Former Newcastle lord mayor Jeff McCloy and wife Tracey are selling their landmark Belmont property.
Positioned in the idyllic Green Point Estate and built in 1996, the Far North Queensland-inspired residence at 148 Ross Street is set on almost 2000 square metres of prime waterfront land and features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, multiple living spaces, a separate guest house, in-ground pool, expansive outdoor deck, wine cellar, back-to-base security, three-car garage, private jetty and slipway.
With the walking tracks of Green Point Reserve at the end of the street and the water playground of Lake Macquarie on the doorstep, the house is perfectly located to enjoy the great outdoors, while still being positioned close to retail, dining and transport options.
The property will be marketed locally, nationally and internationally by LJ Hooker Belmont's Joshua O'Doherty through expressions of interest. Mr O'Doherty said the striking residence set the standard for other lakeside properties in the Green Point enclave.
"148 Ross Street is a one-off, free-form absolute waterfront dwelling that was primarily built as the McCloy family home," Mr O'Doherty said. "It is the pinnacle for the Green Point Estate, developed by the McCloy family.
"The unparalleled resort-style residence is only matched by its unrivalled location set in the golden triangle of east Lake Macquarie waterfront locations."
With breathtaking views from every aspect, the home is brimming with character, stories and luxury inclusions and features a porthole from the sunken Sygna.
