Rare chance to se­cure haven

The Courier-Mail - Property - - REALESTATE COASTAL & REGIONAL - HANNAH MCDON­ALD

LO­CATED in the coastal hol­i­day lo­ca­tion of Cur­rigee, Banksia is one of 61 free­hold prop­er­ties in the area offering a life­style of re­lax­ation and stun­ning sur­rounds.

With 99 per cent of Cur­rigee a con­ser­va­tion re­serve, the two-storey hard­wood beach house makes for a peace­ful fam­ily get­away or week­end es­cape.

Five bed­rooms and two bath­rooms are spread across the lev­els.

On the lower level, an open­plan kitchen and liv­ing space ex­tends through bi-fold tim­ber doors to front and rear decks.

A cov­ered out­door din­ing area can be used year-round, while an in­door wood burn­ing stove en­sures the res­i­dence is warm and cosy dur­ing the colder months.

The house is a short walk to a small pro­tected har­bour, al­low­ing for easy boat moor­ings, and walk­ing to the surf via a na­ture trail takes about 10 to 15 min­utes.

A small boat is needed to ac­cess Cur­rigee and only res­i­dents hold a ve­hi­cle per­mit to ex­plore the is­land, which comes in handy when seek­ing out the best fish­ing and surf­ing spots. An added bonus is that dogs are per­mit­ted.

Cur­rigee’s ac­ces­si­bil­ity is an­other note­wor­thy fea­ture, be­ing close to the Gold Coast and not too far from the Brisbane CBD.

Banksia is on the mar­ket for the first time in 30 years, with the vast ma­jor­ity of the fur­ni­ture in the res­i­dence forming part of the sale.
