Some say the breezes of Bermagui are magical. They sweep down from the north, across the mountains and rivers to caress the north facing slopes of Nutleys Creek Road, which rises above the town and heads off into the forest.

Listed by local agent Julie Rutherford at $718,000, this property at 28 Nutleys Creek Road, Bermagui offers a rare and highly desirable lifestyle change, in a peaceful yet thriving seaside town.

The three bedroom, two bathroom home is set in established native gardens with an outlook of stunning Spotted Gum forest, rolling river views and is in its own private enclave.

Bermagui is fast becoming one of the most desirable and liveable towns on the Far South Coast, and this home, with its enormous deck, boasts outstanding, elevated views towards the ranges and valleys of Tilba Tilba and Mystery Bay.

This is a friendly, active and vibrant community, with a growing restaurant and food scene. Add the surrounding pristine environment and you have a highly sought after area to put down roots.

Watched over by beautiful Gulaga Mountain and Najanuga, this is Spotted Gum country, which means seclusion, outdoor living and birdlife, including the beloved vocal local Lyrebirds.

This custom-built home includes 2.7 metre ceilings throughout, with spacious central living and dining areas that separate the main bedroom suite and study from the guest bedrooms and bathroom. It is air-conditioned throughout.

The kitchen is light and bright, all electric, with central island, and big bay windows overlooking the garden planted with an abundance of flowering natives.

Agent Mick Butterfield says “this house sits seamlessly in its natural environment. It’s well proportioned and is very flexible with its smart design and separation of living and sleeping areas.”

All three bedrooms have floor to ceiling windows that open to the large deck and stunning northern views. Your gaze is constantly drawn to the horizon, and your ears filled with birdsong. There are also built in and walk-in robes, and an ensuite bathroom.

There is a separate laundry with easy access to the garden and clothesline, and ample storage under and throughout the home.

Set on a 5095m2 (1.25 acre) block, the house has been well designed for the sloping site with level and private street access, and also charming areas to sit and walk, dotted around the gardens and lawns.

Another feature is a convenient remote control garage entry with internal access to the house.

But it’s the large, sweeping decks with glass balconies that enable you to take in the views from most rooms in the house, that is the standout.

This is a wonderful, well-designed home. Built circa 2001, it is tastefully and simply decorated, with scope for an ultra-modern update if desired.

In the meantime, sit on your deck and take in the nature all around you, or wander down to the busy Fisherman’s Wharf for a restaurant meal, freshly caught fish or an Italian gelato.

Listing agent Julie Rutherford says “there are a million reasons for living here in Bermagui. With an unspoilt environment, affordable properties, this is a dynamic community, and we have the best, most temperate, climate in the world.”
