McAnally Drive at Sunshine Beach has some spectacular homes … high on the primary sand dunes overlooking the ocean and with the Noosa National Park in the north east.

Father-and-daughter team of Tom and Rebekah Offermann have listed a property in McAnally they describe as having “the ultimate XFactor.’’

With uninterrupted views, chic design and a benchmark in coastal style, 26 McAnally Dve feels like you are on top of the world, Rebekah said.

The first open home was attended by about 80 people. And it’s not hard to see why.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom, two-car house with infinity pool goes to auction Saturday, 4 November, at 11am.

There has been continuing strong interest in Azure, with big numbers through subsequent open homes and nothing but positive feedback on the property.

A multi-award winner by avant-garde Noosa designer Chris Clout, it makes the most of its position with 180-degree views from the national park to Mooloolaba and beyond.

And this outlook can be enjoyed from the mosaic-tiled infinity pool.

An elegant foyer with designer hand-blown crystal droplet chandelier opens to double-storey voids that provide immeasurable spaces in bright white, Italian Carrara marble floors, mirrored surfaces, and walls of glass which open to the crystal-white marble pool terrace.

Included in the bespoke design is an integrated fireplace, hideaway smart television, and Italian 10-candle stainless steel chandelier.

Everything else has been taken care of, from custom furniture and curated artworks to towels by the pool, crockery in the kitchen, and linen on the bed.

The award-winning, creamy-white, stone-topped kitchen comes with bespoke cantilevered island/breakfast bar, mirror splashback, ultra-latest Vzug appliances, also a butler’s pantry and a wall of cabinetry housing a bar, wine fridge and more.

There are five over-sized bedrooms with plush carpet, custom-made bedheads, sumptuous finishes, and designer bed linen.

The super-sized main suite – just like a penthouse – is on the top level, with walk-in robe/dressing room, a stunning bathroom with free-standing stone bathtub and a shower with a panorama window, and views to complement.

Floor-to-ceiling doors open to the private terrace with day bed, garden, triple water feature and a spa.

Downstairs are four large bedrooms; two have ensuites and walk-in robes; two share a bathroom and have built-in robes; and one has a window to the pool underwater. Nearby is a media room, a leisure space and a cellar.

All bathrooms have Thassos lustre marble mosaic tiles, Italian Gessi tapware double LED rainwater showers, and custom-made stone wash planes.


Lone Hand Rd at Eumundi is one of those benchmark precincts in the Noosa hinterland. Running off Eumundi-Range Rd, it is private yet handy to both Eumundi and Cooroy, as well as being an easy drive into Noosa Heads.

At the same time it is within that prized 2km radius of Cooroy Mountain.

Jeanette Catalano and Kess Prior of Hinternoosa are taking a four-bedroom, two-bathroom house with pool on 1ha at 228 Lone Hand Rd to auction on Friday, 17 November.

The meticulously-maintained home with four-car parking and shed is set in park-like grounds with gated entry.

“It is a stunning home,’’ Jeanette said, “ … in one of the highly-sought addresses but it will be affordable.

“The first open house was well attended. A couple of those groups were looking on behalf of friends who are interstate.

“The sellers are wildlife carers and since moving to the area a couple of years ago are finding the demand for what they do is unfortunately increasing.

“So they need more land to release the wildlife from their own property. This is an easier transition once the creatures are better, stronger and in some cases older so they can fend for themselves.

“They are leaving this property in immaculate condition.’’

The spacious, single-level home has plenty of living and lounging spaces that were designed to connect to the outdoors easily.

The heart of the home is the kitchen, equipped with an Ilve gas/electric cooker, expansive Caesarstone top benches, and handy island breakfast bar with waterfall edges.

A cleverly-designed floorplan sees two spacious bedrooms situated at either end of the home, both could be considered a main.

One features a dedicated ensuite and walk-in robe while the other has direct access to the main bathroom that features brushed nickel twin basins and a walk-in shower.

Two more bedrooms at this end of the house have built-in robes.

The home has two split-system, reverse-cycle air-conditioners.

A saltwater free-form pool is set among park-like grounds, and flourishing fruit trees.

There is a storage shed and lock-up shed with a second entrance, secure front fencing and remote-control gated entry

Others features include 24 solar panels, automated garden irrigation system, a bore, and two 60,000-litre rainwater storage systems.


Bask in blue skies and balmy nights this spring, as auction fever teases in Little Cove and Hideaway Island ahead of hitting the high notes for Tom Offermann Real Estate in November.

It’s all things bright and beautiful 10 minutes to Noosa Main Beach at the Nic Hunter-listed 40 Wyuna Dve, Noosaville, a year-round sun-splashed address on Hideaway Island, a much-coveted circular enclave.

Three registered bidders were enamoured with the single-level home, with direct access to the park at the rear; however it was finally secured by a local buyers at the fall of the hammer for $3.5m.


First impressions do count, especially when you are on the doorstep to the main entrance of famous Noosa National Park with its world-recognised Surfing Reserve.

Similarly, Little Cove’s alluring beach and also a few minutes more along the boardwalk to Hastings Street.

To top it all off, the holiday haven apartment 4 in boutique Naousa 11 at 7 Mitti St, Little Cove, listed by Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Luke Chen, has Laguna Bay views.

The campaign predominantly drew interest from Melbourne and Brisbane; there were four registered bidders wishing for the keys to the door on auction day; and it was sold for $1.82m to a Sunshine Coast local.


Tracy Russell at Tom Offermann Real Estate has listed something of a gem along Gympie Tce in Noosaville.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom, one-car apartment at 13 Offshore, 287 Gympie Tce, is right in the heart of the riverfront strip yet with privacy and wide outlook.

Going to auction at 11am Saturday, 18 November, it is facing due north and features a sunny balcony and views to the Noosa River mouth.

With lift access from the secure car park, it would make a great investment or residence, Tracy said.

Those already inspecting have included local investors as well as from New Zealand and Brisbane.

There has been a lot of interest from those who have stayed in the complex before.

The open-plan living space features banks of disappearing doors that open to the extra-roomy undercover terrace, that runs the width of the apartment.

The smart, well-designed C-shaped kitchen comes with creamy stone-topped cabinetry including semi-island breakfast bar and high-end appliances.

Wake up to sun shining on the river and go to sleep with the moon shimmering over it, from the king-size main suite. It also enjoys the benefits of the terrace, walk-through robe and ensuite.

Two bedrooms with built-in robes share a bathroom which doubles as a laundry. There is a separate toilet.

“It is a very well-presented apartment,’’ Tracy said, “with year-round, back-to-back bookings including long stays.’’
