Settlers Cove - Expansive apartment living
03 Dec 2019
Buyers in Noosa’s luxury home market can downsize without sacrificing luxury design credentials with this suite of expansive, home-sized Lumina Residences at Settler’s Cove.
When it comes time to downsize, less space shouldn’t mean a compromise on quality or exclusivity. The Settler’s Cove apartment precinct, located in beautiful Noosa, aims to create a new visual identity for the area and include luxurious finishes that would attract buyers in the luxury home market.
The apartments are intended for owner-occupiers, rather than holiday-makers, so it was important the design and inclusions provide for all the everyday comforts necessary to suit permanent living. As part of a long list of specifications, each apartment is provisioned with a Zip Hydrotap Classic (boiling and chilled water) with a G4 Classic font in chrome which is plumbed to the drain.
In keeping with the uncluttered, elegant approach towards water services, the Zip Water tap eliminates the need for a kettle and water-filter service. This suits the design of the apartments which is upmarket, streamlined and contemporary. With the provision of the standalone HydroTap, a traditional water dispenser in the fridge door is not required, allowing for a fully-integrated joinery door solution, which re-emphasise the seamless, clean lines of the design.
Originally commenced in 2006, the Settler’s Cove precinct features four apartment buildings with the Lumina building the fifth to be added. While plenty of design challenges have been encountered over the years, the developer is able to learn from each experience and utilise this knowledge to ensure the high-quality construction and luxury design for which they are known.
The Lumina Residences combine prestige and privacy to provide owners with a truly luxury lifestyle. With proximity to Hastings Street and Noosa Main Beach, and an easy walk to Noosa Junction cultural precinct, residents enjoy living right in the heart of vibrant Noosa. With 22 large boutique apartments, the Lumina Residences offers 5-Star resort-style living in a residents-only environment.
In addition to the beach, shopping and leisure facilities available within Noosa, residents also enjoy exclusive access to a heated 25-metre infinity-edge pool and heated outdoor spa, as well as the fully-equipped gymnasium. The complex includes a covered entertaining area with built-in bar and communal barbecue.
Privacy is ensured with gated perimeter access controlled by a video intercom, as well as a private jetty for water-taxi access. The complex is pet-friendly, has lift-access and an exclusive manager service on site.
Each apartment is luxuriously-appointed with three-bedrooms and a dedicated office, two living areas, and two car secure parking. Oversized terraces offer a variety of views across the stunning Noosa landscape, from verdant sub-tropical gardens to Noosa Sound or the Hinterland. Each kitchen features Caesarstone benchtops and a butler’s pantry, gourmet Miele appliances and Villeroy & Boch fixtures and fittings. 100% wool carpets and Italian porcelain floor tiles complete this luxury abode.
