Nancy Cato home on the market

WEYBA Haven, as the name suggests, is a low-set family home that has a unique vibe being steeped in history as the much loved residence of Noosa's first lady, Nancy Fotheringham Cato.

An Australian writer who published more than 20 historical novels, biographies and volumes of poetry, Nancy Cato is also known for her work campaigning on environmental and conservation issues and became a local icon in the Noosa area of Queensland, and has a park and restaurant named after her.

The Noosa Parks Association made her a life member and an honorary park ranger for her work in conservation.

In 1984, she was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for services to literature and the environment, and she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters by the University of Queensland in 1991.

The park adjoining this unique property is named after her. It is easy to see where some of Nancy's inspiration came from.

The current owners are the second owners of the property. Possibly Noosa's best lifestyle location this iconic spot offers natural beauty, almost solitude and you will be captivated from the moment you walk inside.

It doesn't come much better than being able to boast that you have your own private "cove" with prawning, throwing in a fishing line, crab-pots and kayaking literally on your doorstep. Bask in the delight of shimmering water, gentle river breezes and peaceful serenity.

The home is spacious and comfortable and still maintains the essence of the home that Nancy built.

There are four bedrooms, master with ensuite and walk-in robe whilst the other two bedrooms share a two-way bathroom.

A generous sized kitchen features granite bench-tops and splash-back, pyrolytic oven, smeg cook-top, stainless steel Dishlex dishwasher and pull-out pantry. The home office is at the rear of the home boasting a beautiful water vista.

There are two living areas - formal and family with air-conditioning in the family room and fans throughout the rest of the home.

Step outdoors and this is where the magic begins - fantastic covered outdoor living with electric awning, a sparkling saltwater pool and the picture postcard backdrop of the gorgeous water frontage.

Features are many and include a 3kw solar power system, solar hot water, 3000l rainwater tank and extra storage in the double carport area and roof cavity.

This is a prime investment for the savvy investor.
