Welcome to the ‘Lighthouse’ — a landmark home by acclaimed architect Peter Stutchbury and winner of the Wilkinson Award for residential property.

Showcasing a site-specific design that complements its clifftop location in Sydney’s coveted Dover Heights, the four-bedroom residence — complete with large double lock-up garage and three bathrooms — is a heady combination of modern glamour, raw materials and elevated finishes.

Throughout the home, themes of raw concrete on the ceiling, floors and coordinating columns are paired with timber finishes in the kitchen, central staircase and panelled details dotted within the property.

It’s a theme that extends to the home’s outer, offering sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Sydney Heads with its curved, concrete exterior mimicking the shape of the cliffs upon which it is set.

The two-level home sees a lower living, dining and kitchen space that is glass on all sides bringing in plenty of light and ocean views. The home features multiple sliding doors that allow seamless access to the ocean-view lawn, inner pool courtyard and further wide terrace.

Within the residence comes the kitchen, fitted with marble benches, Mile gas and induction cooking plus timber flooring underfoot.

Accommodation is located on the upper level, where a lavish main bedroom gazes across the ocean and features large built in/walk-in robes and opens to a private terrace.

Elsewhere a secluded second bedroom offers privacy with an adjoining norther-east facing sitting room or additional bedroom.

A third bedroom could be used as a large bedroom or relaxed living/study space with views across to the surf at Bondi Beach.

Further highlights include the upper double bathroom — a vast space with separate amenities and featuring a central skylight that skewers the centre of the room down to the lower courtyard pool.

The aforementioned pool, courtyard and outdoor entertaining areas further elevate the home’s functionality.

The listing is with Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty’s Michael Pallier (+61 4127 371 522) and is headed to auction on Wednesday 16 February.  Sydneysothebysrealty.com

When people talk about making a seachange, chances are this is the kind of property on the NSW South Coast that they have in mind.

Open for inspection for the first time this Saturday, 24 Point Street Bulli offers rare absolute beachfront, with never-to-be-built-out north facing views of the ocean. Located on the tip of Sandon Point, this two-storey property is a surfer’s dream with one of Australia’s most iconic surf breaks just beyond the back wall.

On the lower floor at street level, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including a family bathroom and an ensuite in the master suite. A fourth bedroom is on the upper floor, along with the main living area, and is serviced by its own bathroom. 

While this would make a spectacular holiday home, it is well equipped for day-to-day living, with a spacious gourmet kitchen and butler’s pantry set into the articulated open plan living area on the first floor. A separate media room to the street side of the property on this level provides additional living space. 

Every aspect of this property has been considered to take in the light and views, with high ceilings internally and spacious, north facing decks on both levels to take in views of rolling waves. If the pull of the ocean is irresistible, it’s just a 100m walk to feel the sand between your toes.

The house is complemented by a Mediterranean, coastal-style garden, while the garage has room for a workshop and two car spaces.

An easy walk to Bulli village, the property is a 20 minute drive from the major hub of Wollongong and just over an hour to Sydney.
