Raine & Horne agent Danielle Harris will happily stand in the middle of the road in front of 28 Jerry Bailey Road, Shoalhaven Heads to prove her point – this is the kind of serene coastal community you see in family movies.

“It’s one of those old-school neighbourhoods where kids can hop on their bikes and pop down to the local bakery for a loaf of bread or an iced bun, and their parents don’t have to worry,” she says.

“This is one of the few places left this close to Sydney that retains that beautiful aspect of country-coast living, while still having all the conveniences and amenities you need close by.”

Wholesome, family-friendly living is far from the only drawcard at this beautifully refurbished, four-bedroom, two-bathroom home. From the polished timber floors to the Velux skylights, every detail has been carefully considered in the renovation of this coastal retreat, to ensure coming home is like a holiday.

The house itself is a reflection of the neighbourhood: all the charm of a cottage-style resident with a modern twist. The crisp aesthetic of this sun-lit home plays backdrop to a layout designed to bring people together.

The kitchen is the hub of the home, featuring stone benchtops, a dishwasher and stainless-steel appliances.

But the undeniable heart of the home is the open plan family/dining area abutting the generous backyard, which bathes in northerly sun.

Here, expansive glass bi-fold doors fully open along two walls to reveal a covered outdoor entertainment space.

When the doors are open, coastal breezes flow freely as you enjoy glorious views of Coolangatta Mountain.

“You could be enjoying wine and a cheese platter with friends on the lounge, gathering around the firepit, preparing a meal in the kitchen or hosting a barbecue, and still watch the kids kick a footie around the backyard,” Danielle says.

“It’s an all-seasons setup, though. Close those doors and thanks to the glass, there’s still a seamless connection between the indoors and outdoors.

“As for the backyard, there would be plenty of space to put in a pool.”

The low-maintenance gardens front and back are beautiful and easily cared for thanks to an irrigation system. Established trees and towering bamboo ensure privacy.

The enormous garage houses up to six cars and has enormous potential for storage or conversion.

“There’s a bathroom in the garage, so subject to council approval you could convert part of it into a granny flat, or use it as a home office, studio, workshop or whatever suits you,” Danielle points out.

The residence is perched on a generous 790-sqm block within easy access to pristine beaches, scenic walking trails and a vibrant community atmosphere.

Complete with a cleverly concealed ramp out front, the home offers easy access to all. As well as families, this single-level home is also well suited to retirees, downsizers or people looking for a holiday home a comfortable distance between Canberra and Sydney.

“You’ll find everything you need close by – the local pub, a beautiful 18-hole golf course, a bowling club, shops, doctors, schools, public transport – but residents here can also easily drive to Sydney for lunch and back,” Danielle says.

“The river just down the road has some good fishing, and the patrolled surf beach is within walking distance.

“The grounds are low-maintenance and the house is easy to clean, so it also makes for the most perfect short stay accommodation investment, because it’s a real ‘lock and leave’ setup.”

The price guide for this home is $1.45 to $1.55 million.

Number 28 Jerry Bailey Road, Shoalhaven Heads is open for inspection this Saturday 4 May from 10:45 to 11:15 am. For more information, contact Danielle Harris of Raine & Horne Shoalhaven Heads on 0407 226 032.
