An exquisite renovation completed in August 2018 has given this home a sexy spring in its step.
Located in prestigious Lone Hand Lane, in Noosa's 'Golden Triangle', the site affords every room the coveted northerly aspect, with views over the still waters of your own 3-acre lake to the focal point, Mount Cooroy.
Inspired by this Zen-like scene, architect John Mainwaring's design melds colonial, modern and oriental aspects to create a unique structure that maximises space, natural light, winter sun and summer shade.
Running almost 45 metres along the lakeshore, the house recalls the longhouses of Asian cultures. Centre stage is the open-plan kitchen, living, dining and lounge section offering superb vistas and opening out to the deep covered verandah that extends the full length of the house.
Polished hardwood floors, lots of glass and high ceilings contribute to the subtropical feel. On cooler nights, dim the lights and settle in by the Swedish built-in wood burner.
The kitchen is strategically positioned at the hub of the space, facing a large servery window that opens to the deck. A fresh new look in 2018 includes white Quantum quartz benchtops, new 2-pac cabinetry and new Bosch appliances. There's a walk-in pantry and filtered water to sink and fridge.
Cascading down from the verandah, layered decks lead to the 14-metre saltwater pool and, just below, jutting out over the lake, a magical wooden jetty that comfortably seats eight. Imagine lazy brunches, over-water dinner parties, sundowners with friends. Or simply a place to gather your thoughts, clear your mind or refine your photography skills (the lake is teeming with birds).
Either side of the living space, long hallways lit by footlights lure the eye, with views framed left and right along the way.
Eastwards lies the media room, guest quarters and newly renovated bathroom with shower. The study has its own outdoor sitting areawith NBN access, this could be your new 'Head Office'.
Westwards lies the children's wing, with two generous bedrooms and two-way bathroom with shower and a luxurious freestanding bath, renovated in 2018.
Upstairs is dedicated to the master suite, with a small deck offering lofty views over the lake. The ensuite has, new Italgraniti tiles, new 2-pac cabinetry and a generous glass shower.
Outside, mature trees punctuate the irrigated gardens leading down to the lake's edge and along the perimeter. Every plant has been carefully selected to offer visual appeal, flowers or scent.
The 5m-deep lake contains about 20 million litres and is engineered to handle any overflow. A windmill pumps supplementary water to the lake from a nearby creek-fed pond.
Within the 20 acre property there are approx. 15 horse-friendly acres and a 2.5bay shed with tack room. This property is a horse-lover's heaven just 5 minutes from Eumundi and Cooroy and about 20 minutes from Noosa. With the two car garage and the shed, there are 6 undercover car spaces.
A terrific place to raise children, a glorious hideaway to entertain friends, a work-from-home dream come true or just your own slice of the planet to commune with nature and contemplate life.
