We dream about one day buying a beach house, I would like it to be on Sydney's Northern Beaches. It is only 20 minutes from where we live but because it is on a peninsula it might as well be an hour away. I would drive up every Friday afternoon with the boys and F would meet us up there after work. Perfect scenario.
A couple of months ago while surfing property sites I found the house above in Newport. Absolute beachfront, check. Own path and gate to beach from garden, check. A very nice kitchen, check. Lots of rooms to fit all the family and friends who would come up and we still wouldn't get in each others way, check. A steam room (!!!), check. A surfboard shack at the bottom of the garden, check.
Unfortunately I missed the boat, someone else snapped it up before I could hock the family jewels. I guess I'll just keep on searching.
