Inside The Home of Bree McCann

Noosa dreamin'

When you think of a quintessentially Noosa home, you may think of modern facades, Hampton interiors, and coastal views – and you wouldn’t be wrong – unless you’re talking about model, mama, and Code B founder, Bree McCann’s home.

Tucked away on the edge of the Noosa National Park, this unapologetically gorgeous home bears the authenticity of its weatherboarded beach shack beginnings with a touch of international charm.

Described by Bree as a “beachside oasis” this home is the ultimate labour of love.

Having spent the last few years renovating the space with her husband (and builder) Mitch McCann, the couple have lived and breathed every inch of the renovation – and the striking final result made it all worthwhile.

The pair did just about everything together. “Although I have to admit I haven’t picked up any tools, Mitch and I have designed and planned everything from the tiled travertine bath and timber deck chairs to the tap ware, colours, and cabinetry.”

Keeping most of the original floor plan from the ground level, they then extended out and up. The overall aesthetic of the house is largely inspired by two far-flung corners of the world, Baja, Mexico and Lamu, Kenya.

A tour through and you’ll notice the Swahili and Mexican touches at every glance, all inspired by landscapes, architecture, and culture.

“There’s a certain laidback simplicity that we both love,” says Bree.

Bree’s favourite part of the home is the stunning master bedroom boasting an in-built bed that Mitch rendered. The space was designed to open onto a huge roof deck that looks out to the palms, and it’s truly breathtaking.

Step outside, and you’ll enter Mitch’s favourite area – the outdoor space. Often spending his time swimming with their son Mars, working in the front yard, and sitting by the fire on the roof deck come evening.

“I really believe that your home and the energy you bring to it sets the tone for your life and in many ways also your happiness,” says Bree.

This couldn’t be truer when it comes to Bree’s home – in every corner there is a sense of harmony and joy, reflecting not only the beautiful space but a deeply fulfilling way of life.
