Step Inside Beautiful Illawarra Homes: Our South Coast Spaces Collection

Have you ever driven past those stunning homes nestled in the picturesque corners of the Illawarra region and wondered what treasures lie behind their incredible facades? If so, you’re not alone. A few years back, we embarked on a journey to unravel the secrets hidden within these architectural marvels through our much-loved series known as South Coast Spaces.

Hosted by Troy McNeice, South Coast Spaces offers a glimpse into the beautifully designed interiors that grace the Illawarra landscape. From contemporary chic to timeless elegance, each episode unveils a unique home created by talented local designers.

Haig Street, Wombarra

Our inaugural episode showcases the epitome of collaborative genius. When you bring the right people together with a vision that pushes the envelope in design and construction, you are sure to create a masterpiece – and that is exactly what has happened in this stunning space in Wombarra on the South Coast of New South Wales, just south of Sydney.

Ambleside Avenue, Mount Keira

In our second episode, Troy visited Mount Keira to see this beautiful home created by Adam Roser and Leah Rispoli. The project brief for Adam and Leah was to create a modern home that encouraged as much light inside as possible. Products that were used in the build included Cemintel Barestone and powder-coated aluminium providing a long-lasting and low-maintenance finish.

Corbett Avenue, Thirroul

For episode three, Troy explored Corbett Avenue in Thirroul to see this beautiful space created by Donna Brikich. The goal was a traditional home, with touches of Hamptons and relaxed coastal vibes. This was achieved through incorporating the exposed beams, v groove walls and ceilings to create a soft ambience all while staying true to the ‘Aussie’ beach house with a traditional but contemporary crispness making this home warm and enjoyable to live in.

Hicks Road, Thirroul

In the fourth episode of South Coast Spaces, Troy visits Hicks Road in Thirroul to see this incredible space created by Sarah Nolen. Following the client brief of transforming the cottage into a mid-century home, Sarah’s client wasn’t afraid of colour or pattern which meant the team could use incredible materials such as brass cabinetry which has never been used before in Australia, and living finishes on the tapware that patina over time, evolving with the house.
