With unbeatable north-easterly views over the Noosa hinterland to the ocean, and absolute privacy, this home will be your welcoming haven after an early dip at Main Beach, a stroll through the farmers' markets, or a morning spent cheering on the kids from the sidelines.
Rustic timber doors, terracotta floor tiles, cool whitewashed stucco walls and a shady arched terrace evoke the Mediterranean feel that pervades this lovely home.
Not surprisingly, the invaluable vista from this prime stretch of Duke Road has attracted multi-million-dollar homes, so you are in good company.
The lofty outlook is breathtaking from the kitchen, which has been revitalised with new soft grey cabinetry including a long island bench, and comes with a 900mm gas cooktop, pyrolytic electric oven, Miele dishwasher and filtered water.
The same jaw-dropping view is the backdrop for the adjoining dining space and the glass-fronted breezeway (currently a reading room) that flows through to the spacious family/lounge room beyond. Here, the raked ceiling and sliding glass doors attract cool breezes in summer while the carpet and built-in wood-burning stove make it an equally attractive space to be in winter. Both dining and living areas come with built-in storage.
Half a dozen steps lead up to two mirror-image bedrooms separated by a bathroom with shower - a quirky zone that will delight kids, both young and old.
Towards the opposite end of the house lies the third bedroom, a generous size with stunning views, and the main bathroom with shower over bathtub.
Beyond lies the very spacious and light-filled master retreat with pitched ceiling, the same expansive views, and glass doors opening out to the patio. The bright and beautiful new ensuite features Italian stone tiles, large glass shower, and double vanity with solid White Gum timber bench top.
A study/office with built-in storage can also be accessed via the 2-car garage. Also attached to the garage is a terrific light-filled studio which could easily be used as a 5th bedroom.
The rear tiled terrace flows out to a timber deck, offering a whole other platform among the treetops for family barbecues, lazy lunches and sophisticated soires beneath the stars.
From here, the lawn rolls gently down past mature mango, avocado and lychee trees to your own lily-covered dam and a splendid patch of native eucalypt rainforest. The northerly aspect offers tremendous scope for the avid gardener.
Fully screened and air-conditioned, the home has all new plumbing, including a brand-new Biocycle system and energy-saving LED lights throughout.
It's peaceful here. It's private. And it's perfect for someone's family. It may be perfect for you.
