Description

" I go to nature to be soothed and healed and to have my senses put in order "

This is a quote from John Burrows, but describes how you will feel from the moment you drive down the driveway of big maple trees to the house, the escarpment views open and you are immediately surrounded by the many different shades of green, old roses, iris and fruit trees in the the old established garden . The birds sweep through the garden calling each other and the breeze gently rustles through the huge Pin Oak trees that protect the old dairy and the farm shed.

This is our own very private property, with verandahs that wrap around the three sides of the house allowing you to immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquility of the valley. Every window that you look through shows a different scene of natural beauty.

Located in the Upper Kangaroo River area, one of the best positions in the valley and a stones throw away from the famous "Flat Rock" swimming area.

The main home has just been newly refitted. Boasting an eclectic mix of rustic antiques, contemporary art and treasured furnishings

Get warm and cozy in the lounge room with a glass of wine, next to the open log fire

To the rear of the house you can pick from the many fruit trees throughout the seasons including figs, plums, oranges, mandarins & persimmons to name a few. Or sit under the old Japenese Maple, Oak trees or large pines all providing a different aspect.

There are also big enclosed vegetable gardens filled with strawberries, lettuces, herbs and salad requirements to sample for your enjoyment.

It's our country home and we welcome you.The home has four bedrooms consisting of two queen size beds, one double and two long singles which can be zipped to a king sized bed if required.

The main bedroom, featuring a separate toilet, has a beautiful bay window and door leading to the verandah and garden. Each bedroom is spacious in size and opens out to the covered verandahs and garden.

The bedrooms feature a unique feel with pendant lights, luxury crisp white sheets, waffle cotton blankets and additional doonas on each bed. Prepare to feel spoilt

The house is U shaped with a beautiful rose walled courtyard that has the northern sun streaming in all day through the many doors and large windows.

The kitchen is fully equipped with quality items for all your baking and entertaining needs and also includes a dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine and family sized toaster.

Enjoy meals outside in the courtyard,. dine at the timber table and benches surrounded by walls covered with rambling "Pierre De Ronsard Roses ". You may also choose to dine under the grape pergola -seats 10

The house is fully air-conditioned and has fans for the hot summer nights and for the warm winters you'll be comforted by the linen sofas and log fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful and relaxing family break My extended family and I recently stayed at the Old Koonabulla Dairy to celebrate my mum's 70th birthday. We found the homestead to be absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and catering for every need, both practical and fun. From the board games to dress ups, pickup sticks and coits, we played games we have not indulged in for years. Aged from 73 down to 2, every member had a magnificent time. The flower filled gardens are stunning and the adjoining National Park truly takes you back to nature. We also enjoyed foraging for vegetables, salad greens and rasberries to add to our meals. A most enjoyable weekend. Thank you very much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful house and wonderful garden. Our group consisting of two couples and four young adult children had a lovely four night break away. The house is comfortable and beautifully decorated. We particularly loved foraging in the veggie patch and using the fresh vege to create some delicious meals. The peace and quiet and stars at night were fantatastic. Canoeing on the river was fun and the men enjoyed a round of golf. would definitely reccommend the house to my friends.
