Northern beaches sailing legend Tervor Barnabas has no doubt seen some spectacular views in a career that has spanned some five decades.
But few would rival the one he can find right in his own backyard, at 43 Bungan Head Rd, Newport.

And now it is up for sale — for the first time in some 20 years.
Barnabas, an 18ft champion sailor many times over, and his wife Gail, are selling their stunning oceanfront home, which comes with what would have to be one of the area’s most beautiful pools.
Heated of course, the infinity-edge pool/spa is perched high above Bungan Beach and has uninterrupted views south down the coastline to Manly and east to the horizon.
One can only imagine the sunrises on offer from this private spot.
But James Baker, of McGrath Avalon, said the property also had a wonderful westerly view, making for some equally spectacular sunsets.
“It is a very special property,” he said.

Bag a beaches property bargain
The 930sqm property at 43 Bungan Head Rd, has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and direct access down onto the beach. It has been completely renovated, with a focus on lots of glass and indoor/outdoor flow.
The layout is versatile enough to make it suitable for large or extended families, which would add to its appeal to holiday home buyers, Mr Baker said.
He said there was still a strong market for holiday homes in this price bracket. A similar home in the neighbourhood with less of a view sold for a holiday home in an $8.2 million off-market sale late last year, he said.
“There is still a lot of interest from people looking for holiday homes,” Mr Baker said.
Other features of the Barnabas home include a gourmet marble island kitchen with induction cooking, climate control throughout, gas fireplace, grey ironbark floors, landscaped gardens with sun decks and level lawn areas, double garage and off-street parking.
There is a self-contained studio for guest accommodation or added income. This has its own private access separate from the main house.
The property has a price guide of $8,000,000-$8,500,000. For inspection details contact James Baker, of McGrath Avalon.
