Array of coastal lifestyle choices fit for a king
WITH the town centre expansion under way, Pelican Waters is evolving into one of the Sunshine Coast’s most desirable destinations to live, work and play.
Known for beautiful waterfront views, gorgeous housing and the golf course precinct, it is claimed to be the Sunshine Coast lifestyle of choice.
It has been a year to remember for the residential community, highlighted by the success of its new waterfront and water-view land at The Quays and major progress being made on the world-class marina and town centre development.
Luxury residential sanctuary the Carlyle Terraces has been another strong performer.
With stage one built, attention has swung to the larger, stage-two terrace homes offering future marina views.
The marina design is well under way, further transforming Pelican Waters into a lifestyle destination in its own right.
Comprising 80–100 wet berths and state-of-the-art dry stack storage for up to 300 vessels, the marina will form the heart of the vibrant new town centre project, featuring a mix of dining, retail and commercial businesses surrounded by a modern mixed-density residential development.
Other highlights for the estate this year include the construction of a childcare centre at the entrance to the future town centre and the official opening of Scribbly Gum Park – an innovative all-ability sensory playground.
Encompassing 810ha of water-based living, Pelican Waters offers a mix of residential land, featuring both waterfront and dry home sites. With larger-style blocks, all with underground services, and the bonus of no traffic lights, this community is the ideal location to raise a family or retire in style.
It is these generous open spaces and the natural environment that sets Pelican Waters apart from all other residential estates.
Built with location in mind, the Pelican Waters town centre and marina is right in the heart of the estate. With Coles, Woolworths, restaurants, cafes, a medical centre, service station, childcare facilities and plenty of parking, it really does offer everything – except the crowds.
Home to Greg Norman’s first world-class residential golf course, Pelican Waters Golf Club is the perfect location for golf enthusiasts. Comprising 6289m of golf course, surrounded by existing landscape, it delivers a challenging golfing terrain, impressive driving range, practice putting and a golf shop.
Continued land development around the town centre has seen median house prices steadily increase from $600,000 in 2014 to $746,000 at April 2018.
Unit prices sit at $489,500 after reaching $515,000 last year. Land prices are $405,000, up from $322,000 last year. Most house sales are in the $600,000–$1 million range, with 37 above that for the past year.
Caloundra City Private School has been a major boost to the area, supplementing Golden Beach State Primary School and Unity College at Caloundra West.
The 810ha holding that comprises Pelican Waters was purchased in 1946 by the Henzell family. Stretching from Golden Beach to Bells Creek, the land was bought for 2000 British pounds.
Roy Henzell shared his grandfather’s vision and made Pelican Waters a reality.
The first land release in 1989 saw development under way and it soon became sought-after real estate. More than 2000 home sites surrounded by man-made canals emerged into an enviable community.
There are 35 different species of flora and fauna nestled in Pelican Waters. The main focus is to keep the native plants in order to retain the suburb’s beauty and encourage wildlife to flourish.
