An editorial on the story of Barra was recently featured in the Sunshine Coast Daily.
This pristine stretch of beachline is home to nesting turtles and you will often see them swimming close to the cliff. Walk along the boardwalk to Coolum Beach’s restaurants, cafs and shopping and only a mere 9km to the Sunshine Coast Airport yet not in the flight path. Coming here for holidays doesn’t get any easier than this.
Point Arkwright is an exclusive enclave of only 98 beach side houses. It is here you will find Barra’. Evoking a distinct Martha’s Vineyard vibe with a strong yesteryear feel.
This is the ultimate home for entertaining, family gatherings and holidays with plenty of room for guests. One of the Sunshine Coast’s best kept secrets with the most spectacular beach, Barra in Point Arkwright is the dream home you have been waiting for.
Barra can be lived in as a whole or separated into two separate dwellings to accommodate guests and extended family. The spaces are work well as such yet the spaces also work seamlessly together.
The main living room welcomes you in with an open beachy feel and gas fire-place to warm you on the cooler winter nights. This is where the original cottage ends and the new build commences. The kitchen and dining room stretches out from the entrance to create the ultimate U-shaped home with views of the pool from all living rooms and kitchen. The abundance of glass and design seamlessly blends the original with the new. Beautiful concrete floors lead past the laundry and through to the bedroom wing. The master suite is an oasis of serenity and beauty with walk in robe plus extra robes. There are another 2 bedrooms, bathroom and a kids/guest retreat completes the package.

Continue upstairs to the loft area currently home to 4 single beds, a space abundant with natural light and breezes and a room kids dreams are made of.
The entire property is fully fenced and has off street parking for 3 cars and an outdoor shower to rinse off after returning from the beach plus 6.5kw of solar power. This provides a massive saving, you virtually have no power bill.
Everything about this property beckons you to want to stay just a little longer. From the location, the design, the ambient yesteryear vibe. The feel of this home cannot be adequately expressed in words.
