South Haven is perched high amongst the Eastern escarpment of Barrengarry Mountain in Upper Kangaroo River. In a special area of Kangaroo Valley, this Australian colonial home has been purpose built and positioned on 18 acres to capitalise on the breathtaking views.
The homestead consists of two adjacent dwellings, a four bedroom home and two-story “Coach House”.
The detached Coach House offers guests upper level air conditioned sleeping accommodation with an ensuite bathroom and sofa bed downstairs, kitchen nook equipped with microwave, toaster, kettle, plates and utensils. A large flat screen TV & DVD player completes the inventory for those wanting some me time. A Juliet balcony upstairs opens up to provide yet another place to enjoy the view.
On entry to the main home, the guest lounge room provides a flat screen TV, DVD player, I Pod dock and large lounge settee to watch the flickering of the slow combustion fire. A variety of CD’s DVD’s and games is provided for those lazy days that we all crave occasionally. Adjacent in the dining room, a 12 seat dining setting provides guest comfort complete with a spectacular glass atrium. These areas are fitted with fully ducted reverse cycle air conditioning for guest comfort in all seasons.
A large country kitchen ideal for entertaining is complete with 5 burner gas cook top and large 90cm oven. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine and coffee and coffee pod machine for those who prefer simplicity and efficiency. A full inventory comprises crockery & glassware and includes the usual suspects toaster, kettle, sandwich press and all utensils, pots and pans. The 4 bedrooms inside the house are all furnished with quality queen beds, built in wardrobes with all rooms equipped with doors extending onto the covered verandahs.
Walking outside you can enjoy the benefits of a splash in the 8m pool or use of the separate hot tub.
A 12 seat outdoor setting is perfectly placed to enjoy the views to the Eastern escarpment or the sunsets on the escarpment or a BBQ on the rear deck. Walking down the front stairs there is an outdoor fire pit for marshmallow toasting surrounded by large grassed areas.
There is sufficient parking for up to 5 cars so don’t stress if you can’t car pool.
The acreage provides extraordinary natural boulders and caves as part of the glacial valley that was formed as well as semi tropical forest areas. Walk to the creek below, meet the cows or just find a rock and sunny spot to sit and relax with a book.
South Haven is the perfect place for one to five couples, a group of friends, or a large family looking for a place to escape and unwind.
