Entertainers will love the sprawling north-facing terrace overlooking the magnificent pool and beyond to the Illawarra escarpment.

This recently renovated home at 33 Hilltop Avenue Wollongong is an entertainer’s delight with open plan living spaces flowing out to the partially covered alfresco area that’s been designed for year-round use.

Selling agent Alex Duncan from Di Jones Real Estate, said the outdoor ceiling fans, and blinds kept the 8.1 x 4.1 metre zone cool in summer, while the northerly aspect made the most of the winter sun.

“The deck is an extension of the upstairs living space and a real feature of this property. The beautiful views over Mount Keira and Bulli just go on and on,” he said.

“Entertainers are absolutely going to love it. You can’t not love entertaining out there. It’s actually better than photos – it’s incredible.”

The renovated dual level home is immaculately presented inside and out, with a private inground pool and cosy timber gazebo creating another relaxing retreat for family and friends to enjoy.

Over the past four or five years, a brand-new kitchen has been installed and both bathrooms have been fully renovated.

“The full remodel has created a family’s dream kitchen, with stone benches, induction cooktop and loads of storage,” Alex said.

The oversized primary bathroom servicing the two upstairs bedrooms, and the downstairs bathroom catering for bedroom three and the large rumpus room, are both stylish, with floor to ceiling tiling in neutral tones.

Alex said with three bedrooms and potential to create a fourth, the home was ideally suited to families, downsizers or executives seeking a spacious home with a flexible floor plan.

The light-filled rumpus room opens onto a north-facing porch and could be used as a teenage retreat, home gym or office. With a bedroom alongside, plus a bathroom, the area can be closed off from the rest of the house providing a private domain for in-laws or guests. With a separate entry, it also has potential for use as a small business or studio.

The home is on a no through road and Alex said it was very quiet and secluded.

“It’s a well established street and the only people driving past are your neighbours,” he said.

“It’s a really exclusive and tightly held area that can’t be built out. I only know of two homes that have sold in the street in the last 12 to 18 months.”

Located high on the hill with escarpment views to the front and a bush garden outlook screening neighbours at the rear, Alex said the home was very private and was “effectively a Mangerton address, without the Mangerton price tag”.

“There’s another beautiful, elevated garden deck in the backyard that takes in the views. It feels like there are no neighbours behind. It’s a really private and peaceful spot,” he added.

The first couple of inspections have seen families commenting on the spacious and flexible floor plan and the views.

“There’s so much to love about this home,” Alex added.

A carport, workshop and storage room provide space for vehicles and all the family toys. The home is air-conditioned and has ceiling fans, and solar panels to make the most of the sunny position.

Located just five minutes from the Wollongong CBD, the home provides easy access to the university, schools and hospital, making it ideal for family or executive living. The nearby pathway to Collen Grove and Rowland Avenue provides access to transport and schools.

“It could also suit young-at-heart downsizers that don’t necessarily want to be in an apartment or townhouse,” Alex said.

Alex said the home, with a price tag of $1.45 million, was in one of Wollongong’s best kept secret locations.

“This truly is an amazing opportunity so close to everything the city has to offer.”
