20 Minute Drive to Noosa
This outstanding Noosa Hinterland property faces the area's most dominant feature, Mount Cooroy, so close you feel as though you can touch it. The Ken Robinson designed residence is set on 12 hectares (approximately 30 acres). Panoramic views from every room provide an extensive vista including Maroochydore and Mooloolaba.
From the gated entrance the bitumen driveway framed by extended hedging follows the contour of the land to the front entrance. With an appealing vista this home was sited to capture the magic of its terrain and setting. Magnificent professionally landscaped gardens are integral to the house design acting as a fluent extension of the living space whilst incorporating the characteristics of the home.
An inviting floorplan includes a number of living and dining zones featuring blackbutt timber floors and north facing bi-fold doors that open out ensuring the interior is always connected to its surroundings. Natural light and the rolling landscape are allowed to pass through the house featuring 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 2 home offices all with framed vistas as a backdrop. Extensive use of travertine throughout the bathrooms and underfloor heating features in the master ensuite and main bathroom. Relax and embrace nature as you cool off after a warm day in the heated salt chlorinated pool with infinity edge and enjoy an outside evening meal watching the sun disappear behind the mountain ranges.
The original cleared farmland has been transformed after substantial tree planting of native and rainforest trees on the property which gives privacy and brings an abundance of wildlife to observe and enjoy, birds of many species including water birds and water dragons at the large dam and wallabies to observe at breakfast or sunset close to the house.
Other infrastructure includes a bore and 40,000 litre bore water tank with extensive irrigation around the house area. Two 50,000 litre tanks provide domestic rain water storage with a 5 micron UV sterilised drinking water system. On a lower section of the property is a 21m x 13m x 4.5m high industrial shed with 3 phase power. This shed contains the 10kw solar power system and a 6kva backup generator to the residence for sewerage, drinking water, refrigeration and other essential power. On a lower level is a fully irrigated vegetable garden, fire pit area with table and seating. The shed access road is all weather bitumen.
