Serenity is assured at this peaceful rural retreat. Set on 4 acres and surrounded by farmland, the chateau style home, separate cottage and saltwater, solar-heated pool offer everything you could want for your escape to the country.
Friar Park offers the perfect space for tranquil getaways.
Situated along a quiet, tree-lined lane only minutes from Berry yet completely secluded.
The main house has 5 bedrooms and accommodates 10 with two bathrooms (both with bath and shower) and a separate toilet. (Please see floor plan in photos for approx. house layout.)
The bedroom configuration is:
House Bed 1: 1 x king bed
House Bed 2: 1 x queen bed
House Bed 3: 3 x singles
House Bed 4: 2 x king singles
House Bed 5: 1 x single
The gourmet kitchen has a Smeg oven with gas cooktop, dishwasher and everything you need to whip up whatever your heart (and stomach) desires.
The kitchen is part of an open plan living and dining hall with cathedral ceilings, an open jetmaster fireplace and luxurious lounges to relax in. The wall of windows from this room to the expansive deck highlights what Friar Park is famous for – its views.
Whether it's misty mornings or Picasso inspired sunsets, the view will take your breath away.
Sit on the deck with glass in hand to enjoy the stunning surrounds in summer, or relax by the open fire in winter.
And for those wanting to 'get away from the crowd' there's a second living area with cosy couches, TV and DVD player.
The fully equipped laundry makes family and longer stays a breeze.
The separate cottage has a kitchen, bathroom (with bath and shower), open plan living and dining area and two bedrooms. The cottage sleeps 4 and can be booked by anyone booking the main house.
The bedroom configuration is:
Cottage Bed 1: 1 x double
Cottage Bed 2: 2 x king singles
Friar Park rejuvenates the senses and brightens world-weary souls. We look forward to welcoming you to the serenity.
Outside the house there are established gardens, a free flowing creek, spectacular views of Wedding Cake Mountain and the ever-changing scenery of the escarpment.
Nestled between the house and cottage is an 11 metre solar-heated, saltwater swimming pool with a huge undercover entertaining area and bbq.
And if you'd like to wander in to town for a coffee (or a loaf of Berry's famous sourdough), there's a walking track that begins right at the top of your driveway which provides a gentle hour-and-a-bit meander through country lanes right in to the heart of Berry.
