Offering a coveted front-row ticket to the daily show of Woonona’s surf and cycleway, the location and views of 46 Beach Drive are matched only by the quality of the home itself.

Pictures don’t do this impressive home justice – according to Cohen Smith of McGrath Thirroul, the property is best viewed in the flesh.

“You see the high-end finishes, the thoughtful floor plan, and it’s clear this home is a true statement in luxury beachfront living,” he says.

“It’s a great family entertainer and ticks all the boxes for a lot of people.”

Built in 2011, the east facing absolute beachfront property has had extensive updates throughout and takes full advantage of beach views stretching from Bellambi to Woonona points on one side and the majestic escarpment on the other.

The true heart of the home is the upper level. Here, the luxury kitchen, with stainless steel appliances and an impressive marble island benchtop, flows into the generous dining and living spaces with stunning coastline and escarpment views courtesy of large glass sliding doors. These in turn open out onto sun-drenched, oceanfront terraces.

“This is a space people will be drawn to, to sip a coffee and quietly watch the sun rise over the waves, or to open it right up and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze and share some wine and a cheese platter with friends,” Cohen says.

“In the colder seasons, with the doors closed, you can still listen to the sounds of the surf and drink in the views.”

Also on this floor is a rear balcony and the impressive parents’ retreat, complete with a modern ensuite, oversized walk-in wardrobe, and private balcony.

On the ground floor are three more generously proportioned bedrooms with potential for a home office, all featuring built-in cabinetry, and the main bathroom has an invitingly deep free-standing bath that beckons you in for a soak.

Also on this level are two more family living spaces leading to the sparkling in-ground pool and entertaining area.

Other features include ducted air conditioning throughout, solar panels to help minimise power costs and secure parking for up to five cars with private rear lane access and abundant storage.

The price guide for this home is $5.5 million.

Situated within an easy stroll of Woonona’s Olympic-sized ocean pool and East Woonona village shops, schools, public transport and popular eateries, the calibre of the home coupled with its location offer a second-to-none lifestyle.

Vibrant Thirroul village is a short drive away along with numerous scenic beaches, rock pools, oceanfront parks, coastal walks and cycleways. Wollongong CBD is 15 minutes away, and Sydney is just over an hour away, but Cohen says Woonona in itself offers all the attractions one could want.

“Woonona in recent years is ditching its ‘sister suburb’ title and you can see that in the recent sales along this beachfront row and the eastern pocket of the suburb,” he says.

“Within the suburb, this home sets a new benchmark for beachfront living.”

Number 46 Beach Drive, Woonona, is open for inspection on Saturday, 20 January, from noon to 12:30 pm – for more information, contact Vanessa Denison-Pender on 0488 443 174.
