From picturesque Seven Mile Beach and Crooked River out to Coolangatta Mountain and the hinterlands beyond, 6A Headland Drive, Gerroa captures sweeping views from its enviable vantage point.

Selling agent Ryan Stalgis of First National Coast & Country says the semi-detached Torrens-title duplex has been designed to take full advantage of its spot on one of the suburb’s highest points opposite the Kingsford Smith lookout.

“The expansive outlook has to be the standout feature of this incredible home. Because of its elevated position, it offers panoramic ocean and national park views from both levels,” he says.

The hub of the home is on the first floor where the lovely kitchen, with its stone benchtops and dishwasher, leads to the open-plan dining and living area, which flows out to an adjoining balcony.

This floor, which also hosts the home’s three bedrooms, the bathroom with its free-standing bathtub and the north-facing backyard, is where the residents will do most of their living – amid the sounds of the surf.

The courtyard has a paved area with a grassy area and plenty of room for a barbecue. “It’s at the back of the house, north-facing, so not only is it very private, it’s a beautiful spot to enjoy a quiet breakfast while you soak up the winter sun,” Ryan says.

“That’s if you can pull yourself away from the incredible views at the front.”

But it’s the upper level that boasts the jewel in the crown – next to the separate sitting area or study, a huge open terrace with staggering views from east to west that will take your breath away every time.

This fabulous alfresco entertainment area is the perfect space to relax and unwind as you watch the waves roll in.

“This is a great spot to sit with a coffee in the morning and watch the sun rise over Gerroa,” Ryan says.

“And from that same terrace, you can watch spectacular sunsets over the mountains in the evenings. So you get sunrises, sunsets, ocean and national park – you’re spoiled for choice.”

Luxury finishes throughout the home include bi-fold stacker doors to drink in the ocean breeze, gorgeous stone tiles and ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning for year-round comfort. On the ground floor is a double-car garage with plenty of storage.

This home caters to diverse experiences, where the new owners can host friends and family on the spacious terrace or take the night off and visit the nearby Fisherman’s Club for dinner and drinks.

The property is only a few minutes’ drive from the beautiful coastal village of Gerringong, with its charming shops and cafes, award-winning wineries, coastal walks and picturesque seaside golf course.

“Gerroa is located just to the south of Gerringong, which is itself a small seaside village, and one of the few places to retain that kind of small-town charm whilst only 90 minutes south of Sydney,” Ryan says.

“It’s what makes it such a popular destination as an investment, holiday home or weekender – a good distance to feel like you’re getting away from it all, but still doable in a weekend.

“The Gerroa Peninsula is surrounded by the ocean on one side and the rolling green pastures on the other, with national parks to the southwest, so there’s minimal scope for further development, and it’s quite tightly held. That’s a big part of the appeal, and what has developed here as a result is a lovely little community that anyone would be lucky to share in.”

Bright, fresh and aesthetically pleasing throughout, this home will also appeal to down-sizers and sea changers looking for a home with nothing that needs doing.

“You can back up the truck, move straight in, put your feet up and enjoy the coastal lifestyle and stunning views on offer.”

The price guide for 6A Headland Drive, Gerroa is $2 million to $2.2 million. An inspection will take place this Saturday 23 March from 1:45 to 2:15 pm. For more information call Ryan Stalgis of First National Coast & Country on 0423 593 149.
