Seeking a little piece of heaven?

Renowned singer-songwriter Bruce Woodley of legendary Australian folk pop group The Seekers says this stunning Eudlo property is where he spent many happy hours penning future hits and that it is one of the most beautiful places he’s ever seen. Now, it’s up for sale.

Sitting on the deck 100 metres above sea level and soaking in the breathtaking views of the Sunshine Coast, The Seekers founding member Bruce Woodley would strum on the guitar and pen future hits.

The renowned singer-songwriter fell in love with the Eudlo property the moment his son Dan discovered it following a trip the Chenrezig Institute, the largest Buddhist teaching facility in Australia.

The tranquillity and uniqueness of the property, which consists of four bungalow structures that take in unobstructed views all the way to the Pacific Ocean from Mount Coolum to Caloundra, was an opportunity they did not want to miss.

Woodley, most famously known for the song I Am Australian, says they built and operated a boutique business in Bali for nine years and Dan had managed it before coming back to Australia.

They felt the Balinese feel was the perfect fit for the Eudlo property and Dan spent countless hours renovating and landscaping.

“It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen,” Woodley says.

“I’ve been up there four or five times a year to take a break and hang out with Dan and I just love the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. I think I like it better than the coastal areas to be honest. It has a real ambience.

“Dan created the place that it is today, to bring it up to the standard it is now, by building decks and walkways and doing extensive landscaping, it’s absolutely pristine and potential buyers have nothing to spend on it at all.”

The new gantry-style balconies and walkways connect the buildings to one another. 

Three of the four bungalows are designed as private bedrooms and each includes high ceilings and ensuites, along with large walk-in robe to the rear with sleeping, living and ample balcony space to the front. 

The main structure has open plan living and kitchen with timber cabinetry and gas cooking along with a wood fired combustion heater for those chilly winter nights, plus air conditioning in the summer.

Woodley says he has many fond memories of spending time outside on the deck, enjoying “one of those views that goes forever over the trees.”

“On a number of occasions, I have taken my instruments up there and sat on the porch and got creative and written some music or some songs,” he says.

“None of them have been recorded as yet, but that’s not to say that they won’t be.”

Despite his clear fondness for the property, Woodley says it is time to sell due to family reasons and he hopes another family or business owner will get as much pleasure out of the little slice of paradise as he has.

Harcourts agent Justin Boyanton says the property has attracted a lot of attention.

“The property is absolutely stunning. The unique construction, architecturally designed gardens and incredible views combine to make this home something truly special. You won’t find anything else like this,” he says.

“The bungalow design allows the property to be occupied as a family home or as a retreat style B&B. If operated in a commercial sense, the property would no doubt draw great interest from visitors to the Chenrezig Buddhist centre, which is located within easy walking distance.”
