A property perched on one of Australia’s most magnificent coastal ridge lines has been listed for sale on the NSW Central Coast.
The home at 25 High View Rd, Pretty Beach is one of just five homes on the tightly-held strip, where a property has not been listed for 12 years.
Down the street from Pretty Beach House, an exclusive retreat owned by John Singleton, the location is a real hidden gem, tucked away in the ruggedly beautiful Bouddi National Park.
The property overlooks Lobster Beach, a relatively unknown spot even to local coasties who are more familiar with the famous Killcare just around the corner.
Set on a substantial 2219sqm block, views span across to Pearl Beach and Umina.
With a price guide of $2.1-$2.3, the four-bedroom abode known as Lobster House includes a sunny living area flowing onto a terrace, a double carport with locked storage plus separate fourth bedroom or office.
Agent Kerrie Ryan said that she loved the commanding outlook as well as the native angophora that frames a picturesque outlook over the water.
“Even if you didn’t have the water views, that tree is an incredible feature on its own. It’s over 100 years old and very special,” she said.
The house was designed 30 years ago by local Killcare architect John Mckinney and has only had a couple of owners since.
Ms Ryan said that of the five houses on the ridge line, two owners were permanent residents and three used them exclusively as their own private holiday houses.
Celebrities like Justin Bieber and Sophie Monk are rumoured to have stayed at Pretty Beach House, which is famous for its separate pavilion accommodation with private terraces and plunge pools.
