Sydney builder Nathan Hall from Citybuilt Developments and his wife Julie were on the hunt for a new building project when they stumbled across a vacant block of land in Killcare Heights with sweeping ocean views and DA approved plans for a tri-level home architecturally designed home.
The rest they say is history – Mrs Hall said that they were driving past the property at 7 Babs Rd and decided to buy it within the space of just 15 minutes.
“We wanted a project on the Central Coast because the Sydney market was capped out and overpriced,” she said.
“With the DA plans already approved and ready to go, and this was perfect, so we went for it.”
For a year the couple worked tirelessly to create something that honoured the incredible design by architect, Glenn Osmond McLeod.
Built on a rocks edge, the property offers an immediate connection to the surrounding environment.
Visually striking, yet restrained in design and style, Mrs Hall said that the landscape was so beautiful that they did not want to go overboard with anything.
“We worked with a Sydney interior designer Amanda Garcia-Panetta of Raymond Panetta Architects, who helped bring to life a Moroccan-style feel with Spanish and Italian tiles, different tones of oak and natural finishes.”
With galleries of glass framing ocean views all the way out to Palm Beach, expansive hardwood decks extending from each floor and a rooftop terrace and an internal lift servicing all three floors, living here would be an absolute dream for any type of buyers.
Standout features include a seamlessly integrated kitchen with Smeg appliances and butlers’ pantry, main with ensuite, powder room and private deck and an incredible two-way fireplace.
Styled by Coco Republic, agent Cathy Baker said that buyers would have the option of keeping the furniture at a reduced price.
“This is the best Christmas present that someone could buy themselves – it is just so aesthetically pleasing,” she said.
“Everything flows so beautifully from inside to out,” she said.
No. 7 Babs Rd, Killcare Heights will go to auction on Sunday, 28 January, 11.15am and has a bidding guide of $2.6 million.
