A stun­ning build com­plete with breath­tak­ing views

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS - ERLE LEVEY

BREATH­TAK­ING in de­sign, build and lo­ca­tion, you will im­me­di­ately be drawn into this ex­quis­ite home.

En­ter through the over­sized glass pivot door to this un­prece­dented home and be swept up by the beau­ti­ful panoramic vista of the east­ern coast­line over the lush Noosa hin­ter­land.

The com­bi­na­tion of an in­no­va­tive de­signer, crafted builder and a 1.12ha block of land in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion and the re­sult is a re­mark­able home.

Both the builder Dean McEwan and de­signer Ger­ard Smith are highly recog­nised in their in­di­vid­ual roles and have teamed up suc­cess­fully in the past to cre­ate award-win­ing homes.

This im­pres­sive prop­erty fol­lows in that man­ner, al­ready a fi­nal­ist in the 2018 Mas­ter Builders Sun­shine Coast Hous­ing and Con­struc­tion Awards to be an­nounced in Au­gust.

Like any good de­sign it is what you don’t see that im­presses. Un­der­stated style with qual­ity fin­ishes.

Set up from the road on the ridge that in turn looks over the Noosa hin­ter­land and coast­line, the con­tem­po­rary-de­signed house is quite reclu­sive, ac­cen­tu­ated by the black ex­te­rior matched with the grey of the wet plas­ter fin­ish to the block­work.

There are two drive­way en­trances from the road and while a three-car garage is at street level there is room for an­other 10-12 ve­hi­cles at least un­der­neath.

Step in­side the en­try foyer and be ready to be amazed at the huge open-plan liv­ing ar­eas ... and the view. Across Lake Weyba to Sunrise Beach, along Pere­gian to Coolum Beach and Mt Coolum.

About 25 m of stacked doors and windows open to the deck and in­fin­ity-edge, salt­wa­ter lap pool.

The black tim­ber cab­i­netry in the kitchen will amaze and in­spire. Again, there is a con­crete look to the Co­rian bench­tops, black tap­ware and Bosch ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing three wall ovens, an in­te­grated dish­washer and an in­duc­tion cook­top.

There is such a mas­sive space un­der the roofline that makes it great for en­ter­tain­ing, and su­per­vi­sion of the pool area.

A sleek fire­place is sus­pended from the ceil­ing in the fam­ily area that fea­tures an en­ter­tain­ing bar and cab­i­netry to match that in the kitchen. When opened, the cab­i­netry re­veals a full flat-screen tele­vi­sion. Every­thing has been thought of. The tran­si­tion from liv­ing ar­eas is seam­less.

You can be ex­cused for over­look­ing the in­te­grated door­way to the main bed­room suite.

A real re­treat with car­pet in the bed­room and con­crete tiles in the en­suite. Again, there are soar­ing ceil­ings and a built-in bed that has the float­ing ef­fect.

The walk-in dress­ing area is like a coun­try club.

While the en­suite fea­tures a gun metal black mar­ble look to the van­ity with shal­low dou­ble wash basin.

The walk-in shower comes with black rain­for­est and ad­justable shower heads and there are heated towel rails.

Every­thing opens to the pool deck. And the views.

There are re­mote-con­trolled cur­tains, like the con­cealed

blinds in the liv­ing ar­eas.

A full split-level me­dia lounge is in the north­ern wing, again with a con­cealed flatscreen tele­vi­sion and ac­cess to 500sq m of level lawn and play area.

Be­hind the kitchen is a pow­der room, while the laun­dry opens to a con­cealed dry­ing court­yard.

To left of the main en­try is a study area with in­de­pen­dent ac­cess and view of the drive­way as well as to the coast­line in the east.

It’s the level of crafts­man­ship that makes the hard things that were part of the build to look sim­ple ... the use of smoked glass, the re­veal to cre­ate a float­ing ceil­ing.

Brand new with every­thing done, the world is at your feet. Noosa is your beach, Eu­mundi your mar­ket town, the air­port is close by and Bris­bane is your front door.
