8/2 Duroon Court, Ocean Shores


Ripe for a makeover!

The unit has its original kitchen, bathroom and carpet but is light and bright with generous sized rooms. Once the makeover is complete you will own a fabulous unit that is elevated and positioned in a quiet street.

Keep your towel, board or kayak in the car because it is only 1.5 km to the beach and river.  It is 200m to the shopping village and less than a 5 minute drive to Brunswick Heads. With a potential rental return of $300+ per week, what’s not to love?  It is the perfect investment or first home.
