Top auction for flagship
This weekend will be significant for Belle Property Wollongong, as one of its 2014 flagship listings goes under the hammer.
The elegant and contemporary 2 Norman Street, Mangerton, will go to auction tomorrow at midday at the Belle Auction Room in Wollongong's Chifley Hotel.
The auction will be conducted by award-winning auctioneer Damien Cooley, well-known for performing the winning auction on television's The Block in 2012 and 2004.
Belle Property Wollongong principal Darren Kay is expecting the sale to set a record price, not only for the suburb but also for the region for a non-beachfront property.
Mr Kay said he had taken 160 groups through the property during the six-week sales campaign with a final inspection scheduled for today.
Set on 2238 square metres of private and fully landscaped grounds, the home has sweeping views of the city and coastline and it is positioned in a cul-de-sac.
It has five large bedrooms, four bathrooms, a triple-car garage, a customised media room with a projector, and an infinity pool.
The property is open for inspection today from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.
For all the family
A six-bedroom dual-level home at Port Kembla will go to auction today with a price guide of more than $795,000.
With coastal views, the family home at 20 Anzac Way has a mix of indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces featuring luxury inclusions.
The home is set on a 634-square metre block.
Listed with Jordan Andonovski, of McGrath Real Estate Wollongong, the home's features include an open-plan living and dining area, formal lounge room and a separate study or possible sixth bedroom, generous upstairs rumpus retreat, all-weather outdoor entertaining pavilion, heated swimming pool and double lock-up garage.
Mr Andonovski said the home was highly desirable for families because it didn't need any work done to it and was set in a popular beachside location, surrounded by other quality properties.
It will go to auction today at 12.45pm.
Lounging in the sun
A four-bedroom home at Horsley with a sunny northern aspect is on the market for offers above $435,000.

The property will be open for inspection today from 11am to 11.30am.
Mr Piacentin has another new listing this week - a two-bedroom apartment at 4/55-57 Church Street, in North Wollongong.
On the market for offers above $440,000, the apartment is positioned in a full-security building with lift access and a lock-up garage.
