Located just a few streets away from the bustling Waterfront Marina, 28A Cowries Avenue in Shell Cove could rest on the laurels of its superb location – but it doesn’t.

Its unique architecture alone is a stand-out feature of this executive Torrens title townhouse, according to the selling agent, Bullman Real Estate principal Peter Bullman.

“It’s a very impressive structure in both its design and choice of materials. You have polished concrete floors and walls as well as clever use of timber throughout,” he says.

“It’s edgy, modern, industrial and very chic. I haven’t come across anything like it in a while.”

From the high-raked ceilings to the open-plan layout, the home impresses with its towering dimensions and contemporary aesthetic. Though a duplex townhouse that shares a wall on one side, the home is flooded in areas with an unusual amount of natural light owing to one of its key features – a massive void in the centre reaching from the floor to the second storey.

Offering three spacious bedrooms, the main bedroom features a walk-in robe, a designer ensuite and a private balcony oasis with solid timber eaves where the new owners can enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in the mornings.

Another stand-out feature is the custom-designed main bathroom, which is the perfect place to soak away the pressures of the day.

“You only have to walk through to see that no expense has been spared in the construction of this home – everything has been done to exacting standards with high-quality materials and functionality in mind,” Peter says.

“There’s absolutely nothing left to do but what in and enjoy.”

The kitchen is the true heart of the home. Naturally lit by the central void and complete with polyurethane cabinetry, stone bench tops and an oversized island bench all accompanied and complimented by quality appliances, it will make cooking delicious dinners a joy for the home chef.

This kitchen leads to the open-plan living area, which flows seamlessly to the outdoor space via the stackable doors. This boasts a north-easterly aspect, which covers the ample grassed yard and entertainment area in the sunshine and natural light, making it the ideal alfresco area to enjoy a cheese platter and a glass of chilled wine.

The property also has double lock-up garaging with internal entry.

A short stroll away, the Marina serves as a picturesque backdrop with a buzzing array of restaurants, cafes, bars and shopping options, complemented by well-maintained social spaces, including a timber boardwalk. Crowne Plaza Hotel is set to open in 2025, earmarking the area for further growth and activity.

Shell Cove is considered a family-friendly suburb of the Shellharbour area, with Killalea Regional Park, a choice of multiple beaches, The Links golf course, Shellharbour Village, Shell Cove Public School, Shellharbour Junction Train Station, Stocklands Shopping Centre and Movie Precinct all close by.

“Despite the pressure that interest rates are putting on the housing market, Shell Cove remains one of the high dollar value areas in the Illawarra region and continues to go from strength to strength,” Peter says.

“It’s got everything you need and is the kind of destination you go to and never want to leave.”

When you want to get out and stretch your legs, the suburb is conveniently well connected, with Wollongong located only 22 km away, Kiama eight minutes and Jamberoo Action Park 15 minutes. The new Shellharbour Airport in Albion Park is a short distance away, providing easy access to the southern suburbs of Sydney in about an hour.

28A Cowries Avenue, Shell Cove is open for inspection this Saturday (16 December) at 11:15 am. For more information call Peter Bullman on 0401 394 394.
