The secret's out. If you're looking for the last original 45-year old cottage built by the one-owner on land purchased in the 60s, when Cooloola Estate was first released, you better be quick.
Properties in the hot spot of Allambi Terrace and environs have been snapped up by savvy investors, families and 'spec' home builders who are transforming the local landscape with substantial designer homes. Not surprising when you consider it's on the highest part of the street and has a central location so close to schools, an 18-hole championship golf course, and just a 15-minute walk to the Noosa River or Hastings Street.
This little beauty may be old but step indoors from the side entrance porch and note it's as neat as a pin. Look at the honey-hued original hardwood floors throughout the lounge room which has a verandah off to the side, the dining area and kitchen, bathroom, plus the three bedrooms. There's a laundry with a few steps into the back garden which has one of the most recognisable Aussie icons, a Hills Hoist.
Land bankers, reno kings and flippers would understand the advantage of having good storage under the house, covered parking and a large block of land with native bird-attracting trees and shrubs.
"The secluded residential estate, on the western side of Noosa Junction is dotted with parks and reserves," explains Tom Offermann Real Estate's Julie Bengtsson.
"Popularity also stems from being near supermarkets, restaurants, bars, cinema, sporting fields, the aquatic centre and having transport links plus, it has the highly desirable cache of a Noosa Heads' postcode.
"If you're in the market for a winner, this is it".
