It may seem odd to think that a style so uniquely associated with the New York Hamptons would be equally well-suited for the Sunshine Coast, but one look at this spectacular home will have you convinced. It’s the latest offering from the Endeavour Foundation – a gorgeous residence that’s modelled after the famous houses of the wealthy on Long Island.
The home is located in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast in the small town of Eumundi, made famous for its artisan markets. The first prize package also includes two electrical bikes and $50,000 in gold bullion. This is the perfect weekend retreat, retirement home, or permanent residence for anyone who’s always wanted to live in a vibrant arts community surrounded by lush tropical wilderness.
Living in Eumundi
Twice a week, the hinterland village of Eumundi is filled with visitors who come to shop in its renown markets. Local artisans and producers sell their wares at hundreds of brightly coloured stalls where you can find everything from pottery to plants. Baked goods, hand-sewn gems and fresh vegetables are but a few of the many locally grown and crafted items you’ll find every Wednesday and Sunday along Memorial Drive.
The town is also beloved for its brewery, housed in the Imperial Hotel that’s been around since 1911. They produce a wide array of seasonal beers and you can even take a tasting tour if you can pull yourself away from their terrific beer garden.
These are only two of the venues that are likely to become favourites if you’re the lucky winner in draw 416. Both are within walking distance of your new home, though you may prefer to hop on one of the two electrical bikes that are included in the first prize package.
Back home, there’s also plenty to keep you busy. The outdoor living spaces of this luxurious residence are a real showpiece, tailor-made for entertaining. The massive back deck has a top-of-the-line gas BBQ built into a little kitchenette with a bar fridge. There’s also a spacious outdoor lounge and dining area, all of which overlook the inground lap pool. A separate shaded patio lies just off the kitchen, and you can even set a rocker on the front porch if you want to see what’s happening in the neighbourhood.
Inside you’ve got four bedrooms, a stylish loft, a media room and a lounge with a cozy fireplace. What makes this home truly unique, however, is the $110,000 interior design package. The classic Hamptons décor includes plenty of soft furnishings, accent rugs and patterned cushions along with such touches as a clawfoot tub and barn-style sliding doors. It all adds up to unsurpassed comfort, elegance, and impeccable good taste.
This draw also gives you $50,000 in gold bullion. After you’re done paying for water, rates and transportation, you’ll still have $40,000 left over to invest or spend any way you want.
