Living in and loving a luxe coastal abode on the waterfront in one of Noosa's most coveted upmarket enclaves is entirely possible. Just ask the neighbours who were drawn to Hideaway Island because of the privacy, proximity to Hastings Street, huge central park, a strong investment future and above all being in a unique aquatic playground.
Open the big bold front doors and be forgiven for thinking you've checked into a luxury retreat. Engage with the structural simplicity which is based on architectural form and respect for the idyllic sub-tropical climate; admire the chandelier; note the brightness of the high spaces, white porcelain tiles and pops of colour; and look beyond to the living artwork of a wide river frontage fringed by Pandanus, palms and frangipanis with a nature reserve backdrop.
The L-shaped prodigious living and dining spaces seamlessly bring the indoors out to the large terraces, where there is sufficient space for entertaining large families and friends. The kitchen with blue/grey granite benchtops and Euro appliances is the full complement.
In addition, the ground floor has a study and a master suite with a spa and walk-in robe which opens out to the front courtyard.
Upstairs are two large bedrooms which share a family bathroom. There's also a very romantic-looking grand master suite with a balcony looking over the garden and across the waterway where there's always action aplenty.
Another magnet to the good life alfresco, adjacent to the terrace is the pool and the water frontage with your own white-sand beach, a jetty for tying up the kayaks, a big pontoon for 'launching' the tinnie and cruiser, checking the crab pots, casting a fishing line, or just enjoying a sundowner watching pelicans glide by or boaties heading to the upper reaches of the Noosa River.
"A warm amenable climate and a town brimming with natural assets turns holiday-makers into property buyers," explains Tom Offermann, "This is something I have experienced for over 30 years, and it is not going to stop. Many of these buyers will just not compromise on having an exclusive Noosa Heads' 4567 postcode.
"Sundrenched especially in winter, it affords the convenience of living in the hub with everything wonderful to eat, see and do, safe in the knowledge their investment is underpinned by a never-ending pool of future buyers also wanting the same.
