Forget everything you thought you knew about paradise.
The height of decadence is an unrivalled architectural work of art and a visually arresting villa residence with ocean views, which redefines the limits of an effortless idyllic lifestyle in Sunshine Beach.
The clever use of building materials such as metal slats and a water-wall create an eye-catching facade on the tree-lined corner block and entry to the aptly named Coast.
Indoors, suspended concrete slabs and the extensive areas of natural limestone floor and bathroom tiles also blackbutt timber are synonymous of everything high-end, also complement all design aspects as well as the contemporary beach palette.
The immense open-plan upper level is a total showstopper embracing a relaxed coastal vibe, white, grey, natural, tan and black hues, sumptuous sofas, oversized rugs, eye-catching limited edition prints by Akila Berjaoui and auto-controlled Velux skylights, above the timber dining room table.
Doors seemingly disappear for a seamless connection to a north facing covered alfresco terrace with metal louvres and extended or alternate entertaining options.
Needless to say, the kitchen with italiana stone, Calacatta marble, a full suite of Gaggenau appliances, integrated double Liebherr fridge/freezer, Vintec wine fridge and every other conceivable necessity, is stupendous.
Off the living area is another, yes another alfresco space with a green backdrop. It's the perfect spot for morning coffee and a chorus of birdsong as it's also accessible from the mega master suite with its walk-in robe destined to be adored by every fashionista.
Looking for another irresistible space, this time with ocean views, sublime sunrises or sundowners accompanied by the sound of the surf and salty breezes? It's the travertine-tiled rooftop. Who could ask for anything more?
On the entry level, a bedroom or maybe media room has a covered sunroom/terrace on two sides, an underwater window of the suspended pool and several steps to north-facing poolside sun deck. There are two main-size additional bedrooms. One has an adjacent family-size bathroom and the other an ensuite, also a terrace with native bird-attracting plants as a backdrop. On the south side is an elevator and doors leading to expansive private courtyards/breezeways which can be used as a kid's play area or how about an outdoor cinema.
"The ultra-chic residence is in the heart of Sunshine Beach," says Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Rebekah Offermann. "Imagine waking up and looking out through the terrace to the trees, hearing the sound of the surf and knowing it's just two blocks to Duke Street, the vibrant village and a further block to the patrolled beach."
