A historic home at Jerrara is for sale, with a $3.5 million price tag.
'Park Mount', located at 82 Jerrara Road, Jerrara was recently listed for sale.
The original timber home, built in 1848 by the pioneering Colley family, is listed by The National Trust as a House of Significance.
The Colley family relocated from Ireland to Australia. William lived in the house, while one of his brothers, James, later became the first mayor of Kiama council.
The home's first renovation was in 1987, with the current owners completing a transformation in 2014-15, returning parts of the home to its original condition and completing extensions that move from the old to the stylish new.
Owners Rod and Jan Callaghan bought the property in 2001.
Sitting on just over an acre, the home features four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Mr Callaghan described doing the property up as being a "labour of love".
"We've restored the old homestead back to its former glory," he said.
"We brought it into the 21st Century," Mrs Callaghan said.
Those additions added a second master bedroom with travertine en-suite with access to the garden, a galley kitchen with Caesar Stone bench tops and walk-in pantry, a family and meals area and a lounge room with French doors to the stone north-facing terrace.
In addition to the property's history, the Callaghans were drawn to it by the 360-degree view from Jamberoo Valley escarpment to the Pacific Ocean.
The gardens, designed by landscaper Michael Cooke, have been featured in a number of national magazines and books, such as House and Garden, Home Beautiful and Country Style.
Other features include four working fireplaces and one gas fireplace.
The couple are now looking to downsize.
"We will probably stay in the area," Mrs Callaghan said. "It's been a pleasure and privilege to live here. I hope it goes to somebody who appreciates the history."
