The owners of this breezy beachside home originally fell for its location, footsteps from Sunshine Beach, with a sandy track fringed by native trees and flora, leading to the back gate of the large site.
What a difference several decades make as the little beauty morphs into a big sprawling beach retreat, to meet the expectations of a multi-generational family and of course make every surfer's/ beach lover's dream come true.
The simplicity of the house is a tribute to the location, idyllic sub-tropical climate and there's no doubting its integrity. Testament is the front entrance, more a sunroom with Vergola roof shutters and a nod to Bali.
Step inside and be instantly impressed with the varied ceiling heights, heaps of natural light, size of rooms and volumes, while the materials and colour palettes are kept simple, consistent and reference the seaside such as louvres, sandy-coloured tiles and various timbers.
To the right is the hub of the house with generous homely open plan living, and dining spaces seamlessly connecting to a huge covered deck. Steps take you to the back garden and the beach track. The kitchen has bespoke cabinetry with stainless steel splashbacks while the epicentre of family conversations is the granite-topped island bench.
Off to the right is a master suite with robes and the bathroom has a two-person spa bath. Along the hallway in the north wing are three bedrooms, (one is currently used as an office) plus a family-size bathroom.
An external staircase near the front entrance leads to a north-facing self-contained apartment which, with all the greenery around is like a private tree house. Two bedrooms are divided by a breezeway.
The lower level accessed also by stairs from the back landing is another self-contained apartment. There's one bedroom, an undercover deck, easy access to the beach track and abutting is a huge workshop with a work bench and a large shed.
"Relax to the soundtrack of birdsong and waves or with direct access to the beach grab the surfboard, sunscreen and kids and head straight to the sand," extols Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Peter TeWhata who's taking the property to auction on Saturday 4 April 2020.
"This value-packed sure-fire opportunity for the savvy investor is in a quiet street on the southern end of Sunshine Beach. It is within walking distance to vibrant Sunshine Beach village with its numerous nationally known restaurants and bars, plus boutiques and the popular Sunshine Beach Surf Club, which has just undergone a massive rebuild. Famous Hastings Street, Noosa Main Beach and the Noosa National Park are 5-minutes away by car."
