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 in style yet rests harmoniously in the beautiful rural surroundings. The House enjoys a breathtaking outlook over working farms. Sit on the verandah, listen to chattering birds and enjoy the spectacular backdrop of the magnificent Bucketts Mountain Range.
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.
