Riverside properties have continued in the spotlight this week with some interesting listings and sales.

A five-bedroom, three-bathroom riverside house with pool at 135 Gympie Tce, Noosaville, goes to auction Saturday, 9 March, at 1pm.

Roark Walsh of Tom Offermann Real Estate said the property was out of the box in more ways than one.

The industrial-inspired residence pays tribute to the location while offering a sense of sensuality and warmth.

“The design brief for Georgina Price was to create an industrial design but at the same time for it to be eco friendly,’’ Roark said.

The result is lots of different textures and a floorplan to suit the long, 642sq m block yet retain the river outlook.

Studios have been added within the interior of the design so as not to look out of place.

“Everything flows,’’ Roark said. “It’s a spacious house with a rear studio that could be turned into a summer house. The lap pool is private and good sized.

“There are a lot of Brisbane buyers at the moment while locals have seen it and been interested to go through it.

“This is a highly sought-after pocket of Noosaville.“

The house features light-filled living and dining areas with beautiful French oak floors and a seamless connection to the north-facing alfresco terrace and the river views.

There is a polished concrete entry, high-ceilinged hallway and stairwell.

The galley kitchen is highlighted by stone-topped cabinetry including the long, wide island breakfast bar and bench with stainless steel splashback, an antique pendant and high-end appliances including a six-burner gas cooktop.

East-side on this level is the premier bedroom suite with custom cabinetry, wispy silver-grey sheers and views over the pool, plus walk-in robe and

white tiled ensuite with stone-topped timber cabinetry.

In addition, there’s a powder room and a mezzanine walkway leads to a specially designed wing with an office, bedroom with built-in robe plus a bathroom.

There are five bedrooms in total. Downstairs are three with built-in robes and a desk as well as a lounge/leisure space. The bright white tiled bathroom with stone-topped cabinetry has a free-standing bathtub.


More than 100 people attended the auction of 7 Robert St, Noosaville, on Saturday, listed by Tom Offermann Real Estate agents Lauren Chen and Luke Chen.

Not surprising given it attracted much media attention and the impressive substantial five-bedroom, four-bathroom residence boasted a privileged address several fishing rod lengths away from Gympie Terrace.

Features included a bold crystal chandelier above the long timber dining table, a beam rescued from the Yamba Bridge, north-facing alfresco terrace with a bar to appreciate the views of the Noosa River.

Beyond the pool is a dedicated sound-proofed space with a skate ramp.

The location and the outlook attracted three very keen registered bidders all from Queensland and it was sold under the hammer for $4.3m to a family from Bargara. The vendors were just as thrilled with the result.


Richardson & Wrench Noosa have announced the successful sale of 24 Noosa Parade, Noosa Heads – a five-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-car riverfront house that achieved $16.5m.

Marketed by Gillian McCauley, the property captured the hearts of buyers near and far, going to an overseas buyer without them even setting eyes on it in person.

The property, cherished as a family home since its construction in 1987, boasts an unparalleled location and north-facing river outlook.

Bi-fold doors open to the landscaped outdoor area.

The property presented a grand and comfortable lifestyle experience in one of the most sought-after locations in Noosa, Gillian said.

This is the second most recent high-end sale by Gillian on Noosa Parade.

The previous sale was a Queensland record for the last financial year at 12 Noosa Pde for $27million.


Interested parties in a penthouse apartment at Sunshine Beach have been flying up from interstate to view the property ahead of Saturday’s auction.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-car penthouse apartment at 5/20 Henderson St goes to the market at 11am, 9 March, with Jesse Stowers of Tom Offermann Real Estate.

“It’s exceptional,’’ Jesse said. “There are a lot of apartments of similar size but to be top floor and single level with such views is more of a rarity.

“Especially when there is a lift, two-car garaging and just five apartments in the complex.

“Hilltop Villas is opposite the shops. It’s a substantial building and even better once inside.

“There has been a lot of good interest throughout the campaign. The property has been well received by the market.’’

The apartment enjoys an eagle’s-eye view from northern Sunshine Beach and the national park and beyond 180 degrees across the ocean.

There are well-appointed living and dining areas, and a fresh blue, white and natural decor to reflect the environs.

Tall walls of glass allow the seamless transition from indoors out, to two of four undercover terraces.

The galley-style kitchen comes with stone-topped cabinetry including the island breakfast bar, and high-end appliances.

The premier bedroom suite allows you to wake to waves washing the foreshore. There are postcard views from bed or one of two north-east-facing terraces, and from the free-standing deep bathtub in the lavish ensuite.

Two additional bedrooms come with built-in robes. One has access to a north-east terrace also with sea views, one has an ensuite and one has a shared bathroom with adjoining laundry.

All bathrooms have natural stone-topped white cabinetry. Further features include a double lock-up garage and storeroom.


A near-new home at Noosa Heads featuring the finest finishes and fixtures is set for auction on Saturday, 16 March.

The four-bedroom house at 8 Samara Pl is being taken to the market at 10am by Sharon McLure of The McLure Group.

On 570sq m, the house features elegant design and sophisticated layout, enhanced by wide hallways and an impressive staircase.

Equipped with state-of-the-art ducted air-conditioning, the house is within five minutes walk to Noosa Junction.

The home boasts expansive, light-filled spaces enhanced by 2.75m high ceilings.

The size of the allotment offers the potential for a pool.
