Bed 2 | Bath 2 | Car 1
Sold Price $1,100,000
Poised to be the auction event of the year; this prime 607m2 site in a central Esplanade position directly opposite the sparkling waters of Pumicestone passage is being offered to the market for the very first time in 42 years – zoned medium density residential this is an outstanding development or land-banking opportunity.
A charming post-war beach cottage comprising two bedrooms, two modern bathrooms, pleasant eat-in kitchen, sunroom, lounge, large laundry, covered rear patio, and single lock up garage; is currently on the site and is in liveable, good condition with timber floors and high ceilings – this has been meticulously maintained.
Land-bankers or investors may want to retain site for now and rent out property; it is also a character-filled ‘weekender’ for coastal getaways…the longer you hold onto this, the higher the value.
Developers and builders will be excited about the location and the zoning – Golden Beach is a prime lifestyle destination for not only holiday-makers but permanent sea-changers, and is always in demand, with safe swimming, boating, fishing, and the spectacular aquamarine waters of the passage.
Centrally located along the Esplanade, the glorious vista can never be built out, and amenities such as fabulous parks, playgrounds, cafes, and transport are all within short walking distance; Caloundra CBD with its major retail, entertainment, commercial, sporting/leisure, and medical services is just a 5-minute drive.
The opportunity is truly GOLDEN, Opportunities along this stretch are increasingly limited due to high levels of already developed land – this is a ‘stand out’!

Best Feature: Best beach-side accomodation close to Caloundra
Located to the south of Caloundra and north of Pelican Waters, Golden Beach overlooks the Pumicestone Channel and Bribie Island as Bells Creek forms the southern boundary.
Predominantly an older residential suburb, Golden Beach offers buyers the choice of original 1950's beach cottages, 1960's and 70's vintage brick homes, including newly-developed apartment complexes. Looking for proximity to the coast? Many buyers have found the cost of buying and rebuilding or refurbishing in the older parts of Golden Beach comparable to newer housing developments located further from the coastline. This has seen the revitalisation of older parts of Golden Beach into a more modern beach-side community. Golden Beach also offers some of best beach-side accomodation close to Caloundra CBD with an array of cafe's, local shops, restaurants and widespread parklands.
There’s the powerboat club and boat ramp, Golden Beach tavern, Golden Beach State School, medical centre, bowls clubs and a fabulous little shopping strip with a bakery famous for its lovely lemon buns. While the coffee culture is developing here, you still have your old-style fish and chips and boat and catamaran hire. Sporting clubs are well catered for, with indoor basketball, outdoor netball, AFL and rugby league fields.
