Luxury on a grand scale in Merimbula

Luxury on a grand scale in Merimbula

Crossing the threshold of 34 Jacaranda Place, through the custom-built door, is like entering another world. You’ll immediately notice the luxury, the space and the design touches which create a sense of separation from the stresses of modern life.

“From the deck, you can hear the ocean waves and the coastal birds,” says Sails Real Estate Merimbula Licensed Agent James Cravana.


“It is extremely private, and you can’t see your neighbours from the back deck.”

The property is located in the Mirador estate in Merimbula. It is set across a 1366 sqm block at the end of a cul-de-sac, which offers another layer of privacy and separation from the hustle and bustle.

“It is a fair bit bigger than the standard block – these days, they tend to be 750 to 800 sqm,” he says.

James says builder Shaun Cooper of Blue Tongue Building put that space to good use.

“He’s a renowned builder in the area and known for his high-end work,” James said.

“The quality of everything inside is a step up.”


The lower level hosts a workshop, while the main floor of the home has an open-plan design and houses four bedrooms, two bathrooms (one of which is an ensuite, and there’s also a powder room), a kitchen, a separate home office and a soundproof media room.

As you can guess, every element of the home is a step or two above expectation.

“High ceilings are a real feature throughout. All the rooms in the house are very generous spaces – there’s no pokey areas.”

Throughout the home, expansive windows and skylights let the sunshine in – as well as views of the ocean and surrounding greenery.

The kitchen boasts stone benches, soft-close cabinetry, quality Electrolux appliances, a mirrored splashback and a butler’s pantry.

In the ensuite, pops of colour come from green tile features and black accents – such as the shower head, mirror frame and vanity taps – while the other walls are adorned with herringbone-pattern tiling.

“The herringbone brings an upmarket, luxury look that you don’t see in many bathrooms.”


Overlooking the landscaped backyard on the covered deck made from spotted gum, you’ll find a hot tub – the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

Retaining walls have been built into the level backyard, and the area is cleared, so it’s a very usable area with tiered grass and garden areas.

“You can sit down on the built-in seating in a nice, cozy area to toast some marshmallows and have a beer or a glass of wine.”

34 Jacaranda Place is an easy 20-minute walk to Short Point Beach. As James explains, you’ll understand why they call it the Sapphire Coast.

“The colour of the water is a real sapphire blue and the whales can be seen during their migration.”

While the Far South Coast lifestyle attractions are at your doorstep, you’re also within easy reach of the big cities.

“Many people are looking to work from home and go into the office once a month or so. One of the big advantages of Merimbula is that we have an airport here.

“You’ve got daily flights to Melbourne and Sydney – making it accessible to the two state capitals – and it’s about a three-hour drive to Canberra.”

34 Jacaranda Place, Merimbula is for sale for $1,950,000 - $2,000,000
