Noosa Heads house description

This brand new 3 bedroom beach house has been designed by one of Australia's young gun architects to offer a unique and secluded retreat in close proximity to the famed beaches and conservation areas of Noosa Heads. The shack has been featured in a number of architecture publications and has recently won a regional award from the Institute of Architects.

Located in Settler's cove, overlooking a koala conservation area bordering Noosa Sound but only seconds from the shops of Noosa Junction and a few minutes drive to either Noosa Main Beach or Sunshine Beach.

The design captures every breeze on the enormous entertaining deck which floats above the ground providing tree top viewing of the the spectacular native birdlife and other wildlife. At night, the external lighting transforms the architectural features of the house and surrounding vegetation.

The house has been designed to cater for large family groups who want a holiday house that complements the ebb and flow of a relaxed beach holiday but can also provide that special destination for lasting memories.

So Close to Everything
The house has been sited to take maximum advantage of retained vegetation and the nearby conservation areas. The adjacent walking/bicycle path can have you to the public jetty fronting Noosa Sound in a few brief minutes and further on to Hasting Street and Noosa Main Beach and the national park or to Noosaville and the sunday markets and riverfront restaurants.

The house features a luxury kitchen, dining room, powder room, living area/sleepout and entertainment deck under a spectacular vaulted ceiling with the master bedroom/ensuite on the same level.

At ground level there is a second bathroom, laundry and separate toilet with a guest room and bunkhouse (sleeps 4) and private decks and verandahs and gas BBQ.

All finishes have been carefully selected to make cleaning a breeze.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Welcome to our holiday home. We hope that your stay in The Shack is a perfect underpinning to a memorable holiday in Noosa. The Shack grew out of a dream to create an opportunity for our family to experience a little of what it was like to grow up in Sunshine Beach during the 1970’s where my parents had a shack. Many things have changed since then but the magic of Noosa is still there in a way that few other places in the world can match. The house was designed by Paul Hotston and Morgan Jenkins of Phorm Architecture to provide a refuge from a hectic world and form the basis for extended family holidays. Mick Devlin from Braeden Constructions applied the skills of a true master craftsman in bringing the house to life. We love the shack, we hope you will too. Mike and Sim Burgess

              Why the Owner Chose Noosa Heads:
              We designed this house to be different - I lived on the beach here for many years and wanted to recapture the simplicity that was the basis for so many great family gatherings. it's a home that is special to be in, keep you relaxed and use as a base to explore the natural beauty of the area.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              These days, Noosa is a relaxed, cozy beach town nestled within a National Park precinct that is now a recognized UNESCO World Biosphere conservation area. It is home to a population of koalas who inhabit the area all year round. The Shack looks right out over this conservation area, and, if you’re lucky enough, you may just catch a glimpse of these koalas going about their daily life. Whether you’re enjoying being surrounded by Native pine trees, families of kookaburras and scrub fowls, relaxing in the sun at the beach, shopping in the world class boutiques, or feasting in famous restaurants, all of this is only a hop, skip and a jump away from your doorstep.
