Opulence, luxury and serenity collide at Cloud Ridge, perched on Cooroy Mountain, where views are glorious and space is abundant. The home design is outstanding, the build is of the highest quality and the location is simply stunning.

Awarded Australia’s House of the Year in 2010 it is arguably one of the best houses in the country. The only Sunshine Coast home to win the coveted title, decadence with restraint is on show, with the property accorded a higher rating than a rival house in the same competition that had a build cost of $20 million.

The location is idyllic, with awe inspiring views, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. The home features six bedrooms, four of which are ensuited. Beams of natural wood feature throughout the home, bringing the outside in and honouring the glorious natural setting. Wake up above the clouds and watch the world unfold below you. To the north and west are mountains and valleys and to the east is the sparkling Pacific Ocean. To the south lies urbane Brisbane, which is far enough away for the light pollution not to affect the starlit night.

This 40 acre property offers absolute privacy, peace and tranquillity, with forest, dams and lush grass paddocks, million year old rocks, thousand year old rainforest, and complete absence of traffic noise. The only disturbance to the peace is from the serenade of the 150 species of birds in the valley below that is a background noise in the soothing ocean breezes.

The home has multiple outdoor entertaining area options to enjoy the best of the Noosa and Sunshine Coast climate. The curved wet edge pool invites you to dive in and gaze at the ocean while swimming in the clouds.

The property also includes a separate four bed, three bath residence on title for hobbies, guest overflow, rental, or staff accommodation.
