A slice of Buderim history

One of the great aspects of my role in real estate is hearing the stories of the vendors and the properties they have owned and cherished.

One particular vendor, the owner of 35-37 Townsend Road, provided me with the historical information of his property and I found it so fascinating that I thought I would share it with you.

Fifty years ago Buderim was undergoing a transition from it’s farming origins to a desirable place to live for retirees. There were many streets with large blocks of land on which horses would roam.

Over the years all of these blocks have been subdivided and built on. 35-37 Townsend Road is the last remnant farmhouse block from the days when Buderim was a farming community.

Since it was part of the 80 acres selected in 1870 by William Guy, the surveyor sent by the government to work on farms on Buderim, this land has remained in the Guy family for over 130 years until the present vendor purchased it in 2001.”

Growing up on Buderim, I can remember when many of the newer housing sites were paddocks containing livestock or growing produce. This indication of Buderim’s desirability to live has not abated, with Buderim still being one of the most sought after suburbs on the Sunshine Coast.

35- 37 Townsend Road is for sale by AUCTION this Saturday 3 December at 12:30. Join me to see the latest chapter on this slice of Buderim history.
