The double garage, games room and bathroom downstairs also offer a separate entertaining space with internal access to the main home.

Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac this elevated property is located in what is perhaps one of the most sought after locations in the region. 

The architecturally-designed and master-built home was constructed in the 1960s and is on the market for the first time.

Agent, Dignam Real Estate licensee and director Adam McMahon said, “it’s better than a beachfront when you look at it”.

“You’ve got the most breathtaking views on the South Coast, that are never going to get built out,” he said.

“You’ve got complete northern exposure over Austi Beach and north all the way up the coast.

“Why I say it’s better than a beachfront is because if you buy a property in that area on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, obviously you’ve got to deal with the noise, and you don’t always get immediate beach access too.

“This property you’re set up high, there’s less issues with salt or exposure to the elements.

“So you’re getting a lovely view that’s uninterrupted. 

“The main thing is you’re not going to get a view like this – they’re so few and far between.”

Mr McMahon said the current owners were downsizing.

He said there had already been multiple offers on the property, with the majority of interest being from potential buyers living in the likes of Balmain, Bronte and near Sydney Harbour. 

Mr McMahon said it was “almost unheard of to get a house positioned so well where you get a full, exposed view with zero risk of it ever getting built out”.  

“They know a view like this is hard to beat, so a lot of the interest is coming out of Sydney from people who are looking to be owner/occupiers,” he said.
