The views of the Noosa coastline are just one of the secrets revealed by this recently renovated character cottage.
Tucked off Regencey Road, one of Doonan's signature streets this solid brick home has been the nest of one of our most awarded local architects and his family. Set along the ridgeline to maximize the outlook, the home has pitched and raked ceilings with exposed timber beams. The kitchen is wrapped in hand crafted timber slabs, has a beautiful commercial free standing cooker and a pantry that whispers of a Queensland farmhouse. It even comes complete with racks ideal for curing the pumpkins and other bounty you harvest from the veggie gardens. The dining room is cleverly inserted into and open lightbox with transparent walls and beautiful tropical shutters.
The timber floors have a beautiful luster and warmth, and the living area is ideal for lounging with a log fire generous enough to warm the whole house. The timber decks and outdoor entertaining area spill off these areas with beautiful coastal views. If you want a more rural feel there is another deck overlooking the gardens.
The master bedroom has its own ensuite and view of the distant coastline. The additional bedroom has generous storage whilst the other is currently serving as an office. The crisp white bathrooms are a lovely contrast to the earthen exposed brickwork which has the added advantage of keeping out the summer heat.
The little pool sits tucked away for privacy and is overlooked by an authentic Aussie lean to, great for a workshop. The gardens have been designed to be in harmony with the natural surrounds whilst keeping a careful eye on being water wise and low maintenance even though the 17,000 gallons of rain water storage ensure you never go thirsty. If you are looking to escape the madness of city living or if you just want to live in the best place in the world and grow your own food, harvest your own water and live a little more sustainably then you should come and see what creativity and design can produce.
