Sassy river house for sandy feet and salty air


Elusive joy is the domain of the fortunate when the location really is second-to-none, so close to the Noosa River foreshore.

There’s a boardwalk for watching delightful sunsets and activity on the glistening wide waterway, maybe casting a rod for flathead and whiting. Walk a few steps to the left off the quiet one-way William Street where it joins Gympie Terrace, often referred to as Little Eat Street, and myriad well-known restaurants, cafes, bars, and take-outs beckon.

Complementing the location, only 80-metres to the river’s edge is a sassy beach-style, three-level north-facing townhouse, more a home, in a boutique complex with a pool.

In the entry way, revel in the relaxed ambience, and how the over-generous living spaces with pale floor tiles, and a coastal-inspired aesthetic are evocative of sandy feet and salty air, also totally bathed in natural light. Indoors morphs into a sunny-bright undercover terrace thanks to a wall of slide-away, white plantation shutters.

The ample dining area is commensurate with the sizeable U-shaped kitchen, preparation bench/breakfast bar, pantry and storage plus all the whizz-bang appliances needed by a keen cook.

On the south side is another terrace off the living space, also an office/study and a powder room.

The upper level is devoted to dream time. In the north wing the master suite with walk-in robe and ensuite accesses an undercover terrace, which suggests morning stretches followed by tea. Same options for the second bedroom, which like the third has built-in robes and share a bathroom.

On the ground level is a fourth bedroom. It opens out to a pebbly courtyard with dracaenas fringing the fence line, plus a drying area as an adjunct to the laundry.

For downsizers and change of lifestyle seekers, forget mowers, blowers and weeding, this is a rare and exciting chance to secure a highly desirable rarity so close to the riverfront. Leave the car in the garage and walk or catch the ferry to Hastings Street and Noosa Main Beach, stroll to the innumerable restaurant and café delights, hire a pontoon boat on Gympie Terrace, or cycle to the Noosa National Park and experience world-class surf breaks. A free bus on weekends ends your parking problem.

There are jetties along the Noosa River to catch the ferry also leisure craft hire companies, shallow waters for safe swimming, an adjoining parkland dotted with gazebos, also dedicated walkways for four-footers and families.

“With neighbouring high-end apartments and residences recently completed and gentrifying the street,“ enthuses Tom Offermann Real Estate agent Jill Goode, “this well-presented apartment is in an even more sought-after Noosaville hot spot.

“However, whatever the reason you own or aspire to owning this large townhouse , the investment future is secure because there will be no end to other people wanting to invest there.“
