Grab the towels, surfboard, dog and race the kids to the beach where everyone's a winner when you live two minutes from the sand.
If the weather is inclement, which is rare in this idyllic sub-tropical paradise, life doesn't get any better than staying at home, which was designed by the owners in conjunction with Stephen Kidd and building company Winter & Co, to meticulously high standards as large-family-friendly with varying-sized zones and living spaces indoors and out, to suit moods, ages and of course adults.
All becomes very clear at the pavilion-style entry with terraces either side. The bold double statement doors open to reveal Blackbutt timber floors, soaring ceilings, classy custom-built cabinetry, two light-filled magnanimous living spaces, a dining zone and kitchen for even the most fastidious, with Caesar-stone benchtops and Miele appliances including a gas hob.
Indoors connects seamlessly via glass sliders to the outdoors where the lawn is lush, the garden has a rain water tank and sub-tropical plantings, however it's the sun terrace and pool which are the star attractions, or for the entertainer it could be the complete outdoor kitchen with built-in furniture and automatic awning.
The custom-built free-standing office could also be an artist's studio.
Upstairs is the domain of master bedrooms. Yes, the four are all very large, each has a balcony, three share a big bathroom and the main master suite has a generous ensuite.
Complementing upstairs is an extremely well thought-out kid's domain on the lower ground floor. Table tennis, television, computer games, bunks for four and a bathroom seem like a teens-only den come true.
"It's all about location, location with this casually sophisticated, yet laidback imposing family residence or holiday home," comments Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Nic Hunter. "It's 200m to the boardwalk & beach, mins walk to the surf club and Sunshine Beach village with its vibrant mix of cafes and bars, plus Sunshine Beach is recognised as one of Queensland's most valuable suburbs".
