ROSS and Ni­cole Cush took the term “seek­ing a sea-change” lit­er­ally when they bought this lux­ury wa­ter­front prop­erty.

The cou­ple owned a farm out west but in 2012 de­cided to pack up their fam­ily and visit Broad­beach Wa­ters in search of the per­fect coastal home.

“We’d al­ways hol­i­dayed in Broad­beach so we knew the area re­ally well,” Mr Cush said.

He said they in­spected al­most 20 houses in one week­end with­out any luck.

It was by chance they stum­bled upon 13 Sheri­dan Park Ave.

Mr Cush said af­ter giv­ing up hope, they saw a prop­erty they liked in the win­dow of a lo­cal agency.

The agent said they wouldn’t be able to see the prop­erty be­fore mak­ing the five hour trip home but he of­fered to show them a sim­i­lar one that was be­ing built.

The Cush fam­ily took a se­cond look when it was fin­ished and fell in love with it.

“It was ex­actly what we wanted,” Mr Cush said.

He said they liked the home’s po­si­tion on the canal and the street was fam­ily friendly, with chil­dren play­ing cricket on the road when they first vis­ited.

“One of my favourite fea­tures of the whole home was the guest suite down­stairs,” Mr Cush said.

He said it was per­fect for fam­ily mem­bers who strug­gled to tackle stairs.
