About the property
A retreat in the truest sense of the word you can enjoy a holiday of serenity, beauty and play. Set below the magnificent Illawarra escarpment, surrounded by trees and yet only 5 minutes drive to the beach, this home offers both a sea and tree retreat with garden surrounds and a little forest to keep you and the kids exploring for hours. This sprawling estate features two homes; a fully self-contained cottage with 2 bedrooms and the main house with 4 bedrooms. Set within a lush bush setting it is completely private, peaceful and filled with birdsong.
The serene green surrounds; every window reveals a leafy outlook and the backyard offers a completely natural vista and a pleasure playground for the kids
This homes' proximity to the ocean (5 minutes by car) and yet it in an elevated position away from the hustle and bustle
Being 2 minutes away from the incredible escarpment bush walks, 5 minutes drive to cafes or the pub and from the weekly 'Foragers' market at Bulli showgrounds
Between the sprawling woods, cubby houses, swing sets, basketball hoop, trampoline, enclosed kids playroom complete with toys and endless lawns, this is a place where the kids will be busy so the parents can relax
Generously spread out over two homes this property allows a large family to celebrate, laugh and reminisce whilst still having a private, quiet space to retreat to
Picking mangoes, grapefruit, lemons, tomatoes and herbs fresh from the garden (you may even be lucky enough to find a peach ripe and ready to devour)
The distinctive Illawarra landscape is a narrow oasis cradled by the emerald escarpment on one side and lapped by the ocean on the other. Although the beach is what draws crowds from near and far, this home offers a chance to be captivated not only by the Tasman Sea but also by the towering escarpment.
The back garden flows seamlessly into a native reserve big enough for kids to free-range but small enough to still find them for dinner. Or walk a few minutes around the corner to a bushland track that you can follow for over an hour exploring the native flora, birdlife and tiny creatures. However, when you are ready to hit the beach, the coast is an endless stretch of rock pools, calm flat ocean or rolling waves for those with a board and energy to burn. If taking in the views are more your thing - ride, walk or run the bike track all the way to Wollongong and stop to refuel with coffee and cake or take a cool dip.
Bulli is a charming village complete with bakery, butcher, cafe, farmers market, cellar, fruit market and fishmonger all within a 5-minute loop of each other. Park the car and walk away from your stresses and reclaim the simple pleasures of life.

Take a paddle board out on the glassy waters of Bulli beach in the early morning or catch the wind in the afternoon to clear out the cobwebs. Walk the canopy covered stairs to the boat sheds for great photos or a peaceful picnic.
The Bulli beach café sits just above the pool and the ocean and does wonders with fish and chips while Ruby’s a little further down serves up a killer burger. Or wander into the village for a drink, feed and live bands at legendary Heritage Hotel.
Keep Sundays free for the Foragers Market at the Bulli showground organic food, yummy treats, local honey and butter, amazing crafts – it is well worth visiting.
