Boutique teahouse the cream on top of a unique Gold Coast listing

first_img The tea house and cottage at 7 Johns Rd, Mudgeeraba, is set to go under the hammer. TeaTopia has been open for 25 years.There are multiple dining areas, both inside and out, as well as a gift shop filled with treasures and a one-bedroom cottage on the property at 7 Johns Rd, Mudgeeraba. Owner and real estate agent Suzy Niemeyer, of Harcourts Coastal, said it could be sold as a business with everything included, but she was “open to anything”. “We really created a beautiful business, we would be silly not to sell it as a business,” she said. “It’s a great lifestyle business, we have worked 18 months just trying to get it to that.“Whoever buys it won’t have to do anything, it’s all done.” The owners have completely refreshed the property in the past 18 months.Ms Niemeyer purchased the 25-year-old business in 2018 and rebuilt it into a thriving teahouse. It has been put on the market due to ill health. “Because it’s a Mudgeeraba icon and it’s a beautiful Queenslander it was always popular but it was very tired and dated — it was a bit ‘nanna-fied’,” she said. “We pretty much threw everything that was ‘nanna-fied’ and made it more sophisticated, pretty and stylish. “It’s got a certain feel and everything we have done there we have truly done with love.” More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa9 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day ago The Queenslander was built in 1911.
