A private, peaceful property with expansive, uninterrupted views, in a great location.
A modern classic Australian country home, Scarborough, set in the foothills of the Jamberoo Valley, enjoys tranquil views over gently rolling countryside out to the Pacific Ocean. This very private, peaceful Strongbuild home has been built with incredible attention to detail.
Tucked at the end of a private driveway, in an exclusive enclave, the home offers gracious living in a low-maintenance setting. Enjoy sea breezes in the summer and be protected from westerly winds in autumn and winter. This home enjoys the perfect north-north-east aspect.
Varieties of florals and citrus trees perfume the lawned gardens around the home. Birdlife abounds. The terraced gardens below are planted with a mixture of bottlebrush and other native shrubs together with south coast rainforest trees. All gardens are irrigated.
A sealed bitumen private driveway meanders its way through the lush green paddocks to the front door.
Once inside, the magnificent open-plan lounge/dining/kitchen area is the focus of this lifestyle experience. Multiple full-length windows and doors embrace the unparalleled rural and ocean views. The 3 metre high ceilings, wide hallway, finely crafted cabinetry, Travertine and polished brushbox floors, Carrara marble benchtops, wood-burning combustion fireplace and C-Bus automated lighting and sound system underline the quality and attention to detail in this home.
Suited as either a permanent residence or as a weekender, Scarborough is a 90 min drive to Sydney and just 10 mins to local shops, cafes, golf course and the famous Jamberoo Pub with bistro and live music. Kiama beaches are 20 mins away. Enjoy local produce from the Farmers Markets on a Wednesday and the Growers and Craft markets on weekends.
