The hinterland of the Sunshine Coast is filled with surprising delights and the famous markets of Eumundi rank among the most popular. If you’ve strolled through on a Sunday, you may have wondered what it might be like to live in this thriving arts community. With the latest Endeavour draw, you may not have to wonder for much longer.
The prize home is a Hamptons-style beauty within walking distance of the Eumundi Markets. There’s also $50,000 in gold bullion and a couple of electric bikes to get you around town. This is the best of casual country living, less than half an hour from Noosa Heads Main beach but miles from the noise and bustle of the city. If you’re looking for a luxurious hinterland getaway, you really need to check this one out.
Markets, Artists, and Hinterland Serenity
For over thirty years, people have been flocking to the bi-weekly Eumundi Markets. Beneath the heritage-listed fig trees, hundreds of local artisans and farmers set up their stalls of produce and lovingly crafted wares. Local musicians show up to entertain visitors at what has become a celebrated venue for homegrown talent. If you can make it, bake it, sew it or grow it, you’ll find it at the Eumundi Markets.
When you’re done browsing the stalls, be sure to stop in for a pint at the Imperial Hotel. It’s the home of the Eumundi Brewery with its very own Lager, Pale Ale and seasonal beers. You can take a tasting tour or just relax in the beer garden and soak up the vibe. On weekends, there’s always live entertainment and with a top-class venue this close to home, it may be awhile before you feel like wandering to the coast.
If you do decide to start up the car, all the attractions of the Sunshine Coast are waiting just down the road. Go for a hike on Mt. Coolum and marvel at the view, spend the day on Coolum beach or stop in at a trendy café in Noosa Heads. Whether you’re ready to move to the hinterland full-time or want to spend your holidays in your own million-dollar retreat, you’ll love your new home in Eumundi.
A Hamptons Home
The Hamptons is a ritzy area on Long Island in New York where the rich and famous go to play. The homes have a distinctive architecture that’s becoming popular in Australia for its elegance, comfort and relaxed styling. Typically, a Hamptons interior will use light blue tones and pale greys to add a touch of colour to a predominantly white palette. They’ll also have wooden floors, pendant lights and country-style cupboards. What really marks a Hamptons home, however, is the use of soft furnishings and lots of cushions and throw rugs. The result is a home that looks incredibly classy but invites you to put up your feet and get comfortable.
The home in Eumundi has all of these features and more. Touches like sliding barn doors, distressed wood furnishings and lots of rattan perfect the overall sense of livable elegance. The upper loft adds the finishing touch to a home that also has multiple living spaces, a media room, and four large bedrooms. Outside, you’ll find a wrap-around deck with an al fresco that comes complete with a professional-grade BBQ, bar fridge and kitchenette. Alongside is an in-ground lap pool that spans the rear of the property. There’s plenty of room for sunbathing and no shortage of places to sit in the exterior lounge area.
With another $50,000 in gold bullion at your disposal, you’ll be able to cover your rates and water and still have plenty left over for a few extra toys. Perhaps you’d like something to put in your two-car garage for those days you’re not out on the bikes. Whatever you decide to do with the gold, you won’t have to worry about furnishings or fixtures. With $110,000 going into the interior design and another $20,121 in electrics, this outstanding prize package has you covered.
