FORMER Aussie tennis ace Pat Cash made a surprise visit to the Sunshine Coast last week, stopping in to check out the latest development by friend and fellow tour champion Mark Kratzmann.
The Kratzmann Group recently commenced construction of The Ivy Picnic Point, a luxury 37-unit complex on the banks of the Maroochy River.
Cash, who regularly holidays at Noosa while commentating during Australia’s summer of tennis, said he was impressed by the level of construction and infrastructure being built in the tourist town.
“I thought Maroochydore was a sleepy little coastal town, so I was quite impressed by the quality of waterside properties close to great beaches, good dining and coffee shops,” Cash said.
Although his real estate portfolio is centred in London, the former Wimbledon champion said it was worth exploring investment opportunities on the Sunshine Coast, given that major capitals such as Sydney and Melbourne had come off their highs.
The tennis pals also visited a number of local hot spots.
To date, 27 of the 37 units at The Ivy Picnic Point have sold, with completion expected later this year.
For every apartment sold at the Ivy at Picnic Point, The Kratzmann Group is building one house in India, in partnership with not-for-profit organisations Habitat for Humanity and B1G1.
