This stunning Highland home uses a combination of stone, glass and wood with beautiful interior styling to create one of the most ambient environments in which to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Your comfort and pleasure is assured with oversized entertaining room, 3 slow combustion wood heaters plus r/c air conditioning, an amazing master suite, decks, rural views, glorious garden and swimming pool.

The Highland House is located only a short distance from the Colo Vale freeway exit and just 10 minutes into Mittagong and 15 to Bowral. It is quick and easy to get to but enter the driveway and your cares will seem a million miles away from anything See below for quick and easy distances to major venues.

The stunning oversized open plan living area with gorgeous polished floorboards has enough space for all to come together whilst at the same time provides intimate nooks for dining, relaxing around the wood fire, or a round of mah-jong at the card table. The chefs in the kitchen can also share in the action.

The kitchen is well equipped with coffee machine, butler’s pantry, double dish drawer, all manner of appliances and herbs and spices and a 5-burner gas stove top with chef’s oven. The bathrooms are equally luxurious with heated towel rails and polished river pebbles on the shower floors that provide an instant grounding massage. Relax after a long day in the corner spa bath in the main bathroom.

The master bedroom is the suite of all suites with comfortable king bed plus large single day bed overlooking the garden, a lovely sitting area around a slow combustion woodheater, luxurious en suite and dressing room and ceiling to floor windows looking over the deck and water feature out to the seasonal garden. Bedroom 5 also doubles as a media room with slow combustion woodheater, lounge suites and a large flatscreen tv.

The garden is nothing short of glorious. There are various “rooms” created with hedging, arbours, and various plantings of lemons, limes, apples, pears, grapes, roses and beautiful seasonal blossoms. Be sure to walk around to the front of the house and look back at the stunning stone wall and glass feature windows. There are beautiful nooks in which to sit and read, enjoy shade in summer and warm sunlight in cooler months. There is an undercover bbq area and also a fully fenced swimming pool – perfect for summer entertainment. Outside the garden enclosure is a paddock with dam and some very curious and hungry vegetarian geese – be sure to send the scraps their way

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great House We all loved this house. Very spacious interior and large deck areas.Kids loved the big swings, playing soccer on the lawn and the ducks. Close to Mittagong and Bowral. Master bedroom enormous with its own pot belly stove. Would love to see the garden in the spring.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Place but needs attention We enjoyed the location and the size of the place. It is really beutiful but in need of attention. For example. The washing machine was broken and we had to wait until the next day to get it sorted after numerous phone calls. The after hours number left in the compendium went through to lady named Julie who advised me that she doesn't actually look after our property and didn't know anything about it. The next we prepared a chicken in the oven dish and when it was all ready for cooking we realised that the oven is broken and we're left to cook the oven bake on the stove top as we were advised someone could not come out to repair the oven until that evening. The oven mits are also burnt on one side and dirty looking. The spa had hair in it, the lights to the property were switched of on our arrival and we were forced to use our phone lights to navigate from the car park to house carrying our luggage. No instructions on the location of extra firewood. We found that out by accident after strolling to the garage in the morning. The hot water isn't the best and takes 5 minutes of wasted running water to reach a warm degree. There are also pictures of naked women hung up on the walls and a statue of a little boy holding his P.nis in the broken water feature. The p.nis acts as the place the water shoots out of. My three little girls found that rather interning (sarcasm). The geese are beutiful. The bin provided is not sufficient for a 5 day stay for 7 people and the fact that you require us to take our rubbish with us should be highlighted in your ad.
