The Carr family are longtime northern beaches residents who wouldn’t dream of leaving the Newport area.
Jeremy grew up in the suburb and loves boating, Kristy, loves the views and their three children are all keen surfers.
Not even founding a top 500 Australian company poised to expand into the Chinese market can dissuade Jeremey and Kristy from moving away. But they have the opportunity to upgrade nearby so are selling their tri-level home with internal lift and northerly views over Newport Beach.
“It is close to Newport Beach but also a few minutes walk to Bungan Beach which we love,” said Kristy who heads up Bubs Australia which makes infant formula and organic baby food.
Kristy was inspired to develop goat milk baby formula after discovering her daughter Chloe was sensitive to cow’s milk.
Bubs Australia was established in 2006, acquired a goat milk product company in 2017, raised another $40 million last year to pursue opportunities in China and late last year signed a deal to obtain an additional 6.2 million litres of goats milk each year from New Zealand.
“Sales into China are 23-fold up on the same period last year,” Mrs Carr said.
The couple bought their property at 24 Bungan Head Rd, Newport from the builder owner and have been impressed with the construction standards. They have simply upgraded the technology and given the five-bedroom home a cosmetic lift using a lot of white, glass and timber.
The house is on 1040sqm of land and has 180 degree views. There is a wet-edge pool with swim jets and a lovely palm-lined courtyard.
The home has CBUS technology, sturdy bifolds, an internal courtyard lined with palm trees and a wet-edge pool with swim jets beside the entertaining terrace.
The lower level of the house works well as a teenage retreat as it houses a large rumpus room, home cinema and the fifth bedroom. This floor also opens to the swimming pool and garden.
The young people can be downstairs having fun while the adults are upstairs on the terrace taking in the view. The deep entertaining deck comes off the living and dining areas. This upper level wraps around the central courtyard giving all the rooms access to outdoor areas.
The middle level consists of four bedrooms and two bathrooms and two of the bedrooms open right up with bifolds to a ten-metre long balcony and the view.

Features include hardwood flooring, ducted reverse cycle airconditioning and level open lawn area with built-in climbing equipment for adventurous children.
The Carrs have a dog, a rabbit and fish but no goats live at the property.
“The house could suit various family units and could work for two families,” said Mrs Carr.
