This unique home is on the market for the very first time and will suit buyers in the Low $400,000s.

A private commission from renowned Noosa architect Gabriel Poole this very unusual home reflects Gabriel's mantras of affordability, light weight construction and integration of the living spaces with the great outdoors. 15 Sunset Way was designed in between his groundbreaking "Tent House" and "Lake Weyba House".

Featuring a sensational central living area that opens to the outdoors with gas strut lift-up walls and sliding panels. The kitchen has been updated with gas cooktop and beautiful polished sawn timber benchtop.

Bedrooms at each end of the building also open up to embrace the outside. The lovely bathroom is also refurbished.

An undercover outdoor area leads to the grassy backyard complete with shed.
Lake Cooroibah village is a quiet enclave set on lovely Lake Cooroibah on the Noosa River. 15 Sunset Way is a short stroll to the sandy waterfront, and a ten minute drive to all the amenities, shopping, schools, restaurants and other facilities of Tewantin.

This home will not be for everyone, but if you are inspired by dreams of an affordable, low footprint lifestyle then you must inspect 15 Sunset Way.



GABRIEL POOLE (biographical material extracted from a Noosa News article by Erle Levey).

His passing this year came far too early. Gabriel Poole was such a great influence on the Sunshine Coast, and the nation. His work inspired many fellow architects such as John Mainwaring, Lindsay and Kerry Clair, and in turn their work has reached international acclaim... John for the University of the Sunshine Coast Library for instance, and Clares for designing the Sydney 2000 Olympics Village.

Gabriel Poole understood the environment and the climate of the Sunshine Coast, and designed buildings accordingly, as well as to blend with the landscape. He, like John Mainwaring and the Clares, awoke the spirit of the land and those generations who walked here before us.

As Peter Hyatt's put it in his book "Local Heroes: Architects of the Sunshine Coast": "Instead of relying on air conditioning, they filled their buildings with the sights, sounds and scents of the region. They relied on simpler times- of the beach holiday shack and the shearing shed.

They looked to the land, the beaches the ocean the rivers and the mountains for inspiration. They did this with light steel or timber framing, decks and shade sails, steel or cement sheet cladding, then with plywood and natural timbers inside."

Affordability and sustainability remained the key motivators that drove his enduring legacy.
Tent House "dramatically redefined what a house could be and caught the public's imagination in appealing to a sense of freedom through the use of lightweight construction and by reducing dependence on fixed enclosure," according to his Gold Medal citation in Architecture Australia
Queensland deputy premier Jackie Trad said of his nomination, "We have lost a true design visionary. Poole's extensive contribution to our built environment includes delivering Queensland home-owners affordable and environmentally responsible architecture. Driving that agenda and guiding colleagues and emerging architects to be equally impassioned, shapes much of Poole's invaluable legacy."
