Some homes cannot be captured in photos – you have to see them for yourself. Such is the case with number 1 Dalys Court, Coledale, according to the selling agent, Ray White Helensburgh’s Mattias Samuelsson.
“Everyone who has come through so far has commented that photos don’t do this place justice. They don’t capture the feel of the home, and the views cannot be communicated in images,” he says.
“Everyone who has seen it so far has been blown away, and they’re glad they came to check it out in person.”
Perched in an elevated spot in its blue-chip northern suburbs location, this stunning architectural residence takes in panoramic views down the coast, offering a tranquil oasis within walking distance from the pristine local beaches and cafes.
Spectacular as the views and lifestyle are, Mattias says the location is not the only thing that makes this home sing.
“The design of the home itself really stands out – it’s not your typical project home you’re seeing a lot of these days. It has a lot of character,” he says.
“Through the use of wood and natural finishes, high ceilings and a lot of large windows, the home is sympathetic to its environment. It almost feels like you’re in a treehouse,” he says.
“The current owner has fully renovated this home. Now they are looking to downsize, leaving it on the market for someone to simply move in and enjoy – all the hard work’s done.”
Surrounded by decks and verandahs with ocean and escarpment vistas, the living room is the heart of the home. Completely open plan, it sits by the dining room and the stylishly renovated kitchen, which contains a large Ilve oven, AEG gas stove, stone benchtops, breakfast bar and, of course, picturesque ocean views.
This in turn flows seamlessly onto a private entertaining deck complete with electric shutters, making it a true entertainer’s dream.
“The living room also has a fireplace, so you could sit back on those cold winter nights with a glass of wine and watch the waves rolling in. And the back deck is the perfect space for having a barbecue with the family on those warmer summer days,” Mattias says.
“I can see the new owners spending a lot of time on the balcony and other outdoor spaces, taking in the amazing views and listening to the sounds of the surf.
“The home is elevated and open on three sides, so you get plenty of natural light and can see all the way down the coast to the sparkling lights of Wollongong.”
This property offers three bedrooms, including an oversized main bedroom set on its own level. An ideal parents’ retreat, it features a spacious ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and serene outlook to the garden with the deep blue ocean backdrop.
Adaptable to a growing family, the ground floor offers a separate studio with a bathroom opposite, which could be perfect as a teenager’s retreat, home office, art studio or relaxation area.
The 607 sq metre block includes mature gardens and separate carports for two vehicles.
In the prized community of Coledale, Dalys Court is a particularly tightly held and highly sought-after street, only steps from Coledale Beach, the rockpool, bushland, fantastic cafes, parks, schools, shops and a 15-minute walk along the beach to the popular Headlands Hotel.
Though Coledale is a place you’ll rarely want to leave, the bus stop and train station are only a short walk from the front door, south Sydney is but an hour’s drive away and Wollongong CBD north just 30 minutes away.
