Barrington River House is framed by over 432 acres of visually stunning farmland in the Barrington River Valley, New South Wales. Built in the early 2000’s the house is modern yet rests harmoniously in the beautiful rural surrounds.
The House enjoys a breathtaking position outlook over working farms. Sit on the verandah, listen to chattering birds and overlook the magnificent Bucketts Mountain Range - all of which add to the soothing ambiance of Barrington River House.
Relax around the salt water inground pool in the warmer weather or curl up in front of the slow combustion fire in winter. All year round, the House provides an exclusive escape into the heart of the countryside.
Canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, horse-riding, fishing, tennis and golf are all nearby. Fifteen minutes in a car takes you to the historic Gloucester town center, with cafès, pubs, museums and parks as well as extremely friendly locals.
