A gorgeous beachfront property in the quaint town of Kingscliff has been purchased as a holiday home by a Sydney buyer for $3,150,000.
The four-bedroom getaway is as picturesque as they come and located just a matter of steps away from 8 kilometres of beachfront, it is easy to see why the purchaser had their eyes on the prize.
Listing agent Carol Carter, of Sotheby’s International Realty, said: “It’s in a fantastic location and what makes this property stand out is the amazing views of the beach.”
“It’s special,” she said.
The property was listed with a $3.25 million price tag, but under the circumstances, the eventual sale price represented a good result all round.
“The vendors are very happy with the result, they are ex-pats living in Singapore and they’re delighted,” said Ms Carter.
The sale follows a growing trend of buyers from the southern cities opting to purchase a holiday home along the east coast of Australia, as overseas travel shows no signs of returning any time fast.
“There has been a lot of interest from interstate buyers looking for holiday homes at the moment because people are reassessing their lives and lifestyles and they are not going to travel overseas so much,” Ms Carter said.
“Our office on the Gold Coast had its biggest month in years so sales have been very good in the Gold Coast – the market there is very strong,” she said.
But while some areas are blossoming in the current climate, negotiating the everchanging travel restrictions means it is difficult for some prospective buyers to be able to view properties in person.
“The inquiry I have received on many of my properties has been very strong, but for a lot of people their hands are tied to some extent because they can’t always travel to viewings,” said Ms Carter.
