90 Bowral Street, Bowral

History, Mystery and Modern Charm


Around a century ago, when this gorgeous cottage was built, the family car was a rarity.  You still don’t need one here. This (now-extended) home, artfully combines the ultimate rambling charm of yester-year with fabulous open-plan indoor/outdoor living.  And it’s right in town – in fact it’s in the best rural town in NSW as voted by Australian Traveller Magazine.  Intricate leadlight windows, high ceilings and plaster ceiling details marry beautifully with the modern kitchen and bathrooms and lovely interior style.

The huge sunny north-facing back room incorporates dining, living and an open-plan kitchen.  Delightful picture windows to the garden show the changing seasons and the colours of the ancient Japanese maple that is true feature. There is direct living-space access to a spacious covered outdoor deck for entertaining flow.  Four bedrooms, a sitting room and office complete this dreamy picture.

Currently a family home, it is also the perfect weekender (low maintenance garden) or cosy cottage for retirees who wish to walk to coffee, doctor, hospital and shops.

Alternatively, the front rooms have a good layout (and direct access and parking for clients) for people wishing to work from home.   Lovely Bowral parklands, schools, restaurants, cinema and train are all within walking distance.
