A dazzling riverside hideaway with the privileged address of Gympie Terrace in the Noosaville 4566 postcode stole the show on auction day, with two registered bidders keen to secure the keys to 177 Gympie Terrace.

Listed by Tom Offerman Real Estate agents Rebekah Offermann and Michael McComas, it was hotly contested and sold under the hammer Saturday for $6.4m – a new house record for the street.

The conditional buyers were obviously disappointed the three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence with lofty ceilings, American oak floors, oversized terrace for alfresco dining, and views coalescing naturally with the abundant beauty of Noosa River was out of their grasps.

The search by the agents for their new home continues.


A riverside belle also attracting immense attention is the Tom Offermann agent Tracy Russell’s listing of 13 Offshore Noosa at 287 Gympie Terrace, Noosaville, which makes its auction debut on Saturday, 11 November.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has an amazing vantage point albeit a generous north-facing terrace with seriously-anytime 180-degree views of the Noosa River mouth, a lustrous blue-green sweep of Noosa North Shore, Noosa River’s Noosaville and Tewantin, and beyond to Mt Tinbeerwah. What’s not to love?


It was an excellent post-auction result for Tom Offermann Real Estate’s Chris Miller for his listing of 25 Aquamarine Circuit, Noosaville, and a back gate opening to green spaces of walking and cycling tracks leading to the Noosa River.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom residence with a totally seamless connection to the north-facing massive undercover alfresco entertaining terrace, and luminescent pool was sold for $2.4m.

“The buyers, relocating from Sydney, are so excited and looking forward to wandering down to the river for their morning coffee,’’ Chris said.


It’s been quite the year in the Noosa hinterland as buyers seek lifestyle and the family benefits of living in a rural community.

Jeanette Catalano of Hinternoosa said that from mid-year there was some hesitancy due to constant interest rate rises. That led to a shortage of properties with fresh listings selling.

Now Jeanette and Mario Catalano have a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-car Queenslander circa 1910 at 18 Miva St, Cooroy, they are taking to auction Friday, 3 November, at 11am.

With heated pool and on 1012sq m, everyone who drives past will fall in love with it, Jeanette said.

“It’s a classic, full of romantic appeal. The first week saw 56 groups through … that’s an incredible response.

“Interest is coming from everywhere, including those locally who have always admired the property and are seriously considering it.

“Some have sold recently and are wishing the auction was this week.

“There are people are on their way up to inspect.’’

With all the character of yesteryear the traditional timber home was built on the fully-serviced town block, and comes with an iconic hip roof as well as white picket fence.

Held for 17 years, wide timber steps lead up to the verandah and an entry framed by an old wisteria vine.

Stunning original features include VJ walls and extra-high timber ceilings, French doors, breezeway details, and superb timber floors. Other qualities are air-conditioning and solar panels.

All bedrooms are spacious – the main with a walk-in robe and a luxury ensuite that opens out to a private deck and tropical garden view.

Upgrades in recent years have seen the remodel of the main bathroom/laundry, and a dramatic increase the size of the family lounge room.

The kitchen connects to the dining area as well as the spacious, covered outdoor deck. It is highlighted by Caesarstone benchtops, soft-close drawers, gas cooking and an electric oven, while the servery connects to the outdoor area.

Split-level outside, the timber deck joins to another great outdoor space complete with high bar and built-in barbecue.

Fenced at the rear, the property features direct access from the lane through a remote-controlled gate. This provides easy access to a double carport, with space for a boat or caravan.

From the back of the property you can see Mt Cooroora, Black Mountain and Cooran Tableland, as well as the top of Cooroy Mountain.

“The property has great height,’’ Jeanette said, “so you don’t have the feeling of being in town, but you are.

“It’s one of the great streets in Cooroy.’’


Hinternoosa’s Kess Prior and Jeanette Catalano have a four-bedroom house on 1ha in 228 Lonehand Rd, Eumundi, scheduled for auction on Friday, 17 November, at 2pm.

“It’s a stunning home on a beautiful 2.5 acres,’’ Jeanette said, “one of the addresses on the range, but it will be affordable.

“It encompasses the hinterland lifestyle, with three bathrooms, pool and shed.’’


Luke Chen of Tom Offermann Real Estate has a rare offering at Little Cove he is taking to auction Saturday, 28 October – a large three-bedroom apartment close to the beach.

With two bathrooms and one car-parking area, 4/7 Mitti St, Noosa Heads, goes to the market at 2pm.

“People are surprised at how much space there is in the living area,’’ Luke said. “It could be your home … the proportions are big enough.’’

There are 12 apartments in the Naousa II complex, which has close proximity to the gates of Noosa National Park gates.

Mitti St provides a lovely treed walk on the fringes of the park.

Interest has included past guests at Naousa II, Luke said.

“People who have known it since the early ’80s and been going there since they were kids.

“Other interest is mainly interstate and people who love Little Cove.’’


Renovated from top to bottom from 2015-2018, a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, house with pool, sheds, on 6717sq m at 211 Eumarella Rd, Weyba Downs, goes to auction Saturday, 4 November, at 1pm.

Heidi Woodman at David Berns Real Estate said those inspecting the property especially like the gardens, how the home is so light and airy, and the location which is very quiet and peaceful.

“Given the quality of the renovations, there is not much that needs doing,’’ Heidi said.

Fully fenced and landscaped, and a short walk to the lake, the immaculately maintained property is aptly named Bush to Beach Retreat. It offers a sense of space usually restricted to country living.

The beautifully-presented house features a huge undercover entertaining deck and saltwater in-ground swimming pool, a 24-panel solar installation, dam, bore and fire pit.

The original home was built in 1995 complete with high raked ceilings and well-proportioned rosewood and teak-framed windows.

The home now boasts a kitchen filled with natural light, stone tops, large pantry, push-close cabinetry, soft-close drawers and a bank of bi-fold windows opening to the outdoor entertaining area.

There is a fireplace, split system air-conditioning and ceiling fans throughout.

As well as the two-bay, steel-framed shed there is a large carport and high-clearance carport for caravan or boat.

Together with a 7m by 4m storage shed plus 4m by 3m shade house, there are raised veggie beds and fruit trees.

A dam offers boardwalk, jetty and an open shelter complete with power and lighting.
