Minyama Waters – 117 Mooloolah Drive


Highly regarded as the most exclusive position in the deep waterfront precinct of Minyama Waters, this iconic residence faces due north to river and embodies the spirit of experimentation and imagination. It is without doubt one of Australia’s landmark riverfront positions – with 932m2 and an incredible 64.82 metres of river frontage. It is simply one of a kind, to rival any other an international level.

The nautical views are rare and irreplaceable to say the least! As the home completely dominates the north-eastern tip of Mooloolah Drive, with uninterrupted views sweeping across Minyama Island, Mooloolaba skyline and its famous harbour in the fore-water with Pt Cartwright lighthouse reserve at its peak in the distance.

Originally purchased for its incomparable situation and outlook, the owners secured the position and tailored the home for a long holding using creative vision and precise execution to create a residence that sparks your curiosity at every angle.

The Forrester family have loved living here, raising children in a water playground with on-site lifestyle attributes including two separate pontoons for harbour access and two individual double garages. This is your welcome with the main residence strikingly rising majestically from its front parking court.

The Architects inspiration was a nod to its riverfront position using a luxury ship as the concept – creating a home that is fascinatingly sculptural on the outside and deceptively spacious on the inside. After entering the residence and taking in the initial view, it is the sense if space and light filled living zones that really captivate. The home works as well today as it did at its creation with careful consideration at the design stage to create separate living and relaxing zones over each of its two storeys. The result is a generously open planned interior that spills out to wonderful outdoor living areas.

Expectant for a home of this calibre there are several living, dining and lounge areas to relax and enjoy with construction details and authentic craftsmanship on walls and ceilings that embody the spirit of luxury.

The upper level is a family focused and is the ideal location for the owners retreat. A grand space that is angular with soaring ceilings and extensive windows to capture dramatic views wherever possible. The home also features a self-contained guest quarters complete with a bedroom suite, lounge, kitchen, bathroom, private riverfront balcony and separate external entrance.

Of course there are several guest rooms, an office and sun room with beautifully accompanying bathrooms and powder rooms. The pictures speak novels and to capsulate all that this house has to offer is very difficult.

This extraordinary private holding is an unrivalled riverside landmark and world class offering.

A complete inventory of the homes lifestyle and luxury attributes can be made available on qualified introduction.
