Last year RSL Lotteries general manager Tracey Bishop said that although the lottery was conducted nationwide, almost half the tickets for the Carrington Pde beach house sold in NSW with most of the ticket buyers coming from North Curl Curl, Freshwater and North Manly.
And it was a northern beaches family who won the four-bedroom house on the border of Freshwater and Curl Curl.
In fact the RSL Art Union had so much success with its Freshwater lottery house it bought a second house in the area to renovate and offer in another lottery. Number 18 Austin Ave, North Curl Curl was won last year by another northern beaches winner, this time an older couple.
James Hawley, of Stone Real Estate, said the Carrington Pde residence offered a wonderful lifestyle with ocean views from most rooms and a position footsteps from Curl Curl Beach.
“The house is bathed in northeast aspect and has epic views stretching from Curl Curl across to North Head,” Mr Hawley said.
The kitchen is made of stone with gas cooking, Smeg appliances and a walk-in pantry.
The main bedroom has its own bathroom, a walk-in wardrobe, parents retreat or a second living area.
Freshwater continues to be one of the most heavily searched suburbs in NSW and the median house price, according to CoreLogic, is $2.325 million. This property is expected to sell for considerably more than that figure when it is goes to auction on Saturday June 22.
