It was a classic auction at 12 Allambi Tce, Noosa Heads, with all of the emotions that come with such an event.

The charming Queensland-style cottage had been in the same family for more than 35 years.

During that time it had been transformed into a touch of Provence, with polished hardwood floors in the lounge, dining and kitchen area, a wide verandah overlooking the garden and a north-facing pool.

Laguna Real Estate’s Warren Evans had four registered bidders for the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house on 607sq m on Cooloola Hill.

“We had a great turn-out,’’ he said, “with over 50 people attending.

“It was a terrific auction.

“Auctioneer Justin Voss agreed we should hold it outside so that people could stand on the verandah while we were on the ground.

“But when we looked inside the house, it was jam-packed with more than 40 people.

“There were people all over the place. We had four registered and the bidding came down to two locals.

“It sold under the hammer at $1.751m to a buyer looking to continue refurbishments as a retirement project.’’

The 95-year-old owner was no longer able to keep up with the maintenance of the property, but she was there with the family.

It provided a wonderful closure for her of a property that must have meant so much, Warren said.

“We opened a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Her family were there with the buyer.

“Contracts manager Penny Choyce was getting everything signed. There had been bread baking in the oven, and you could smell it from the driveway.

“The loaf was cut up, some cheese was produced and as you could imagine one bottle of champagne didn’t go far, so another bottle came out.

“It was a real celebration. The owner signed the contract. What a wonderful event.

“I could not believe it … amazing. And the property has gone to good owners. They will look after it.’’


A brilliant white, three-bedroom, beach-style residence at 99 Upper Hastings St, Little Cove, has sold for $4.275m.

Nestled amid lush greenery of the Noosa National Park on three sides, perched beside a private driveway close to the walkway to Hastings Street and Noosa Main Beach, the house is close to Little Cove Beach and the World Surfing Reserve area.

“It is the only house to have sold in Little Cove in well over a year,” Tom Offermann Real Estate listing agent Chris Miller said, “highlighting how tightly held the location is.

“The last one sold was 74 Upper Hastings Street in January 2023, and that’s not counting 11 Little Cove Road which was vacant land and sold in August 2023.”

Designed by architect Gabriel Poole, the house is on two levels with a second living/media area on the lower level and wrap-around terrace including entry deck.

There are high ceilings throughout, frameless glass panes and louvres, two bathrooms and two car space plus bike storage.

On the upper level, the open-plan living and dining spaces open to an undercover terrace and secluded alfresco space with north-east aspect.

Chris Miller’s history of selling properties with Noosa National Park on the doorstep continues at Peppers Noosa Resort, 5 Morwong Drive, Noosa Heads, with an off-market sale of the ground-floor apartment 9207 in the Pacific building.

It has a rainforest setting, large terrace suitable for entertaining, was a new record for a one-bedroom apartment in the complex.

For Chris, it was sale number 48. But who’s counting?


There has been huge interest in the Peregian Beach property offering dual living on 0.5ha that goes to auction Saturday, 18 May, at 10am.

Zoe Cooke and Michael McComas of Tom Offermann Real Estate have been marketing the property at 72 Annie Dve, that features a six-bedroom, three-bathroom, five-car house with pool.

The appeal has been the location, the size of the block, and the barn-like building that provides extra living or lifestyle options.

“People have been loving the fact that it’s a good-sized property but maintainable,’’ Zoe said.

“This is a really well-known area, so a lot of locals have been looking.’’

This includes those from the beachside wanting space and privacy, those from inland looking for low maintenance living close to the beach.

“They like that it’s single level and nothing to do.

The main interest is from young families, and those wanting dual living or space for the extended family.

The hallway reveals high raked ceilings, and natural light drenching the terrazzo throughout the expansive living areas with wood-burning fireplace and a river stone-fronted bar.

Doors open to an undercover terrace on the south side, while on the north side the indoors melds to a very generous and totally protected terrace. It adds significantly to entertaining options especially with a 10m shimmering pool, fringed by golden cane palms.

The long galley-style kitchen comes with cream stone-topped white two-pac cabinetry including island breakfast bar, walk-in pantry and high-end appliances.

An office is near the entry, a study space has a custom desk, and the laundry has access to a drying area.

The American-style barn comes with a mezzanine, corrugated feature walls, bathroom/laundry, studio, bar/kitchenette plus living, dining and leisure space.

Coming to auction next month with Zoe is a three-bedroom apartment in a small complex at Sunshine Beach with ocean views.


A four-bedroom Noosaville townhome has proven popular, selling prior to auction to interstate buyers, looking for an easy-maintenance property.

Marketed by Nic Hunter of Tom Offermann Real Estate, the townhome with pool at 2/20 Nannygai St was due to go to the market at 11am Saturday, 18 May.

Close to the river, with a north-facing terrace and two-car accommodation, it was perfect for the buyers, Nic said, especially with the amount of internal space it provided.

The free-standing Hampton’s-inspired townhome featured an undercover alfresco terrace with outdoor kitchen and barbecue off the living areas.

The pool with travertine surround was a highlight, situated in the private, north-facing rear garden.

Coming to the market is a five-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-car house with pool at 9 Surfside Ct, Sunshine Beach.

The beautifully-presented property in an elevated position near the beach is already attracting attention ahead of the auction set down for Saturday, 1 June, at 11am.


A five-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-car house, pool, on 5417sq m in Eumundi has been listed for auction in June with Kess Prior of Hinternoosa.

The house at 7 Blueberry Lane has been completely transformed with a stylish renovation.

It features good-sized bedrooms, light-filled living spaces, and picturesque views from every window and door.

Featuring a bespoke kitchen that connects with the outdoor living areas and a resort-style pool in tropical surrounds, there’s high ceilings and parquetry-style timber-look floors to create an atmosphere of a timeless sophistication.

A boardwalk weaves its way through established landscaping and there’s even a seasonal freshwater creek that runs along the bottom boundary.


With limited supply of developable land in the Noosaville industrial and trade showroom markets,Nick Dowling and Jesse Howitt at Colliers International have a 6761sq m holding for sale by expressions of interest.

The campaign for 168 Eumundi Rd, Noosaville, closes at 4pm Wednesday, 22 May.

With a net lettable area of 1914sq m across five free-standing trade showrooms, the fully-leased property has a 107-metre frontage to Eumundi Road.

There is an estimated annual income of $435,775 from the long-standing existing tenants that include PoolWorld, Haymes Paints and Noosa Rugs.

The agents see it as an opportunity to secure a key parcel along Noosa’s main commercial arterial road.
