media room, powder room, storage under the stairs and a drying deck is accessed from the laundry.
Upstairs the mezzanine level is akin to a family retreat with a central/media/library space. The king suite with ensuite bathroom and walk-in robe has a balcony overlooking the wide waterway and jetty; a queen-size suite with walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom has a northerly aspect; and the fourth bedroom shares the family-sized bathroom.
"For anyone seeking to cultivate a sunny state of mind in a safe, secure and stunningly beautiful oasis, this residence simply has it all, " enthuses Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Julie Bengtsson, "and the millionaire's playground is the perfect destination for high-flyers seeking an unrivalled lifestyle.
"Noosa Heads is the domain of many and on the wish-list of many more, however in one of the most exclusive streets and just 10-minutes from Hastings Street, Noosa Main Beach and the Noosa National Park, is the current hottest opportunity for a sage investor."
