“Jeeves, Bring the Pimm’s to the Tennis Court!”
Built in 2004, but reminiscent of the Highland’s most beautiful 19th Century homes, Charlton House has been built with a meticulous eye for traditional detail. From intricate plaster ceiling roses and traditional tapware, to antique leadlight windows imported from an English village hall, Charlton House will whisk you back in time.
Luxuriate in traditional style whilst you are surrounded by modern comforts: ducted gas central heating, under-floor heating in wet areas, wiring for entertainment infrastructure and a beautiful solar-heated swimming pool surrounded by york stone paving.
The hand-painted timber kitchen features a double Ilve oven and walk-in pantry and flows to an open-plan casual sitting room, a formal dining room and two verandah areas through French doors.
There are five very generous bedrooms. The main bedroom has two walk-in robes and its ensuite features a gorgeous claw-foot bath. The fifth bedroom is comprised of a guest loft – an enormous luxurious space (with built-in robes and an ensuite) that could sleep an entire family and is quite privately situated away from the rest of the house. It would be also be perfect as a teenage retreat or an entertainment zone.
Downstairs there is a lovely formal living room with open fireplace and built-in library cabinetry adjoining a study. Upstairs, the children can roam around in a huge family room that spills out from three of the bedrooms (all with built-ins) and there is storage galore.
Walk down the pear-lined drive and you come to a magnificent full-size synthetic surface tennis court flanked by cherry laurel hedges and surrounded by birch groves. The three-car garage is delightfully styled with barn-style electric doors and allows direct access into the house.
A hidden surprise that will only be discovered upon exploring the garden is an approximately 400 square metre fully fenced and hedged “paddock”, perfect for keeping small animals or for siting a large shed STCA.
With 580sqm of beautiful house on nearly an acre of garden, tennis court, heated pool, guest accommodation, room for three cars and a pet paddock, all just a stroll from Bowral’s delightful coffee shops, boutiques and restaurants – this dream property has everything for sublime country-style living.
