Former Hillsong Church leader sells iconic cliffside pad

Christian music star and former Hillsong leader Darlene Zschech and her pastor husband Mark have sold their iconic Terrigal property in just seven days.

The home is one of the most incredible you could imagine, set on the cliffside overlooking near 360 degree views of the ocean stretching from Spoon Bay to Cape Three Points.

One of the best views on offer from the Central Coast.

Selling agent Tim Andrews from LJ Hooker Terrigal would not comment on the sale price, but during marketing the property had a guide of $4-$4.4 million. It was purchased by a local family making a sea change from acreage.

With luxury touches sprawling across three separate levels, the 1258sqm property hugs the headland that separates Terrigal and North Avoca and includes state of the art home technology, multiple entertainment areas including a pool and barbecue area and several cliff facing balconies as well as a private movie theatre.

Not a bad place to bang out a tune.
