Chris Hasson Showcases 37 Midshipman Corlette

Chris Hasson gives you a virtual walk through this unique property under $500,000

The property has lots of unique lines and a mountain of character.

This is largely due to the split level and ceilings as well as a unique floorplan.

The home as Chris describes has some selling features that separates it from it’s rivals.

The home has side access for a boat, trailer or caravan. It also has a walk way which takes

you through the neighbouring homes and onto one of the best still water family beaches in

Port Stephens. Perfect for watching sunsets and protected from the Summer NE winds.

This brand new total renovation and extension is of such clever design, function and aesthetic appeal that the massive home separates itself as a very unique investment that takes full advantage of lifestyle and position. Simply amazing!

Luxury across the road from the beach doesn’t come better than this cleverly thought out masterpiece. This house tells a story. And if you love smart design, contemporary living and the beach lifestyle, then this property is for you. It’s a rare offering for discerning buyers and an opportunity that doesn’t come around very often. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity!

This home is not only aesthetically beautiful with stunning finishes but extremely well built with careful thought put into every detail. This is the homes story:

The first major job was to build retaining walls to support the hill.

All ag lines are to engineer’s details. All retaining walls are waterproofed. All storm water pipes to street on both sides of house are 100mm wide.

The rainwater tank is 4,000L with overflow to street. Clean outs for sewer line are located in garage and service area.

The building also has all plumbing in place in roof and can be connected later if owner wishes to change to solar.

All timber frames are blue pine with galvanised nails.

Sarking on all external walls on stud framing.

All ceilings and walls are insulated both internally and externally giving the home a lasting solitude inside.

Sound screen between both floors.

Decking- treated pine decking. Posts and railings are designer pine.

Fully ducted air conditioning and ducted vacuum throughout home.

Numerous phone lines/ internet connection points throughout house.

TV points in all bedrooms, 4 in rumpus room area and 2 in living area upstairs.

Timber floors are UNIWOOD floors. Engineered designed hardwood with lime washed finish.

Kitchen- semi gloss (Star White) cupboards, European appliances,integrated dishwasher, walk in pantry, Ceasar stone bench tops and splash back in Frosty Carrina.


It’s a great location for many reasons but proximity to one of the most popular beaches is top of the list.

Views of this beach can be seen from both balconies, lounge room, kitchen and guest’s bedroom.

Little Salamander Beach (as it was called or referred to many years ago) is getting better every year.

It has changed from swampy mangroves to a beautiful sandy beach. High tide is just amazing as you find all age groups cooling off in the clear water.

Canoeists and paddle boarders really enjoy the calm water of the beach which is always protected from the strong northeast winds which blow throughout the summer months.

Low tide brings a whole new look to this beach.

Children can safely walk around and play in the warm puddles, many keen people pump for yabbies, games of cricket or the chance to fly a kite out on the sand if the wind is about.

Roy Wood Reserve is very popular all year round (except if there is a westerly blowing, which is mainly in the winter and not good conditions for the beach.)

Many locals wander to this park to enjoy the well maintained facilities, have get togethers under the shady trees or sit on the warm sand, enjoy a drink or two and take in the amazing sunset.

Children can walk or ride to schools.

Bus stop is very close to home.

For those who love natural produce, there is a large chicken coup and vegetable garden perfect for enjoying fresh eggs and vegetables.

Salamander Shopping Centre is a short distance away.

This property is just one of the luxury properties in Port Stephens built with design and lifestyle in mind. The property is not for sale but if you have an interest in this property or any properties like it please don’t hesitate to call Chris on 0402348080.

New Swimming Pool Regulations

by admin on October 22, 2013

Chris Hasson explains the new Swimming pool Act for Real Estate Sales

As you will undoubtedly know, the 29th October 2013 deadline for complying with the Swimming Pools (Amendment) Act 2012, calling for the registration of all backyard swimming pools, is fast approaching.

The NSW Swimming Pool Register has now gone live, allowing householders to register their backyard swimming pools ahead of the October deadline.

The Swimming Pools (Amendment) Act requires all homeowners to register their pools online by 29 October 2013, or face paying a fine. But the register is now up and running and NSW pool owners can register their pools now.

Pool owners will also be required to provide a valid compliance certificate before being able to sell or lease a property with a pool as of 29 April 2014.

The legislation also outlines requirements for councils, which include:

  • organising a pool barrier inspection program by 29 October 2013, and inspecting any pool that is complained about to the counc il;
  • compiling an annual report on the number of pool inspections undertaken and the level of compliance with the requirements;
  • conducting pool inspections prior to the sale or lease of a property at the request of a pool owner; and
  • issuing compliance certificates, valid for three years, after an inspection which finds a pool barrier compliant with the requirements of the legislation.

Councils may charge a fee up to a maximum of $150 for the inspections.

For more information about the Act, and for checklists aimed at assisting pool and spa owners in assessing the safety of their pools and spas, see the NSW Government Swimming Pools Register and check out the Royal Life Saving Society’s information about the register.

The following is the link to the swimming pool register.
