Cherished Family Home Hits the Market For The First Time in 12 Years

Highland 2 mins read

Living in the Sutherland Shire is rife with a multitude of lifestyle options, from beautiful beaches creating a relaxed coastal lifestyle and the hustle and bustle of city living to quiet nature reserves only privy to long-time locals, one can find themselves feeling transported to nearly anywhere in the world. Quietly encompassing it’s own slice of heaven is 2 Bareena Street, Lilli Pilli, a charming 3 bedroom family home abutting the Lilli Pilli Waterfront Reserve that is currently on the market through Laura McKay and Mitchell Wynn of Highland.


Basking in it’s natural surrounds, the home owners have regrettably made the decision to move on form their beloved family home. “It has been a very hard decision for our family, as this home has been our sanctuary for the last 12 years,” shares the wife. “We are bushwalkers and sailors, we became keen kayakers and we were always amazed by the spectacular lightning storms and Southerly Busters that truly made us forget that we were living in a highly urbanised area.”


A rare offering in and of itself, the magical location of the Lilli Pilli Peninsular provides the family spectacular vistas of The Royal National Park and out across the waters of the Port Hacking. With three bedrooms over two levels, a large open living, dining and kitchen space leading onto covered balcony and porch with atrium glass roof, immersing all who visit in the reserve’s natural beauty, the home is an easy sell for visitors. A flourishing artist, the owner has recently retired and used this incredible backdrop as inspiration of her own artistic exploits.


“The COVID-enforced change from a busy job with lots of travel, to working from home stimulated me to start to create art inspired by my surroundings. There were collages of sunset, wobbly paintings of the kookaburras who come at cocktail hour, and many a still life posed on the kitchen bench with the backdrop of water and trees. I became obsessed with the fading of the light at day’s end and the full moon on the water.” Her artwork is now proudly displayed throughout the residence.


Laura McKay only had positive things to say. “Our vendors have lovingly kept this home during their time here, finding inspiration from it’s surrounds and turning a house into a home that almost melds into the beauty of Lilli Pilli Reserve itself.”


Being the family choice for family gatherings, 2 Bareena Street has been thoroughly loved and enjoyed, and is now looking for the next family to embrace natural living in a convenient Sydney locale.
