The 1224sq m property at 49 Biggs Ave sold for $800,000 on January 29. Marketing agent Tony Bristol of Ray White Bribie Island said buyers were drawn to the big block backing onto the ocean. “Standing in the backyard you can see Moreton Island, the bay and Redcliffe, and the waves are literally crashing onto the rear boundary,” he said. “We had a couple of people who were absolutely in love with the property but just couldn’t bring themselves to sign the contract. “It was their loss though when someone came in with a reasonable offer and the property sold with a 14 day settlement.”More from newsLand grab sees 12 Sandstone Lakes homesites sell in a week21 Jun 2020Tropical haven walking distance from the surf9 Oct 2019 The home looks out over Moreton Bay.
