Off a country lane and down a tree lined driveway only 5 minutes from Bowral CBD sits this stunning sandstone period home in a beautiful garden oasis amidst 10 acres of lush rural paddocks. Beautifully decorated and appointed with all your comforts in mind, Sarnia will not disappoint

This period home of sandstone construct and tin roof has wide sunny return verandas facing east and north from which to watch the horses in the adjoining paddocks. A wide and interestingly decorated entry hall greets you and set the mood, whilst the wide polished floorboards lead you into the main living dining area of huge proportions. Be enticed to sit around and relax and gaze at the huge open fireplace.… just be sure that moose above is not looking at YOU This room has windows on 3 sides looking out to the paddocks, the garden and the pool and a sheltered outdoor dining area. Furniture and decorations have been hand picked to create a very warm and stately feel.

The attention to detail in the decoration and comfort of the bedrooms is second to none. They are large, carpeted and beautifully presented with quality bed linen and thoughtful touches.

The bathroom and kitchen have been renovated but are still in keeping with the period of the home. Relax in a claw foot bath or cook up a storm for your Highlands dinner party The wide return verandas create another “room” from which to watch the sun rise and set, the horses frolic in the paddocks or the kids swim in the pool. You are free to roam the paddocks and enjoy the various garden nooks.

Sarnia is the home of the local “Rush Roasting Co” family coffee enterprise. The coffee is roasted in the roastery at the rear of the house and packaging is a family affair. The coffee is distributed locally, as well as Sydney and South Coast, and is well known for its superior flavours. You will be given samples for your stay. The roastery is currently out of bounds and will not affect your stay in any way but stay tuned as it is developed into a “cellar door” and you will be invited in to observe the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great property in quite country location. Our family's stay at Sarina was very enjoyable. The house was very comfortable with good outside entertainment areas around the BBQ and pool. The property is well located for touring the region and shopping at Bowral.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, Perfect, Perfect! Escaped to Sarnia for a girls weekend and it was perfect! The house was warm and cozy, the coffee was divine, the beds were comfy and we had the best catch-up imaginable. Nothing beats playing a version of Trivial Pursuit from the previous century next to a roaring fire with loads of wine and cheese. Was so close to Bowral and Berrima that we did lovely little day trips too. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Location, Perfect House, Perfect Farm We had an amazing stay, the property is so warm and welcoming, even on the coldest of days like Saturday. Loved sitting in front of the fire with just the sound of the wood cracking.
