One of the first in the area

THIS is your chance to own a piece of the Sunshine Coast's beach shack heritage.

Re-live the classic charm and character of the humble beach shack or take advantage of the development potential on offer.

Located only a 260-metre walk to Point Arkwright lookout with a 24.6-metre street frontage and north east facing back yard, 7 Dewar is a single-level home, built in the late 1950s yet still retains that ageless beach shack vibe.

With three bedrooms, open living area and a traditional north facing sunroom enclosed with glass louvres.

Typical of homes built in this era, the property showcases a range of ageless building materials including timber casement windows, hardwood timber floors covered with linoleum, vintage laminates and the obligatory fibro sheeting.

Many of the homes of this era were low-maintenance, lock-and-leave designs as their primary purpose was a gathering place for friends and family to share a meal and drink after long hot salty days spent relaxing on the beach.

However, you may have to beat away the developers for this Sunshine Coast hottie.

This is one of the first properties in the area. Sitting on a large 685sq m block with nearly 24.6metre frontage, the property has plenty of room for off-street parking and a large yard.

Located only steps from Point Arkwright lookout and Yaroomba surf beach, this is a unique opportunity for an astute buyer.
