To check out the surf at Stanwell Park Beach, one need only lift their head off the pillow in the main bedroom of 18 Seaview Crescent, Stanwell Park.

In fact, the home was expertly engineered so that most rooms take advantage of its sweeping views, with the surf less than 100 metres away.

“You could throw a stone and hit the lagoon, that’s how close the beach is,” Ray White agent Ian Pepper says.

“You can wake every morning to the sounds of the surf outside your window.”

Newly constructed around the solid bones of the existing house, using reclaimed timber and stone from the site, this contemporary coastal property in one of Wollongong’s most prized northern suburbs was designed with eco-friendliness front of mind.

The passive heating and cooling features include a 7 kW solar system, strategic use of cross ventilation of fresh ocean breezes and polished concrete floors that stay cool in summer but drink sunshine in for slow release on winter nights.

Currently a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home, there’s potential for conversion to a fourth, and the floor plan accommodates a range of experiences.

“There’s a bathroom to every bedroom, so family members can enjoy complete privacy when they need it,” Ian says.

“At the same time, there’s a lounge room upstairs and downstairs and plenty of other spaces to converge in, so the family can come together when they want.”

Multiple outdoor entertainment areas include a north-facing courtyard with beautiful stonework, landscaping and a covered hardwood timber deck for year-round al fresco entertaining. Drenched in sunshine, it invites mulled wine by the firepit or cheese platters shared to the sounds of the waves crashing in.

Three private balconies, each with its own beach and mountain aspect, offer more intimate escapes.

“The views are all outstanding from this home. It’s close enough to see what’s happening at the beach, but far enough to enjoy privacy. You can see what the surf’s like in detail, and you could practically reach out and touch the paragliders as they sail past the balconies,” Ian says.

“The views are constantly changing depending on the weather, time of day, time of year … You can stand just about anywhere in the house, look out the window and watch it all happen.”

The spacious kitchen comes with high-quality Bosch appliances including a 900 mm oven, induction cooktop and dishwasher, series eight Bosch washing machine and series eight heat pump dryer. From the kitchen and the adjoining dining and lounge areas, enjoy uninterrupted views of Stanwell Park Beach, the lagoon, the park and the Illawarra escarpment.

Clever use of aspect and high windows ensure abundant natural light throughout the home.

Other useful additions include two thoughtfully located split-system air conditioning units for optimal climate control, a high-quality water heater, space for four cars including a spacious double garage and additional outdoor parking, as well as EV charging in the garage to ensure energy efficiency and cost savings.

There’s also an outside shower to warm up after an early morning surf or swim, in one of the most beautiful beach destinations NSW has to offer.

Number 18 Seaview Crescent, Stanwell Park is open for inspection on Saturday 6 April from noon to 12:30 pm and goes to auction on Saturday 4 May at 3 pm. For more information contact Ian Pepper of Ray White on 0403 570 041.
