Nestled among a couple of dozen tightly held homes on Kiama’s coveted Kaleula Head, it’s rare for a property like 1/7 Gwinganna Avenue, Kiama to hit the market.
Having worked in Kiama real estate for three decades, selling agent Steve Pryor from Raine & Horne can say that the home is in one of just a few “key spots” considered to be the creme de la creme of oceanfront locations.
“That spot, on that street is Kiama’s best address for waterfront buyers,” he says.
A palatial residence occupying the entire two top floors of this duplex coastal residence, the home’s design takes full advantage of this superlative location.
On the top floor, there’s a separate media room, perfect for hosting movie or sports nights. Here, the oversized kitchen, with its separate walk-in pantry flows into both the indoor dining room and covered al fresco dining space, which in turn flows out to an enormous terrace overlooking the big blue.
Architecturally designed with a clever use of floor-to-ceiling glass bifold doors, this space forms the indisputable heart of the home. Whether entertaining guests with wine and cheese or enjoying a quiet morning cuppa as you watch and listen to the sounds of the surf, it never fails to take your breath away.
“The idea is that it all opens up, and on a nice day, you’re basically inside and outside at the same time,” Steve says.
“When you’re sitting down, you feel like you’re quite literally sitting on the water.”
Breathtaking though they are, this home offers a lot more than panoramic views.
“The position of the home also provides good access to Kendalls Beach below,” Steve says. “You’re not just buying a view, but access to a pristine, patrolled beach.”
The home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The lavish main bedroom takes in the ocean vista and includes a “His Wardrobe” and a separate “Hers Walk-In Wardrobe”, as well as an ensuite bathroom and private “Juliet” balcony.
With a desirable north-facing aspect, the home enjoys abundant natural light year-round.
“In summer, you get a nice cooling breeze, and in winter, you get warming sunshine throughout the place,” Steve says.
Other key features include a private front courtyard, a fully landscaped level rear garden, and a private lift cavity already installed on the second floor.
A small separate apartment occupying the ground floor of this property is not included in the sale of the property. For this reason, the home comes with a price guide in the low $4 millions.
“This low price point is not normally what you would expect to pay for this prime location but it makes if affordable to the market,” Steve says.
“It’s the ideal spot for a ‘lock up and leave’ weekender, or for retirees who want space, but also something low maintenance.”
Close enough to the village centre to enjoy the vibe and convenience of the cafes, bars, restaurants, markets, spectacular beaches, rock pools and coastal walks, but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle, this home encapsulates the joys of South Coast living in one of Australia’s best seaside suburbs.
