Imagine a glamorous French provincial-style residence that epitomises luxury living on the Riviera. Except the location is on the waterfront of prestigious Noosa Waters, just 10 minutes to Noosa's Main Beach.
There's no doubting the classy street appeal, the taller-than-tall timber doors and a decadent front entrance with high ceilings, sumptuous rugs and artefacts, which morphs into a long wide hallway, reminiscent of an art gallery.
Look beyond to the extensive living and dining spaces. The lines are blurred in a seamless fashion thanks to glass sliders, to the outdoor terrace which, with kitchen facilities and integrated barbeque, is more like an outdoor room.
Of course, there's more. Claiming the spotlight is understandably the northerly orientated waterfrontage with grass verge, where clear waters gently lap the revetment wall also the long L-shaped jetty with ramp. Boating enthusiasts have access to the Noosa River via a private residents-only lock and weir system.
Adding another dimension to the residence is the west 'wing'. A substantial master suite with every accoutrement including walk-in robes also has glass sliders to the terrace as well as those wonderful views across the wide waterway. Two additional bedrooms are queen-sized and have ensuites.
A very large media room (currently used as an office) opens out to the pool and spa. Because it's cossetted within the building design and has solar heating, it's naturally a year-round sun-worshipper's delight.
Those with a penchant for entertaining will find the kitchen with its granite bench tops, has all the latest high-end bells and whistles.
Take the glass-walled lift or the staircase with timber treads to the piece de resistance, a serious oasis of calm and opulence. The immense space, a nod to the French Provincial style has a grand bedroom, marble bathroom with spa bath, a custom-designed dressing room, sitting room plus a balcony suitable for morning yoga or a sunset cocktail, framing the north-side of the 'retreat'. And let's not forget the water views from east to west and across to Masthead Quay.
"While other markets around the country are struggling in the face of tightened lending criteria and cooling investor appetite, Noosa continues to deliver steady, sustainable growth," comments Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Eric Seetoo. "Noosa Waters is recognised as one of Australia's premier housing precincts for its high calibre of design, also great sense of community. Pride of ownership is evident in the manicured gardens and parks and there's a prevailing overtone of family safety and security".
