The Noosa building designer Paul Clout and wife Lizzie are on to their next project.

Having secured the sale of their last luxury build, a luxury beachfront in the gated Beaches estate on the exclusive David Low Way on Sunshine Beach for around $10 million, the couple have paid $1.6 million for a 595 sqm site near the Noosa River.

The block currently homes a 1950s holiday rental which was fetching $500 a night.

But the Clout's have lodged plans for a boutique apartment project dubbed 7 William, which will be made up of two three bedroom apartments over three levels, and a one bedroom studio unit on the ground floor.

There will be parking for five cars, and two private swimming pools, one at the front and one at the rear of the property, both with a lounge deck.

7’s construction phase should begin by mid-2021, with a view to being complete within 12 to 14 months.

"Houses at 7 is something a little different for Noosa", Paul Clout told Urban.

"This is a project that the team at Paul Clout Design has been working on for sometime, luxury but casual lifestyle living was the main driver of the design concept.

"Every detail fixture or fitting has been timelessly considered to give its occupants a feeling of comfortable opulence."

Paperwork lodged with the Noosa council say the design allows for natural light and ventilation to make the most of the prevailing breezes and 2.7m floor to ceiling heights.

"The roof design allows for solar to be provided to ensure ongoing energy requirements are predominantly produced on the site," the paperwork read.

The materials include a mix of lightweight and textured external materials with variation provided through articulation, varied roof forms and large balconies.
