First resale in Zinc, Mark Hurcum-designed Narrabeen development

Take a dip in your own rooftop pool — 6A Malcolm St, Narrabeen.

When celebrated architect Mark Hurcum unveiled his latest creation of a collection of four terrace-style townhouses, known as Zinc Narrabeen, in 2015, there was plenty of interest.

And not only because they came with his signature — they also marked his foray into development — but for the level of luxury and features.

Each terrace has more than 200sqm internally with front and rear yards, decks, private lift, rooftop sky lounge with gas-heated pool, and a basement “man cave”.

The homes have multiple living areas.

Inside and out.

Including a private, heated rooftop pool.

The interiors took their design cues from a luxury ocean liner, with intricate timber decking and nautical influences.

All of the lighting and built-ins have been ­designed by Mr Hurcum, including a ­bespoke Corian island kitchen.

It was no surprise that two of the terraces sold within hours of opening for the first time for a VIP inspection and function.

One of those buyers was former teacher and now successful artist Anne Spencer and her husband.

Every home has a private lift to every level.

Even the lift is fancy.

The kitchen.

The couple have loved every moment living in their spacious terrace, and the “man cave” has proved more than suitable as an art studio, she said.

“We just love it, everything is such good quality, we use the pool all the time and it is so private,” Ms Spencer said.

“One of the things that has really taken me by surprise is how central everything is in Narrabeen. I can get the bus into the city and there are some great restaurants and cafes within walking distance, we love Mexicano.”

Their much-loved home is the first one in the complex to come up for resale since the development was completed.

Simon Gourlay, of Domain Residential Newport, said Zinc had set a benchmark for the suburb’s beachside strip.

Bedrooms are bright and private.

Edgy design.

Located in a private spot between Narrabeen beach and the lagoon, No. 6A Malcolm St, Narrabeen, has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three car spaces — and so much more.

There is private elevator access to each floor, and an exclusive roof top sky deck with kitchen, barbecue, additional lounge/dining facilities, plus a private rooftop heated plunge pool.

Ms Spencer has used the “man cave” as an art studio.

More outdoor living.

Narrabeen’s housing market has not only remained insulated against the property downturn, but it has seen growth in house prices. The median house price in Narrabeen grew by 9.2 per cent in the 12 months to January, to $2,350,000. This represents a five-year growth rate of 74.1 per cent.

The general median house sale price for the northern beaches is $1,740,000, according to CoreLogic.

There has been some correction in apartment prices, with prices coming off by 8 per cent in the 12 months to January, to settle at a median of $830,000, not far of the northern beaches general median unit price of $870,000. Unit prices in Narrabeen are still holding firm over the long-term, with a five-year growth rate of 36.1 per cent.
