BATEAU BAY

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - THE ULTIMATE FIRST HOME BUYERS GUIDE -

Dis­tance from Syd­ney 98.9km Pop­u­la­tion 12,146 Me­dian house price $675,000 Me­dian Apart­ment price $499,000 This leafy sea­side town on the Cen­tral Coast is renowned for its un­derde­vel­oped beauty and fam­ily friendly at­mos­phere, with a pop­u­lar pri­mary school and blos­som­ing cafe cul­ture.

First-home buy­ers priced out of the Syd­ney mar­ket are flock­ing to the tree-lined sub­urb, which has a sim­i­lar feel to Wahroonga, but with a much lower price tag.

Young go-getters who are happy to get the tools out can find old houses on large, flat blocks that are per­fect for ren­o­vat­ing.

Bateau Bay res­i­dents are par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in ren­o­va­tion projects, with plenty of in­spi­ra­tion com­ing from lo­cal celebrity ren­o­va­tors Kyal and Kara Demm­rich who starred on The Block. The pair have com­pleted sev­eral projects in the area and are cur­rently work­ing on their lat­est knock­down re­build near the Blue La­goon beach re­sort.

‘I LOVE THAT THIS SUB­URB IS A FLAT WALK EVERY­WHERE. PEO­PLE CAN WATCH THEIR KIDS WALK TO SCHOOL AND GRAB A COF­FEE AF­TER­WARDS’
