How Wollongong Became The New Luxury Coastal Home Hotspot

When you think of luxury coastal destinations within New South Wales, your mind likely wanders to Sydney’s northern beaches, the rivers of Yamba, Port Macquarie, Forster and the like…but what about Wollongong? A sometimes forgotten treasure located a little under two hours from Sydney, real estate interest is on the up in this coastal town, drawing in buyers and builders alike who are after their own slice of quiet, beachy paradise.

Considering Wollongong as a place to build your new home? At HYSPEC Homes, we can be your new home builders Wollongong – and here’s why we think you’ll love building here.

 

Why Is Wollongong Growing In Popularity?

If you’re a fan of real estate and house-hunting shows such as Channel 10’s Location Location Location, you may have seen that the coastal town of Wollongong is on the rise when it comes to real estate. Discussed as an undiscovered property gem, with everything from old homes to renovate to multi-million dollar mansions to marvel at, Wollongong is also more accessible than people think, even when compared to other competitive housing areas including the Central Coast.

If you’re looking for a gorgeous place to call home, Wollongong is fast rising as a contender. Nestled between the stunning Illawarra Escarpment and the sparkling ocean, it allows you a beach-side escape without the hubbub of Sydney’s often swamped beaches and hustle. With idyllic spots like Coledale Beach, Thirroul, Stanwell Park Beach, and Wollongong City Beach, lovers of the outdoor lifestyle will find plenty to revel in in this area. 

But what else is on offer when it comes to buying and building in Wollongong?

 

What Is The Median House Price In Wollongong?

And although the median house price in Wollongong is around $1.1m, there are still plenty of renovator’s delights to be found, as well as land to be purchased.

These guys went above & beyond their duty when constructing our deck. They faced numerous obstacles due to the nature of the old existing deck, and throughout the entire process they were professional, thorough, neat & tidy, and their attention to detail was of the highest standard. We will always highly recommend the team from Hyspec Constructions 😊

Hyspec Constructions & Roofing completely transformed our 1950’s fibre house to a modern and contemporary clad home. The advice and workmanship from Brett, Luke and the team was second to none. Many people have commented that we got it ‘just right’ and this is no small part to Hyspec. Thanks boys, we are so happy with the end result.

We made the best decision to get Hyspec to build our 2 decks and 2 pergolas and an amazing feature stairs to lead us from one deck to the other. Brett, Luke and their team of skilled tradesmen were a delight to have around. From our first meeting I felt at ease with Brett and his vast building knowledge and creative ideas to help us plan our dream backyard. The boys worked with great skill, passion for detail and care to see the job was done right the first time. Brett was flexible, always willing to listen and also ready to suggest any alterations to the plans which would improve the end result as the project progressed. His team were great guys who took pride in their work and always left the site clean at the end of each day. If you are looking for a great local builder in the shire I would recommend Hyspec construction and roofing highly. Thanks Brett, Luke and the Hyspec team, we love our new decks and spa pergolas.

Brett and the boys put up a privacy screen along my deck. Right from the start I got honest advice and, most importantly, the job done when he said he was going to do it and completed on time with a quality finish. The finish is beyond what I expected, all waste materials were neatly cleaned up leaving me to kick back with a cold one and enjoy their hard work. Cheers guys.
