Waking up to a spectacular Coral Sea vista, watching the white-capped waves roll in, and savouring the magic of sunrise, while sitting out on the terrace enjoying morning cuppa, was top of the wish-list for three very keen Brisbane-based registered bidders, at the auction of 18 Pelican St, Peregian Beach, on Saturday.

Listed by Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Jesse Stowers, the double-brick residence has been renovated in recent years but still retains wonderful charm.

It features whitewashed, clerestory-height, timber-lined vaulted ceilings in the main living area, hardwood timber floors throughout, and split-system air-conditioning.

After much spirited bidding auctioneer Gordon Macdonald called “sold” at $3.25m.


Once again locals were on the march to find their special Sunshine Beach property, and attracting all the attention last Saturday was 10 Ross Cres, listed by Tom Offermann Real Estate agents – Michael McComas and Rebekah Offermann.

The stunning five-bedroom, three-bathroom residence in a much-revered street and designed by award-winning architect Shaun Lockyer, to reflect the location near the seaside as well as the Noosa National Park.

It was sold under the hammer for $4.35m.


The Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Lauren Chen’s listing at 14 Burgess Dve, Tewantin, aroused much interest, especially from locals during the campaign and on auction day.

Not surprising, given the four-bedroom, two-bathroom residence is six minutes from the Noosa River, had been beautifully renovated and ready to move into.

Two bidders were keen to make it theirs and it was sold under the hammer to the lucky ones for $1.11m.

The renovated, single-level home is in an elevated position on 686sq m.

It features floating timber floors, stone bench tops, a combined open plan kitchen and living area, plus second living area.


With a sunny, north-easterly aspect, the three-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment 7/279 Weyba Rd, Noosaville, is capturing attention ahead of the auction Saturday, 20 April, at 1pm.

Luke Chen at Tom Offermann Real Estate said interest had been mainly local and from Melbourne.

Leilani apartment 7 enjoys a corner position of the building, across the road to Weyba Creek and a minute’s walk of the Noosa River.

The natural light that streams into the apartment adds to the feeling of space.

This living and dining area opens to an alfresco entertaining terrace more than 3m deep and 5m across.

A private, secure lock-up garage is positioned down one flight of stairs.

Another property Luke is taking to auction is attracting early interest.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at 1/25 Allambi Rise, Noosa Heads, is set down for auction Saturday, 11 May, at 12pm but the highly-sought Little Cove market is proving popular.

The Laguna Bay, Noosa North Shore and Double Island Point views from the north-facing terrace are matched by an interior as fresh and exhilarating as an early morning swim.


Dum, de, de, dum … dum, de, de, dum … dum diddy, da, da, dah … Bonanza!

Remember the theme music to the TV western series, set on the Ponderosa cattle station?

Well Jeanette Catalano and Mario Catalano at Hinternoosa have a three-bedroom, one-bathroom house with pool at 1 Ponderosa Dve, Cooroy, they are taking to auction on Wednesday, 24 April, at 12pm.

Set on 7775sq m, it is not a cattle station like the Ponderosa of TV fame, but still offers plenty of room on the edge of town.

Being a corner block adds to the sense of space, and suggests it was an original statement house when the estate was established.

The single-level home features open-plan living, wrap-around verandahs, big bedrooms and large family bathroom.

A new three-bay shed is fully insulated.

“It’s definitely going to be sold,’’ Jeanette said. “The house is pretty much original but very sound.

“This presents an opportunity to buy at value and renovate … the carpet has already been pulled up ready for polishing the concrete, tiles, or timber flooring.

“There is a 9m by 6m shed, landscaping on northern and southern boundaries, and a waterfall in the pool area.’’

The open for inspections have attracted good crowds and interest – from people looking to renovate and from families.

Inquiry has been mainly local but also from the wider South East Queensland region including Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.

Dating back to the 1980s with many of the original features still intact, the home has plenty of windows and glass doors.

The recently-built three-bay Colorbond shed is fully insulated and has timber windows as well as pedestrian access door.

There are established fruit trees, extra garden sheds and covered parking for further storage needs.


A four-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-car house with pool at 7 McAnally Dve, Sunshine Beach, has sold under the hammer with Century 21 Noosa.

Marketed by Mike Hay and David Conolly, it went to Sydney buyers for $3.2m.

Featuring timber flooring and ceilings, the multi-level home has a large living area opening to a covered all-weather balcony, a sunroom and timber features in the kitchen.

Mike also reports the sale post-action of the four-bedroom, four-bathroom waterfront house at 28 Mossman Ct, Noosa Heads, to Sunshine Coast buyers.

The spacious two-storey home comes with pool and jetty, a selection of living areas, study, lift and air-conditioning.


A bidding frenzy in Noosa Waters at 2 Helm Court on the weekend reached a thrilling climax, captivating an extensive audience with its unexpected turn of events.

In a fast-paced, action-packed auction that saw 23 bids placed, the property was eventually sold for $45,000 more than the reserve price, an outcome that exceeded expectations.

Dean McLure of McLure Prestige hailed the auction as a testament to the effectiveness of the process and the sense of urgency it generated, which played a crucial role in the auction’s success.

Helm Court not only established a new benchmark in pricing for the street but also underscored the intrinsic value and allure of the area, Dean said.

“This event is a testament to the intense emotional and financial investment associated with the pursuit of such residences.

“Furthermore, it has brought to light the dynamic and spirited nature of the marketplace, drawing the attention of both domestic and interstate bidders.’’


Warren Evans at Laguna Real Estate has listed a delightful Queensland-style house at Noosa Heads for auction.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with pool at 12 Allambi Tce is attracting attention ahead of it being presented to the market at 1pm on Saturday, 4 May.

“It’s a beautiful old cottage,’’ Warren said. “There is a real charm about it.

“The home has been with the current owners for 36 years.’’

Positioned on 607sq m on Cooloola Hill, above Noosa Junction, the home blends rustic charm with the comforts of modern-day living.

Ornate features of old-world craftsmanship are on display from the first step of entry.

Polished hardwood floors are in the spacious lounge, dining and kitchen area, complementing the timber-panelled kitchen with pantry, breakfast bar and plenty of bench space.

The wide, cool verandah overlooks the garden that screens the home and the north-facing pool.

Three double bedrooms with built-ins lead off the traditional passageway as separation, including the main with walk-in robe and ensuite done in a timeless style.

The main bathroom has a bath and separate WC, and there is a separate study as well as a screened sunroom.

Ceiling fans and split air-conditioning are inclusions.
