A northern beaches house with no drive sells for $845,000
This beach house on Barrenjoey Rd, Bilgola Beach is right on the notorious bends and reached via a flight of steps.
A Bilgola house on the notorious Bilgola Bends and with no car access or drive has sold for $845,000 after months on the market.
The beach house had neither a drive nor space to park a car. Access was via a steep set of stairs from a busy road.
However, the four-bedroom family home has sold for $845,000, to a family with not one but two cars.
The house at 517 Barrenjoey Rd, Bilgola Beach, came to market at the beginning of the year with a price tag of $945,000. The selling agent at the time encouraged people to think outside the box to obtain a family home.
Now an Avalon Beach family has taken up the challenge and purchased the weatherboard home, which has neither vehicular access nor parking.
Seller Rod Taylor said the house enjoyed a lovely situation with ocean views that could not be built out.
“And it is one of the slowest parts of the road,” he said, adding there was potential to build a garage, if council agreed, plus a car could be parked in a nearby street.
“I think the new owners hope to put in a garage.”
The $845,000 price is excellent value for the northern beaches, which has a median house price of $1,535,000.
Even the median unit price is more than $777,000.
The 1960s beach house with its northerly aspect and 613sq m block has been on and off the market since July last year. It sold last month.
