An architectural beauty on elevated blue-chip allotment
YOU have to see this house. It was simple.
Ray White Caloundra's Andrew Garland knew I appreciated good architecture. And he was right.
For sale for the first time in more than 40 years, this stunning home is situated on an elevated blue-chip allotment on the point of Kings Beach headland.
From this prime position it is enjoys panoramic ocean views encompassing Moreton and Bribie Islands, the shipping lane and the Pacific beyond.
It's a '70s icon that shows the benefit of good design. It is as relevant today as it was when designed by Michael Bryce and Associates in 1979.
Designed for the McCafferty family, that has held it since construction, it took out an Australian Architects Association award in 1981.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-car house comes with stunning ocean views from almost every room, suspended concrete construction and fenced lawn area on the 579sq corner site.
There is also the opportunity to redevelop taking advantage of the multi-unit zoning.
Such has been the position and design of the house that Ray White Caloundra has had more than 90 inspections in three weeks.
This interest is from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
"They like the '70s vibe,'' Andrew Garland said.
"It has had structural renovation through the years but has still got the original interior.''
An open fireplace is in the living room on the main level. A wide servery is from the kitchen to the dining area.
Timber louvred shutter-style doors are on the bedroom wardrobes. Wide sliding glass doors open to the balcony with water views.
There is a light well over the stairs leading down to two bedrooms - one is dormitory style while the other is a double bedroom.
Both open out to a fenced lawn area with sea glimpses beyond that.
