New Wave Of Beach Terraces For Narrabeen


International interest seems certain to be aroused when four new four-level terraces within 100 metres of the world famous North Narrabeen surfing break are unveiled next weekend.

'Zinc’ – named in honour of the much-loved cream used for sun protection – has been designed and developed by award-winning architect Mark Hurcum of MHDP, and built to uncompromising standards.

Mr Hurcum, whose work includes designing houses for Sydney’s high-worth families, has used his 34 years experience to craft bespoke residences that are adaptable enough to suit families and downsizers looking for a sea change, a primary home or a holiday house.

Each terrace is more than 200 square metres internally with front and rear yards, several decks that allow residents to follow the sun, and three basement car spaces. As well as being blessed by ocean vistas and sea breezes, natural light streams into each terrace and accentuates the feeling of spaciousness.

The terraces range from $2.8-M to $3.1-M, and have three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a private lift, rooftop skylounge, gas-heated pool, a basement ‘man cave’ wired for Foxtel, and a plethora of storage space.

“I’ve spent my professional career designing a diverse range of housing, and ‘Zinc’ incorporates many of my most successful ideas that make for an enriched lifestyle,” said Mr Hurcum.

“The terraces embrace beachside living, provide flexible spaces and maximize views, privacy and security,” said Mr Hurcum.

“While the terraces are strata title, only the entry to the underground garage is a communal asset.”

Top northern beaches sales agent Rainer Luedecke of Domain Residential Project Marketing says 'Zinc’ delivers the kind of aspect and lifestyle that people travel all the way to Noosa to try to capture.

“It is within metres of vibrant cafes and restaurants and one of the world’s great surfing spots,” said Mr Luedecke.

“With just four terraces available it is a rare and near unrepeatable opportunity – but not just for locals. We’re sure we’ll be fielding a lot of enquiry from overseas, both from expats and from foreign nationals.”
