Home & Away star Jeremy Lindsay Taylor and wife Marnie have moved to the Illawarra, buying a house on the outskirt of Kiama.

They made the move down from Curl Curl, which is Home and Away cast heartland.

He's currently wrapping up a remake of the Australian classic Romper Stomper, which will be aired this summer, 25 years after Russell Crowe's performance.

Taylor suggested it will be one to watch, but gested "not for the kiddies!" He stars along with David Wenham, Lachy Hulme and Dan Wyllie.

Taylor said the obvious similarity to the family life in Curl Curl was the beaches. The biggest difference however, was avoiding the city traffic wherever possible.

He said they decided to move down there because they knew it would be a great place to raise their two daughters, Esmée and Isla. The daughters now have a decent backyard with the prospect of a puppy.

Jeremy married Marnie at nearby Black Beach Reserve in 2011 with the district "always be a special place for us."

Taylor scored a role as Summer Bay's newest detective in 2015. He told Sydney Confidential his role in the hit Seven show had been a long time coming.

“I’ve been doing this (acting) nearly 20 years now, so it has been a long time coming,” Taylor said.

“I have always wanted to be a part of this. Home and Away is an institution, it is iconic Australian TV. It is great to finally be a part of the family.”

One of his most notable roles was when he played Melbourne gangster Norman Bruhn in Channel Nine's hit crime series Underbelly:Razor.

He was nominated for the 2012 AACTA Choice Award for his portrayol of the role.

The fully renovated home last traded for $410,000 in 2012, showing a near 15 percent annual growth over the last four years.

Not far from the beach, the one level home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

A large back yard with established vegetable garden is overlooked by an outdoor entertaining area.

The couple previously owned at Spring Farm near Camden but sold for $273,000 in 2014.

Taylor has featured in Sea Patrol, Gallipoli and Puberty Blues, as Kurt Peterson in the 90s student hit Heartbreak High.

He recently appeared in the Channel 10 drama Offspring. He played Dan who was set up on a date with Kat Stewart's character Billie Proudman.
