The splendour of the English countryside meets the luxury of modern living in this grand arcadian house.
Located in the Southern Highlands, the home was built in 1927 and has since been faithfully restored. Set on one hectare (2.5 acres) of perfectly manicured lawns with sundrenched ornamental gardens, the property is gated and fully fenced with entry via a discrete circular gravel driveway. Ensuring you arrive in style, a large colonnaded Georgian portico entrance with tiered water fountain greets you in the front garden.
Inside, French timber shutters cover floor to ceiling windows and doors, while parquetry flooring extends throughout, including in the commercial-grade gourmet kitchen, family eating area, and formal living room. Hydronic underfloor heating throughout the vast property ensures guests’ utmost comfort.
In a property where nothing is an afterthought, the feature is undoubtedly the dramatic two-storey glass conservatory. The roof, windows, and double glass doors are left uncovered to reveal the large gardens and an unrivalled view of the night sky.
Burradoo House has six large bedrooms and four bathrooms (three of which are ensuite). The master bedroom features a separate sitting and bed areas together with walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom. The guest suite also enjoys a large separate sitting and bed area and ensuite bathroom, a private and substantial outdoor terrace and its own ground floor entrance. The second guest suite looks out over the front gardens, also enjoying an ensuite bathroom and an exclusive separate outdoor terrace. The remaining three bedrooms are character filled and generously proportioned with outstanding garden views.
Outdoors, an inground pool will keep the family entertained in warmer months, or serve as a perfect backdrop for entertaining with its stone paved setting and arbour of Georgian columns.
What the Owner Loves
While the property is so beautiful you won’t want to leave, the owners recommend enjoying some of the local hospitality. Located in the most exclusive suburb of the Southern Highlands, nearby attractions include the majestic Fitzroy Falls and the brilliant tulips of Corbett Gardens, in addition to numerous wineries, fine dining restaurants, antiques shops, and boutiques.
What We Love
Mindful restoration has ensured that Burradoo House retains the architectural features of its origin, including coffered metal and plaster ceilings, curved walls, timber floors, large paned windows, and several open fireplaces.
What the Family Loves
The park-like lawns means that there is ample space for games for kids of all ages. Bushland backing onto the property provides plenty of opportunity to explore, while the pool and shaded area—observable from the conservatory—makes for endless entertainment in autumn, spring, and summer.
Home truths: This home isn’t recommended for children under the age of 10 years.
