Coastal gem hits market for first time in 25 years
A COASTAL paradise dubbed 'The Masterpiece' has hit the Central Queensland property market for the first time in its 25-year existence.
The sprawling Zilzie estate - owned by a well-known Rockhampton family - first hit the market last week for a cool asking price of $2.2 million.
Once lovingly handcrafted by its owner, the 640 sqm, five-bedroom abode combines both the necessities of modernised living within both a grand antique exterior and interior.
Selling agent Kevin Doolan said 10 Coral Close was meticulously designed to take advantage of the exquisite coastal views and breezes - perfect for large families or holiday-makers.
Separated by suspended concrete flooring, the two-levelled dwelling even delivers the illusion of multiple houses in the one.
"The enormity of the house is a massive selling point, it's got heaps of bedrooms, it's really got everything that potential buyers could need or want," he said.
Its lower level hosts two sizeable bedrooms, a large double garage, laundry and bathroom - complemented by a generous backyard and entertainment area.
Upstairs delivers an equally desirable lounge and dining area with 3m elevated roofing, full length veranda and open plan kitchen peering out to oceanfront views.
A master suite, two additional bedrooms and bathroom complete the level.
Pristine views of the Capricorn Coast - complemented by beach access only a stone's throw away - also prove one of many contributors to the multimillion-dollar asking price.
"The family that owns it, they never lived in it full-time, but they went there every Saturday afternoon and would go fishing on Sunday," Mr Doolan said.
"It was almost like a holiday-house. Even though it has an antique exterior, everything on the inside is in mint condition."
The realistic asking price, he added, would also hopefully ensure a speedy sale following two earlier inspections by separate parties.
A Cooee Bay property similar in stature only recently sold for a similar price.
"It's a very private property, it offers a lot of seclusion for families wanting that element," he said.
"I think if anybody would like a big house on the beachfront, then I think there's plenty of chance we could sell it."
The property is viewable only by private inspection, contact Mr Doolan for details.
