It has direct beach access and water views that the majority of people could only ever dream of waking up to — and it is about to have a lucky new owner.

Of all the state’s properties set to go under the hammer this weekend, the multistorey pad at 38 Bower St generated the highest number of clicks on listings portal realestate.com.au.
The news came as no surprise to listing agent Michael Clarke, who expected to be inundated with inquiry on the unique home.
“We have had interest from people all over the world; we have had calls from Singapore, Hong Kong, the US and the UK,” Mr Clarke, of Clarke and Humel Property, said.
“This is a one of-a kind property and, for whoever buys it, it will be their forever home — this type of house is the reason someone has worked hard their whole life,” he said.
The four-bedroom house is surrounded by landscaped tropical gardens and is packed with high-end extras, including heated floors and a C-Bus smart home automation system.
Designed by architect Vince Squillace to feature plenty of glass, the property has a series of open-plan living spaces, designed to accommodate a family.
While its stylish and inviting facade is typical of beachside residence, it is the other end of the property that showcases what buyers are desperate to call their own — the outlook.
The home rises above Cabbage Tree Bay and has picturesque sights sweeping from Shelly and Manly Beach to the Central Coast.
“There are only a handful of properties on the cliff side of the best street in Manly that have this view, but this one also has the direct beach access and that is what makes it such a standout,” Mr Clarke said.
The luxurious abode, which is walking distance from shops, schools and restaurants, has had more than 100 inspections during its campaign.

It will go to auction tomorrow morning with several registered bidders, who are expected to battle it out.
A sale price at the top end of the guide could see it break the suburb’s residential record, according to CoreLogic data.
