A five bedroom beach house in one of the Sunshine Coast’s hidden pockets this home faces directly east out to the Pacific Ocean,

The ample property is on a quiet cul-de-sac only 150 metres from the peaceful unpatrolled ocean. Renovated by the current owners, who have held the property for eight years, the home is vault-like in construction with a double brick lower level, suspended concrete slab and hardwood roof frame.  Ray White Caloundra principal Andrew Garland said the home’s elevation above its neighbouring properties gives the house unparalleled ocean views. “Overlooking the shipping channel, you can watch the whales migrating in spring from the living room,” Andrew said.

He also believes the main market for this property was based in the southeast corner of Queensland, mainly Brisbane followed by local Sunshine Coast residents. “These properties are as rare as hens’ teeth because of its elevation so close to the beach,” Andrew said. “Generally houses off the beach have no view other than to look into bush. So this property, just being so close with the same beachfront views as those directly oceanfront is incredibly rare.”

Completing this idyllic beachside home is the half-court tennis court plus plenty of room for outdoor play or a future pool. Watch the turtles hatch each year at Shelly Beach and stroll to the surf, cafes and restaurants at Moffat Beach.

It is only 25 minutes to Maroochydore Airport, and just over an hour to Brisbane International Airport, as well as being a short drive to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and Sunshine Coast University.
