A waterfront home that is also surrounded by bushland will be a rare find when it goes to auction at Lilli Pilli, according to the agent.
The four-bedroom home with three bathrooms and four car spaces in a cul-de-sac at 31 Turriell Bay Road is set on a deep waterfront block and offers a self-contained boatshed and floating dock - perfect for the water lifestyle.
Located on a 2478-square-metre block, the family home captures water views over Great Turriell Bay.
McGrath Cronulla estate agent Murray Cole said you won't find anything else like it in the area, as its native bushland set it apart from the manicured-garden homes often found on the waterfront.
"It's surrounded by bush and vegetation and it has a nice, wide waterfront. Kids would love it, but it would also suit someone who wants to be near the water but doesn't want to look after too much," Mr Cole said.
"It's charming and has a lovely presence to it. It has a warm feel and looking out to the trees and water is beautiful."
The block has been held tightly for over a century by the family of Tom Gibson, a biomedical engineer and Principal and Founding Managing Director of Human Impact Engineering.
Mr Gibson's grandfather used the waterfront for fishing, and Mr Gibson was raised on the property along with his six siblings. While his father was serving at war, his mother rowed with their seven children, to buy their groceries.
The weatherboard house was built in the 1960s and renovated and extended five years ago.
The Gibson family have been stewards of the natural bush surrounds. Following their mother's lead, their focus has been maintaining the natural landscape.
There is a self-contained flat on site.
The price guide is $4,700,000 to $5,100,000. The property goes to auction at 5.30pm on Friday, December 17. Details at bit.ly/308aRBc
