280 Western Avenue, MONTVILLE QLD 4560



Presenting to the market, a unique property called “The Sanctuary”.

Designed by award winning architects, this home exudes excellence in architecture and quality in every part of the build. Purposely created to feel like a contemporary Canadian lodge, its character and appeal also reflects the iconic status of the quaint Hinterland village of Montville where this magnificent home resides. Offering breathtaking views overlooking rolling hills and Lake Baroon, the property has an air of tranquility and peace.

Built in 2015, the Sanctuary’s only owner sought to bring to life his vision of a home designed to be a complete reflection of beauty. Beauty that is seamlessly achieved by capturing and elegantly drawing in the beauty of nature by bringing the outdoors in. With glass panels and windows surrounding this spectacular home with some reaching up to eight metres high across the Great Room, the majestic landscape of the Sunshine Coast hinterland seems to flow effortlessly into the heart of this gorgeous home. Nature is celebrated in every way through masterful design and use of stone, natural timbers and other quality fixtures to bring a warmth and exquisiteness that completely voids the need for extensive interior decoration and embellishments.

Featuring the Great Room’ which encompasses the family room, dining room and entertainer’s kitchen. Spacious open plan living as well as a separate living room, media room/4th bedroom, large office, 3 generous bedrooms with built-ins and 2 luxurious bathrooms. Bedroom 2 and 3 plus the main bathroom are situated in a separate wing to afford extra privacy for your guests or other family members. To make the most of the beautiful surroundings, the Great Room and its 8 metre high ceiling opens up onto a large alfresco area with fully equipped outdoor dining facilities, integrated BBQ and a stone-claded fire pit for those cosy, wintery nights.

The kitchen is the ultimate in sophistication and practicality. With simple lines and architecturally designed suspended cabinetry topped with Caesar stone, the kitchen is the perfect haven for any culinary creation. This kitchen is equipped with advanced Miele appliances, both electric and gas and a Sirius downdraft exhaust system concealed within the bench, all adds to the finest touches within the home.

The home allows you to be cool in summer and warm in winter. The Canadian western red cedar timber that clads the exterior of the house, is prized for its unequaled insulation capacity and termite resistant properties. The fully insulated walls and ceilings together with fully ducted air-conditioning and underfloor heating guarantees that your comfort is assured all year round. To top it off, an enchanting and clever three-way open fire place is placed in the stone wall of the Great room.

The true character of the Sanctuary is reflected in the use of high-class building materials throughout the home. The home throughout features Blackbutt timber floors and New Guinea rosewood timber in the doors and windows, accompanied by Italian porcelain tiles across the Great room, marble and travertine tiles within the bathrooms, powder room and laundry. This is only a glimpse of how tasteful this home has been designed and built.

With over 421 square metres of liveable space, this large dwelling seeks to minimise its carbon footprint with a fully concealed 60,000 litre concrete water tank with industrial grade pump, an Ecosafe grey water treatment plant, gas hot water system, insulation and underfloor heating across the living areas. All of this surrounded by fully landscaped gardens on an easy to maintain 1250m2.

Situated 400 metres above sea level, the home commands spectacular 180-degree uninterrupted views across Lake Baroon, North Maleny and Witta. Located only a 30 minute drive to the world-class Sunshine Coast beaches and walking distance to the best of what the Hinterland has to offer including waterfalls and creeks, the location alone is just superb. The Obi Obi creek and secluded waterhole is a mere 2km walk distance from the property as well as the entrance to Kondalilla National park and the start of The Great Walks with its myriad of hidden treasures.

This property is exceptional and radiates quality both inside and out. A perfect family retreat or an entertainer’s dream, the Sanctuary is a must see if you’re looking for a showstopper of a home.
