A Well Kept Secret Sale - a Fabulous Family Home, with a More Recent Rich Air BNB History, Sold to Another Fabulous Family Full of Love & Laughter!

When you sell more homes in 2281 and Caves Beach than any other agent, you get to meet a lot of buyers along the way.
Sometimes you meet someone who would be just perfect for a home that you know the owners would sell, so long as the price and timing were just right.
This is exactly what happened with this wonderfully authentic family residence, which began its life as a much-loved family home of Mum, Dad and their 2 boys, who built it to escape Sydney and enjoy life by the sea.
Outgrown, with the boys now men and long having flown the coup, Mum and Dad finally decided the home was too big for them and downsized to an apartment, exchanging a big house and big workload for water views and lifestyle.
Deep down, Dad wasn't quite ready to let his baby go, so they kept the home and he lovingly maintained the lawns, while Mum very capably created a ridiculously successful AIR BNB property, but eventually Dad realised home was becoming less of a home and more of an investment and one day he woke up and agreed to sell, but not in a public way and only if the price was right, while Mum said we'd have to work around her bookings.
With 4 beautiful big bedrooms up top, with an ensuite off the master and a lovely light filled living area, the home worked for our light seeking, big family, who needed their 2 little ones nearby and space for their 2 big kids to get away, with lots of room for older siblings, who'd left home to come back for birthdays and Christmas celebrations.
Downstairs delivered a 5th bedroom with access to a 2-way bathroom off the laundry, perfect for their HSC studying child, who needed a little piece and quiet.
With 2 to 3 very spacious open living areas downstairs, everyone in the family could come together but also spread apart, with Mum and Dad able to watch the little kids out in the small backyard from the kitchen, while still talking to the big kids and visitors indoors as well, with an outlook to the big covered outdoor entertaining and rear living too.
A perfect fit, all that was needed next was for us to sell the new family's home, so they could buy the old family's home, which we did in no time and for a record price.
A little dated in parts, but beautiful in all the ways that matter, a quiet cul-de-sac, one house off beachfront reserve, lots of bedrooms, living and bathrooms, North facing for summer sea-breezes and winter sun, both lovely families knew it was a match made in heaven, right from the get-go!
The rest is history!
