YOU’LL NEVER TIRE OF THE VIEW FROM THIS LAKEFRONT PROPERTY THAT’S A CALMING OASIS
Surrender to the beauty of an exclusive and inspiring estate which presides serenely on the lakefront in its own extraordinary world of breathtaking Weyba Downs.
Just 10 minutes from Noosa Main Beach, the property’s security gate opens to reveal botanical-style gardens either side of the driveway, an undeniably incomparable setting on Lake Weyba and a masterpiece of man and nature, which takes centre stage.
From the walkway and front entrance with Balinese statement doors and wrought-iron features, there’s no doubting the integrity of the house design, which is sublimely in tune with the idyllic subtropical climate, northerly aspect and maximisation of major water features to complement the prominence of Lake Weyba with its white-sand beach.
An oasis of calm pervades throughout and the balance of earthiness and weightlessness is juxtaposed by natural light, lofty ceilings, polished timber floors and walkways, stone and a gregarious personality in the overgenerous spaces.
The central hub — a retreat to casual living — has an outdoor kitchen and barbecue, opening out to the deck and the water lilyadorned, spring-fed lagoon.
To the right, is a purpose-built sanctuary with a spa, gym and ample room for massage tables.
Also in this wing and overlooking the lagoon is a massive master suite with sitting room, large walk-in robe and sunken bath.
To the left off the hub are large living and dining spaces with a two-way Mazport gas fire with sandstone surrounds and feature walls.
A wall of louvres opens to the lagoon and lake.
The vast kitchen with 3.5m island bench, stone benchtops, Vj-profile cabinetry and Fisher & Paykel appliances including a gas hob, have been designed with the professional chef in mind.
Nearby is a study.
In the northern wing, accessed by a covered walkway, are three bedrooms in two pavilions, with decks out to the 11m long infinity-edged, pandanus-fringed pool.
Two of these share a family-size bathroom and the other has an ensuite.
When it comes to impressing guests, the piece de resistance is the one-bedroomed Lake House, which is linked to the main house by cantilevered overwater walkways.
It’s only metres away from the lake, has a small kitchen, bathroom and wrapround deck.
Nearby is the poolside cabana with gas teppanyaki grill and chill-out bar.
Build sandcastles on the beach, stand up paddleboard, windsurf, kayak or fish from your tinnie on the lake.
You can even play golf on a nine-tee, threehole golf course.
At the other end of the spectrum, entertaining can be on a grand scale: casual by the pool, or a picnic under the paperbarks near the lake while looking for koalas and kangaroos.
