THERE is no way to sugar coat it — this house needs a lot of work. A lot.
But, even so, it has plenty going for it, including a level, 415sqm block in a sought-after location, 400m from North Curl Curl Beach.

This is the first time the secure, gated property at 8 Griffin Rd, North Curl Curl has been offered for sale since the 1960s.
It has a two-level home with a private backyard.
Each floor is self-contained and there is a tandem undercover carport and all-weather patio.
Tony White, of LJ Hooker Balgowlah, said the deceased estate would be sold at auction.
He said it represented a prime opportunity for a buyer to build their dream home, or for a project.
“It would present really well for a young couple wanting to make a start or a builder looking for a project,” he said.
“It’s an old house, it needs a lot of work but it’s in a great location.”
The house is empty so it is easy to see what a blank canvas it is for someone wanting to renovate.

For those wanting to knockdown and rebuild, the block has good access.
The property is within walking distance of parks and playing fields, shops and cafes, and transport. Warringah Mall and the newly revamped Harbord Diggers are a short drive away.
Mr White said the property represented entry level buying for North Curl Curl.
He is expecting plenty of interest when it is opened for inspection for the first time today.
According to CoreLogic, the median house price for North Curl Curl is $2,418,000, which represents a 79 per cent price growth over five years.
The property goes to auction on August 18, at 11.30am, with a price guide of $1,600,000-$1,800,000.
