Thomas Muster, the former Austrian tennis champion, has spent $6.6 million on adjoining Noosa riverfront homes.

The dearer of the two cost $3.6 million on Weyba Creek which was less than its prior $3.75 million paid some 10 years ago. Both blocks were 620 square metres with early 1980s homes. 

Fender Katsalidis returns regularly to the Queensland town because his former wife, Jo Beth Taylor, the former Australia's Funniest Home Videos host, resides on the Sunshine Coast with their son.

The 35-hectare hinterland property, Cintamani, was Muster's first house in 1994 as a home away from his then Monte Carlo base, which was sold in 2002 for $7.6 million to Collection House founder Stephen Walker. 

It was in 2006 when Fender Katsalidis bought back into the Noosa property market spending $3.5 million on one of six luxury houses on the steep slopes of Noosa Hill. Set in the Viridian Noosa complex, overlooking Noosa Heads and Laguna Bay, the house is virtually wrapped around the trees.

Viridian Noosa was a joint venture between Leighton Properties and Ariadne Australia, designed by Noosa resident John Mainwaring. The long-time owner of the then 19.8-hectare banana plantation ended up in the High Court after a decade-long battle with Noosa Shire Council, which constrained the land's development potential.

His latest acquisition was a single level absolute waterfront residence on the sandy shoreline of the Noosa River with over twenty metres of sandy beach offered a $4.25 million by Eric Seetoo at Tom Offermann Real Estate.

The single level absolute waterfront residence enjoys a "dreamlike" position right on the Noosa River. Over twenty metre of sandy beach, a serene outlook to the wooded slopes of Noosa Hill and not a property in your line of sight across the water; this beautifully presented waterfront retreat will appeal to investors and families with an eye on future development in such a wonderful location. 

Brightly flowering azalea, cycad, Poinciana and frangipani frame the security breezeway entry.

The wide arc of sandy beach accommodates the paddle craft on the tide and a grove of Alexandra palm provide a perfect spot to string a hammock.

Property Observer gleans Muster firsbought on the riverfront paying $2.8 million in 2013.

The former "King of Clay" beat career-threatening injuries at the age of 21 to become Austria's first grand slam tennis champion and its first world No. 1 player.
