An Avoca Beach holiday house with missing walls, a tiny retro kitchen and rundown exteriors has sold for $1 million in just one day.
However the original cottage at 29 Arden Ave had one thing that made it stand out – a prized north easterly aspect overlooking North Avoca beach and the ocean.
Held by the same family for over 20 years, agent Ben Crockford from LJ Hooker Terrigal said that the buyers were not even planning to purchase on the Central Coast.
“We went to market on Friday, the buyers saw it that evening and everything was wrapped up by Saturday,” he said.
“They were on holidays here but in a bit of a rush to find something as they’d sold their house in Baulkum Hills. They loved the position and privacy…they plan to slowly renovate and retire to the Central Coast.
When asked if it was liveable, agent Ben Crockford said that it was ‘close to’.
“It is very much a knockdown or total renovation,” he said.
Sitting on a generous 790sqm block with leafy surrounds, the property has direct access to the beach via the public footpath next to the property.
Position on a sought-after culdesac, it includes a self-contained accommodation on the lower level and covered carport.
