Description

"MARTHAGUY" is a tranquil, luxury, unique property. Originally part of the Hopewood Estate, this is one of the finest 5 acre properties you will find this close to the centre of Bowral. Stunningly renovated in 2016, attention has been paid to your comfort and needs. Private and peaceful, the house is light, open and commands a stunning view to Mt Gibraltar.

Elevated and protected, Marthaguy is nestled among the tree tops and protected from harsh southerly winds. The morning sun reaches every room, which is a blessing in the winter months. Bird life is abundant and on occasion you might see a couple of kangaroos or even a wombat.

LOCATION:

The Southern Highlands is a unique area. To most visitors it is as if they are entering "another world", with attractions such as the Bradman Museum, numerous wineries, magnificent gardens, antiques, heritage and wondrous natural attractions that are ripe for exploration. The nearest one is Gibbergunyah Reserve, only 1.7 kms from Marthaguy. It offers a choice of bushwalking trails of varying distances and some beautiful lookouts.

Marthaguy is located 2.3 kms from main street Bowral or the train station. The delightful township of Bowral, the heart of the Southern Highlands, is approximately a 1.5 hour drive from Sydney; 1 hour from the coast; and 1.75 hours drive from Canberra.

The property is less than 2 kms from several major wedding venues including Peppers Craigieburn, Gibraltar Hotel, Centennial Vineyards Winery and Hopewood House. Bendooley Estate is only 6.5 kms away 8 minutes by car.

For the golf enthusiast you have the choice of Craigieburn Golf Club, the Country Club Golf Course both less than 2 kms away or Bowral Golf Club 3.6 kms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful house, great view We really loved our stay. Mandy was great to deal with and even stocked the house with essentials like a great loaf of sourdough bread, milk, butter and more. The view from pretty much every room is beautiful and the large kitchen was a great place to cook and chat. The lounge room fireplace was nice and cosy and with central heating, throughout the house, we were nice and warm. The bathroom and ensuite and very nicely done including a big rain shower shower head and an egg shaped bath. It's also pretty close to town (totally walkable).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING property !!! What a gorgeous house..... The beds are super comfy, everything is very modern and new. The location is excellent, very close to the center of Bowral. It was the perfect getaway for the weekend with 5 girlfriends. We had a ball, thank you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "How's the serenity?" Well, what a pleasure it was celebrating my wife's 50th at Marthaguy! This welcoming house, so beautifully laid out, instantly felt like home. we couldn't have wanted for more as we hosted some close friends for two nights and then had the pleasure of waving them goodbye and relaxing in this serene haven for another two. Located in a lovely tranquil part of Bowral, yet so close and convenient if need be, Marthaguy is the closest thing to a country retreat smack bang in Bowral, that you'll find. Mandy attended to all our needs prior to our arrival and then like all great hosts (unless needed) left us to it. In fact the only locals we encountered were the ducks, kookaburras, rosellas and rabbits. A beautiful interlude from the rigours of city life.
