At face value, you might not expect this charming red abode to be tucked away in the Noosa Hinterland. While it’s just five minutes from the markets of Eumundi and 20 minutes to the beaches and cafes of Noosa Heads, once you fill the claw foot bath or dip a toe into the heated concrete water tank swimming pool, you’ll be happy to drop back a gear and stay put. Filled with thrifted finds from Yandina, Pomona and Cooroy, interior designer Rachel Luchetti and her builder husband Gerard Cook have created a cosy country oasis on this slice of acreage in Doonan.
Things we love
“There was much to love about this gorgeous Scandi-style barn: soaks in the outdoor bath, morning cuppas as sunlight steamed through the windows and the wallabies that would visit at dusk. But a standout for me was swimming in that dreamy tank pool followed by G&Ts on the deck with limes we’d bought from the Eumundi Markets. I’d stay again in a heartbeat.”
