Who says you can’t have a waterfront property, 43km from the Sydney CBD, on a budget?
Here is just the thing — a level block of 1269sqm with a pristine creek and saltwater lagoon frontage.
The saltwater is a key bonus, according to the selling agent Kathryn Hall, of Kathryn Hall Real Estate Avalon.
“No mossies,” she said.
Another bonus is the price guide of $560,000.
There is a catch of course. No. 26 Diggers Cres, Great Mackerel Beach is only accessible by water.
You can access the small coastal hamlet located directly opposite Palm Beach on the Western Foreshores of Pittwater, either by a private boat, water taxi or the regular ferry service.
Ms Hall said the area had become more popular with buyers in the past 12 months, thanks to the affordable properties on offer, and the location, surrounded by national park and a long stretch of sandy beach.
“There are not many communities like this one,” she said. “The accessibility is an issue, but it’s a lot easier than people might think.”
The block comes with approved DA for a new home, and substantial land preparation with foundations in place. There is power to the site, which has direct salt water creek and lagoon frontage.
Ms Hall said the property was a 650m, level walk to the beachfront and boat access.
“It is such a lovely location,” she said.
If you can’t see yourself as the building type, and have the money to stretch further, here is a home prepared earlier — right next door.
No. 28 Diggers Cres is also quietly on the market with Ms Hall, and has a price guide of $1,250,000-$1,375,000. The three-bedroom home has been constructed over the saltwater lagoon and offers the opportunity to feel completely at one with nature.
“This is a wonderful home, which was built with such pride, and care and precision,” she said.
This three-bedroom home comes with two bathrooms, a modern kitchen, multiple outdoor decks perfect for dining and entertaining.
There is also a deck from which to launch the canoe and paddle boards
There are polished wide plank blackbutt floors throughout and airconditioning.
Both properties are open for inspection by appointment.
