Award-winning Kiama showpiece already attracting attention before first open home
Media release - 14 April, 2016
A stunning home on 1 acre of land in the holiday mecca of Kiama, on the NSW South Coast, has just listed for sale and is already drawing plenty of attention from downsizers and Sydneysiders seeking a weekender to escape the city’s hustle and bustle.
The exquisite property, which is located at 127 Williams Road, Kiama, is expected to fetch a sale price between the high $1 millions and low $2 millions, thanks in part to the fame of its award-winning architect Ian Moore, who created the real estate masterpiece.
The property has graced the front cover and pages of many home designer print and online publications such as the UK’s bdonline.co.uk and houzz.com.au, and has received accolades from a wide range of architects and building companies.
“The property uses a combination of glass, steel and concrete materials to encompass the architectural brilliance of its renowned architect,” said selling agent, Steve Pryor, Principal of Raine & Horne Kiama, who is expecting a very busy first open home this Saturday, 16 April.
“The owners are selling up because they’ve decided it’s time to move on, and the keen interest we’ve seen in the property to date is due to its idyllic location. It’s perched securely on the most elevated spot on Saddleback Lookout, yet is just a 5 minute drive to shops and beaches of Kiama.”
The interest in the magnificent property is also indicative of the strong market conditions for Kiama property, says Mr Pryor.
“Increasingly, we’re seeing more people from Sydney’s North Shore downsizing or buying weekenders in Kiama and surrounding areas,” said Mr Pryor.
“Most North Shore residents tend to look to the Central Coast when the time arrives to downsize, however they’re recognising that the South Coast is more affordable.
“Why pay $4 million for a waterfront on the Central Coast, when you can buy a similar property in Kiama for $2 million or less?”
Discussing the construction of the property, Mr Pryor says 127 Williams Road is positioned over two lengths of reinforced steel beams on two concrete pods, which can be utilised as storerooms.
“This type of structure promotes natural ventilation while being suspended over the symmetrical slope, with all of the northern and southern façades entirely glazed taking advantage of the aspect and views,” said Mr Pryor.
The roof has been designed to overhang along its entire length to protect the extensive glass panelled facades from the weather. The internal floor plan is designed with three functional areas: the bedrooms with their own private bathrooms, the main living area, and the kitchen/laundry/services area.
“This simple, clean and elegant design makes full use of the external sliding glass door design, transforming the home into one total indoor/outdoor area as a huge ventilated space,” said Mr Pryor.
“A highlight of the home is its 180 degree views taking in Pigeon House Mountain, 7 Mile Beach, Werri Lagoon, and Rose Valley to the Pacific Ocean and up the Illawarra Coastline.
“We expect this property will attract discerning buyers looking for tranquillity, privacy and totally scenic surrounds.”
