This seaside home ticks boxes you didn’t even know existed.
The 1595sq m north-facing block overlooks Margate Beach and comes with a beautiful character home, five flats for extra income and development approval for four levels of luxury units.
Owners Paul and Julie Borger have called 159 Margate Pde home for the past 25 years and have loved raising their four children across the road from Moreton Bay.
“It’s been just lovely. We’re right across from the beach and we never get tired at looking at the water. It’s always changing and we always get a bit of a breeze,” Mrs Borger said.
“Our children have had a lovely time growing up here and now our grandkids play at the beach across the road.”
Mrs Borger said after many years of hosting guests from around the world, it was now her and her husband’s time to travel.
“We’ve listened to peoples’ stories for years and now it’s our turn to be tourists,” she said.
Mrs Borger said they would be sad to say goodbye to their home but the time was right.
“We did the home up in 2013, so it’s very comfortable,” she said.
The house has VJ walls, stained glass windows and timber floors.
The open-plan living and dining room has ocean views and opens to the front deck and sunroom. The eat-in kitchen has plenty of cupboard space.
The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite and there is a study nook, second bedroom and powder room.
A self-contained studio has a kitchenette and bathroom while a second flat has a kitchen, living and dining area, a bedroom and a bathroom. There are three more units in a separate building.
The property has 60m of ocean-facing frontage and is close to shops, public transport and schools.
The property is being marketed by Rosslyn Kennedy of Gateway Properties.
