House of the Week
A manicured 2628sqm allotment hosts this architect-designed brick built residence, luxuriating in a gloriously private, leafy cul-de-sac setting with escarpment views to Brokers Nose.
Its dual levels of north-facing in/outdoor living comprise casual and formal rooms with access to the full-width entertainers' balcony.
This north-facing balcony overlooks the tranquil, fully landscaped backyard.
The handsome formal lounge and separate dining is ideal for relaxation or entertaining guests while there is a versatile fifth bedroom or study.
The downstairs rumpus/teen retreat provides ideal guest accommodation that opens to sprawling level lawns, an in-ground pool and powered cabana.
The oversized bedrooms, master with ensuite, walk-in robe and balcony access will delight the home owners.
The kitchen is amazing with gas cooktop, island bench and all the space you could dream of.
Other features include split-system air conditioning to keep you comfortable all year round and a wood-burning fireplace.
The generous setback of the house from the street behind the detached double garage means blissful privacy.
This fine property is surrounded by quality homes in one of Wollongong's prestige family pockets, just two minutes to Balgownie village and 10 minutes to pristine beaches and the CBD.
It enjoys a blue-ribbon lifestyle close to parks and elite schools and is only 60 minutes by car to Sydney.
