Bask in the pleasure of knowing life on Bryan doesn't get any better than a large beach house, just a 5-minute walk to the best of everything Sunshine Beach has to offer. The glistening white sand, surf breaks amongst the white water, a new-look surf lifesaving club and nearby vibrant village all add to the appeal of this fantastic family home.
Designed and built by an engineer in the early 80's and named Piccabeen after a local palm, this cool beauty with great bones and never-to-be-built out filtered ocean views, has been loved by the same couple for 25 years and now equally by their extended families. Not surprisingly, there is ample room for everyone, well let's say up to 15.
To the left of the front entrance is a generously sized bedroom suite with polished concrete flooring, which opens out to a terrace and sub-tropical gardens where lizards and koalas often call home. To the right are two bedrooms. One opens out to a deck and once again a green backdrop.
Upstairs, the owners have resisted changing the look of the generous, tiled living space with its wood-burning fireplace. That's understandable given there are higher-than-high cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, a bag-wash rendered wall, banks of louvres to catch prevailing breezes and on the main wall of the open-plan dining and lounge spaces is rich honey-hued Kauri. The timber features continue in the kitchen, walk-in pantry and benchtops, which are complemented by stainless steel and Baumatic appliances.
A big balcony on the leafy north-westerly side is ideal for barbeque cooking, while an invaluable space for alfresco dining is the long balcony on the north-eastern side with those magical ocean glimpses over the green canopy and lush gardens below. A similar outlook is achieved from the balcony off the master suite and excelled when sitting in the spa bath listening to the sound of the surf whilst admiring the glowing beacon-like golden moon as it seemingly disappears into the Coral Sea.
There's an additional bedroom, family bathroom and laundry on this level.
"What's not to love about living in one of Australia's best beach locations," enthuse Tom Offermann Real Estate agents Eliza Coppin and Cameron Urquhart. "Enjoy the amenable sub-tropical climate, the Sunshine Beach village with its eclectic meld of places to shop, eat, drink and arguably the best coffee on the coast also the proximity to Noosa Heads, Hastings Street and the Noosa National Park. There's no denying Sunshine Beach is hot property, achieving ever-increasing record prices and amazing investment opportunities. It really is holiday heaven."
