Panoramic views, luxury fittings and a chef's own kitchen. You want more? Ok, we'll throw in 10 acres, 3 cows, 2 sheds and 1 bore.
Located at the end of a pleasant, country cul-de-sac, just 3 minutes to bustling Cooroy, this elegant home will delight introverts and extroverts alike. Retreat from the world to your own private and peaceful sanctuary, or fling open the doors, cook up a storm and invite 50 friends around.
Quality is evident from the moment you step through the over sized New Guinea rosewood door, past the hand crafted wall of locally sourced sandstone, onto the warm Queensland tallowwood floors that extend through the house.
A bank of bifold glass doors along the north-facing rear of the home slide back to frame an incredibly wide ranging, long view over the hinterland, punctuated by Mt Cooroy, Mt Tinbeerwah and the Noosa North Shore sandblow. Wrapping the house on 3 sides is a deep timber deck, unencumbered by handrails. Imagine a summer soiree here, with guests relaxing on the wide steps and spilling down onto the manicured flat lawn edged with blood red Gallipoli' roses.
On the warmest of days, the raked ceiling and highset louvres draw the gentlest of breezes into the open plan lounge and dining areas, while on chilly evenings a seat by the huge sandstone fireplace will be in hot demand. There's also an adjoining media room.
Foodies, home cooks and would-be master chefs will be drooling at the highly functional kitchen, designed to exacting standards by the chef-owner. Features include a 6 burner gas cooktop, 900mm electric oven, SMEG steam oven, water outlet at the hob, commercial grade quiet ducted rangehood, integrated dishwasher, and both stainless steel and Caesarstone benchtops. Minimalist white cabinetry is offset by a splashback of imported Italian tiles, and gas strut windows with pull down screens offer views and cross breezes. A huge butler's pantry has Caesarstone marble benchtops, 2 sinks, a full size fridge,and masses of shelving.
Whether it's fine dining or takeaway pizza, the custom designed, 3 metre long copper dining table with blackwood legs is a conversation starter and will be the focal point of many a get together.
The 2 queen sized guest bedrooms, each with built-in robes, are located east of the living zone, with access to the verandah. An exquisite bathroom is tiled in crisp white and shades of grey, with polished stone mosaic. The beautiful wet area shower is just upstaged by the egg shaped bathtub, with floorstanding tapware, positioned to showcase Mt Cooroy through a large picture window. A separate elegant powder room features a wall of handcrafted mosaic tiles in muted tones.
At the opposite end of the living zone, a large combined bathroom laundry with large shower, stone benchtop, Belfast sink and beautiful big tiles has convenient access to the garden. A separate powder room, or shaving room, also comes with a shower and toilet.
Beyond lies the sumptuous master retreat, oriented to greet the day and maximise the striking mountain view through frameless corner windows and sliding doors to the deck. The scale of the ensuite is nothing short of impressive, magnified by floor-to-ceiling textured tiles, large floor tiles and lots of glass. There's a separate toilet, choice of handheld or rain shower, and with two separate bamboo vanities your personal space is guaranteed. The generous walk-in robe is fitted with Swedish Elfa shelving.
The attached 2 car garage with Polyflor flooring and great ventilation could easily be converted to 2 bedrooms or used as a gym / yoga studio. Data and TV connections are already in place. There's also a carport.
A fenced dog pound adjoins the house, giving your pooch a safe place to run around. Past the chook pen, is the lofty 6 bay shed for all the toys, and a bore with spring water on tap. This is the highest point on the property, a magic spot to sip a beer and watch the sun set over infinite green valleys and the distinctive Kenilworth Bluff. In the paddock below, 3 belted galloways quietly take care of the mowing. Same again?
