A three-level luxury home with one of the best views on the New South Wales’ South Coast is looking for offers above $4 million.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom house at 5 Hillcrest Road in Austinmer, a northern village of Wollongong in the Illawarra region, is now being marketed for sale by Knight Frank’s Nathan Berlyn, after first hitting the market last year.

It is being sold by Wollongong’s Mortgage Success founders and owners Katrina and John Rowlands, who have owned it for more than two decades.

The 305sq m Austinmer house sits on a 626sq m block and has been designed across three levels, with a multitude of living and entertaining spaces, a four-car garage and a two-bedroom self-contained apartment incorporated into the floorplan.

The upper level, which has the kitchen and butler’s pantry and master suite, is the highlight of the home, boasting soaring pitched ceilings with exposed beams, stunning timber flooring, open plan living and expansive picture windows, revealing uninterrupted panoramic views of the ocean and coastline.

The two-bedroom self-contained apartment is on the middle level, and features a full kitchen and butler’s pantry, a modern bathroom and stunning 180 degree ocean views via an enclosed balcony.

The lower level features another large versatile space with a bathroom, fourth bedroom, and expansive deck for quality entertaining.

Mr. Berlyn said: “Offering premium coastal living, this stunning panoramic ocean view home truly must be seen to be believed.

“With a unique and flexible floorplan, this home offers even the largest of families room to grow in, as well as separate living quarters, perfect for intergenerational living and investment.”

Mr. Berlyn said the location was perfect for those who commute to the city regularly for work or leisure and want to enjoy everything Austinmer has to offer.
