This truly charming custom-designed home, built to the highest of standards by its original owners, and designed to be in harmony with its lush rainforest surrounds, offers absolute privacy and serenity on 5.7 glorious easy-care acres (with subdivision potential), in a breathtaking setting, on a no-through road…yet just minutes to Buderim Village, premium private schools, and access to M1 to Brisbane.

The home itself has lashings of French influences and its open plan design facilitates seamless indoor/outdoor living to fully maximise the picturesque outlook and embrace the fabulous Queensland climate.

All on one level, it is complete with four bedrooms (fourth currently used as a media room), two bathrooms, open plan living/dining, study nook, well equipped French kitchen, covered verandah with pergola showcasing picture-postcard view over one of the two dams (one with pumping rights), Hot Spring spa to soak in and admire the vista…your guests will be thoroughly enchanted, plus there’s the partially above-ground 12m lap pool to keep you fit and cool! There is covered parking for at least two vehicles with a carport and a powered 9x6m shed/workshop, plus abundant onsite visitor parking, and space to park a caravan/boat.

The ambience throughout is a delightful mix of French/European meets Sunshine Coast lifestyle; there are many features that enhance appeal and liveability including high-quality insulation in walls and ceilings plus vented roof for all-season comfort, cleverly positioned windows allow light in and cross ventilation, fans, air-conditioning, easy-care tiled floors throughout, intercom, home alarm, generous storage, and a 3mx3m tool shed.

Most of the acreage looks after itself with only approximately 1500m2 of colourful cottage style gardens around the home needing maintaining, the rest of the land lies within the stunning rainforest which frames the property. There’s a raised herb garden, a citrus orchard, and even a boulodrome to play Bocce, all close to the home. The owners built and designed this home to ‘lock and leave’ as they spent six-months a year abroad; so, the maintenance is minimal, and there is an established irrigation system.

With visible neighbours; tucked well away from the no-through road, with a sealed driveway, there is no traffic noise…it’s a veritable sanctuary, a haven of absolute bliss! Original owner occupiers are relocating, creating a RARE opportunity for a new owner to discover the magic.
