This beautifully designed 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home was only built in 2008 and is in an exclusive enclave of four modern waterfront homes in Mannering Park, on the southern shores of Lake Macquarie on the Central Coast of NSW. "Sand" is the ultimate weekender only an hour's drive from the start of the M1 or Newcastle Airport The house sits on a near level absolute waterfront block with a jetty and with internal access from the garage.

Covered decks overlooking the lake invite al fresco dining and, as seafood abounds on the Central Coast, fresh fish caught that day can be served up from the barbeque that night deliciously washed down with a chilled bottle of wine or two as the sun sets over the lake! Watch the crystal clear night sky for shooting stars whilst listening to the fish jumping & the water lapping the shore just metres away. Very cathartic!

This modern executive home, designed with big spacious rooms and two big separate living areas is equipped as follows:

The gourmet kitchen with Granite benchtops & European appliances is fully equipped and includes:

* Microwave.

* Fridge - freezer (there is a 2nd fridge in the garage).

* Dishwasher.

* Toaster, kettle, electric fry pan, mixer, slow cooker.

* Coffee pod machine & plunger

ie Everything that you would expect and more.

Sand is perfect for two families or up to 5 couples or combinations thereof.

Have you own pool or snooker championship on the lovely slate base pool table.

A beautiful flat soft grassed backyard with well established trees leads right onto the jetty & lake.

Enjoy a game of backyard Cricket or Badminton or just relax on one of the 4 sunlounges with a book. For the more adventurous take one of the 2 Kayaks for a ride on the sheltered glassy waters straight from the backyard. A number of life vests are provided from small child to adult size. Bikes can also be hired nearby.

There is also a table tennis table and dart board in the garage

Launch your boat or Jet Ski from the boat ramp at the end of the street and moor it out the front of the house on your Jetty. There is a rowboat available on site for guest use.

Spend your day in or on the lake in warm, calm, sheltered waters, fish from the jetty (Fishing licence required), relax on the sun lounges overlooking the lake or gather in the shade of the trees or around the 6 burner gas BBQ cheering on your mates playing any of the several activities the home has been equipped with.

The Lake has an abundance of marine life - Flathead, Bream, Snapper, Prawns, Mullet, Crabs and Tailor. As "Sand" is located near the Vales Point Power Station, the water is warm all year round and attracts some fish only usually found in tropical waters such as Cobia, Mangrove Jack and Queenfish. Grab a chair and drop a line off the jetty at sunset with a chilled drink. Keep your catch in the beer/utility fridge in the garage together with your chilled liquid sustenance.

Should you wish to have a Dinner Party catered in-house, we have an exclusive catering firm who specialise in such functions and will personalise your dining experience leaving you free to enjoy the evening with your friends and family. Nearby is the Doylo, a modern RSL which offers a free shuttle service.

By arrangement, " Sand" can also provide a fishing guide and boat to pick you up at your own jetty and take you to the top spots. The owner of the boat will give you a price specifically based on your needs and group size. The fishing boat owners' contact information will be forwarded to you if requested before your check-in so you can make your arrangements directly with him.

Sailing, skiing, scuba diving, wakeboarding, Jetskiing, sculling and fishing are world class and right at your own doorstep.

The only problem is that a few days might not be enough.........................

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! My friends and I went to the Sand for a weekend together. The place is advertised exactly as is, a beautiful location and the house was amazing! There was plenty of activities for us to do within the house - pool table, table tennis, BBQ'ing and fishing so we didnt even leave the premises for the weekend.

Excellent Property

We stayed at this property for 4 nights after christmas and it was fabulous, and very clean. During the whole of our stay we had a heatwave, the aircon worked very well, so we were very thankful for that. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you!

Great weekended

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Sand. Everything we needed for 2 families. Even when it was raining there was plenty to do. The kitchen was well stocked with all cooking equipment and the view was beautiful. We have no hesitation in recommending this property and the owners.

My family and I had a great time this weekend at the Sand Executive Lake House. It was perfect in every way, spacious, activities, location, view, inclusions, we wanted for absolutely nothing, only a few extra days. The weekend was not long enough. We hope to be going back in the near future.
