From a luxurious penthouse to an original mid-century cottage, various parts of the Illawarra and South Coast recorded significant high-end property sales last week. This includes the property at 74/62 Harbour Street, Wollongong, which sold prior to auction for $3,561,069 after 11 days on the market. This north-east facing penthouse apartment offers top floor ocean views taking in the Five Islands, the beachfront and lighthouse.

Other features include a vast, house-like floor plan complete with a lounge and dining zone, walk-up bar with Vintec wine fridges, a private children's wing with its own bathroom and balcony, and a wraparound sundeck. Selling agent, Darren Kay from Belle Property Illawarra said the property had strong levels of inquiry, both from local and Sydney-based parties. "It's arguably Wollongong's best penthouse purely because of its aspect," he said. "It's very hard to find something north-east facing. It's in a tranquil location, amazing views, and close proximity to the beach, harbour and infrastructure. "It was hotly contested prior to auction, and ultimately came down to a Sydney and local-based buyer, with the Sydney buyer coming out on top."

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom original mid-century cottage sits on 556 square metres. It offers ocean and headland views, and is one of just a handful of properties on Headland Drive's waterfront reserve. It had a price guide of $4.75 million to $5 million. Selling agent, Ryan Stalgis of First National Coast &amp; Country said it had been sold to a Sydney buyer, after they had more than 1300 inquiries on the property. "Most of the buyers were looking at it as a knockdown," he said. "It's an original '50s home... I'm sure the buyers will be looking to knockdown and rebuild at some point."
