Stunning $1.4m coast mansion gains international interest
DRIZZLING rain couldn't dampen bidders' spirits as they battled for one of Yeppoon's most spectacular beachfront homes over the weekend.
The stunning four-storey mansion on the beaches of Cooee Bay reeled in 15 registered bidders and "half of Yeppoon” waiting eagerly for the $1.4million result.
Ray White sales consultant Russell Breach said interstate buyers who regularly visited the coastal town snapped up the property on Ocean Parade last weekend.
Mr Breach said two final bidders fought for the stunning home at the on-site auction and the new owners planned to regularly visit their new home in the region.
"This is a great result for our region and it just shows true market value is going back up,” he said.
International inquiries from Vanuatu and Europe were among interested local and interstate investors all wanting a piece of the unique home.
The architecturally designed house wowed visitors with its stone bench tops, marble splash backs, Tasmanian Oak floors and breathtaking pool.
A lift connects all levels expanding into open-plan living space and private verandas.
Luxurious technology throughout added an extra touch of class with visual intercoms, iControl system, split system air-conditioners and Vacuum Maid systems.
The landscaped, tropical grounds were complete with an automatic watering system, courtyard with wood fired pizza oven and high fences.
Mr Breach did 66 inspections of the home before auction day and said confidence was slowly growing again in the market.
"Everyone wants to see an improvement in a very tough market for sellers,” he said.
"I've been feeling an improvement in the last nine months and am happy with this result.
"The home is irreplaceable and this sale is just the start of what's to come.”
