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.
Mannering Park is a small sheltered fishing hamlet and local fishermen will regularly offer you varieties of seafood right at your doorstep, especially freshly caught and cooked prawns.
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!

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.
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.
