An original Golden oldie beach shack has hit the market for the first time in 40 years and is certain to bring waves of interest from the retro set and renovators alike. Marketed by Golden Beach’s most successful agent and multi Henzells sales awards winner, Iain Simms, the circa 1950s Taylor Avenue property has undergone some renovations whilst still retaining its classic appeal.
Sitting on a generous 607sqm block in a duplex-approved pocket of Golden Beach, the neatly presented home offers multiple living opportunities with upstairs and down featuring kitchen and bathroom facilities, plus a double lock up garage which is also equipped with a bathroom and kitchenette area.
The home has been re-roofed and raised to accommodate 2.5 metre ceilings under the main residence and 2.7 metre ceilings upstairs. Beautiful hardwood floors are waiting to see the light of day, having been covered by carpet for many decades. Capturing fresh sea breezes and ocean glimpses, this once in a lifetime opportunity is within a short walk to the beach, shops and school.
A slice of Golden Beach history, the home originally known as ‘Seaesta’ was purchased by its current owners in 1980 and has been the much loved venue of countless happy holidays and family milestones.
“Homes don’t come up for sale in this section of Golden Beach very often,” says Iain, who is already fielding strong interest from his network of local and Brisbane buyers.
“27 would-be-owners have already attended a midweek open home, with any offers presented to the vendor this Saturday afternoon. There’s still an opportunity to inspect this weekend, so make sure you’re there.”
“The history and charm of this home, not to mention its excellent location and surrounding amenities plus potential future options for this medium density site, will put it high on the list for many buyers.’’
Iain said Golden Beach has continued to grow in strength as a residential hotspot due to its liveability, flat beachfront walking tracks and easy access to excellent amenities including the emerging Pelican Waters marina development.
“Prices have improved by more than 10% in 6 months. Once people move here they don’t want to leave. There are barely 20 homes for sale in Golden Beach, compared to the same time last year when there was 70 or 80, it’s such a tightly held area,’’ he said.
The property will also be available to inspect this Saturday, 21 November 2020 from 11-11:30am.
