Tura Beach Real Estate Snapshot

Tura Beach Why live in Tura Beach? History A relative newcomber to the South Coast area, Tura Beach is a purpose-built community with a 72 par 6018-metre coastal golf-course designed by Michael Wolveridge and five times British Open winner Peter Thomson as the centrepiece. This housing estate began in the late seventies, early eighties and has established itself as a solid real estate contender to Merimbula, offering home owners affordable modern style homes with outstanding views. Tura Beach is located five kilometres north of Merimbula and adjacent to the magnificent Bournda National Park, an area rich in local Aboriginal history. Real Estate & Design The older areas of Tura Beach were heavily influenced by the original developer A V Jennings. Much of the Tura area reflects the developers\' style of brick and tile homes. Renovation has begun with first home owners taking advantage of the lower prices – compared to Merimbula – and purchasing the older style homes with a view to renovation and updating. Later land releases in the Dolphin Cove area have proved popular with second and third home owners desiring to build their dream coastal property. Here, in these areas with outstanding views, you will find large modern homes similar to that gracing the shores of the Sydney coastal suburbs. Vacant blocks remain available for sale, although these are being purchased by savvy investors and home owners. Prices are extremely reasonable and city dwellers have recognised the potential of value priced land with views so close to the beach. Shopping Originally serviced by a small community shopping centre, Tura Beach residents in 2010 received a Woolworths shopping complex. This large modern shopping centre is currently home to a Wooloworths Supermarket and Liquor Store, Newsagency, Real Estate Agency, Pharmacy and a Retravision store. Further stores including a bakery are expected to open in the near future. Adjacent to the shopping centre is a Woolworths petrol station. Sports & Fitness Tura Beach is a long stretch of golden sand that just invites long walks by the ocean with or without the family dog. Beach fitness is offered by a number of local fitness enthusiasts for those seeking an activity a little more energetic. Promoting itself as the Golf Course with the million dollar views, Tura Beach Country Club is set on a coastal hill within natural shrubland. It is home to both men\'s and ladies\' golf clubs, men\'s and ladies\' bowling clubs and the Tura Beach Tennis Club. The championship golf course progresses through contrasting landscapes, from coastal holes by the Tasman Sea, manicured fairways through native bushland to water hazards tucked where you would least expect them.
