Tucked away in the lush surrounds of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland on 2.5 acres of elevated land, is a hidden stone treasure just waiting for a discerning eye.
For lack of better words, one can only describe it as a bespoke, sandstone castle but what you’ll be met with on arrival is really so much more.
This masterpiece of a home took half a decade to complete – with each piece of sandstone hand cut on the property by renowned stonemason Angel Buj-Casanoves.
Property Lane Realty sales associate Athena Law said the result was a “true labour of love”.
“The handcrafted aspect of the property is absolutely breathtaking – the passion for this home is evident with every detail,” Athena said.
“It’s inconceivable that anyone in this day and age, where homes go up in a month or two, would put in this sort of time and dedication to the building of a home – it’s just not done anymore.”
The European-inspired chateau – ‘La Tourelle’, which translated from French means “small tower or turret” – is aptly named with one of its most distinctive features an actual turret.
And from this actual turret, serenity will envelope you as you take in the far-off coastal views, which go for days.
Its main residence comprises 1250-sqm of living space currently housing four generations of one family, so there truly is room for everyone.
The living areas expand across three levels and are detailed with extravagance – marble floors, textured concrete, exotic wall art that respond to the natural environment – it’s incredibly marvellous and exotic.
There are seven bedrooms, four with en suites, in addition to the stunning main bedroom suite. Exposed timber beams and gigantic en suite with spa bath overlooking a private verandah are just a few of the main bedroom’s incredible details.
There’s even a climate-controlled wine cellar and chef’s kitchen – appointed with all the modern conveniences, ensuring that entertaining will be a true pleasure for hosts and guests alike.
Could this property be any more impressive? Well, just have a look outdoors and you’ll discover it is.
Established gardens, an orchard, dams and chicken run, create idyllic outdoor surrounds and the 12-metre lap pool will provide respite from Queensland’s warm summers.
There’s more than enough rainwater in the tanks to make sure the gardens are well-watered along with spring-fed irrigation throughout the property and an impressive solar system that will provide sustainable living to the property.
La Tourelle is a testament to true craftsmanship and design – the setting grounds alone will make you fall in love. Athena said one really needed to inspect the property in person, to truly understand its extravagance.
There’s already been several celebrity homebuyers through the property, and while Athena said she can’t divulge names, she did suggest they were influential names in the Australian music industry.
So if you want to live like a rockstar, there’s still time.
