Unique Farmborough Heights property on the market: photos


A house with a "unique design" at Farmborough Heights could be the ideal place for a large family to call home.

It has vaulted cathedral ceilings and recycled timber throughout, and agent Ben Linnehan, from Ray White Albion Park, said the rustic features made it stand out.

"It's a unique design - I haven't seen a similar sort of construction as far as the recycled timber, as far as the cathedral ceilings," he said.

"It's something we haven't come across a lot in the Illawarra. It seems to be attracting buyers looking for property that's not a standard, that's a little bit different."

The residence, at 180 Waples Road, has many other special touches, including a free-standing, claw-footed bath tub and leadlight windows in the main bathroom, and a combustion fireplace in the living area.

With five spacious bedrooms, including a main bedroom with an en suite and spa, the home has space for a big family.

"There's not too many homes on offer that can comfortably accommodate a large family," Mr Linnehan said.

As well as a separate study and a media-theatre room, the residence has multiple wrap-around decks and covered entertaining areas looking out to the ocean in the distance.

The kitchen features a La Germania gas oven.

The property is a 1648-square-metre block at the end of a cul-de-sac. It includes a garden with mature fruit-bearing trees and two off-street parking spaces.

The home has been recently repainted and recarpeted.

It is open for viewing between 12.30pm and 1pm on Saturday, and 5pm to 5.30pm on Wednesday. It goes to auction on May 13 at 5pm at the Albion Park RSL.
