The RSL has given away some pretty spectacular beachside properties over the years, but most of them have been located in places that aren’t within easy commuting distance of the city. It’s rare to find a prize home with an ocean view that still has all the advantages of urban living. This latest draw is for anyone who wants one foot in the sand and the other firmly planted on pavement.
The home is located in North Curl Curl, less than half an hour from the centre of Sydney and within a stone’s throw of the beach. This is part of the city’s Northern Beaches region, just up the coast from Manly Beach and nestled in a neighbourhood filled with exclusive properties. You’ll be able to gaze out over the water from your expansive second level terrace and truly appreciate the meaning of a million-dollar view.

The first prize is worth over $4 million and includes a $179,000 design package that makes the five-bedroom house a real home. Everything is included and if you’re the lucky winner, you’ll only need the keys to be able to move right in.
Living in the Northern Beaches
The Northern Beaches extend from the entrance of Sydney Harbour up to the entrance of Broken Bay. North Curl Curl is separated from neighbouring Curl Curl by a lagoon and Greendale Creek, forming a community that’s got its own relaxed vibe.
Curl Curl beach is divided into North and South, and you’ll be looking over the northern stretch and the lagoon from your front terrace. It’s mostly frequented by locals, so you don’t have the crowds you’ll find at Manly. It’s also one of the region’s best places to surf or body board. Both ends of the beach have a life saving club, and the swimming is particularly good near the lagoon. At the south end, there’s an ocean swimming pool for the kids and you’ll find plenty of cafes and places to eat all along the 1.2 km stretch of sand.
A series of walking trails can take you all the way from Palm Beach in the north down to Manly. These coastal walks feature panoramic lookouts and the different trails are suitable for all ability levels. If you want to head for the city, you can hop on the ferry for a half hour ride from Manly and never have to worry about the hassle of taking your car. North Curl Curl is simply a great place to call home – and with Draw 359, you’ll be living in the absolute lap of luxury.
The Prize Home in North Curl Curl
The five-bedroom home spreads over three levels and looks out over the Curl Curl lagoon, beach and vast expanse of ocean. You’ll be able to see the Sydney skyline on the far horizon and catch the sunset from the huge terrace off the upstairs entertainment area.
Three of the bedrooms are on the first level, near the entryway that’s a short flight above the ground level garage. The back half of this floor is given over to the open plan kitchen, living and dining area that opens onto a backyard al fresco. Beyond the outdoor dining area, you’ll find an inground pool and heated spa with plenty of room to relax in a beautifully landscaped and private garden.
Upstairs, there are two more bedrooms including a terrific master suite with its own private balcony. It also has a large walk-in robe and luxurious ensuite with a soaking tub. There’s a massive entertaining area at the top of the stairs that features a wall-mounted TV above a cozy fireplace. This room opens onto a terrace that’s got plenty of outdoor seating where you can catch the ocean breeze. With an additional upstairs retreat and downstairs study, there’s room for everyone to find their own space in this beautifully appointed home.
