Pack up the family or grab your mates and prepare for a relaxing weekend getting back to nature.
Close to Sydney and private
With unobtrusive views from the road, these secluded properties are the perfect hideaway if you value privacy and security. Plus, due to their close proximity to Sydney, these two homes make the perfect choice for a weekend getaway.
They’re both so tempting, you’ll have trouble deciding
Mountains or river? Access via seaplane or helicopter? Traditional log cabin or modern contemporary architecture? Whichever you choose, you’re sure to have a wonderful time with these two stunners as the basis for your weekend getaway.
The 2014 House of the Year now has an extensive makeover to keep the style fresh and modern. With luxurious bedrooms for eight guests, central kitchen with stunning stone benchtop, sleek bathrooms and outdoor fire pit, this home has been designed with comfort and entertainment in mind. Each window allows natural light to come flooding in and gives you jaw-dropping views.
Designed by leading architect Peter Stuchbury this home offers everything you’d expect in contemporary design, with sophisticated touches at every point—artwork, styling, fixtures and fittings all combine to provide an air of elegant yet understated luxury and allure. It’s the perfect place to explore nearby Jenolan caves or tackle the many hiking and biking trails just moments from the front door. Why not arrive via helicopter to make your stay extra special?
Here’s just one of the many five star reviews for this amazing property:
“Where do I even start with this absolutely jaw dropping place? Never have I been to a home like this. The house is super-modern and compelling in its design, unlike anything I’ve ever stayed at. The living areas and bedrooms all have floor-to-ceiling windows that offer an incredible view of the Blue Mountains. The pictures don’t really do it justice, I would highly recommend this, especially for groups.”
Sitting on the mighty Hawkesbury River is the majestic Sentry Rock. This romantic log cabin’s impeccable styling seamlessly merges the rustic natural tones with modern touches of glamour and luxury. Up to 12 guests can enjoy the extensive spaces, which include well-fitted bedrooms with en-suites, huge open fireplaces, wine cellar, outdoor waterfall, balconies with to-die-for views and heated swimming pool. Don’t fancy cooking? Then let our concierge take care of dining via famous local restaurant Peats Bite to cater for your private dinner, evening function or picnic on the water.
This property is the perfect base to explore the area by boat or by air. Enjoy a spot of fishing or boating departing from your private deep water berth berth directly from the property. With seaplane access from Sydney Harbour or boat transfers from Palm Beach, Pittwater and throughout the Hawkesbury, you can arrive as you mean to stay—in luxury and style.
What others have to say:
“Just wow. This property is amazing. It was the perfect location for our family group. Even though the home is large, we felt very cosy and relaxed in the space. The kids loved the pool and the parents loved enjoying the views from the balcony over a glass of wine. The perfect place to relax – next time we’ll stay longer for sure!”
