With ocean views on one side and lush tranquillity on the other, vacation vibes hit every time you walk through the doors of this idyllic coastal home.

“Come home to a holiday” is a fitting tagline for this property. Situated on a 575 sq metre block just 200 metres from the yellow sands and blue waters of Kendalls Beach, 16 Holden Avenue offers the opportunity to capitalise on everything that makes this seaside location so special.

Indulge in the luxury of watching the waves crashing onto the shore from the comfort of the main bedroom, living room, kitchen and multiple outdoor spaces.

A true entertainer’s delight, the living area centres around the large open-plan Hamptons kitchen, which selling agent Terry Digger of First National Coast & Country says boasts the best aspect to the ocean in the house.

“From it, you have this picture frame view of the beach, which is quite spectacular,” he says.

Courtesy of cafe bifold windows it flows effortlessly out to a spacious entertainer’s deck, as does the living and dining area and the main bedroom, offering spectacular beach views from every space.

Entertainment options continue on the lower ground levels where summers can be spent sipping cocktails by the child-friendly pool, which includes an outdoor shower, under the covered patio or deck.

Terry says it all contributes to the “feel” that has been the main drawcard for people inspecting the home.

“People love the atmosphere of the house. It has a beautiful cottage feel. You walk in and you’re presented with this magnificent view of the ocean and it’s bathing in natural light,” he says.

“The property itself has a lot of character and has been beautifully renovated to enhance that.”

This includes crisp white surfaces, floorboards throughout, bifold doors to both front and back decks, verdant mature gardens and a serene koi fish pond.

The front design has achieved complete privacy from the street, including a verandah set up like a private oasis.

“The front of the house completely opens up to a verandah surrounded by lush gardens and soaked in afternoon sun,” Terry says.

“The sun streams through the front of the house, so there’s an indoor-outdoor set up at both ends of the house.”

Though billed as a three-bedroom, the floorplan includes a studio by the pool that could be used as a home office, teenage study space or pool room, and a generous rumpus room to the lower ground, which opens onto the covered patio and pool.

“This would be a great space to host guests or convert into a studio, ‘she-shed’ or ‘man cave’,” Terry says.

Other useful features include air conditioning, 8.3 kW solar panels and a carport with two spaces.

Encapsulating South Coast living, this home is surrounded by the best Kiama has to offer including spectacular beaches, rock pools, coastal walks, markets, cafes, restaurants, bars and the relaxed lifestyle that sea-changers are chasing.

“We’ve had people looking at it as a potential holiday home, others as a seaside downsizing option and of course families,” Terry says.

“Being close to Berry and Jamberoo, Kiama is one of those beautiful seaside locations that has maintained its country coastal charm. It’s where farmland meets the ocean, and in the past four or five years, it’s really come into its own.”

The price guide on 16 Holden Avenue, Kiama is $2,100,000 to $2,300,000.

It is open for inspection on Saturday 1 July from 10:45 am to 11:15 am.

For more information or to arrange a private inspection contact Terry Digger on 0417 760 669 or Abbey Murphy on 0423 596 724.
