In all her years in the real estate business, Laurie Johnston of McGrath has never seen views like those afforded by most rooms at 30 Elanora Road, Kiama Heights.

Past a stunningly landscaped entry, it seems no matter where you stand in this near-new residence, unobstructed views of the dramatic coastline and serene green rural hills are optimised by visionary architecture and the master build.

“As soon as you top the stairs, you’re in awe, watching those waves crashing on the rocks of Loves Bay,” she says.

“The position of the property is really rare – it sits where east meets west, so you watch the sunrise as you sip a coffee, or sit by the gas fireplace with a glass of red wine and watch the sun go down.

“I have frankly never seen a view like it – it’s stunning.”

The heart of the home is in the open plan living, dining and kitchen area with its floor-to-ceiling windows, next to the epic outdoor covered al fresco terrace. Here the new owners can share their slice of paradise with intimate gatherings or enjoy quiet relaxation time.

Though a dip in the ocean awaits steps from the property border, the views can be turned into a silent movie with the close of a door.

“It’s a demonstration of the quality of the home, and really quite remarkable. You’re next to a roaring ocean, but with the doors closed it’s totally silent, and absolutely captivating,” Laurie says.

“Though you’re right on top of the ocean, it’s so well thought out and insulated that you’re well protected from the elements, even out on the terrace.”

This superior workmanship and luxury is evident throughout, with a lift that takes you up from the garage to the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home. Bathing in natural light and with high ceilings, it has been designed for ideal single-level living.

“It’s ultimate contemporary coastal living but also very low-maintenance, so we’ve had a lot of interest from down-sizers and or people looking for a ‘lock and leave’ weekender,” Laurie says.

The good-sized bedrooms include a master suite, where you can simply lift your head off the pillow to see the surf. This room also includes an enormous walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and a luxurious ensuite with a freestanding bath, in which you can soak and take in the spectacular ocean views.

The bespoke kitchen has high-end finishes throughout, quality appliances including Miele ovens, an integrated dishwasher, a walk-in pantry and of course, those endless ocean views.

Clever designs extend the ocean vistas to the sauna and sparkling solar-heated pool out back.

“It’s really quite amazing the way the architect has done it; you can be soaking in the sauna or pool and there’s this perfect window to the crashing waves,” Laurie says.

“This courtyard offers immediate access through a gate to one of Australia’s most scenic walks – the Kiama Coastal Walk.

“So, pool and sauna, ocean dip or coastal walk, you have a variety of outdoor experiences all steps away from the home.”

Other useful features include remote-controlled blinds, the double car garage behind a European-made door, endless storage and space under the house offering the potential for further expansion.

The price guide on this home is $4 million.

Located on a 740 sqm block in a tightly held, blue-chip cul-de-sac just minutes from Kiama and Gerringong and under an hour from the famous crystal white sands of Hyams Beach, only a relocation closer to the family could lure the owners from this remarkable property.

“They have loved living here, and now it’s ready for the next owners looking for an unparalleled lifestyle in one of NSW’s most beautiful destinations,” Laurie says.

Number 30 Elanora Road, Kiama Heights is open for inspection each Saturday at 2 pm until Saturday 4 May with a 5:15 pm auction and a 30-minute viewing prior. For more information call Laurie Johnston of McGrath on 0437 468 049.
