This incredible waterfront at 76 Daley Avenue, Daleys Point has been listed for sale.

The first word that sprang to mind when Jim Robertson thought about his Daleys Point home was ‘‘casual’’.

The retired Sydneysider and his wife Di have lived at the incredible waterfront property at 76 Daley Ave for 16 years, sharing their time between here and their Birchgrove pad with Harbour Bridge views.

“The house is comfortable, much more so than our Sydney property, which is something we will miss,” Mr Robertson said.

What a place for an afternoon dip.

In 2003 the pair created their dream property, hiring renowned waterfront architect, Kevin Snell to give the Daleys Point home a major makeover, removing most of the walls and opening the place up.

“Snell has delivered the essence of deep waterfront living with this spectacular home, which suits its surroundings perfectly,” selling agent Dale Bassett from PRD Ettalong said.

Mr Robertson agreed and said that the best thing about the house is the multiple patios and entertainment decks.

One of the many entertainment decks at the property.

“There are all these bi-fold doors with five folds that allow the light and sun to be captured all day long,” the vendor said.

“Even in the afternoon when you get the western sun, we have these electronic louvres that control the temperature perfectly.”

Set over a large 1037sqm parcel, the split-level property with versatile and interchangeable floorplan includes an open-plan kitchen with Miele appliances, ducted airconditioning, underfloor heating and a waterfront swimming pool.

The split-level property was described by the owner as ‘casual’.

Lush green gardens surround the property, giving it the feel of a holiday escape.

“Pottering around the gardens, the setting is a tropical haven all year-round,” Mr Bassett said.

Mr Roberston said that the move to the Central Coast was mainly an opportunity to play around with his boating hobby.

With a deep water jetty, deep water mooring, slipway, private pebble beach and active waterfront lifestyle, it looks like he chose the right location.

Architect Kevin Snell helped transform the property.

Volunteering with the local marine rescue for 16 years, Mr Robertson said that he regularly kayaks from the beach and loved the location with its easy access to Peninsula activities.

“We’re close to Ettalong Beach for swimming and Killcare Beach for the surf,” he said.

“I think where the house is would be the best spot though — everyone who lives here rejoices in the beautiful sunsets — they are spectacular.”


Daleys Point is one of the most desirable suburbs on the Central Coast, set on the Brisbane Waters.

Ten minutes from Woy Woy train station and shopping centres and just an hour north of Sydney, the area attracts “sea changers” or those looking for a waterfront holiday home.

Selling both his properties, Mr Robertson said that he will be sad to sell but is ready for a new life in the Southern Highlands.

“We’re going to turn into gardeners instead of mariners,” he said.

No. 76 Daley Ave, Daleys Point is for sale via private treaty with PRD Ettalong and has a price guide of $2.85-$3.1 million.
