A NORTH Stradbroke Island unit with spectacular ocean views is for sale, with the owner prepared to give 20 per cent of the sale price to the PA Research Foundation’s Support the Duck, Stop Cancer campaign.
North South Real Estate director Tom Kralikas said similar units had sold for $1.2 million to $1.4 million and 20 per cent would go to charity, no matter what it brought.
He said the three-bedroom, two-bathroom, ground floor villa was part of the Waves Beach House Apartments in the Point Lookout Hotel complex and was a rental property in high demand.
“It’s a really beautiful view from this place,’’ Mr Kralikas said. “About six or seven people live in villas at the complex although this owner chooses to rent his out (when not in use).’’
The unit is part of the Stradbroke Island Beach Hotel and Spa Resort and will be sold at auction on October 22 through www.aidarena.com.au.
AidArena is a not-for-profit organisation that facilitates the sale of items with all or a portion of proceeds going to charities.
Mr Kralikas said a beach buggy also would go with the unit.
“Properties of this calibre and in this location don’t come onto the market very often so this is an opportunity not to be missed,” he said.
“It is a very unique way of selling a property and (can) make a difference to people and their families dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
“...The lucky buyer will be living an unparalleled lifestyle at one of Australia’s finest locations.”
It is understood the owner is one of the aidarena founders.
PA Research Foundation chief executive Simone Plunkett said the foundation was humbled by the generosity.
“It is an incredible gesture on behalf of the owner and we are grateful to be the beneficiary,’’ she said.
The Support the Duck, Stop Cancer campaign is the foundation's signature fundraising event.
It is promoted as Australia’s biggest duck race, with 40,000 yellow rubber ducks tipped into the Brisbane River on Saturday, October 15, with the owner of the first lucky duck to cross the line winning a car.
