11 Charlton Close, Bowral

“Heard it on the grape vine”


Capturing fabulous northerly sun to the living areas and built for sustainable living, this beautiful home is tucked away in a very quiet cul-de-sac but is an easy stroll to Bowral town centre.  Super-insulated, fitted with solar panels and capturing enough rainwater for probably all of your needs (but with town water at the flick of a switch), it combines extreme comfort with economical, environmental living.

Featuring a large open-plan kitchen combined with a sunny living and dining room, and a very spacious formal living and dining area that is able to be closed off and made cosy with a gorgeous open fireplace, this is a house for four seasons.  In Autumn, the spectacular old ornamental grape vine provides a mass of colour and there are fruit trees and raised vegetable beds galore (and a huge chicken run to boot!)  With four bedrooms plus teen retreat/studio/games room it is large enough for a family, but also perfect for retirees looking to downsize into ultimate town luxury on a very manageable block.

  • Lovely large kitchen with granite bench tops, integrated fridge and stainless steel appliances looking out onto enclosed courtyard framed by climbing jasmine
