Unsurpassed views - luxury oceanfront living

Perched on exclusive 'Nobby Headland', is this architect-designed waterfront home with views to die for, from the most spectacular sunsets to the twinkling lights of Townsville and Castle Hill across the always spectacular Coral Sea. 

Entering through the front door, the home opens up before you with a split level design to maximise views. Finishes throughout are top quality, using local products where available, such as Burdekin stone in the stylish polished concrete floors in the living areas and hoop pine floorboards to the upper bedrooms. The exterior is clad in ironbark to give that beach house feel with windows and doors of commercial aluminium design, providing durability and protection from the tropical environment.

The well-appointed kitchen, dining area and sunken lounge are perfect for entertaining with huge sliding walls of glass opening up to seamlessly blend indoor-outdoor living, spilling out onto the wrap-around covered deck with panoramic water views. Ideally situated to capture cool sea breezes, the property is designed for optimum cross-ventilation with warm air rising through the double height central area to escape through well-placed louvre windows. 

Wake up to those magnificent views in the master bedroom - there's no need to draw the curtains here! Opening up onto a private balcony, this is the perfect spot for a morning coffee and contemplation. The ensuite bathroom features a picture window with gorgeous stone bath looking out across the water, wet-room open shower and super-stylish vanity. 

The second bedroom also has a private balcony and ensuite bathroom with walk-in-shower. All three bedrooms are quite separate from each other providing great privacy, each with their own bathroom. The third bedroom is located just off the hallway near the front door and adjacent to the third bathroom which is ideal for guest use being just a few steps from the main living areas.  

A mezzanine living area allows you to have a separate TV lounge or workspace as all you will want to look at in the formal lounge is the view!

Good storage is provided under the stairs as well as a large lockable walk-in-store in the generously proportioned laundry, which leads to an external utility area. Fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans throughout, this house really does tick all the boxes. 

The sparkling inground pool is solar-heated in winter and has been built free-form to work with the surrounding landscape just off the main deck with its own sun deck area for those lazy days. 

With title extending right down to the high water mark, paths meander around the block, easily taking you down to the rocks below where you can swim or simply enjoy a bit off rock-hopping. Viewpoints with seating have been created around the property to enjoy different aspects at various times of day. Watch the red glow of the sunrise play on Castle Hill in the morning and in the late afternoon, the sun setting over the water is a spectacle you won't get tired of. 

Nobby Headland is an exclusive enclave of 17 lots, with a private beach and sunset deck where the residents often gather as the sun goes down. Home to several award-winning and architect-designed homes, yet retaining a very relaxed feel with a focus on the landscape and natural environment, this is a truly unique, pleasant and peaceful place to live. A private walkway leads down to Picnic Bay beach and its leafy mall, with a selection of eateries and the picturesque jetty that is always a delightful place to stroll. 

A 5 minute drive brings you to the ferry terminal where passenger and car ferries run all day every day to Townsville. From the ferry, it is just a 10 minute drive to the airport so with direct flights from most major cities, you can reach paradise in no time at all! Magnetic Island has 23 sandy beaches and bays and averages 320 days of sunshine per year so is very popular with visitors from the south flocking up in winter - making it an ideal location for a beautiful holiday home or for those lucky enough to be able to do so, enjoy a relaxed lifestyle living on a tropical island, with all the amenities of 'civilisation'. With two-thirds of the island designated National Park, with walking trails to scenic lookouts, and a great selection of activities from horse-riding to golf to watersports, Maggie really does offer something for everyone.
