YOU WILL LOVE
The supreme location - start your mornings with a beach walk, a good latte and some sunshine
The gorgeous views spanning the coast southward and revealing the lush beauty of the escarpment
Getting together for quality family time and spreading out over the house for quality ‘me’ time
Watching the sun rise over the ocean as you eat breakfast and seeing it sink behind the escarpment as you enjoy a sundowner
With three bathrooms and two kitchens family life will flow with Zen like peace
Mountain Road is a highly sought-after street with locals and visitors alike, lined with a mix of colonial cottages, architectural wonders and palatial family homes. It enjoys the presence of the escarpment as a backdrop and the close proximity of the beach and yet is peacefully tucked away from the hustle and bustle.
Beach access is matter of enjoying a flat walk down the road and along Henley Road or via Mountain Road walking up the hill and crossing over Lawrence Hargrave Drive. Either way you are there with your feet wet in about 6 minutes.
Be sure to stop in at Bread and Espresso who offer amazing coffee and sinful pastries and burn off the calories by heading to the art deco ocean pool at Thirroul for some laps.
For a small but lovely sample of cafes, restaurants and shops Moore Street in Austinmer is a must but if you want to be browsing and busy all day then head to Thirroul.
For nature lovers head to Asquith Street to take on the Sublime Point track it is a tough walk only 700m but at a grade 4 (there are only 5 grades). However, fear not calories can be deliciously replenished at the café at the top.

THINGS TO KNOW
There will be three rooms locked off - a study, master bedroom and part of the garage.
We recommend that you drive onto Lawrence Hargrave Drive from Henley Road rather than from Mountain Road as visibility of oncoming traffic is limited. There is a staircase between the levels which will require supervision of young children at all times.
