Rare opportunity - Half acre on Olympus Cres, Arcadia

Rarely do properties on tightly held Olympus Crescent come up for sale and this is a special one: an original beach shack on 2186m2 just 250m from Alma Bay. 

'Te Nikau' is one of the oldest homes on the island, with photos dating it back as far as the 1920s and character features such as timber louvres and colourful casement windows. The owners over the years track back through seafarers, artists and nature lovers, and the home shows this through their various contributions, improvements and additions. Lots of Knick-knacks cover the walls and shelves, creating a “shacky–chic” feel, blended with the creature comforts of a fully equipped stainless steel kitchen, wine fridge, Weber gas BBQ and flyscreens to all doors and windows. 

The classic queenslander-style sees a large central room, a great bunk room for all the kids, with the 4 sides around it all open-plan living, kitchen, dining and sleeping quarters. 

You'll spend most of your time outdoors though - go for a swim or snorkel at beautiful Alma Bay and then come back for a family gathering on the large patio or deck, enjoying the visiting wildlife courtesy of the neighbouring National Park. A seasonal creek flows through the large bush block, with an ornamental bridge on the scenic pathway access from the beach, whilst there is also access to park vehicles near the house just off Armand Way.  

A special property that holds a place in the hearts of many, looking for its new custodians to add their personal touch to it. 

NB: the property is NOT listed on the local heritage register.

Settlement not before August to allow the family to visit and say their goodbyes.

The property is currently a holiday rental so inspections must be arranged by appointment only around guest bookings. 

Council rates approx $4500 p.a. including water.
