The northern beaches area of Sydney was hammered by storms over the weekend.
The coastal region – which forms a peninsula at its northernmost point before reaching the central coast – just 45 minutes from the CBD, has been battling floodwaters and raging seas for the past three days.
One house in Collaroy lost its pool to the sea when the ground beneath it gave way due to surf erosion.
Many of the houses along this beach, and also in Narrabeen, have been facing this dire fate for years. Locals have said it was just a matter of time.
There have been rumours that even insurance premiums in the area are so high that some can’t afford stay.
Here’s a look at some of the waterfront houses in the area that are for sale.
