A prestigious home on the NSW South Coast boasting "fantastic" views to the ocean and migrating whale pods is on the market, with a price tag well above $4 million.
Backing onto the oceanfront at the most easterly point in Kiama, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is set on 607 square metres.
The home, located at 39 Tingira Crescent, Kiama has a price guide between $4.4 million and $4.8 million.
According to CoreLogic, the property previously sold in 2011 for $1,210,000.
Sellers, Bill Brock and husband Dean Grant previously lived in Sydney, and had a weekender at Gerroa which they sold to surfer Sally Fitzgibbonsin 2010.
They had planned to permanently move to the Kiama area, though not until they had both retired.
"But this place came up, and we couldn't refuse what we saw, so we purchased it," Mr Brock said.
Mr Brock said when they bought the home, style-wise it needed some work - "every room was painted a different colour" - and it hadn't taken proper advantage of the views and outdoor areas.
"But we saw the potential that I think a lot of people didn't see," he said. "So we put a pool in and we spent quite a bit of money re-doing it, and making it indoor and outdoor friendly.
"The ocean views was the number one [reason they bought it]. The views are fantastic. Yesterday the dolphins were coming by, the day before we had probably 20-odd whales that we saw.
"You can sit on our balcony and look down to Jervis Bay, and you can look all the way up to Port Kembla."
The Kiama property has since become their full-time residence. Features include a stone fireplace, and four distinct outdoor entertaining spaces.
Also included is a fully furnished tiny house, which the current owners built three years ago.
It's proven to be a popular short-term holiday rental.
"It's a great little property for an added income, or it's a great retreat if you have teenagers, or as an office to work from home," Mr Brock said. "It's perfect for any of those."
Now retired, the couple are selling in order to be closer to family in Sydney.
"It could be a good property for a growing family, or if a family wants to have their parents live with them," Mr Brock said.
Selling agent Helena Crumpton from Stone Real Estate Illawarra said there had been both local and out of area interest in the home.
"It's a gorgeous property, and it's lovely to see what happens when people put their heart and soul into a property," she said.
"They've created their own little haven there, it's like its own little world. It's private and offers varied living options."
