Currimundi is riding the crest of the property wave with a humble 1970s ‘kit home’ selling for $1million cash in the latest stunning result for the southern Sunshine Coast.
Lovingly managed by its original owners for the past 40 years, the character-filled cottage at 30 Currimundi Road set a new record price for the area, one once reserved for homes with water views and private pontoons what seems like only yesterday.
The new owners could not be happier with the purchase of this retro classic. The Brisbane couple will be looking to run their air-conditioning business remotely from their new beach shack before settling into retirement in the suburb they cherished growing up in as a holiday destination.
Henzells' Property Consultant, Eric Murray, a 35-year property veteran on the Sunshine Coast, said the response was overwhelming. “We had 135 people attend the first open home and 14 offers. They were spilling onto the street, I’ve never seen anything like it,’’ he said.
Presented in ‘dead set original’ condition with its brown patterned carpet, lino covered kitchen floor and timber panelled cabinets, the home features four bedrooms, separate family bathroom, study area, lockup double garage and 622sqm fenced yard. You can’t see the ocean from the original Logan modular home, but its position is hard to put a price tag on, just 200m from the patrolled beach, lake and cafes.
“It’s a walk back in time. The buyers loved the old school feel.”
Eric said prices had risen approximately 30% for the region in just over a year as demand for the Sunshine Coast lifestyle continues to soar.
“People from Sydney and Melbourne are escaping the lock downs, and bringing their plans to move to Queensland forward,’’ he said. “Once upon a time lack of jobs was considered a setback, but now with the work-from-home revolution people have realised they can live wherever they want, and where better than the southern Sunshine Coast?” he said.
