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.

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.
