Nestled on an estate with trimmed hedges, landscaped gardens and surrounded by trees is an idyllic coastal retreat you’ll never stop loving.

My Agent Team Licensed Agent Megan Goucher says 17 Barrakee Drive in Long Beach offers comfort and privacy.

“I couldn’t name another property that ticks all the boxes: the resort-style house, the studio, the pool, the solar panels and the shed,” she said.

“It’s got a lot to offer.”

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home draws inspiration from Hamptons luxury, with dormer windows and a wraparound veranda that overlooks landscaped gardens with hydrangeas, hibiscus, native plants and a charming rose garden.

“That all creates a Hamptons vibe on a smaller acreage,” Megan says.

“The style is always a favourite. It definitely feels more like you’re on holiday.”

There is plenty of room inside the home, including a separate loft space that could be converted into a home office or new bedroom (or another place to relax) and a large gourmet kitchen that boasts a walk-in pantry.

The property also features a self-contained studio apartment, offering even more space for family, friends or guests.

“This is the property’s most unique factor,” Megan says.

“We do get other nice properties in Long Beach, but this sets it apart.”

A 15-metre in-ground saltwater pool will be the envy of friends and family wanting to cool off in the summer heat.

Steps near the back of the house lead you to the rest of the property, which features an established fruit orchard with mature trees, a fire pit, a double carport, a greenhouse and a vegetable garden with nine garden beds and a sophisticated watering system, and a chook shed on the property.

“The home is set among the trees across 2.5 acres,” Megan says.

“It’s not a whole heap of land to maintain, but there is space to enjoy.”

Both local beaches and Cullendulla Creek are near, Megan said, meaning the sun and sand the NSW South Coast is famous for are just short drives away.

“Long Beach is a favourite of many, particularly those from Canberra,” she said.

“It’s conveniently located – just a few minutes drive over the bridge into town – and the area is nice and quiet.”

Megan says this property would suit a family looking to move away from the tightly packed city.

“The detached studio is perfect for either a growing family with older children or elderly parents,” she says.

Coastal Councils are all facing financial hardship due in part to these large houses on large blocks that do not make the best use of land. We need higher density housing in existing boundaries, these “rural developments” saddle taxpayers with debt to maintain services for hundreds of years.
