A luxury waterfront apartment overlooking Shellharbour Beach is tipped to sell above $2 million when it goes to auction next month.
The three-bedroom residence at 2/2 Surf Road is one of the Rockpool Apartments, distinctive for their sweeping curved balconies and a textured sandstone-look exterior.
The Rockpool project, consisting of eight apartments, was completed in 2007 and was recognised at the 2008 Master Builders Association of NSW Excellence in Housing Awards.
The apartments were built sparing no expense, from the use of travertine flooring and Miele appliances throughout to the stone stairs used on the fire escape.
Located on what is dubbed in real estate as Shellharbour’s ‘‘golden mile’’, 2/2 Surf Road has a direct oceanfront position with 180-degree ocean and coastal views.
Listed with Carrie Bond of Belle Property Kiama, the apartment has an expansive open plan living/dining area which flows out to a covered terrace.
Ms Bond said the three spacious bedrooms included a master with walk-in robe and ensuite, luxuriously appointed in neutral tones.
The apartment’s features included a stunning entrance foyer, outdoor pool with shower facilities, over-sized two-car garaging, ample storage, security, and air conditioning.
Ms Bond said the apartment’s strongest selling point was its coastal aspect.
‘‘It has spectacular views from every room,’’ she said.
‘‘It would offer one of the best views along the South Coast, uninterrupted with headland as well as ocean views, and it’s positioning right on the beach makes it special.’’
She said the apartment’s proximity to Sydney by car, and its walking distance location to Shellharbour Village, gave it a high desirability factor.
The apartment will be open for inspection today from 11.30am to midday.
It will go to auction on Wednesday, August 6, at the Belle auction room in Wollongong’s Chifley Hotel.
