Set to holiday mode in this ultimate entertainer’s retreat

Step inside this flawless holiday house guaranteed to win over family and friends

Fri, Oct 6, 2023 11:25amGrey Clock 2 min

For sun seekers in search of the ideal holiday home, there’s always compromises to be made. The location might not be perfect, the house may be in need of work or it could be just too far from the closest capital city to make regular use viable. 

Not with this elevated beachfront property on the NSW Central Coast.

The two-storey residence at 46 Kalakau Avenue, Forresters Beach is the kind of place guaranteed to make its owners popular among family and friends. With five bedrooms (and a possible sixth) as well as multiple living areas across two floors and two spacious, well-appointed kitchens to service each level, this is a house built for entertaining.

The floorplan has been carefully crafted for easy cross ventilation and natural light to capture the best of its beachside position with the addition of ducted aircon and a built-in fireplace to ensure the house is comfortable all year round. 

Close attention has been paid to circulation between spaces while also providing opportunities for separation – a key advantage when guests come to stay. The predominantly white interior scheme is a perfect match for the seaside locale, offering the perfect ‘canvas’ for putting your own design stamp.

But while the accommodation is generous, it’s the location that really hits the mark with uninterrupted, never-to-be-built-out views of pristine Forresters Beach to enjoy from the spacious entertaining area on the ground floor and the balconies above. 

The property has direct access through reserves to the beach via a set of stairs, the definition of luxury in a modern world. On those days when you’d prefer to stay at home, a private pool and spa is the perfect respite.

For Sydneysiders, it’s less than 90 minutes from the CBD, making weekend getaways an easy option. With a three-car garage on site, there’s room for everyone.


Address: 46 Kalakau Avenue, Forresters Beach

A new development in the Hills District sets a new standard in buyer expectations

Wed, May 22, 2024 3 min

Castle Hill is set to be home to a new hotel-like development, with the announcement that the 94-apartment Astrid site is just weeks away from completion.

While the penthouse apartments across the two buildings have already been snapped up, there are still one, two and three-bedroom residences on offer. The development comes with a gold star iCIRT rating, guaranteeing it has met quality construction standards. The iCIRT rating system has been developed by Equifax in partnership with government, industry and market and rates projects from one to five stars following a rigorous and independent review process.

Steve Harb from developer CBD Core, said it’s the best indicator would-be buyers could have that their investment is safe.

“The iCIRT rating gives people the assurance that we’re trustworthy and have integrity as a developer,” he says. “Our service is complete from start to finish, from developer to builder. 

“As a buyer, you have one point of contact, there’s no shifting responsibility or passing the buck so if anyone has an issue, it can be sorted out as soon as possible.”

He said Astrid has proved popular with locals interested in upgrading without leaving the convenience and amenity of the Hills District. Surrounded by some of the best restaurants, clubs and recreational facilities in the area, it is also just six minutes’ walk to the new Metro station and a seven-minute drive to Castle Towers Shopping Centre. Schools and tertiary education options are also within an easy drive. In addition to some of the best parks and reserves in Sydney, it’s an attractive option for families on the move.

Mr Harb said the concept for the development, as with all his projects, was to create a hotel-like environment.

“I only do boutique projects and when I say ‘boutique’, I mean hotels without the concierge,” he says. “The quality and integrity is built into it.”

The infinity edge pool is surrounded by leafy gardens in a resort-style environment.

Leisure facilities include rooftop gardens and entertaining spaces as well as a fully equipped gym on the ground floor overlooking an infinity edge pool surrounded by lush landscaped gardens. Mr Harb says beautiful landscaping is a signature of all his developments.

“I have lived in the Hills District for more than 15 years and the reason I live here is because I love the leafy environment, the greenery,” he says. “I always like to emphasise that in my developments with strong landscaping.”


Recognising the ongoing desire to adopt a hybrid working model, Astrid provides a dedicated on-site working environment suitable for exclusive use by residents needing focused work time, as well as those seeking professional meeting rooms to receive clients, with wifi enabled work desks, as well as more casual seating. 

Mr Harb said the pandemic taught him that, while working from home was convenient, having breakout spaces within a wider residential development was highly attractive.

“You’re not stuck looking at the same four walls,” he says. “The shared work space at Astrid has comfortable lounges, chairs, coffee tables and more than a dozen cubicles,” he says. “It’s more like going into a meeting room in a hotel.”

The apartments are characterised by light-filled interiors.


The apartments are light-filled living spaces with seamless access to balconies, through to integrated joinery secreting storage. Finishes have been chosen to last, from the Michael Angelo Quartz benchtop and Char Oak Polytec Ravine joinery in the kitchen to the stone splashback and custom-made joinery in the bathroom.

Access throughout the buildings is via a swipe card, providing a secure environment.
