Create a luxury eco-development on this piece of paradise

By Luke O'Kelly

A SOUTHEAST Queensland home neighbouring Sir Richard Branson’s Makepeace Island Resort has hit the market, and there’s plenty of room to spread out.

The property, on 24.51ha, is at 20-74 Noosa River Drive, Noosa North Shore and has been held by the same owners for more than 30 years, however their situation has changed and they need to sell.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is 20 minutes away from the popular Hastings St restaurants and cafes, and a quick ferry ride from Tewantin.

David and Roslyn Grant purchased the freehold Noosa North Shore property more than 30 years ago after seeing it advertised in a window of the local real estate agency.

“Nothing much has changed there over the years,” Mr Grant said.

“We built the holiday home around 2002 or 2003 and it’s a lovely, peaceful place.”

Mr Grant realised the development potential in the land, which has 180m Noosa River frontage and is located adjacent to Sir Richard Branson’s Makepeace Island resort.

“We’ll miss it greatly,” Mr Grant said.

“You can walk straight across the road and throw a crab pot into the water or fish off the esplanade.

“There’s no noise, despite the proximity to Noosa Marina and Noosaville.”

Ray White — West End selling agents Clive O’Kelly and Ludo Perrier said they had received interest from people keen buy the property as their personal hideaway.

“Land of this quality and size in the heart of one of the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations rarely becomes available,” Mr O’Kelly said.

The auction of 20-74 Noosa River Drive, Noosa North Shore is part of the Ray White

Auction Spectacular event at Brisbane’s Sofitel Hotel on Sunday, October 22.
