Elite streets: The top 5 addresses in Gladstone
OCEANFRONT land and harbour views rule at the top end of the Gladstone region's property market.
Oaks Road, Tannum Sands
THIS street has had continually high prices over the years. When you see the absolute beachfront of many of its homes it is easy to see why.
Set within an older, established area, this location has definitely managed to keep its beauty well while still being well located close to the surf club, esplanade and shops. It is not often that this homes come up for sale -with their exceptional location they are held onto tightly by owners.
Dolphin Terrace, Catalina Heights/Sunderland Heights South Gladstone
WATCH the ships go by in the glistening harbour from many of the double-storey architecturally designed homes within these prestigious estates.
Dolphin Terrace is a quiet cul-de-sac in a convenient central location just minutes from the CBD, schools and shopping centres. From this location it is all about views, views and more gorgeous views.
West Ridge Crescent, West Gladstone
BASED in a central location, this crescent has a wealth of large blocks that LJ Hooker Gladstone sales manager Louisa Lanyon says range from 1300sq m to a whopping 5800sq m.
"West Ridge Crescent offers stunning views of Gladstone as well as exceptional harbour views," she said.
These enormous blocks offer plenty of cool breezes and bushland close to shops, schools and Round Hill Lookout.
Island Esplanade, Boyne Island
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.
Given that it fronts the Boyne River, the views are both tranquil and pleasing to the eye. A stroll or drive through shows how well designed many of the homes are, to take full advantage of these views.
Parksville Drive, New Auckland
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.
