Two things will strike visitors inspecting 14 Belwarra Avenue, Figtree: the comprehensive, high-quality renovation that makes it a true turnkey, and an impression that you’ve come home.
Selling agent David Greenwood of Molenaar x McNeice says pictures don’t do the property justice – you have to see it in the flesh.
“The instant you walk in, you get this sense of home – it’s a hard thing to explain,” he says.
“People who visit find a beautiful home in a beautiful spot, close to good schools with the lifestyle everyone wants.
“For the new owner, it’ll be like moving into a new home – everything has been completely renovated, there’s not a single thing left to do but enjoy it.”
Timber panelling, sleek floating timber floors and a fresh nude, grey and white palette bring a Hamptons-inspired aesthetic throughout the four-bedroom, three-bathroom split-level contemporary retreat.
Beginning from the formal entry, you’ll find an oversized lounge room complete with a corner fireplace to keep things cosy in the cooler weather.
This flows seamlessly into the eat-in kitchen with its stone benchtops and beautiful porcelain farmhouse sink.
The kitchen, in turn, opens up to an impeccable, covered al fresco dining area with louvre shutters and a stunning heated pool that will undoubtedly see many joyous gatherings of friends and family.
“The quality of this home hits you from the front and continues to wow throughout, but the outdoor area is a real showstopper,” David says.
“When the lounge flows to the kitchen and dining to the outdoor spaces like this, it becomes a day-night entertainer; people can enjoy socialising both inside and outside.
“I can see the new owners throwing summer pool parties and enjoying wine and a barbecue by the fantastic pool area.
“The way they’ve designed it is very private, and the yard is also relatively flat, which is a rare thing to find in Figtree.”
Though the property is an entertainer’s delight, the floor plan equally allows for tranquillity and privacy. The lower level contains its own oversized living space, study and bathroom.
“This can be completely closed off, making it an ideal teenagers retreat or space for the in-laws or guests,” David says.
“It’s a very versatile floor plan.”
Mountain views are captured from various vantage points in the home, including the main bedroom, which comes complete with a walk-in wardrobe and large ensuite with a corner tub, drenched in natural light courtesy of skylights.
“The way the home is positioned and designed, you get plenty of natural light flowing throughout it at all times of day,” David says.
“This is a really well designed home and it feels really lovely to be in.”
Other desirable features include a 10.9 kW solar system, ducted air conditioning, a PowerStore hot water system and a double lock-up garage with internal access.
The home is at a sought-after Figtree location, close to parks, Figtree Grove shops, cafes, The Illawarra Grammar School and the Wollongong CBD, with public transport and Nareena Hills Public School only footsteps away.
David says the suburb is widely viewed as an up-and-coming alternative to the increasingly busy northern suburbs for people who want the conveniences of having the city nearby but without sacrificing the peace of suburban family living.
“We’re seeing a lot of interest from out-of-area buyers and not just Sydney – there’s demand from Bathurst, Wagga, Albury and so on,” he says.
“They’ve pinpointed Figtree as being a location not too far south, which has schools with great reputations and proximity to public transport, shops, beaches and the CBD itself, while maintaining the appeal of a quiet family suburb.”
The auction guide for this property is $1,200,000.
14 Belwarra Avenue, Figtree is open for inspection on Saturday 13 January from 12:30 pm to 1 pm and goes to auction on Thursday 1 February from 5:30 pm. For more information call David Greenwood of Molenaar x McNeice on 0422 834 671.
