35 Lakedge Avenue, Berkeley Vale.
Open the front door of this neat and charming home at 35 Lakedge Ave, Berkeley Vale and the wow factor will immediately take your breath away – a lake view that sweeps out all the way to The Entrance.
The main living spaces are bright, airy and open, renovated with beachy themes and white washed timber floorboards.
The owner of the property is Bill Wallace, a long-term member of the Arts community.
The property would be perfect for a retiree downsizer.
Mr Wallace performed a town cry at his own open house.
Once a performer at the renowned Old Sydney Town, Mr Wallace is the current town crier for Lane Cove, but has called the Central Coast home for 43 years.
“Everybody that comes to this house for the first time says wow when they walk in,” he said.
“I find it very calming and therapeutic being here, being by the water. I spend a lot of time in the rat race of Sydney and I just can’t wait to get home.”

Perfect for entertaining, you can cook while looking onto the main living room that spills onto the back deck, grassy lawn and cycleway lining the picturesque waterfront.
The charming garden with splashes of bright colour has been lovingly cared for by Mr Wallace, who said that it was low maintenance with raised beds and potted plants.
Next door to the yard is a little studio with a killer view, which Mr Wallace uses as a bit of a library.

Currently working on a history project, his championship trophies for his many achievements as a town crier are proudly displayed on an extensive bookshelf.
Originally a one-bedroom fishermans cottage, the property was already extended and renovated when Mr Wallace and his late wife moved in.
“I am reluctantly selling. Even when it’s raining and overcast, the view is always wonderful.”
