The Tricketts paid $2.25 million for the hinterland range home on an elevated 3.4ha of land, which boasts sweeping views across the Sunshine Coast coastline.

The house itself has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with a separate study with a customised desk and bookshelf and direct access to the veranda.

Check out the hinterland views from the swimming pool!

Surrounded by lush gardens, the home oozes character with its timber floors, cathedral ceilings, French doors, large deck and covered terrace.

There’s a country-style kitchen and lounge with a wood heater and adjacent sitting room.

There are even views from the country-style kitchen.

Wide verandas maximise the view.

There is also a detached loft studio with sleeping space on this level.

The lower level of the home houses private guest accommodation with access to an in-ground pool and pavilion area.

The home is picture perfect and sits on 3.4ha of land.

The house has a warm, homely feel about it.

The property is only a 10-minute drive to Maleny, five minutes to the train station, 20 minutes to Sunshine Coast beaches and less than an hour to the airport.

The Tricketts also own units in Toowong and Noosa Heads and have lived in Seven Hills since 2010.

There’s plenty of room for the kids to play.

The views really are priceless.
