Look at this dear little beach shack, right on the beach at Surfers Paradise.
A little nook of yesteryear amongst the monoliths.
I could see no signs of life so I scampered up into the dunes to get a better shot.
So unspoilt. So yesterday.
It had an immaculate little front lawn and a sweet little rock garden.
Just enough for 'pretty'... no fancy reno... just so perfectly simple.
I wonder what this piece of dirt is worth? They are sitting on a gold mine. My boy went to a rather posh birthday party a few years back, in a school friend's holiday house on Hedges Ave, which was worth $10 million just before they went bust and the bank sold it for $5 million (the birthday kid sat and played computer games and ignored his party guests the whole time....it was the most amazingly ridiculous scenario... I digress...back to property prices... ). I hear Palazzo Versace is on the market for only $80 million. That's really not much.... in the big scheme of luxury hotels. I mean, that's only 10 times what that house on Hedges was originally worth. The Gold Coast has taken a battering in property values. This little one? 3 million? land value... or am I way off? Seriously curious. Maybe 30 of us could pitch in and buy a 'Blogger's Retreat'? ...if they'd sell it to us.
I could so live there. Right there.... and blog from that deck.
It's a public holiday here today. Once I have warmed up my fingers, from my cool-ish morning run, I am doing the world's longest violin practice. Our concerts are in 3 weeks time and the vocal leads are practising with the orchestra tonight. I need to work on the ugly bits... the 'bleeding ear' bits.
Happy Monday! Have a great day!
