This Saturday provides the first opportunity to look inside a luxury home in Kiama custom built three years ago by a local family.
Brook and Alissa Hollands said they had planned to create their dream home much earlier than they did.
"The block was vacant when we purchased it quite a few years ago," Mrs Hollands said.
"We bought the land and then we found out a month later we were going to have twins so we had to put everything on hold.
"It was our dream to have a beautiful big home for our family and soak in these fantastic views both north and south."
Now family is the reason they decided to buy a rural retreat at Jamberoo and reluctantly sell their Myuna Place home.
"We bought a farm," Mrs Hollands said.
"We are after the country lifestyle with horses for the kids."
Mrs Hollands said their three children were a priority in the design in Myuna Place.
"We have the pool and spa area which they absolutely love. And we had the home theatre themed room made for the children," she said.
The couple also wanted to make the most of the spectacular views and create an area that was ideal for breakfasts and barbeques.
"We are very proud of it," Mrs Hollands said.
"We overlook Surf Beach and the lighthouse. And we like watching the whales. We think it will appeal to a lot of people."
The Hollands' used local builder DRC Built for the construction. And the custom designed stair case using local timber was done by South Coast Stairs.
The family plans to go local again when they design and build another dream home on their new farm.
Listing agents Scott Douglas and Aleesha Borg, of Raine & Horne Kiama, said the five bedroom, four bathroom, four car garage, two storey house with a large outdoor pool, spa, alfresco and entertaining area has been picked by Raine & Horne to be Australia's House of the Week.
They said the Masterbuilt home has 180-degree views of the township and coastline, soundproof cinema room, expansive living areas and an outdoor BBQ/kitchen.
"They are not sure if they want to go to auction or not so what we have suggested is we have two open homes, gauge the market feedback and then make a decision," Mr Douglas said.
"It is really hard to get a fresh Masterbuilt home on a flat north facing block looking over Kiama township.
"I think that block was subdivided around 1990 and it has only just been built on."
Mr Douglas expects interest to come from far and wide including Sydney and Canberra and will particularly appeal for people wanting to enjoy great coastal views.
He said with more people now able to work from home large spacious modern homes in such idealic locations were in high demand.
And part of Kiama's appeal for the Sydney market was it was where the electric train line starts.
Mr Douglas said such a property in the metro area would be far more expensive so he expects interest to be strong.
"It is going to set a new benchmark for the area. I think the closest sold around there was around $2 million," he said.
Mrs Hollands said they would be really happy if they can get up around the $3 million mark.
