Berry NSW (25 November 2021) Sydney buyers seeking an NSW South Coast holiday escape are leading the charge for Highcliffe, a breath-taking acreage property, which is expected to achieve one of the biggest sales prices on record for Berry when it goes under the hammer on 15 December.
“Perfectly positioned with breath-taking views of the Kangaroo Valley escarpment, Highcliffe at 428 Wattamolla Road, Berry is a spectacular 5-acre property that has generated an excellent response from the market,” said selling agent Jacqui Crapp, Principal of Raine & Horne Berry.
Ms Crapp says Berry’s proximity to Sydney is a significant selling point for a property of this calibre.
“With the completion of the Albion Park Bypass, there is now not a single traffic light between Berry and the outskirts of Sydney. This situation means you can be door-desk from Berry to the Sydney CBD in as fast as 90 minutes,” Ms Crapp said.
“Better still, once you’re in Berry, you’re just a short 20-minute drive to the nearest surf beach, Seven Mile Beach, that offers a broad range of activities including fishing, swimming, picnicking and bushwalking.
“We have already had dozens of enquiries from Sydney-siders primarily seeking a holiday home in the first instance that isn’t far from home. However, many buyers have indicated the longer-term plan for Highcliffe could involve shifting to the property full-time in retirement.”
As a holiday home, Highcliffe can easily cater for multiple families, with the luxurious main house providing four bedrooms and two bathrooms. In contrast, the adjoining ‘The Woodshed’ provides a rustic studio-style one-bedroom space featuring an outdoor bathtub and private deck.
Other standout features of the main house include high ceilings, ornate cornices, quality timber flooring, imported Italian tiles from Di Lorenzo on the verandah and stairs, underfloor heating, designer light fittings, an open log fireplace, and ducted heating/air conditioning. Nothing has been left to chance on the entertainment front, including surround sound, and a gymnasium, while the property comes with ample garaging and abundant storage.
Ms Crapp added, “The main house also caters to those executives and entrepreneurs who like to work from a home office as it has a massive work from home space on the upper floor, and this is a feature that has caught the attention of several aspiring Sydney buyers.
“The main house is full of character, perfect all year round, and ideally situated on the land with a large wrap-around veranda matching the position and elevation of the property, and it is fantastic for entertaining and relaxing while taking advantage of the uninterrupted 360-degree views.
“Surrounded on three sides by the escarpment, the property is unbelievable and is truly taking the breath away of buyers with that WOW factor the moment they drive through the gates.”
Green thumbs are also well-catered for, noted Ms Crapp. “An unbelievable suspended boardwalk runs throughout the forest at the base of the property, offering a unique perspective to the stunning Wattamolla valley.
“The carefully shaped gardens have been planned by legendary garden designer Paul Bangay, in conjunction with Berry-based Broughton Landscaping. The combination of the mature formal gardens and the manicured lawns and interesting works of art throughout the property makes Highcliffe an extraordinary property that has buyers clamouring to organise inspections.”
