Race season on the Whitsundays is well and truly here, with the 2019 Airlie Beach Race Week: Festival of Sailing and the Hamilton Island Race Week both taking place from now through until 24th August. However, not all the action takes place on the water. According to real estate agent, Carol Carter, the property market is also a focus for the national and international visitors who flock to the North Queensland dream destination for the annual A-list events.

Ms Carter, part of the prestigious Sotheby’s International Realty group, said Hamilton Island Race Week brings a discerning clientele to the area, many of whom look to make a real estate investment in the region. “Race Week sees more and more people falling in love with the area,” Ms Carter said. “Many of these are looking at investing in a holiday home or moving to the area.”
Ms Carter, who handles many of the region’s most celebrated and significant properties, said there are some stunning homes on the market during Race Week 2019.

“The Forest Lane home is a perfect example of why people want to move to The Whitsundays,” Ms Carter said. It is a magnificent home that is sophisticated yet practical, high-end yet understated, and views that are truly unsurpassed. “Cliff and his wife Freya have created an outstanding home, and we know there will be a lot of interest in it,”Ms Carter said.

The covered terrace with BBQ kitchen is perfect for outdoor entertaining and is enhanced by a stunning mosaic tiled pool. The home is a place to be enjoyed, whether entertaining guests, or enjoying some quiet time admiring the stunning sunset with a glass of wine. “Waking up here is really something The view alone makes the simple act of sitting on the deck in the mornings a wonderful experience,” said home owner, Cliff.

Ms Carter said she expects the home to generate strong interest during Race Week. “It’s a beautiful, well-designed, and solidly constructed home in a stunning location with views you simply won’t find anywhere else.”
