Property Description

This Auction will be held at our 'Collections' In-Rooms Auction Event at AMG Mercedes 824 Ann Street, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane City QLD 4006.Welcome to Maleny House, a floating residence enveloped in the lush rolling hills of the Sunshine Coast hinterland and offering one of Queensland's most spectacular views across the Glass House Mountains National Park.Noosa-based Bark Design Architects was commissioned to create a landmark family home, merging contemporary Australian design with a Japanese-inspired cultural aesthetic.The resulting dwelling is a nod to modernist architecture of the mid-20th century, a tribute to the likes of Schindler, Neutra, Eames, Koenig and Elwood.Meticulously crafted timber elements in the form of decks, screens and walkways blend structures comprised of glass, space-grey Australian corrugated steel and reinforced concrete with the cliffside landscape.The opening of an automatic rusty iron gate reveals a covered walkway, manicured temple garden, standing stones, grass tree, reflection pond, waterfall and private barbecue courtyard area.A wabi sabi design approach focuses on the natural raw beauty in and around this sustainable home which, while solidly anchored, appears to float above the ground plane.Beyond a soaring 4.5m handcrafted timber front door, walls slide away to meld indoor and outdoor spaces, glass panes and louvres bathe the interior in natural light while allowing for ventilation, and recycled blackbutt timber floors add a warmth of colour to soften the aesthetic.Relax with a coffee in the kitchen and gaze out toward Moreton Bay; it's an unforgettable picture. Lounge by the fireplace in the cosy entertainment area or enjoy a tea on the secluded deck where woodworked patterns cleverly frame countryside views.Across a timber walkway is the smaller pavilion, a retreat for guests as well as a music room/office which is enclosed in certified plantation-grown plywood to enhance acoustics.Access the master bedroom via hidden stairs to a glass-framed floating walkway from where the twinkling lights of Brisbane can be seen of an evening, while by day it's the passing of a kookaburra, cockatoo or seagull.The Maleny hills and sparkling blues of the Pacific Ocean are visible from the bedroom itself, which has a walk-in wardrobe and large ensuite, as well as sliding shojis which screen a huge void to the living area below.Maleny House is a widely acclaimed residence designed to induce a sense of happiness, a reminder of how wonderful the world is, a place where beauty is found in simplicity.The popular local village is only three minutes away, while it's just one hour to Brisbane and the international airport.You must register to view this property at the prearranged open homes. Private inspections available - please contact Adrian or Hannah to arrange.
