PRAC­TI­CAL­ITY MEETS BEAUTY

SOAK UP THE SO­PHIS­TI­CA­TION OF A FRANK MACCHIA-DE­SIGNED HOME THAT EN­JOYS A FAB­U­LOUS WA­TER­FRONT PO­SI­TION

Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | HOT PROPERTY -

This prop­erty is in a class of its own and must be seen to be ap­pre­ci­ated. Strik­ing ar­chi­tec­ture, unique tex­tures and qual­ity fin­ishes com­ple­ment a pres­tige wa­ter­front ad­dress and cre­ate a spec­tac­u­lar and dis­tinc­tive Frank Macchia-de­signed home.

Ar­riv­ing from the street, vis­i­tors are greeted by a re­fined yet un­der­stated façade which im­me­di­ately gives the ex­pec­ta­tion that what lies be­hind is a su­perbly pol­ished res­i­dence.

From the en­trance, you will be in awe as each turn re­veals com­plex ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures and con­cealed door­ways which even­tu­ally lead to a soar­ing seven-me­tre void ex­pos­ing a breath­tak­ing wa­ter view.

Here, the main liv­ing zone is sur­rounded by floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows while the wide be­spoke kitchen pro­vides a su­perb culi­nary zone through the use of dark tim­ber that ex­tends into a ceil­ing fea­ture and con­trasts with stain­less-steel work spa­ces.

In the re­lent­less the pur­suit of per­fec­tion, no plas­ter walls can be found in this home,

Rather, it has high gloss two-pack or tim­ber pan­elling.

Out­door liv­ing ar­eas are on par with the in­te­rior as the gen­er­ous 26m wa­ter frontage al­lows for en­ter­tain­ing on both sides.

A 17m lap pool sits be­low a stack of dra­matic black beams which con­ceal a wa­ter fea­ture.

Stacked stone around a wood fire­place cre­ates an al-fresco din­ing area ideal for any weather.

From there, step down to a pri­vate jetty, giv­ing di­rect boat ac­cess to Noosa River.

Bed­room ac­com­mo­da­tion is on the first

floor where the unique ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign con­tin­ues.

The main with en­suite opens to a large pri­vate bal­cony which is par­tially cov­ered and looks di­rectly down on to the wa­ter while to the other side, a re­treat or sec­ond study add to the ap­peal.

Two fur­ther bed­rooms in­clude built-in cab­i­netry and share a cen­tral bath.

Back on the ground floor, a me­dia room has a cleaver built-in study that can be hid­den away, while the room it­self can be closed off with lou­vres if de­sired.

Not of­ten does a home en­com­pass this level of so­phis­ti­cated bril­liance, fam­ily prac­ti­cal­ity and fab­u­lous wa­ter­front po­si­tion.
