Kratzmann achieved a career-high singles ranking of World No. 50 in March 1990.
He shares why he loves living on the Sunshine Coast.
Bradman Ave, Maroochydore.
Three bedroom unit for $118,000 in 1992.
I wanted property on the river in Maroochydore so I could paddle board and fish and at that point Bradman Ave was fairly quiet.
Now I would never live there as the traffic noise has greatly increased.

Picnic Point Esplanade, Maroochydore.
For all the above reasons however this quiet cul-de-sac is one of the very few on the whole Sunshine Coast that doesn’t get any road noise or through traffic.
There is a boat ramp 100m away so it is easy and fast to be in the river enjoying the coastal lifestyle.
DREAM QUEENSLAND HOME
I am living in it.
Although this is currently a double story house, we are moving to the Penthouse of The Ivy apartments just up the road on Picnic Point Esplanade in a year.
No gardens to tend, and all the luxuries o top floor living on the river.
Probably on Sydney Harbour looking at the bridge and Opera House. And Geneva Switzerland.
