A generous yet serene sculpted form, fringed by frangipani and enhanced by layers of clever timber and brise soleil features, evokes absolute privacy and mystery, yet defines the streetscape and the entry courtyard.
In the peerless, incomparable front row of Sunshine Beach, with explosive views of the Coral Sea, Sunshine Beach and beyond is architect Frank Machia's pinnacle of design excellence. The ultimate beach house is a few footsteps to toes in the dazzling white sand. Open the spectacular bespoke doors and step into a blissful dream, a design intended to nuance the site with as many interesting and unexpected spaces as possible, of varying scale and mood, angled towards the beach access.
Lavish materials such a honey-hued timber floors and treads, polished concrete, marine-ply decking, travertine, mosaic bathroom tiles and sandstone feature walls offer a palette of soothing natural tones inspired by nature.
Living and loving the good life, whether escaping or entertaining, revolves around extensive open plan living spaces with lofty ceilings and unimpeded connections to the great outdoors including ocean views from most spaces thanks to full height windows, louvres and sliding doors that magically blur the line between indoors and outdoors. Interiors are a nod to Malibu and Palm Springs with sumptuous cane, cushions and lampshades covered in beachy fabrics, russet leather and statement pendants in the main over-generous living space on level three, including the library with its balcony, which all seamlessly flow to the extravagant deck with those gull's eye views.
In a residence of this calibre expect the kitchen to be the perfect match. It is. The combination of timber with stainless steel, high sheen black tiled splashback with feature lighting, and high-end appliances with stone-topped bench tops is clever.
Another talking point is the master suite, more a retreat with walk-in robe, super-sized ensuite with double-sink vanity and drencher shower, plus floor-to-ceiling muslin curtains flowing with the ocean breezes and filtering the views. It opens out to a courtyard garden on the westerly side.
Two additional bedrooms which also open out to garden areas share a family-sized bathroom.
On the entry level is a queen suite with a huge deck hugging two sides, a custom-built timber wall 'hiding' an office, and an ensuite.
Evocative of when the hustle stops, summer begins and never ends at Sunshine, well it doesn't get much better than the living space on the ground level, especially when the sliders open to reveal a garden and your private access path to the beach. Pinch yourself, it is true. It could be you.
"Living in a stellar beach house in the front row of a privileged location with nothing but the sand and sea in front, really is the ultimate prize," remarks Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Nic Hunter.
"What a sage investment opportunity especially those who like to mix fitness with pleasure walking to Noosa Heads via Alexandria Bay in the Noosa National Park, similarly vibrant Sunshine Beach village with its nationally known restaurants, cafes and bars."
