Mr Ryan said the breathtaking view was his favourite part.“The distinctive thing about the place is that we’re right on the top of the hill at Tugun,” he said.“I can see Surfers Paradise on the left and Coolangatta and Bilinga down to the right.“It’s just such a lovely place to live.”He said the house’s solid structure, which was built with quality materials, meant it would stand the test of time. Owners Dan and Anne Ryan bought the 1970s built house in 1990.“It was winter, we walked in the front door with the kids, the sun is north at that time and it was just absolutely beautiful all over the ocean,” Mr Ryan said. The whole family fell in love with it so they had no other choice but to buy.Mr and Mrs Ryan’s love for the property hasn’t wavered but in recent years, the house has become much too big for them to maintain by themselves. 13 Illawarra Court, Tugun. 13 Illawarra Court, Tugun.
