A waterfront site bought 19 years ago has paid off for a QLD family, with the tightly held home they built selling for an astounding $7.3m – the state’s highest price this past week.
The $7.3 million deal for the waterfront home in Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast was struck on Thursday and became the highest price a home had sold for in Queensland in the past week, according to CoreLogic records.
The 504 sqm home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and five underground car spaces. Located at 33 Carwoola Crescent, Mooloolaba, it sits on a coveted 860 sqm block.
Agent Loren Wimhurst of Next Property Group – Maroochydore, who sold the home with colleague Richard Scrivener, marketed the home as being in a “first class location”.
Among its charms were two home office, s, a 1500 bottle wine cellar, home theatre, a 22 metre pontoon with deep water access and a boat shed to store kayaks or stand up paddles.
The price of the site has jumped enormously over the years, almost rising from $145,000 in 1984 to $490,000 in 1998, then it surged to $1.55 million in 2002, before the current seller picked it up for $1.77 million later that same year.
The home was marketed as a rare opportunity given ”such tightly held real estate” in the Mooloolaba waterfront zone.
“This luxurious home is designed to take full advantage of the expansive river views, while maintaining privacy and coastal comfort. This is an exceptional opportunity to secure this one-of-a-kind river property,” was how it was described.
