A true beachside sanctuary

IN a long list of properties claiming to be offering unique features, this original Coolum classic can hold a candle to the very best.

In the 1960s when the original owners had the choice of building anywhere they chose this location over all others. Once you set foot onto the property it's easy to see why.

The 852sq m block fronts directly onto Stumers Creek with it's own private jetty for fishing and kayaking. There's stunning wide water views and enough back yard to convince you that the hectic life you normally lead is a long way away.

On top of all this, it's only six houses back from the beach entry and a little further to shops, cafes and restaurants.

This four-bedroom beach house has stood the test of time and undergone many improvements over the decades.

The original home still stands featuring beautiful wood floors, high ceilings and retro fittings. The covered deck connects the main house to the modern pavilion style addition which comprises of a large master bedroom/parents retreat, walk-in robe and ensuite. Oversized windows bring the garden and water views right into the room.

The downstairs section of the home offers a whole extra dimension. A self-contained studio apartment with its own entry, kitchenette and living area make it the ideal guest living quarters, Airbnb or home base business solution. With views across to the garden to the water and everything being so close by it's easy to see how this part of the home served as the ultimate weekender for such a long time.

Even though each owner over the years has injected new life into the property, all works have been done so in such a way that an underlying respect for the original home remains.

The vibe of this grass-roots beach house can be felt as soon as you step onto the land. From the first owner to the last, this home has provided a true beachside sanctuary along with enough summer memories to last a lifetime.
