Bordering a nature reserve and only a short walk to Austinmer Beach, nearly every window in this secluded hideaway offers a leafy green view. Elevated and perched at the end of a cul-de-sac, an inspection is a must to fully appreciate the sublime ambience.


Tucked away in a quiet street, the property has only one adjoining neighbour and borders Alan Park. A walking trail across the road provides a shortcut to the sands of Austinmer Beach, a 10-minute (approx.) walk from your door. Along the coastline enjoy lifestyle amenities including the iconic rock pool, Austinmer Surf Life Saving Club, playgrounds and cycleways.

The quaint and charming village precinct in Moore Street is also within a stroll and is where you'll find upmarket cafes to pick up a morning coffee. The township of Thirroul is nearby, brimming with further amenities such as retail outlets, supermarkets and services.

For your convenience, Austinmer Train Station is around the corner with direct links to both Sydney and Wollongong.


Presenting to the market for the first time in over 30-years, this solid residence is built with double brick and will stand the test of time. Fastidiously cared for and occupying 2 levels, modern updates blend in harmony with traditional features. High ceilings adorned with decorative cornices are showcased throughout, while a cosy fireplace, exposed brick highlights and timber flooring create an inviting sense of warmth.

A generous lounge spills out onto the full-width balcony which takes advantage of the wonderful view of the bushlands next door. Take a moment to listen to the sounds of the winds whispering through the trees and the local wildlife which includes over 80 species of birds and a variety of possums, wallabies and leaf-tailed geckos.

The dining room is flanked by the timber-style kitchen equipped with an eat-in breakfast bar. Lined by a row of windows, the sunroom is a tranquil space to unwind with a good book or stretch with some daily yoga. Accommodation comprises 2 palatial bedrooms, the master of which is fitted with a walk-in robe. Servicing the bedrooms is an elegant main bathroom.

Packed with storage galore, internal stairs descend to the lower floor where several multipurpose rooms can be adapted to suit your individual needs. And after your morning swim or run on the beach, relieve those tired muscles in the European sauna.

Other notable attributes of the property include a single remote garage with internal access, an adjoining carport for 1-2 cars, an internal laundry with a 2nd toilet, an external storeroom and a standalone shed. Situated on a substantial 696m2 (approx) allotment, the backyard is a wonderous backdrop that allows you to immerse yourself in nature and spans over 3 tiers.


A unique offering, this remarkable home delivers the best of both bush and beach living with the added benefits of having local conveniences within moments of your new home.
