Waking to the sounds of the surf as dawn sends shimmering rays over the ocean, marks the beginning of another perfect day at Sunrise Beach. Grab the boards, the kids and dog, walk from your back garden via the neighboring Burgess Creek Reserve and be on the sand and off-leash doggy beach in just 5-minutes.
Perched on the dunes, connecting the beauty of the national park with the views of the Coral Sea from the wider-than-wide naturally bleached timber deck, which runs the length of the house on the top level of the very private landholding, is outstanding.
If entertaining is your forte, plus you're looking for added family fun there's a pool with sun deck also a courtyard on the northerly side.
The coastal palette is bright white throughout the high-ceilinged, open plan dining and living spaces which have banks of glass sliders and louvers opening out to the deck and pool area. The centrally positioned and recently renovated kitchen has stone bench tops and AEG appliances including a gas hob.
Also opening out to the deck and reserve with its pockets of rainforest, groves of piccabeen palms, plethora of Australian natives, wildlife and bright coloured birds is the master bedroom, walk-in robe and a large ensuite with spa bath. There's also a second bedroom and family-size bathroom on this level.
Downstairs is a wonderful surprise. Two bedrooms share a bathroom and the very generous flexi-space which opens to a deck, could be used as a media or rumpus room, games room with snooker table or a multi-functioning office. There are stairs down to the reserve and the alternate way to the surf, which is taking the boardwalk and the underpass rather than the track. Toes-in-surf this way takes 4-minutes.
"This is a pearler of a beach house for so many reasons," enthuses Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Peter TeWhata. "The expansive stretch of Sunrise Beach is loved by fishermen (think whiting) and dogs as they have a leash-free area. Whales and dolphins are often seen from the popular Beach Chalet cafe which is about an 8-minute walk and the Noosa Aquatic Centre, Noosa Tennis Academy, Noosa Dolphins Rugby Union Club and numerous private, state and pre-schools are nearby.
"And when it comes to location, location, this casually laidback family home or holiday investment is orientated to the ocean for good reason."
