Basking in the pleasures of an enviable lifestyle steps away from gorgeous beaches, without paying a king's ransom, IS possible.
Perfectly positioned in the heart of Sunshine Beach and only a short leisurely stroll to restaurants, cafés and bars, these beachside properties seldom come available.
In a town brimful with natural assets and a warm amenable climate, the history of annual compounding capital growth underlines an investment opportunity underpinned by a never ending pool of holiday makers turned to property buyers seeking greener pastures, where land has now become scarce.
Whether serious surfers who are nudged by nature's alarm clock at sunrise, early-bird dog walkers or afternoon sand castle-builders, just open the back gate and sink your toes into the white sand of Sunshine Beach.
From balconies on each of the three levels admire the picture perfect ocean views from Lions Head in the north or swing south to where it seems to stretch to forever. Naturally there's a seamless view from most indoor spaces, thanks to a full complement of picture windows and sliding doors overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
On the side of the residence is a level front entry from prestigious Park Crescent, into the middle level with open-plan living, dining and media spaces all in a neutral palette, and extending to the covered entertaining deck.
The master suite with a walk-in robe, occupies the entire very generous space on the upper level. The views are of course exceptional.
On the lower level are three spacious bedrooms, two have ocean view balconies, plus a family bathroom.
There are polished timber floors throughout and an outdoor shower near the back door to rinse the salt off after a refreshing swim. The joy-of-joys is of course at the rear of the back garden - the direct beach access.
"Interestingly an original council building permit was granted for the residence," explains Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Jesse Stowers. "The height allowance was 12m whereas today a new-build is normally 8m. Zoning allows for a duplex or triplex plus there's always scope to add-on to the existing structure, also install a pool."
Top-end Sunshine Beach properties are currently changing hands in the $6m, $9m, and $18m+ price ranges, and healthy market confidence will continue to underpin growth in values, particularly for investments like this with prime direct beach access. Easy to understand why Sunshine Beach is recognised as one of Queensland's most valuable suburbs.
