1960s beachside cottage given new lease on life

A 1960s Mudjimba beachside cottage, with its original character and charm survived through major renovations, has gone back onto the market.

The two-bedroom home is a stone's throw from the water at 31 Sundew St, and believed to be one of the first homes built in the suburb.

Maroochy North Shore Realty agent Michael Crichton said it was "very rare" to see original retro homes like this still standing.

"You don't see it very often. When they do come available a lot of people are knocking them down to build beachside mansions," Mr Crichton said.

"I wouldn't like to see that myself, it was good to see this home's character restored.

"Mudjimba is going really well, there was a downturn at the start of the year but we are seeing a lot more interest heading into summer."

Marketing consultant Tony Brown said the structure of the home was retained with the reno, but given a new lease on life to keep its originality.

The home sits on more than 600sq m, with an old fashioned-sized backyard.

Mr Brown said the property had received strong interest from locals, Brisbane bayside suburbs, the Gold Coast and Darling Downs and interstate.

The family are reluctantly selling the home, which is listed for offers more than $660,000.
