‘Sanquhar’ – Exquisite Plantation Style Estate
Begin the day waking up to a glorious sunrise over the Pacific Ocean and end the day watching a magnificent sunset over the Eumundi Ranges and Mount Cooroy in this stunning Noosa Hinterland home. ‘Sanquhar’ is a beautifully designed and exquisitely renovated plantation style estate nestled into a secluded ridgetop location just 10 minutes from Noosa.
The Sunrise Road property has undergone an extensive renovation aimed at retaining the sprawling home’s original Federation style grandeur, warmth and ambience, whilst improving the quality and layout to create a feeling of quiet luxury.
The result is one of those rare, perfect marriages of built and natural environments, a home that invites the expansive ocean and hinterland views into the casually refined interiors where rich timber tones accentuate bright open spaces with an understated contemporary elegance.
Surrounded by shaded verandas with polished timber decks and priceless views, the main house exudes a warm, sophisticated charm, with the breezy features of a traditional Queenslander estate, coupled with bright, spacious interiors creating a feeling that is open yet intimate.
The Plantation style and design has been thoughtfully carried throughout, with traditional features such as dark timber floors, white walls and timber fretwork, soaring 3.3 meter ceilings, and the highest quality, bespoke materials. A walk through the house and grounds evokes the feelings of some of the grand island residences of the Bahamas or St Barts.
The spacious formal lounge and dining area is enhanced with a beautiful timber table that seats 14 and a convenient Jetmaster gas fireplace, opening out onto the adjacent veranda and outdoor lounge area overlooking the pool. The ocean views from this aspect, whether relaxing with a cool drink, dining al fresco or enjoying a swim, are simply magnificent.
Adjacent, the informal lounge and dining area has its own ambience, with an open wood burning fireplace, sweeping views of Mount Cooroy and a marvellous chef’s kitchen. This open, light and breezy part of the house encourages informal entertaining as much as culinary excellence. Once again, dark timber floors contrast beautifully with white Carrara marble counter tops, hand-painted solid timber cabinetry and imported ceramic tiles, with the large freestanding Ilve double oven and Quasair professional range hood taking centre stage.
The main residence includes a grand Master Suite, with ocean views, Carrara marble Ensuite with double shower his and her vanities and clawfoot tub. Three additional ensuite bedrooms each have French doors opening directly onto the verandas to bring in plenty of soft light and their own lovely views. A comfortable study and generous laundry with walk in linen cupboard are quietly tucked away.
Connected by a covered walkway to the main house is the separate Guest House. A lovely guest bedroom with ensuite and private balcony looks out across the ocean to Noosa, whilst upstairs a sprawling media and entertainment lounge featuring operable skylights provides a casually elegant getaway perfect for relaxing with music, books, large screen television or enjoying time with family and friends. A three car garage with workshop area, built in storage and separate loft store room complete this area.
‘Sanquhar’ is located in a premium position within the coveted ‘Golden Triangle’ hinterland zone, perfectly positioned to capture the cooling ocean breezes. The unique ridgetop location, with its easily maintained two acres, is set off by lovely established tropical gardens, beautiful mature gum trees and a full sized floodlit tennis court.
Surrounded by large acreage properties, and accessed up a gated tree lined driveway, the home is extremely private, whilst being a mere ten minute drive from the fine dining, sophisticated shopping and eclectic nightlife of Noosa. With Brisbane less than a 90 minute drive away, and 25 minutes from the Sunshine Coast Airport, ‘Sanquhar’s rural luxury is amazingly accessible.
