Spanish castle hidden in the Noosa hinterland

first_imgThe home has a strong Spanish feel. One of several outdoor spaces to relax in. 74 Foxtail Rise, Doonan Qld 4562EVERY home may well be a castle, but this family has taken that to heart, resulting in a Spanish “castle” hidden in a Queensland forest.Sitting on the edge of a ridge in the Noosa hinterland, the solid three-level property sits fortress-like looking over surrounding forest. It’s solid, with concrete floors, walls and in the lower levels even concrete ceilings too, according to agent Alex Harris of Noosa4Sale.“It is an imposing house built in the Spanish style, and incredibly, built of concrete,” she told The Courier-Mail.Located just a 10-minute drive from Noosaville, the four bedroom, three bathroom home at 74 Foxtail Rise, Doonan, has been priced to sell at $1.2m.

Kids and dogs can run through it — you won’t hear it, they can’t ruin the floor. “And while there is no media room, each bedroom is massive, with plenty of room for desks, TVs, play areas and room for sleep overs. And who wouldn’t want to have a sleep over in a Spanish Castle?” GET THE COURIER-MAIL’S FREE REAL ESTATE NEWS DIRECT TO INBOX Unlike many real castles, this home has aircon, instant gas hot water, gas cooktop, 5kW solar power, 90,000 litres of rainwater storage and an envirocycle waste system.“The current owners love it, and parting with it has been a difficult decision, but they want to pack the kids up and travel around Australia for a year or two so the house has to go,” Ms Harris said.“While the property looks like it is mostly impenetrable forest, it has walking trails cut through to the spring-fed dam, and into the bush reserve at the rear boundary.“There are so many lovely outdoor rooms. My favourite is the conversation pit atop the concrete rainwater tanks. It is just such a great use of the area. But nothing can beat a 12m by 7m terrace on the top floor with views to Noosa.” The acreage property is on the edge of a forest reserve. The little touches transport this home to another continent. Great spot for a party.The home has a Mediterranean herb garden and more than enough room to build a pool should you want one close to the house.Ms Harris called it “an idyllic sanctuary for free-range children and adults alike”.“The garage is huge and is designed to fit two cars parked in tandem each side, or as the current owners have, collectors car and boat on one side, car, bar and pool table the other. “The cellar and additional storage under the house is also quite amazing. The house itself is an adventure.” FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOKlast_img read more
