Ray Martin lists his four-bedroom holiday home on the Sunshine Coast

Former 60 Minutes presenter Ray Martin has listed his family’s holiday home on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast after owning it for more than two decades.

The veteran journalist, 76, bought the property in 2001 for $250,000 and it could sell for up to $3million if local house prices are anything to go by, reports Domain.

The two-level home, located in the exclusive The Lakes estate of Mount Coolum, has four spacious bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathrooms.

There is also a family room and cinema, ideal for entertaining.

A small courtyard in the middle of the property brings the outdoors in, while a large terrace at the back overlooks a picturesque lake.

Ray said his family had made many memories during their time at the holiday home.

‘The minute we open our front door, we hit the shorts and the T-shirts – and the blood pressure drops to chilled,’ he told Domain.  

He and his wife, Dianne, are selling the property because they plan to spend more time in Sydney with their family.

Ray noted that Covid-19 lockdowns had changed their family circumstances, especially now he and Dianne are grandparents.

He added: ‘So, for a myriad of good reasons, we’re moving on – with a thousand great photos and a million even better memories.’
