Type: House

Ever dreamt of owning a waterfront home with level access to the water’s edge for easy fishing and boating? Well, ’Turtle Point’ has it all, and more.

Rare indeed, are waterfront properties on the island. But even more scarce, are fully-usable sites that offer lush lawn to the shore and all-year outdoor entertainment. From the in-ground pool and infrared sauna, to the private tropical grounds with concrete slipway and natural fishing jetty, you’ll be well-placed for a quick trip to the Gold Coast or a quiet soirée at home.

This three-bedroom, peaceful-blue Hardiplank home on 908m2 certainly ticks a lot of boxes, with scope to create an enormous family estate to be enjoyed for generations. The adjoining council land extends the green fringe and offers a buffer between you and the waters of Canaipa Passage.

Located at the very end of Minjerriba Road, you’ll feel like you’re lost when you arrive at the unassuming entry to 110. Before you, boats dance on the water, birds play in the trees and nature puts on a show as the golden glow from Stradbroke colours the water. Fish jump and turtles raise their heads in a ‘good morning’ welcome.

Complete with granny flat, chook pen, raised veggie beds, water tanks and established gardens, you’re almost self-sufficient. And there’s the on-demand seafood buffet at your feet, with flagstone stairs built to the sandy foreshore for gathering fresh fish, oysters and mussels.

Take a stroll around to appreciate the many secret coves and private sitting areas to enjoy the ever-changing views. Notice the twin garages under the house (one for the boats and jet skis, the other for the cars). Plus, there’s endless dry storage on solid concrete pads, further laundry facilities and a man-cave to tell those tall fishing-tales and hang your rods.

Scale any of the three sets of stairs up to the house, for a better perspective and panoramic 270 degree views. A large entertaining deck spans the eastern-side and provides direct-access to the living area or garages, below. You’re sure to spend many hours with friends and family here, soaking-up the views and relaxing into your new life.

From the front yard, the main entry leads to a hallway with two bedrooms and a family bathroom, then opens-up to the kitchen and living area with a cosy fireplace. Glass all around keeps the views fresh and provides constant entertainment, supplied by nature.

Indoor features to note:

  • Loads of natural light
  • Timber floors throughout
  • High ceilings and over-sized rooms
  • Main bathroom has linen cupboard, open shower, dual-vanity & loo
  • Two Queen-size bedrooms with built-ins & ceiling fans (deck access from bed 2)

If extra space is required, there’s a self-contained flat with concrete floors and large open-plan living, flowing to a great entertaining deck complete with views and living palm-umbrella for shade. The private bedroom has an ensuite with loo, vanity and shower. There’s sliding doors off the bedroom and dining to air the place. A full-size kitchen with pantry and sea-blue laminate cabinetry and benchtops makes meal preparation a joy.

  • If your time in the sun is now, then make sure you get to this property, this weekend!

Tropical hideaways like this go fast and this offering boasts a lifestyle to be envied with its boat ramp and seaside lawns, perfect for garden parties and long lunches. Imagine the kids splashing in the water or catching their first fish, at home. Then racing to the cleaning area to get it on the BBQ, while still salty-fresh. Smell the wood-fire and hear the sizzle of the taut skin as lunch is served. Lemon anyone?

Call Chris McGregor on 0420 555 997 for a private seaside inspection. Be sure to bring a picnic and linger in the magical grounds taking-in the ambiance of your new paradise.
