Noosa’s Eastern Beaches continue to attract attention, this time with a Peregian Beach town home featuring 180-degree coastal outlook.

Tracy Russell of Tom Offermann Real Estate is taking the three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at 1/4 Avocet Pde to auction at 11am on Saturday, 17 February.

Breffney is a tightly held complex of four that holds a landmark position in Peregian, directly opposite Beach Access 52.

This is one of two apartments in the complex with the three-bedroom lay-out.

With white water views, this end townhome is in a sunny corner position with a prized north-easterly aspect.

The tri-level design maximises space, elevation, aspect, and outlook – offering three terraces, two on the mid-level (front and rear), and an upper rooftop terrace with its own kitchenette area and loft/multi-purpose space.

“The views can be enjoyed from the mid level as well as the top, ’’ Tracy said. “There is lovely natural light and sea breezes throughout.

“It is a great down-sizer near the beach.

“As well as the owners using it over a number of years, it has been holiday let.

“There is the opportunity for further renovation and change of lay-out.

Interest to date has been Brisbane as well as local.

“Three-bedroom apartments are rare, particularly in Peregian,’’ Tracy said.

“Sized to accommodate a couple or small family with comfort and ease, it is going to truly appeal to a range of buyers.’’

With all the bedrooms and bathrooms on the lower level, the upper two levels are purely focused on relaxation and entertainment; there is a powder room on the mid-level, and there is a sense of space, light, and calm throughout.

Framed by lush tropical gardens; there are no communal amenities, so body corporate fees are kept low.


A substantial home with character and privacy in Doonan will capture the attention of buyers ahead of the auction on Friday, 23 February, at 11am.

Jeanette Catalano and Kess Prior of Hinternoosa are taking the four-bedroom, two-bathroom, three-car house with pool on 5366sq m at 357 Sunrise Rd to the market.

The property simply takes you by surprise, as to the character and the finish.

Immediately on entry you feel like this is something of substance.

The owners took the opportunity to include some timber from the Cairns Wharf in the build, Jeanette said. As a result it is full of interest.

“There has been good inquiry from the start. It is one of those properties that whoever sees it will remember it.

“There’s an incredible warmth and rustic charm to this two-storey home, built by the current owner some 20 years ago to stand the test of time.

“The brief to the draftsman was to make it look ’old’ straight away. It could easily be a chateau somewhere in a French or Italian province.’’

The lay-out sees big living spaces indoors and outside. There is the ideal north/east aspect and filtered views to the Noosa coastline including Laguna Bay, Lake Weyba and the ocean.

First time for sale, the solid rendered block home is spread over two levels.

Terrific height in the ceilings helps to emphasise the spaces, with multiple timber-framed glass French doors opening from all the rooms, bringing in the gentle breezes.

Tiled floors inset with timber framing and the exposed timber beams in the main living area are just some of the features throughout.

The main ensuited bedroom is on ground level, with a walk-in robe and twin pedestal basins that suit the home’s understated style.

There’s another, more intimate, lounge room, wrapped by timber verandahs.

The country-style kitchen is tucked from view and comes with Italian marble-top benches, electric cooking, big farmhouse sink, and a walk-in pantry.

Up the timber stairs are three more bedrooms, a family bathroom with separate shower and bath, plus plenty of linen storage.

An additional large studio room would make an ideal third living area or a work-from-home space as it has it’s own staircase to the outside.

Tasmanian oak timber floors, timber windows and shutters are a real feature upstairs.

Outside, the grounds have soft lawn, established gardens and flowering shrubs that all lead to the magnesium pool.

Other infrastructure includes a separate shed for extra car and boat, workshop and more storage space, 26 solar panels, and solar hot water.


It can be hard to get north-facing sites, especially with views in Doonan.

However, David Berns of David Berns Real Estate has a two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage on 8399sq m at 221 Duke Rd going to auction Saturday, 17 February, at 1pm.

“It is an attraction for anyone wanting to build a new home,’’ he said, “and use as a rental until they decide on the design.’’

“As you could expect, there has been a great response from locals as well as interstate interests.

“It’s a popular pocket.’’

Positioned on a near-level pad, the older-style cottage with dual driveway looks over Noosa Heads as well as Laguna Bay.

There is the opportunity to build a secondary home of 90sq m with as much deck as you want 20m from the home, David said.


What’s not to love about a super cool two-bedroom, two-bathroom beach house and land parcel on your doorstep in Hastings Street with its bevy of boutiques, bars and restaurants, and famous Noosa National Park with its Surfing Reserve a boardwalk stroll away?

Three registered bidders were convinced and battled it out at 12 The Hastings, for the property listed by Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Jesse Stowers, on auction day. It was sold under the hammer for $2.55m to Sydney buyers who, in a few years’ time, wish to design and build their dream freestanding luxury villa.

Not far away, the two-bedroom apartment 8301 at Peppers Noosa Resort, listed by Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Chris Miller was sold at auction for $1.6m.

This is a record sale price for a two-bedroom apartment in the resort and is the 46th property Chris has sold at Peppers since January 2020.

“My clients were thrilled to achieve such a strong sale result. It was the culmination of a busy campaign and followed with competitive bidding between two registered bidders,’’ he said.

“The Brisbane-based buyers can’t wait to enjoy the apartment on their next Noosa family getaway.

“Properties like this have been hard to come by as apartments in the resort with two bedrooms, have been particularly tightly held with only two others selling in the past two and a half years.

“They loved the sunny, northerly aspect and were attracted to the quality of the resort, its first-class facilities, return on investment, also proximity to Hastings Street and Noosa Main Beach.’’


It is quite rare to get an aspect with one neighbour, bushland and golf-course frontage. That is what is on offer at A three-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-car golf-front house at 322/61 Noosa Springs Dve, Noosa Heads.

Marcus Dolby of Harcourts Prestige is marketing the property by negotiation.

“No neighbours look into the property,’’ he said. “It is in an elevated position with east/north-east aspect.’’

Impeccably renovated throughout with golf course outlook, the home features high vaulted ceilings, premium travertine, and oak timber flooring.

The main bedroom is downstairs with natural light and private bushland views.

Seamless indoor-outdoor living captures the breezes while a centrally-positioned kitchen comes with Miele & Neff appliances, gas cooktop, convenient scullery/laundry and panoramic views.

Fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans and remote-controlled gas fireplace, the home has expansive terraces on north-eastern side overlooking the 16th hole.

Inspections are 11.30am-12pm Saturdays and Wednesdays.
