Our property is located in Holgate, a very safe & friendly area with a blue ribbon address that offers peace, privacy & a stunning setting yet it is still within 10 mins of the best beaches the Central Coast of NSW has to offer (closest being Terrigal & Wamberal which have many restaurants/bars).
The Central Coast is a popular tourist region (checkout the region and all that it has to offer on the web) as it is located only 1 hour north of Sydney/1 hour south of Newcastle. It is an area of great natural beauty with magnificant countryside & beaches, & is ideally situated for other popular regions, such as the Hunter Valley (wine growing region) & Blue Mountains.
Our home is sunny modern 4 bed, with outstanding views & surrounded by nature. It is set on 5 acres of open grassed paddocks, native gardens & bordered by rainforest & bush with wildlife galore (wallaby's, possums, diverse range of birds, a nature lover's paradise).
The back garden offers complete privacy to relax with an abundance of entertainment areas, gazebo and an in ground salt water pool which looks over the landscaped gardens beyond.
Set well back from the end of a quiet no-through road, features include; open plan living with lots of windows to take in the stunning valley views, large modern kitchen and casual eating area and downstairs rumpus, study, bathroom and 2 further bedrooms.
We have 2 friendly dogs (Schnauzer & a Boxer) who adore everyone, incl. children. However if required we can get them taken care of by friends (though we'd prefer to leave them at home).
My husband and I are freelance professionals (he's in IT and I'm in media) who work both locally (we commute to Sydney) & internationally. I am about to take up a 6 month contract working for the BBC and am ideally looking to exchange within 30 mins of Shepherds Bush from April to July when my husband will be visiting me (the rest of the time I will find rented accommodation).
Holgate is a highly desirable area of the NSW Central Coast. It is a rural enclave of beautiful properties, so it has a country feel, with friendly neighbours and complete peace and quiet, yet it has the convenience of being within 10 minutes of a huge shopping centre with all it's delights (including gyms, cinemas, ice skating, etc) and beaches. There are many restaurants and pubs to visit.
The Central Coast is a popular commuting belt for Sydney workers, with good transport links (car and train). My partner and I both commuted full time for almost 10 years.
I am a 40 year old freelance media professional and my partner is a 44 year old freelance IT contractor. We are originally from the UK having emigrated to Australia around 15 years ago. We like to spend time working in the UK when we get the opportunity so that we can spend time with our family and friends, though Australia will always remain our permanent home.
We like most things in life and like to just explore the world around us. We especially like good food and luckily we also like going to the gym!
We're both very keen gardeners, spending many hours outside enjoying our setting, but due to our lifestyle we've deliberately created gardens that are very low maintenance. However we'd love to look after your gardens!
