The sounds of the rainforest

FRAMED by a spectacular rainforest and surrounded by a landscaped garden, this architecturally-designed home blends beautifully with its surroundings.

It is a scene which evokes a sense of peace and tranquillity yet it is still within close proximity to the bustling Buderim village.

Together with the architect, the owners have created a plan intended for ease of living, privacy and entertainment. Their brief was to maximise the outlook from the decks while providing a dual living arrangement for their family.

The result was a contemporary lay-out accentuating the northerly views across the canopy. Upstairs, a bank of sliding bi-fold doors connect the interior living space of kitchen, lounge and dining room with the fully-screened deck creating a Florida room, an ideal feature for the Sunshine Coast's sub-tropical conditions and a wonderful entertaining space.

Louvred windows together with elevated ceilings create cross-flow ventilation and a feeling of space and volume. Also, on this floor is the main bedroom, ensuite and walk-in robe and the generously-sized custom-designed study.

The ground floor also has its own very large deck onto which the three bedrooms open out.

The main downstairs bedroom has a bi-fold door connecting it to the rumpus room, kitchenette and laundry. This is a very comfortable and private area for an older relative or teenagers wanting their own space.

There is ample hallway storage at this level and an over-sized double garage incorporating workbench and custom-built cabinets.

Expansive yet functional, this home caters for every possibility, an intimate family gathering or brilliant garden parties; entertain friends on the large balcony or just find a quiet place to read a book.

Conveniently positioned close to excellent schools, including Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Matthew Flinders College, Buderim Mountain school and the University of the Sunshine Coast.

It is a short drive to the Coast's beautiful beaches, the new hospital precinct, tourism attractions and outstanding golf facilities.

For those who commute regularly to Brisbane, the Bruce Highway is only minutes away. So, too, is the Sunshine Motorway which links with Mooloolaba, Maroochydore and Noosa.
