Pavilion Style Home in Lush Setting and So Close to Noosa!

The journey in, along the winding driveway for privacy from the road, takes you through lush verdant sub-tropical bush with butterflies and birds, which then reveals this hidden delight.

Built in a pavilion style, the home has a resort like feel nestled beside a lagoon style pool and surrounded by beautiful bushland. Is it possible Noosa is only 15 minutes away?

The home has two distinct pavilions, raised off the ground for airflow and natural cooling in Summer, and are connected by a windowed passageway. One pavilion boasts the vast indoor and outdoor living areas, whilst the other houses the generous accommodation.

The living pavilion connects seamlessly between indoor and outdoor living, with the lagoon style pool just beyond. The proportions are generous, vast. The high ceilings add to the sense of light, air and space.

Open plan, this area has a huge kitchen with gas cooktop, electric fan forced oven and dishwasher; there’s also a large pantry, plus plenty of storage. If you’re entertaining, there’s no shortage of space for serving.

The versatile living and lounge area is, again, enormous. Louvred windows provide cross breezes along with the fans throughout the home; a large slow-combustion wood heater, reversible fans and closable ceiling vents provides a snug environment during our short Winter.

There’s access to the verandah through three large sliding glass doors which overlooks (and gives access to) the pool and the mature native forest at the front of the block.

Moving through the connection passageway into the accommodation pavilion you find the four stunning bedrooms.

The spacious master bedroom has walk-in robes, a fan and a large en-suite. The remaining three bedrooms are all large double bedrooms with fans, built-in wardrobes and are serviced by a family bathroom with bath and shower.

Walk past the linen press and the storage cupboard to the separate laundry which, in turn, gives access to a drying court with a new 5m rotary clothesline.

Outside, you’ll be spending days by the pool, but for the active gardeners, or those wanting to create a sustainable lifestyle, there’s lots going on, and plenty of space to expand. There’s mature fruit trees, a large veggie patch and a chook pen. Breakfast sorted.

Infrastructure wise there’s the 9m x 8.5m separately powered well-lit shed with benches and a lockable room, numerous small out-sheds for equipment, a compost area and property has NBN Broadband supplied for fast internet access and a 6kW Solar Panel system to reduce the electricity bills.

With this property you get the best of both worlds; partly self-sufficient resort-style living in the bush with plenty of native flora and fauna AND you’re within 15 minutes of Hastings Street and Main Beach, Noosa, the Eumundi Markets and the Hinterland generally. The nearby Sunshine Motorway gives 30-minute access to the Sunshine Coast Airport and the Bruce Highway gives 90 minute access to the delights of Brisbane
