This charming, feature-packed property offers a rare combination of dual living and a sustainable lifestyle within close proximity to Noosa. It would ideally suit large or extended families, people looking to make an income, and anyone seeking peace and privacy with the possibility of living off-grid.
Set on 4.94 acres, the main house is a Garth Chapman highset Queenslander, where traditional features such as wide verandas, ornate fretwork and timber floors blend easily with modern comforts like air-conditioning and a bright, contemporary kitchen. Upstairs is an open plan living area, bathroom and four bedrooms, including a generous master suite with walk-in robe and ensuite complete with spa.
Downstairs is another bathroom and large storeroom, plus several more rooms that could be used for various purposes, such as a home gym, art studio, teen hangout, rumpus, games room, sewing room, study or office. Stepping outdoors, you can entertain family and friends on the spacious covered poolside deck, while the kids burn off energy in the resort-style pool and waterslide.
A separate, fully self-contained cabin featuring a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge is perfect as a granny flat, or rent it out and make an income. The stunning grounds include lush lawns studded with shady trees, meandering creeks and two waterfalls.
This property's highlight is its design for semi-independent living after natural disasters, including extensive cyclone preparations on the house, which also make it perfect for sustainable living. Just some of a long list of features include a new 16KVA diesel generator hard-wired to the house, 96,000L of rainwater storage, two dams, three bores, two x 2-acre fenced paddocks with electric fences, three stock shelters and 7.9kw of solar panels. There are also two massive powered sheds (5-bay and 4-bay), an orchard and a chicken run.
This unique property is just an 8-minute drive to Boreen Point where you can enjoy water sports like kayaking, SUPing, fishing and sailing on Lake Cootharaba and the Noosa River system. Just a 20-minute drive takes you to Tewantin, or you can be on the beach or dining at Noosa Heads in only 30.
For anyone seeking plenty of space, fresh air and a tranquil, sustainable lifestyle without sacrificing the convenience of being so close to Noosa, you won't go past this property. Organise your inspection without delay.
