A rare, palatial waterfront beauty is about to become someone’s new dream home on the Sunshine Coast and smash the sale price record for its coastal suburb.

The private oasis that is 43 Pelican Waters Boulevard, Pelican Waters, commands attention among other resplendent homes in the coveted area.

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom property sits on the largest waterfront allotment in Pelican Waters at 2492m2.

It has everything grand property wishes are made of, ticking all the boxes for desirable coastal living – space, privacy, convenience and location – with the added bonuses of being north-facing, with absolute water frontage on the widest canal.

Adams & Jones is marketing the property in an Expressions of Interest campaign that closes at 5pm on June 7.

While agent Karen Jones did not wish to pre-empt the success of the campaign, she expects the final sale price to be the talk of the town.

“We certainly expect it to be a record sale for Pelican Waters, deservedly so,” she said.

“So far, the response has been very positive.

“I am organising private inspections by appointment only for this home.

“Given the size of the land and all the extras, some of the private inspections I have had so far have taken an hour-and-a-half.”


Lifestyle and luxury are taken to the next level. This is more like your own tropical resort complete with enviable recreation facilities.

The colossal in-ground infinity pool is joined by a full-size flood-lit tennis court and mini putting green.

This boat owner’s paradise also has about a 49m frontage with private pontoon to the ocean-access canal to glide around pristine Pumicestone Passage or cruise out into the deep blue.

The water-fun possibilities are endless for those with SUPs, jet skis, kayaks or surfboards.

And there’s room for four cars plus a motorhome, or boats and trailers.

Unwind beneath the canopy of the trees, sit back and take in the breathtaking water views across the canal, dine in a romantic setting at the water’s edge or reconnect with loved ones in the large outdoor living zone complete with weatherproof roofing.


But the elegantly remodelled and beautifully styled, two-storey residence also offers grandly proportioned interiors behind the gated entrance and long and winding walkway to the front portico.

What lies behind the front gates.

A statement chandelier over the central table is an eye-catching addition to the entertainer’s kitchen that also boasts stunning engineered stone, integrated appliances and expansive storage solutions, including a separate bar area.

While all five bedrooms are well-proportioned, beautifully appointed and offer French doors to private balconies with sparkling water views or a private outlook over the estate, the master retreat is a stand-out in comfort.

And its luxurious ensuite has a free-standing bath to soothe weary souls that looks out to the waterfront landscape.

French Oak flooring, luxe finishes and inviting spaces to relax and entertain help define the home’s immediate sense of warmth and comfort.

The master retreat’s ensuite.

The separate air-conditioned office with independent access is ideal for a home business, with its own shady outdoor lounging area and meeting table.

Other features include: ducted air-conditioning, vacuum system, security and intercom.

“For me, I love the space and privacy provided by all the established trees and gardens,” Ms Jones said.

“It really makes it feel like an oasis on the water.

“Although you are walking distance to Golden Beach and Pelican Waters shopping centre and the coming marina, it doesn’t feel like you are in the suburbs.

“It is very rare to have 2492m2 of north-facing waterfront. That is very hard to find anywhere on the Sunshine Coast.

“The home was designed by Trevor Reitsma and the current owners have done a beautiful renovation, keeping true to the style and grandeur of the home but giving it a lovely relaxed, coastal vibe.”

The tasteful elegance of the entertainer’s kitchen.

Ms Jones said the current owners previously were living in the hinterland on more than 40ha (100 acres), and while they had “loved their time” on the largest waterfront block in Pelican Waters, they wanted to return to acreage living.

In their time by the water, they had seen the potential of the “faded beauty” they had purchased and completely remodelled and renovated the property to their own grand designs with luxury finishes.

With the property’s immaculate presentation, interest had been strong from prospective buyers.

“We have had an ex-pat with a family very interested, as well as a couple returning from working in the US for 20 years, families from Brisbane and families from other parts of the Sunshine Coast,” Ms Jones said.


“The size of the home and the rare block size have both been very important aspects of the buyers’ interest so far.

“It will be very interesting to see who the lucky buyers will be.”
