When it comes to hidden gems you rarely think of real estate, but First National Coast and Country Kiama have a new listing that certainly fits the bill.
Set on a private 1,949m2 block of land at Kiama Heights, this lovely home is set back from the road, which makes you feel like you are a world away from the hustle and bustle of town life, but only minutes from the convenience of Kiama and Easts Beach.
From the moment you walk through the double formal entrance doors, you realise the home has everything you could possibly need. Downstairs has a spacious kitchen with modern appliances, tiled floors and Caesar Stone benches. The dining room conveniently opens through to a massive pergola, while the sunlit rumpus room has cathedral ceilings and plantation shutters which in turn opens onto a sunny deck that makes the most of the northerly aspect. The carpeted formal dining and lounge area has venetian blinds and can easily become a private sanctuary through double doors, while the powder room, laundry and large home office could easily become a fifth bedroom. The double garage is also big enough to become a handy storage area. The wide stairs lead to a large upstairs area that can also be used as an open living area or just somewhere to get away from it all, while four bedrooms, three of which are doubles, all have built-in wardrobes, with the master bedroom also boasting a huge walk-in wardrobe and spacious ensuite. The three-way main bathroom makes the early morning rush seem like a breeze, while storage is absolutely no problem with a second linen press and handy laundry chute.
You can access the brand new upper deck from the master bedroom or the open living area and is highlighted by ocean or rural views.
There is space galore outside for the kids to play, with a backyard including a large shed, ideal for the home hobbyist or keen gardener, while the front yard has room galore if you would like to kick a football or even add a pool (STCA) and all this is offset by beautiful gardens that would delight any green thumb.
Another feature is that you can almost take a step back in time when you see the original dry-stone walls that line the northern boundary.
The home also has all the 'mod-cons' like NBN, air conditioning, solar panels to help with the rising electricity bills and a gate across the driveway for added privacy if you wish.
