A recognisable, Insta-worthy Coledale property boasting a healthy amount of cacti has been snapped up.
The two-bedroom cottage, known locally as 'Cactus House' is located at 17 Cater Street, Coledale.
It recently sold at auction to a Sydney buyer for an undisclosed sum.
Sellers, Luke Fordyce and Anna Heyligers, bought the home in 2016.
Mr Fordyce said while they replaced "literally everything in the house, on the house - windows, doors, floors, roof", they intended for the renovation to be sympathetic to the property's history.
"When we saw this house originally, it was a 1920s miner's cottage that had been a holiday house for over 10 years," Mr Fordyce said.
"We didn't try to modernise everything."
The couple's beach bungalow renovation was documented on Instagram via @thebungalow_coledale.
Mr Fordyce said a standout feature of the home was the abundance of cacti.
"There's about 10 cacti, and most people in Coledale call it 'Cactus House'," he said.
"We took a trip over to the States just after we bought this property. We went out to Palm Springs, and we just fell in love with the mid-century vibes out there, and all the cactus gardens, and how low maintenance they are.
"We figured that even though we live on the coast here, Australia's still pretty drought-ridden, so the cacti could do well in this kind of climate. They're flourishing, they're going nuts."
Mrs Heyligers owns and operates the Noel and Gladys lifestyle store in Thirroul.
Mr Fordyce said they planned to stay in the area and continue running the business.
However, he said they also had a new project in mind; to create eco-tourism accommodation at a yet to be determined location.
Selling agent, Trever Molenaar from Molenaar + McNeice said Coledale was proving to be an "ever-popular suburb with a small tight-knit community".
