Staff reporterNovember 29, 20200 min read

NSW's Central Coast has a diverse supply of prestige properties, ranging from beachfront homes hugging the sandy shores from Pearl Beach in the south stretching to Norah Head in the north to rural lifestyle properties hidden away in the natural valleys of Matcham and Holgate, according to the latest report from Herron Todd White

The valuation firm said that rural region to the west of the M1 motorway, located in Mount White, Mangrove Mountain, Kulnura and Yarramalong, should not be forgotten with property owners of large rural holdings and horse stud farms calling this area home.

The year so far has been one of uncertainty and unfamiliarity with the emergence of COVID-19, however by looking through the wise lens of hindsight, the prestige market on the Central Coast has shown resilience to date with sustained confidence throughout these uncertain times.

Local agents have been rather buoyed by the level of demand and are reporting increased buyer enquiry from Sydneysiders mixed in with stable local buyer interest. One reason for the increased interest from potential Sydney buyers is the change in workplace environments with the working from home movement in some professions widening the pool of buyers for the region.

"Over the course of the year, we’ve seen some of the most impeccably presented homes the region has to offer transact, with the likes of 21 John Gray Close, Terrigal (pictured) selling for $4.162 million on 11 May and 65 Forresters Beach Road, Forresters Beach selling for $5.2 million on 10 July as reported by CoreLogic RPData. These homes are located along the coastline and exude architectural brilliance with endless ocean views to match, Todd Beckman, a HTW property valuer said.

"For the astute buyers out there who are looking to potentially purchase a prestige property on the Central Coast, look no further than 30 South Pacific Drive, Macmasters Beach. According to CoreLogic RPData, local agent Cathy Baker from Belle Property Killcare is currently listing this property for sale at a price it commands (guide $5.5 million). The property is located on the Macmasters Beach headland, spread over a little over one hectare, boasting an architecturally designed single level residence with its own heated pool, games room, bocce court and putting and pitching greens for the keen golfers."

"Our region is home to some of the most successful and influential business entrepreneurs who make up a percentage of buyers of high-end property on the Central Coast. Celebrities look to our market to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital city lifestyle. It has been publicised that Sophie Monk purchased a rural lifestyle property in Matcham for around $2.25 million; Trevor Hamilton from McGrath Real Estate secured the sale. Although turnover of prestige properties on the Central Coast is typically low, reflective of limited supply levels, the sale prices recorded in our most expensive market in 2020 have equally matched if not exceeded some record sale prices achieved in 2019, indicating that confidence will remain in this market segment throughout the remainder of 2020," Todd Beckman. concluded.
