Beachside Regions To Burst Through $1 Million Median

Queensland’s coastal suburbs are on the up.

Queensland’s Gold Coast, Sunshine and the upper reaches of NSW’s coast, the Richmond-Tweed region inclusive of Byron Bay are predicted to pass the $1 million median price for a detached house by March according to real estate agency, Ray White.

Ray White’s chief economist, Nerida Conisbee, said all three areas were strong performers last year, rising in price between 35% and 47% — an upward trend that is estimated to continue in 2022.

Key drivers for the price rise include increased interstate migration from Sydney and Melbourne, which is likely to continue on the Gold and Sunshine Coast after the Queensland border re-opened.

The move to work-from-home is also driving local Brisbane residents to move towards living in their traditionally owned holiday houses full time.

According to Ms Conisbee, the Gold Coast, in particular, was in a period of change.

“Historically, it’s been up and down, a bit like Perth, but it’s grown and become more of a mixed economy, not so reliant on tourism, and is starting to show more stability with pricing,” she explained.

Ray White cites CoreLogic figures recorded to the end of November, 2021 detail the median detached home price as $939,000 on the Gold Coast, $956,000 in the Richmond-Tweed region and $968,000 on the Sunshine Coast.

Based on an average monthly price growth of 2%, Ms Conisbee expects all will exceed a $1 million median price for houses by March.

By comparison, the Sydney median for houses is $1.38 million, while Canberra reached $1.07 million late last year, as did the Illawarra region where the median is now $1.01 million. Melbourne’s median is $980,000.

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
