Dream 1960s riverfront home hits market as buyers swarm
IT'S the last house in Noosaville's Gympie Tce, if you are coming from Tewantin. And it's the first house from the Hastings St end.
Built in the 1960s and last sold in February 1986 for $150,000, the highset house on a 521sq m corner site is set to go to auction this month with Tom Offermann Real Estate colleagues Lauren Chen and Luke Chen.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom house has four-car parking and the property is zoned multi unit dwelling.
"This is a property in which people have been watching for years,'' Ms Chen said.
"It's on the front row. You just don't get that frontage any more.
"It is a one-way street at that stage with a shared zone in front.
"There are river mouth views, I will not be built out.
"From the inside you look straight out to the water.
"It has attracted an array of absolutely everybody, from hobby developers to those loving the way it is.
"It would suit a duplex, a block of three or stunning riverfront house.
"You can go to three levels as it has 12m build height.''
Mr Chen said there has already been a strong response to the property but also a lot of affection.
"Everybody knows the house,'' he said. "It's the one that a lot have been waiting for.
"It's been in the family for some time and it's a real privilege to act for them.''
The property is estimated to be valued between $2 million and $4 million.
It is part of a clutch of four properties the father-and-daughter colleagues are taking to market on January 17-18.
"There is something for all groups,'' Mr Chen said, "from an entry-price holiday unit to a high-end waterfront house in arguably one of Australia's premier precincts.''
