PROPERTY OF THE WEEK

House of the week in Newport: Is this the best beach house in Sydney?

Here's what a $12 million Sydney trophy home looks like

Beachfront trophy homes with direct access to the sand don't come up often.

So those who are keen to secure a little piece of the coast are set to have their eyes on 164 Barrenjoey Road, Newport.

Currently owned by an eastern suburbs family who use it as a weekender, listing agent Anthony Walls from Max Walls International says: "In my 37 years in real estate, I've sold some of the best properties on the ocean and this is one of the best I've ever seen."

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has space for five cars down a long driveway.

North-east facing, it has 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean so you'll be the first to catch the sunrise, do some yoga on the deck and then wander down your private pathway to the beach for a dip in the surf.

If lazing by the pool is more your style, you can do that in the privacy of your own yard, or relax in the light and bright home brimming with coastal style.

Basically, it's a luxury beach house on steroids set to appeal beach lovers or boating types who will enjoy the easy access to multiple nearby marinas.

While the current owner has been using it as a second home, it won't be surprising if it goes to someone who wants a full-time 'lifestyle home' now that COVID has popularised the work-from-home trend, especially in the northern beaches.

Walls says he's already been inundated with queries, with many coming from overseas buyers keen to park their money in assets in the relative safety of Australia.

"It's absolutely international standard," he says. "You could be in the south of France or Hawaii."
