Resting above a panoramic vista taking in the green expanse that is Chevallum and beyond towards the ridges of Bald Knob and Maleny, this half-acre treasure is gifted an additional 60 acres of neighbouring farmland in glorious views and tranquillity.
An amazing coast-meets-rural experience awaits the new owners of this magnificent home at Palmwoods. From the second you hit the country lane it rests on, to the moment you arrive inside the French entry door, you know you have left the daily world behind for yours: A veritable farm-like sanctuary for easy family living and hours of elegant entertaining … without any of the maintenance.
Impeccably renovated by its current owner, interior decorator Debra Kistler of DDK Consulting, Debra has transformed an original brick home into a stunning residence with unmistakable Coastal Hamptons flair. This home and property is now a place of exceptional quality and understated luxury where through windows glimpses of country roads, 100-year old storybook trees and quaint sheds frame the dreamy landscape.
You almost have to pinch yourself to realise this property can be found in Palmwoods within 3-5 minutes distance of elite schools Nambour and Suncoast Christian Colleges and only 8 minutes to Sunshine Coast Grammar and the Sunshine Motorway. So serene and calm with perfect north-eastern aspect, the lay of the land and breathtaking outlook, this home is a visual delight fit for a glossy magazine cover.
From classic natural accents to striking black and white tones, the beautifully-presented interior and exterior embrace its surrounding aesthetic beautifully. The split-level design is adorned with multiple in-outdoor living spaces, including wrap-around travertine patios and an expansive timber deck directly facing the green panorama. The interiors have been opened up to enjoy views of a centrepiece mango tree in the backyard and undulating lawns for kids to let their imagination run wild in and around the inviting 11.5-metre pool.
Inside, engineered European oak flooring and feature light pieces are enhanced by soaring raked ceilings and an array of glass windows and doors with crisp white Plantation louvers. The entry level is dedicated to an executive office, separate formal lounge with Masport combustion fireplace with granite base and the open-plan dining zone with adjacent kitchen. A foodie’s dream, the kitchen features high-quality integrated Italian fixtures, handmade tile splashbacks, 2pac cabinetry, reconstituted stone marble benchtops and a black granite sink with brushed gold mixer. A gas-lift café window opens to create a bar on the eastern patio and is the perfect spot for martinis on a Friday afternoon.
The home’s four generously proportioned bedrooms include wall-to-wall linen curtains, Plantation shutters, pure wool carpets, built-in wardrobes and a discrete walk-in-robe for the master retreat. The upper level features two bedrooms that share their own bathroom and the sumptuous, air-conditioned master with ensuite. The lower level features a large, carpeted family living room and additional super king-size bedroom. This lower level’s relaxed design features popular sliding barn doors and the third shower bathroom. With easy in-outdoor flows this zone has great potential for dual living, extended families and/or as private teenage retreat. The home includes a fantastic and well-equipped mudroom/laundry and a walk-in linen cupboard.
The bathrooms are sensational and consist of floating cabinetry, chrome taps, floor-to-ceiling honed calacatta porcelain tiles, rain showers, frameless glass screens, stone benchtops and hexagon splashbacks. The master ensuite includes a beautiful freestanding bath.
Charming remains of the first home give the property an added sense of peace and character. There is an original three-bay shed with workshop/artist studio that could become a future Air BnB and the house’s solid brick foundations below can be accessed and used as a wine cellar or cheese room.
Located on the eastern side of Palmwoods, this property’s proximity to everything the coast has to offer is excellent. The property has NBN connected, solar hot town water, a septic system and ducted vacuum throughout the home. The gardens are easily maintained and includes established flowering trees and hedges, a vegetable garden, citrus trees, bocce lawn and outdoor shower near the pool. An original 1980s brick home expertly transformed with integrity and luxurious quality, no stone has been left unturned in the renovation of this property with epic hinterland views and highly desirable lifestyle appeal for its privileged new owner.
