The location

A waterfront location adjacent to Brisbane Water, with an easy commute to Sydney or Newcastle, Ettalong Beach is a family-friendly area with great local schools. The locals love the lifestyle and the wonderful community spirit.

Bouddi and Brisbane Water National Parks are nearby with their stunning scenery and wildlife. Popular with picnickers, hikers, and off-road cyclists, Ettalong Beach is flat, encouraging family cycle rides and strolls to enjoy the views and the fresh sea air. There are playgrounds dotted along the beach and the water is shallow, kid-friendly, and perfect for a swim.

The area has a rich variety of restaurants and cafes, and chain and boutique shops. There is even a popular local cinema regularly showing art-house movies! Acrow Investments are delighted to have constructed an affordable and desirable property for our clients in this area.

The Project

The white weatherboard facade and Merbau timber porch produce a striking entrance to this spacious home. The granny flat has an L-shape and has been designed and constructed to suit the property shape.

Modern and spacious, the home features two bedrooms with built-in robes, that are separated by the open-plan living area and kitchen. The property is targeted at the local rental market and will be perfect for sharers who want to retain some personal space.

From the carpeted bedrooms to the premium timber laminate flooring, the property is modern and luxurious. There is reverse cycle split system air conditioning for comfort and an all-white kitchen with stone benchtops and modern appliances for practicality.

A property with this quality of build, in this location, will soon be generating a very generous rental income.
