Dawn Fraser’s home could earn her more than when she was an Olympian

Dawn Fraser’s home could earn her more than when she was an Olympian

Aussie swimming legend Dawn Fraser could earn more on the sale of her Sunshine Coast investment property than she did throughout the entirety of her athletic career.

The 83-year-old has listed her darling Noosa Heads home more than two decades after she bought it for $345,000.

Fraser is regarded as one of Australia’s greatest swimmers and strongest Olympian and is hoping to fetch $1 million for her four-bedroom, three-bathroom investment property.

The charming home sits on a 599 sqm block and overlooks the pool and a park across the street.

Sam Plummer of Noosa Estate Agents sold the property to Fraser back in 2001 and now has the property under her arm again.

The agent says the Noosa market was “unprecedented.”

“It’s a market nobody, I believe, has seen before here,” she said.

“I’ve never seen this in my time, in 20 years.”

She is currently renting out the property for $600 a week, but the lease is due to expire in October.

Ms Plummer said no improvements had been made on the property since Fraser first bought it, but still it has gained attractive offers.

“It’s a great time to sell and to capitalise on this current market,” Ms Plummer said.

“It’s attracting a fair bit of attention. We’re looking at offers in excess of $1 million.

“We’re selling it as a home to either renovate and live in yourself, or you may want to knock it down and build your dream home.”
