This iconic multi award-winning Sunshine Coast waterfront home is akin to a resort-like oasis, complete with its own private beach.

The home was constructed by local owner-builder Jon Mees of Jon Mees Homes, who worked closely with the building design team from Christopher Design and interior designer Mark Gacesa of Ultraspace. “Our brief was to design a home that would feel like we were on holiday every day, incorporating the elements of water, stone and timber,” Mees said of the Pelican Waters mansion. Created for a family that loves to entertain, the lighting and finishes add to an impressive atmosphere as do the shared living spaces which have contributed to the many accolades this home has received since its completion in 2013.

Epitomising the finest in palatial resort-style living is this iconic multi-award winning Queensland property, thi luxury waterfront getaway in an aquatic paradise was awarded the 2013 HIA Sunshine Coast Home of the Year. Designed around an expansive 1180 square metre canal block with 67 metre water frontage, the Balinese aesthetic of exposed natural timber and stone complements a relaxed retreat vibe. A fire pit, copper gas flares and custom lighting add warmth to a home which offers glorious water views from almost every room, blending the external environment to the luxe interior.

Entry is via a boardwalk, stepping stones and a leaf-shaped pavilion toward a private beach, with a series of paths and bridges over a pool and ponds a consistent feature of the spacious double-storey layout. Meticulous attention to detail is evident in the rich finishes extending across the sleek Corian and timber kitchen, theatre, executive office, and gymnasium. An impressive master suite is apartment-like in its offering of a kitchenette, dressing room, ensuite and balcony. As one of six large bedrooms, including lower level guest accommodation, there’s ample room for when visitors wish to extend their stay. Thoughtful architecture and quality design extend across a landscape consisting of a 12-person spa, daybed and garden islands, a bar with beer on tap, teppanyaki cooking and dining area, terrace, outdoor lounge and a 14 metre pontoon with ocean access.

An outstanding location, a private man-made beach, an idyllic landscape of swimming pools, ponds, island garden, a bar and terrace, a kitchen with scullery, a timber veneer cabinetry, a home theatre, an office with a separate gymnasium are a few exceptional features of the property.
