This is an extra-ordinary opportunity and an extra-ordinary location to live in or holiday at, as the Noosa North Shore represents a destination which is hard to find on the planet. Sir Richard Branson, was able to see the beauty in the area, and purchased Makepeace Island just down the other stretch of the river.
To reach this home, one must cross via the vehicular ferry or scoot down by boat on the Noosa river to the jetty outside the front of the property. Off the ferry, the property situated on Frying Pan Track can be reached approximately 10 minutes down the road through the rainforest.
The existing family have owned this property for 21 years and are now returning to Europe to be with family permanently. The architect, Gabriel Poole, designed the home to suit the environment, and it was built by renowned local builder Jurgen Goetzman. It is an unusual, quirky home, as most of Poole's designs are predominantly unique with a maritime theme. There are 3-4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms throughout the entire home. The upstairs is lived in primarily by the owners and guests, with more room downstairs to develop. The house is well split with owners enjoying the front position and guests in a self-contained area at the rear, with separate kitchenette and dining/lounge room. Downstairs, is a blank canvas with two rooms and a bathroom, to house the drop ins!!
From a local perspective this home would make a fabulous beach house for the whole family, inside the bar, and safe enough to swim anytime. The home is private and in a "world on its own", away from the rat race but only 10 minutes to get to it!! High raked ceilings, a warm and engaging living area, with pot belly stove and velux windows opening up to the glorious outside gardens with views to the river and across to Noosa mainland. The breezes and the fact the home faces east, brings in the morning sun and allows these wonderful breezes into the home, not requiring air conditioning!!
The overall views to Noosa are remarkable, as one can see the multi-million dollar properties lining the National Park above Hastings Street, as well as the riverfront homes on Noosa Sound. A short boat trip to Ricky's on the water and cafes and restaurants alongside. This property is for the adventurous soul, who definitely wants to appreciate the lifestyle this property presents. The property is 4555 sq metres and surrounded by native and fruit trees. You will never run out of water with the 3 tanks totalling 60,000 litres.
Vendor expectations now adjusted to look at offers over $2 million, and with the recent sale of the property 3 doors away at $6 million, this is value.
