A MIX of designer, modern, double storey homes and 1950s-style beach shacks highlights how there is definitely still value in the land on this esplanade.

RAY White Gladstone director Andrew Allen said this street continued to feature regularly in the top five sales because it provided acreage within the inner city.

"It is rare to find such large private blocks within the heart of the city," he said.

With many of the blocks half an acre to an acre, they feature larger modern homes complete with beautifully designed pools and large sheds.
