Just steps away from the pristine Shellharbour North Beach, you’ll fall asleep to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore and wake to the sun rising over the ocean at 52 Wollongong Street in Shellharbour.
This standalone fully refurbished turnkey has attracted a lot of interest from Sydney buyers looking for a holiday home, but its location and low-maintenance lifestyle make it ideal for just about anyone according to the selling agent, Stone Real Estate Illawarra’s Aaron Dean.
He said the views of the ocean and playground stretching from the sitting room to the dining room, kitchen and outdoor balcony area offer more than breathtaking views.
“Next door is the Shellharbour Surf Lifesaving Club, so people with kids can literally watch them at the playground or swimming between the flags from the comfort of home,” he said.
“Here, the beach becomes your backyard.”
Built in 2013 and renovated just last year, the home boasts a luxury coastal aesthetic throughout, from marble benchtops to the state-of-the-art kitchen and hardwood flooring.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom floor plan includes an impressive main bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite complete with twin vanities, and access to the lovely sunroom on the ground floor, which overlooks both the ocean and the recently upgraded playground.
The stand-out feature of the home is the upstairs alfresco area, which was originally uncovered and open but can now be enclosed courtesy of glass stacker doors. Combined with clerestory windows, this stunning space bathes in natural light year-long.
“In summer, you can stack the doors and sip some wine in fully open, covered alfresco space, or enjoy a cuppa in the morning as the waves roll in. In winter you can close those doors up and never lose sight of that wonderful view and sounds of the surf,” Aaron said.
“It doesn’t matter the weather – come rain or shine, this is a spectacular room to spend time in.
“At the right time of the year, this sometimes becomes the perfect spot from which to spot whales.”
Other features of this beautiful home include ducted air conditioning, 7.5 kW solar panels plus additional battery storage in the double lock-up garage, which has internal access.
The home is located on the renowned Wollongong Street, an easy five-minute walk to the bustling coastal vibe and convenient amenities of Shellharbour Village, including boutique shops, gourmet dining restaurants, playgrounds, Shellharbour pools and vibrant entertainment options. The home is close to local schools, and less than a five-minute drive away you’ll find Shellcove Marina precinct or Stocklands Shellharbour.
A 22-minute drive will bring you to Wollongong CBD and it’s about 15 minutes to Kiama and about 1.5 hours to Sydney CBD.
Aaron said putting aside the recent unprecedented surges in coastal house prices, values in the area have consistently performed exceedingly well.
“If you look at prices year-on-year, you can see values in this area appreciate massively. In terms of capital growth, it would only take a few years to reap the benefits of owning a home like this,” he said.
The auction for 52 Wollongong Street, Shellharbour is set for Thursday 7 December at 6 pm and the property will be open for inspections on Sunday 26 November from 10:30 am to 11 am. For more information, contact Stone Real Estate Illawarra’s Aaron Dean on 0450 514 474.
