NSW’s Minister for the Arts Don ­Harwin has bought at Pearl Beach, the rather creative community on the Central Coast.

Harwin snapped up a three-bedroom investment property just 10 days into its marketing, paying around $1.3 million.

Set 300 metres from the beach, the home had been listed unsuccessfully last year at $1.49 million.

It was playwright David Williamson who enjoyed and then captured the hamlet’s essence during his extended ownership.

Pearl Beach helped inspire his 17th play, Money And Friends.

The now Noosa-based Williamson and his wife Kirstin first bought there in 1979 for $55,000.

Over the decades owners have included television interviewer Andrew Denton, arts philanthropist ­Sophie Landa, actor Robyn Nevin and historian Keith Windschuttle.

Harwin sold at Vincentia on the South Coast in 2017 for $649,000.
