March Wrap: The Sea Changers drawn by unique family homes
The beauty of our beach lifestyle has attracted many families to our shores this month, with buyers drawing from towns and cities further afield than you’d expect.
While we’ve still seen many Sydney-siders making the move, we’ve also sold to those from Canberra and as far away as Mudgee.
4 and 5 bedrooms popular for growing families
Two large modern homes in Thirroul and Coledale captured the most attention from buyers this month.
The exceptionally renovated 5 bedroom, two-storey residence at 27 Armagh Parade exchanged hands for $1,355,000, a testament to the value buyers place on stylish, contemporary living.
The elegance of 11 Elanora Place in Coledale, a 4-bedroom light-filled home with magical sea views, inspired a worthy sale price of $1,720,000.
Homes with character and history inspires
As we look to the month ahead, there is a good mix of larger homes, including those whose history and unique features offer families a chance to grow and make the space their own.
3 Lachlan Street in Thirroul is a 3-bedroom charmer, which is brought to market for the first time in three generations. It’s a slice of Thirroul history.
The grandparents of life-time local Kay Farrington built the property around the early 1920s. It has retained much of its historical features with original NZ kauri floorboards and Oregon pine cornices.
Just as the Farrington’s have put their own stamp on Thirroul with this much-loved home, Kay would hope new owners do the same, with the tremendous scope this home offers to further enhance.
The impressive beachside residence at 816 Lawrence Hargrave Drive in Coledale boasts that same unique flavour. Visitors are welcomed by a central oak staircase, stunning handcrafted cedar doors and woodwork. There they can enjoy ocean views from almost every room.
Family dream makers hit the market
Ocean views and large, light-filled homes always inspire buyers. We’re proud this month to bring to market several that offer that kind of family-friendly lifestyle.
Among those most sought after is the stunning 4-bedroom, 2-storey home at 20B Farrell Rd, in East Bulli. From the moment you enter you are given a sense of space and harmony.
