Stellar Style and Tranquility, Evocative of Summers at Sunrise Beach
Looking for a flawless showstopper with uber-class, everything that opens and shuts, even reaches for the stars, 6-stars in fact? Think a dedicated collector's dream space equivalent to a showroom, also panoramic Coral Sea views and white-tipped waves onshore. There really is nothing like it.
Admire the mature grass trees along the entry way; step into a dynamic residence reminiscent of a gallery. Each over-generous, unstructured zone has a super-chic overlay, and there is an almost invisible line between indoors and out.
From the deck on the eastern side, off the casual dining and living areas, and stretching the entire width of the residence to the left with a mainly northerly orientation, are eagle-eye views from Lions Head along the beaches from Sunshine to Point Arkwright. It's not unusual to see the ocean beyond dotted with migrating whales, hang gliders and cruise ships from the dazzling sun-drenched pool. It takes centre stage on the marble tiled terrace, has a custom-built banquette, a feature-brick wall, and the ceiling is punctuated with western red cedar slats. Alfresco entertaining reaches a new high.
Oversize and supreme quality are at play everywhere, and the lounge with terrace on the western side, panorama gas fireplace, wired-in frameless television and custom cabinetry, is no exemption.
Similarly, the kitchen designed with a chef in mind. The stone-topped island bench has a purpose-built breakfast bar timber-look 'extension', the splashback is a single slab of marble, appliances are top-of-the range SMEG, the Liebherr fridge/freezer is integrated, and the butler's pantry has all the bells and whistles.
Also on this massive main level is a king guest bedroom with ensuite. It opens out to a terrace as does the nearby fully kitted out laundry. And let's not forget the office which has been designed for two busy executives and has a door to a fireman's pole for easy access to the basement's treasure trove.
But first, take the marble stairs where interiors exemplify a sense of calm and blissful dreams are guaranteed. In the south wing the king bedroom has an ensuite with an oval bath, a walk-though robe, balcony with stacker glass doors and expansive views along the coastal beaches and hinterland. Another king bedroom has an ensuite and balcony, this time with views over the Coral Sea.
The piece de resistance de bathrooms however is the grand master suite. Wake to a mellifluous chorus of birdsong, and from the bed, balcony, or bathtub, watch the first orange-hued rays of sunrise glisten over the ocean from Lions Head to what seems like forever. Past the ensuite, a walk-in robe, dressing room and make-up bar is more like a fashionista's heaven.
Let's not forget the basement or some might say it is about saving the best until last. In the chill-out entertainment zone there's a cinema, pool table and a serious bar, whilst around the corner could be a gym but it's currently a "toy chest", more a small showroom, a collector's tour de force with memorabilia, vintage motorbikes and classic cars.
"This hot property has an enticing price tag and is an absolute tribute to its Sunrise Beach location," comments Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Peter TeWhata. "It was specially designed by renowned Bock Architects. It has a tree-house outlook, which will never be built out and is a short walk to the surf, dog-friendly beach and Noosa National Park, or take a bike ride along meandering streets which run parallel to the coastal contours."
