Striking and elegant design capture the imagination, scaling heights of sophistication akin to Hastings Street, mere minutes from this Noosa home’s doorstep.

The entrance begs charm, highlighted by rose-tinted glass and statement art pieces, drawing guests and owners alike in before being transfixed by the striking chapel-like structure. Eye-catching layers and moody streams of natural light give a cherished finish to a chic palette. Extraordinary walls of glass louvres and panes, an open energy-efficient Vergola roof system, and the wide bank of remote-controlled bi-fold doors add further lustre to the suspended concrete floors.

Step up to the mezzanine and grandiose main master suite with equally grand walk-in robe and bathroom, to fully appreciate the high and mighty nature of the vast U-shaped living spaces. The conduit of the residence is the dining space, and the deck beyond. The garden below is to be admired with its dazzling large pool and sun decks fringed by sub-tropical plants, complemented by awe-inspiring north-westerly panoramas across the Weyba waterways, Laguna Bay, Noosa River, Lake Macdonald, Mt Cooroy and Forty Mile Beach. Ditto from the lounge space with an open fire, which of course is a more sumptuous viewpoint for the fiery vermilion theatrics of sunset.

Some kitchens go beyond the pale and this is one. A five metre spotted gum island bench, stainless steel work surfaces, appliances for the most fastidious cook and a butler’s pantry greet home chefs with tall slatted timber feature doors, which peel away to reveal every necessity including an alkaline hydrogenated water fountain. On the other side of the ‘U’ is the casual zone where entertaining is a breeze, quite literally. Two barbecues, bar fridge and a long bench space line the wall. Seating options include relaxing al fresco at the bar.

An ample office space with two walls of glass panes will awe owners. Central to the home is a media room, opening out to the pool and sun deck surround. Two generous bedrooms have a seamless transition to the outdoors, and even the bathroom has a resort-style feel. This Noosa Heads home epitomises the essence of sub-tropical living.
