For a front-row ticket to the perpetually beautiful show of Woonona Beach, you can’t go past 6 Beach Drive, Woonona.

Situated on 500 sqm along one of the most highly prized stretches of coastline, the location is the prize attraction of this absolute beachfront property, but the home itself has much to offer.

The grand layout, with its captivating, free-flowing dual-level design, heroes the main lounge where expansive glass windows and doors flood the interiors with light and frame uninterrupted ocean views.

It never fails to impress, according to the selling agent, McGrath Thirroul’s Vanessa Denison-Pender.

“One of the stand-out features is the view from Woonona Point all the way down to Bellambi Point. It’s an all-encompassing point-to-point view that very few homes have,” she said.

“It certainly has a real wow factor.”

The home is a true entertainer’s delight, starting from the Caesarstone kitchen with high-end Miele appliances and a 900 mm gas stove, integrated fridge, dishwasher and a five-metre island bench. This leads to the dining and lounge rooms, which in turn step onto the front balcony overlooking the beach.

All four generously sized bedrooms and living areas in the main house offer access to multiple outdoor entertaining areas, including verandahs and porches both front and back and the sparkling Bionizer chlorine-free inground pool with an outdoor shower.

The top-floor master suite includes an enormous walk-in robe and modern ensuite, leading to a plantation shutter-enclosed balcony or sunroom out back. All three bedrooms at ground level have built-in cabinetry except one, which has a walk-in robe and ensuite.

Another stand-out feature is the spacious self-contained lofted one-bedroom apartment that boasts its own private entrance and access to the adjoining pool area. This provides a lucrative short-stay income of $600 a night or additional space for in-laws, teenagers or guests.

“That apartment has a very popular client base with a lot of repeat bookings because the location is so spectacular,” Vanessa said.

“This is definitely one of those properties that lends itself to a variety of uses, whether it’s for an additional income stream or to accommodate multigenerational or blended families.”

The home’s basement offers garaging for five cars, an abundance of storage and internal access. Other luxury features include Limestone floors, split system air conditioning throughout and plantation shutters.

The home is a short walk to Woonona’s Olympic-sized ocean pool, Nicholson Park playground, Woonona village, schools, public transport and popular eateries, and a short drive from the vibrant village of Thirroul, 15 minutes into Wollongong CBD and just over an hour from Sydney’s CBD.

This home has a price guide of $5.8 million, with nothing to do but move straight in and enjoy a lifestyle that’s second to none.

6 Beach Drive, Woonona is open for inspection Saturday 2 December from 10 am to 10:30 am and Wednesday 6 December from 5 pm to 5:30 pm. The auction is scheduled for Saturday 16 December at 10:30 am. For more information call Vanessa Denison-Pender of McGrath Thirroul on 0488 443 174.
