A picturesque turquoise sea and a clear blue sky provide a brilliant backdrop to 46 Seaview Terrace, one of Noosa’s hottest properties.
The $18 million home, currently being marketed for sale by Tom Offermann is on the market by its current owner, tennis great Pat Rafter. Nestled on a parcel of land towards the northern end of Sunshine Beach, the contemporary homeexudes a cool resort vibe, with both interior and exteriors epitomising luxury.
With a backyard of beautiful golden sand, the property’s location adds to its allure. Its proximity to the Sunshine Beach Surf Club and a range of shopping options make it easy to feel part of the local community, yet its open interior coupled with its closeness to Noosa National Park and walks to Alexandra Bay allow residents an element of serenity, privacy and peace.
The interior itself has a personality that heavily reflects the property’s setting. It is breezy and bright, with open-plan living clearly a focal point in the mind of architect John Burgess. The cool white walls coupled with a smooth mixture of carpet, marble and wooden flooring provide a relaxed feel and mimic the seamlessness of beachside daily life. There is little rush for residents, with gentle waves a naturally ticking clock.
Despite the outdoors offering so much, the $18 million home boasts a range of features that focus on flexibility, style and comfort. The seven bedrooms include a master with a private deck and ensuite, as well as three that can be easily combined to create one large play area or studio. Cooking is an artform, with views of the seascape and a large butler’s pantry the key elements. Terraces allow residents to soak up the sun without moving an inch from their doorstep, and a fireplace provides the place with a cosy retreat during the colder months. To top things off, a home theatre, study, media room and wine cellar ensure that days without the sunshine are very well spent.
The house has a private wing by the garden that can be used as an office, musical hideaway or extra bedroom, and the garden itself is immaculate. The outdoor spaces are perfect entertainment areas, the infinity pool a pristine centrepoint. There is also a private pathway down to the sundrenched beach and rolling tide.
The beautiful home typifies the versatility of the Noosa community. Not only a bustling holiday destination, the coastal community is a place to live peacefully, whilst still near to the vibrancy of central Noosa. The property is not the first of its kind in the area, with numerous other multi-million dollar homes dotting the land surrounding the beach. The number of discerning buyers favouring the area has undeniably contributed to the growing number of luxury homes. Even so, the $18 million architectural masterpiece is certainly one of the brighter lights in the area, with an elegance that makes it one of the true jewels of the coast.
