One of the last houses on a highly prized beachfront is poised to sell at auction.

No.13 Boolarong Crescent has been offered to the market for the first time in 55 years, representing a stunning and remarkable opportunity for prospective buyers.

It is one of only two houses along the beachfront at Alexandra Headland, which is dotted by luxury apartments and boutique businesses and restaurants.

Marketing agent Kevin Annetts, of Kevin Annetts Property, said the property was ultra-rare and impressive.

“It’s one of the last houses on the beachfront at Alexandra Headland,” he said.

“There’s only two left – that one and the one near the bluff.

No.13 Boolarong Crescent is across the road from a renowned point break.

“So, here is a chance (for prospective buyers) to secure one of the most iconic homes on the Sunshine Coast.”

The property, just 60m from the beach, is in a prized location off Alexandra Parade and just across the road from one of the best surf breaks in the country.

“It’s an incredible headland,” Mr Annetts said.

“There are great waves, a great patrolled beach, a great surf club and easy access to Mooloolaba.

“Alexandra Headland is a gem of the Sunshine Coast, where you can leave the car at home and walk everywhere.”

The 745sqm property boasts uninterrupted north-facing views, with two street frontages. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom, four-car-spaces house has been renovated and extended.

The property has been owned by the same family for more than five decades.

“Interest in the property is phenomenal,” Mr Annetts said.

“There are parties who want to retain it as a residence or holiday home or weekender.

“And it is an exclusive site to build a palatial home.”

“It also has a 12m height limit so could be developed into an exclusive apartment building.”

Mr Annetts said there was significant interest from prospective buyers from around southeast Queensland, rural locations and from interstate.

“So it’s going to be interesting. There will be some strong competition in bidding,” he said.

The home has been renovated and expanded.

Mr Annetts has lived, worked and surfed in the area for most of his life and used to live next door to the property, which remained in the same family for more than five decades.

“I have seen it extended and looked after by the owners,” he said.

“It’s been used as a holiday home and as a residence.

“They (the owners) have bought and sold properties in Alex for years, are very passionate about the area and will still retain some property at Alex.”

The property, via agents Greg Young of Young Property Group and Mr Annetts, will be auctioned on site on Saturday, January 28, at 11am.

The owners can take a swim in the pool or the ocean.
