11 Wilkinson Street, Berrima

Rest your Gaze on Harper’s Maze

This home is entirely perfect!  It will leave you a little breathless – and not just because your views, that stretch to distant hills, begin with two acres of sublime heritage gardens and the renowned Harper’s Mansion maze.  The home itself is a collection of delightful spaces – from the large country-style, eat-in kitchen featuring an array of Bosch and Smeg appliances, to the gracious formal living room featuring a Jetmaster fireplace that has balcony views over a back garden that can only be described as picture-perfect.  There is spot to sit for every occasion and to catch every nuance of the day’s light in this enchanting home and garden.

Sit inside the delightful summer-house beneath an ancient and prolifically-fruiting pear tree and take in the meandering dry stone walls, stunning old golden robinia and oak, and the romance of a home draped in clematis and flowering wisteria.

Wander into the beautiful heritage village of Berrima in just a minute or two – it boasts an array of restaurants, charming boutique shops, antique stores and colonial-era architecture. The locals welcome newcomers with open arms.  The village primary school, with an outstanding reputation (and a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden) is just around the corner.
