With panoramic views over millions of acres of National Parks, this 7.5 acre property is called "Bell Mountain Retreat" for good reason. With views to Mount Wilson, Mount Irvine, Mount Tomah, Mount Tootie and even Mount Warrawalong 105 km away in the Hunter Valley Sitting on the verandah and sipping a cuppa in the warm morning sun is a truly wonderful experience. The Upper Blue Mountains climate is lovely with temperatures never getting above 35°C - in fact while Sydney swelters in the thirties, this area enjoys refreshing temperatures in the twenties. Fresh mountain breezes are a delight in summer, and with the property at 1,070 metres above sea level, occasional snowfall is a wonderful treat. We add a Christmas tree for ambience for Christmas in July annually celebrated in the Blue Mountains region
Sharing its back boundary with the Heritage Listed Blue Mountains National Park, the property features lovely open paddocks with the comfortable three bedroom home situated high and offering simply stunning views. Imagine waking up and seeing adorable wallabies feeding in the paddock with mist slowly rising from rugged valleys surrounding the famous Blue Mountains sandstone rock formations and pagodas. "It's like your own private Three Sisters" - which has been remarked several times. Direct access to walking trails in the Wollongambe Wilderness is available right from the property's back gates. The property extends downhill to the National Park boundary, meaning the view is yours forever and can never be built out or screened. Kangaroos regularly hop around the property.
The modern three bedroom brick home is surrounded by a bull-nose verandah and has lovely timber features throughout. Large windows bring the stunning view right into the living room and bedrooms. The home features a slow combustion wood heater, reverse cycle air conditioner, gas stove, gas hot water system . The home features easy access and is single level accommodation.
There is a lot of wildlife around the property including kangaroos, possums, wallabies and many varieties of birdlife.
The kitchen features lovely Tasmanian Oak timber doors to the cupboards, a modern gas stove, outside venting range hood and a modern Bosch dishwasher. The bathroom has a lovely country feel, with plenty of timber and lovely tile patterns with sparkling brass fittings.
The home is surrounded by established gardens featuring some truly beautiful plants such as a huge Weeping Cherry Tree and a massive Crab Apple that just explodes in huge blossoms every Spring. Beautiful Honeyeaters, Wrens and Finches happily hop along the branches of the ornamental grape vine and shrubs that grow along the verandah. Other quality plants include Daphne, Flowering Plum, Lily-of-the-Valley Shrub, Hebes and of course no cold climate garden would be complete without lovely Rhododendrons and Camellias.
Nature abounds and the property would well suit birdwatchers or bushwalkers.
Bell is in a great central location, being only 10 minutes drive from Mount Victoria, 15 minutes from Blackheath, 20 minutes to Lithgow and 25 minutes to Katoomba. This property would suit a young family, a group of singles or retirees wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of town, but still enjoy easy access to public transport and is only a one hour drive from Sydney's outskirts, and two hours from Sydney CBD.
The renowned award winning restaurants of Blackheath are only a 15 minute drive or train ride away. Bell Railway Station is located within walking distance from the property.
This property would make a perfect location for a Yoga or Health Retreat .
