Architecturally designed sophistication personifies this beautifully presented home on a large 501 sqm block in a quiet, family-friendly street. Built three years ago by award-winning GN Williams custom homes (South Coast Homes), this tri-level property is well appointed in every respect and there is absolutely nothing to do. The elevated outlook brings in the sunshine and ocean breeze created by clever cross ventilation, which is evident as soon as you enter the property.
Quality fittings and fixtures throughout the home complement a practical commonsense design. An open plan kitchen/dining/lounge room occupies the lower level, peacefully overlooking an expansive level lawn. There is room for play equipment and/or an in-ground pool, without compromising the undercover BBQ and dining space.
The heart of the home is the kitchen, offering a splendid concrete countertop island bench with inset timber invisible cupboards, creating a practical design suited to family living. Top of the range appliances include a Miele dishwasher and Smeg oven, induction cooktop and rangehoood. Walk through the pantry to a perfectly designed laundry leading to the washing line.
A parents’ retreat occupies the central level, guaranteeing sanctuary. Lie in bed listening to the waves. With an ensuite bathroom and walk-in robe, both with generous storage, you will have a place for everything and everything in its place. On the top floor, three more bedrooms, all with solid built-in wardrobes, sit alongside a family room/home office (NBN ‘fibre to the premises’ connected) and a stunning bathroom with laundry chute.

The home is equidistant from Shellharbour South Beach and “The Farm” (Killalea) Beach, the street’s namesake.
This property meets a Liveability Features Appraisal in conjunction with the CSIRO, which means it has features to reduce home running costs, increase comfort and provide connection to a vibrant local community.
The property is in an ultra-convenient location: the new Waterfront town centre is a short stroll or cycle away, with supermarket, bakery, barber, bottle shop, dentist, cafes, restaurants and many more amenities to come. An extensive network of well-maintained bike paths allows children to ride safely to the local school, playgrounds and shops.
