106/2 Richmond Close Coolum Beach
Very occasionally, a property takes your breath away. A property where design, function and location combine in near perfect harmony to create a truly unique home. 106/2 Richmond Close is such a home.
Nestled into the canopy of a protected pocket of coastal rainforest, with panoramic views of the ocean and Mount Coolum, this stunning award-winning architectural home must be seen to be believed.
Sitting on 1,568 sq metres of landscaped gardens, it feels like a hinterland sanctuary but is only 400 metres from Third Bay - Coolum's hidden beach - and less than 2km from the town centre and four other glorious Sunshine Coast beaches.
The secure location affords its residents complete privacy to enjoy the picture-book views of mountain, bush or ocean from almost every room of this 500m2 house.
Each generous room connects seamlessly with the next via expansive oak-floored corridors and lofty ceilings with frequent glass walls to gaze at different views of this magical landscape.
Despite the grandeur of its design, 106/2 Richmond Close is very much a home. Every necessity and luxury of modern living is covered. The gourmet kitchen has sweeping natural granite bench-tops, European appliances and endless storage. It is made for entertaining but perfect for a quiet dinner at home. It connects with the open plan living spaces of dining and living, which has its own cantilevered day-bed nook with views to Old Woman Island, Point Cartwright and the northern tip of Moreton Island.
Adjoining the dining space, is a multi-functional outdoor room sitting high among the tree-tops perched on a uniquely engineered steel V-frame. With its awning picture-window framing Mount Coolum, the verandah can be easily adapted from completely open to a closed-in room via the fully retractable curtain glass doors.
Then there is the master suite where you can fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves and wake to views of sea, rainforest and soaring sea eagles by remotely opening the automatic blinds. The vast ensuite bathroom includes boundless storage under and over the 2.7m long stone-topped vanity with dual sinks set against the verdant backdrop and occasional song of a whipbird. The walk-in robe is almost another room and features ample hanging and drawer space for your walk to the beach or a night out in nearby Noosa.
Also upstairs, is the purpose-designed office, with built-in desk, shelving and cupboards. It's close to all the property's key amenities, yet private enough for the most important of on-line meetings. With the laundry and drying deck in convenient reach, a couple can live comfortably on this level, while leaving downstairs for children and guests in their own retreat.
A lift and stairs connect the two living floors. Each of the two downstairs bedrooms and a separate lounge feature glass walls enabling uninterrupted views. Downstairs is serviced by separate bath and powder rooms.
From the lower level living there is easy access to the completely private pool and sun deck where you feel transported to a tropical idyll. Occasionally you'll catch glimpses of wallabies grazing in the neighbouring bush or simply take in the beautiful native gardens of grevilia, banksia, butterflies and birds.
The gardens have been planted and designed to be easy to maintain, with a full commercial-grade irrigation system fed from either the 15,000L rainwater tank or mains water.
For those who want to do more than relax in paradise, there is a substantial downstairs storeroom and workshop. You can also house up to four cars in the fully enclosed garage (or your combination of cars and watercraft) whilst another utility room is perfect for your bikes and other leisure equipment.
