Property Description

This historic miners cottage only 90 minutes from Sydney CBD is the perfect home to relax and enjoy the small beach town atmosphere of Catherine Hill Bay. No expense has been spared in renovating this century old Miners Cottage to cater for todays modern living while still retaining its original charming facade.


Situated on a large lot of land with plenty of room for the kids to play, Catho Cottage looks out onto natural bushland, yet is only a minutes walk away from the pristine Catherine Hill Bay Beach. This beach is patrolled in the warmer months and is a popular surfing beach with the historic Catho jetty.


The home is environmentally friendly, with solar hot water, rain water tanks and gas cooking & heating and backs onto a native reserve. Enjoy the sound of the crashing waves and birds from the back veranda - the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon wine or your morning coffee and immerse yourself in the relaxing garden setting. 


There are 2 bedrooms, the Master with a queen bed and the second with a double and a single bed. The lounge room has plenty of seating for all with TV and DVD player. There is also a dining table to seat 6 people. 


The kitchen has been renovated with stainless steel appliances, gas stove, fridge and microwave. There is also a small gas BBQ outside for your use. 


Whether you enjoy bushwalking, surfing, swimming, fishing, strolling along the beach, getting stuck into a good book or just listening to the tranquil sounds of the ocean waves crashing onto the shore 500 metres away, this is the place for you.
