A Queenslander-style home built at the turn of the last century, and now positioned opposite Coledale Beach, is on the market for the first time.
The home at 57 Squires Crescent, Coledale, was built more than 100 years ago in Sydney’s eastern suburbs as an original prison warden’s cottage.
The owner, who bought the Coledale property in 1998, had the historic cottage transported from Sydney on a truck and it was then repositioned on the Squires Crescent block.
The three-bedroom home underwent meticulous restoration and extension works carried out by the Sydney-based Alvaro Bros Builders.
The property, listed with agents Trever Molenaar and Kristine Morgan, of McGrath Real Estate Wollongong and Thirroul, will be auctioned on site on Saturday, November 30, at 10.30am.
Mr Molenaar said it was the perfect holiday home featuring two sleep-out areas, which were ideal for extra family holiday accommodation.
‘‘The property is virtually on the beach with beautiful ocean views from the whole eastern side of the home,’’ he said.
‘‘It has big open windows and wide wrap-around verandahs, which showcase the views.’’
Mr Molenaar said the property, set on a 734-square-metre block, was situated on a large level maintained yard.
The home’s other features include high ceilings, an alarm system, a wood-burning fireplace, light-filled family room and double garage.
According to Australian Property Monitors, Coledale’s median house price is $729,000.
The home is open for inspection on Saturday from 9.30am to 10am and this Wednesday from 10am to 10.30am.
