  • 21 Wilgan Place, Buderim

    This modern beauty is everything you would need in a beautiful, Buderim home. A very versatile floor plan, including a fully separate, self-contained studio or office, just perfect for guests or those wanting complete separation with its own entry from the street. The main home consists of two very distinct living zones and a kids wing complete with their own study area. The decks on either side of the house give you options for entertaining in complete privacy as the property adjoins a beautiful and tranquil natural rainforest style setting. The spacious kitchen is the centrepiece with ample storage and all the mod cons a fussy chef deserves, interacting with the open plan lounge, dining and the entertaining decks. The oversized master suite boasts a large walk-in robe, double vanity, double shower and a separate toilet. There are extra storage spaces throughout, ducted air-conditioning, solar panels and simply nothing extra to do but, view, buy and move in to enjoy this stunning home.

    - 4 bed plus a self contained studio/dual living option/home office
    - Spacious separate living zones

  • 211 Dales Road, Chevallum

    Your private oasis awaits just a short 15-20 minutes (approx.) to either Mooloolaba or Maroochydore Beach, less than 10 minutes to the University of the Sunshine Coast and 5 minutes the Sunshine Coast Grammar School. This modern, contemporary home is perfectly situated on a useable 13.8 acres (55,475m2).

    The main home features everything you would expect including square set high ceilings and ducted air-conditioning. The design has the parents retreat accessed via the enclosed breezeway and separated from the kids wing by the main living areas.

    The kitchen features a massive granite drop side island bench and enormous amounts of storage space and is finished with quality appliances and induction cooktop. The practical designs allow the chef to watch over the kids playing in the in-ground sparkling pool whilst preparing dinner. A functional butler’s pantry is accessed via a feature sliding door. The pantry effectively hides away mess, houses the dishwasher and includes a separate wet area for after dinner clean up.

    The kid’s wing includes a separate living and entertainment area with none of the extra-large bedrooms sharing a common wall. The kid’s bathroom cleverly enables simultaneous usage to help speed through those busy before school mornings.

    The main shed is two levels and 10m x 8m x 6m. It served as the family residence during the house construction. Downstairs is now a single bay garage and an air-conditioned self-contained studio apartment, great for family or guests. Upstairs is built to be the ultimate man cave, fully insulated and air-conditioned with yellow tongue flooring on the floors, walls and ceilings. If you want to hang something, no need to look for a stud, just go for it.

    The second 11m x 6m shed and large flow bore are located on the cleared flat land approximately 150m from the main house. This land is perfect for a horse or a cow or two and an outdoor lifestyle for the kids. The bitumen ½ court basketball court, 100m flying fox, pool and motor-cycle track will keep the kids and their friends busy for hours.

    The property is not just off the grid, it is off the ‘Everything’. The property is not connected to any electricity, water or sewer services. Total water storage is 110000 litres comprised of 90000 litres in underground tanks and two 10000 litres above ground tanks. Electricity is provided by a Positronic off grid solar system consisting of approximately 15Kva in panel and 30Kwh of usable battery storage. On cloudy days or if you just want to run the ceiling panel heaters on deck during a winter dinner, a 12Kva generator automatically steps in to take the load.

    If you are in the market for a complete executive escape yet need to remain close to all the Sunshine Coasts amenities, then you will struggle to find a better small acreage property than this.

  • 22-26 Turnbull Place, Tanawha

    Can a home truly feel like a ‘resort?’ Well, the answer will be revealed upon your inspection of 22-26 Turnbull Place in Tanawha! The attention to detail is definitely obvious from the moment you set your eyes on this home from the street through to every facet of this stunning property.

    The home consists of four large bedrooms (including two with ensuites) and a fully functional office. The master suite deserves a mention, as it is everything you would imagine in a six star Bali resort.

    The Chef’s kitchen, of course with butler’s pantry, is the centre piece of the home, where your family & friends can enjoy the entertainment both inside and outside as both areas seamlessly flow onto another. Yes, there is a purpose built media room as you would also expect.

    Three car internal garaging plus three undercover carports allows for your ‘toys’ to be looked after and if you desire, there are plans for a ‘shed’ as well.

    Indulge in your own 17mtr lap pool which runs into an 8x4mtr pool as well. The outdoor entertaining pavilion is complete with fireplace and TV where you will no doubt spend your hours of leisure. Staying outside the home, the meticulously maintained yet easy care tropical landscaping enriches the property – again that word ‘resort’ comes to mind, but it must been seen to be truly appreciated.

    What is worth mentioning is the ‘yoga’ hut. A little oasis on its own, hidden in the tropical rainforest style gardens that will give hours of solitude only broken by the sound of the water features and bird song. I’m going to leave the description of the meandering water featured gardens, as again they will only be truly appreciated upon your inspection.

    Surrounded by other multi-million dollar homes that enjoy this Blue Chip location and only minutes to Sunshine Coast Grammar School, the University of the Sunshine Coast and our other smorgasbord of schooling options.
