Tuscan-Like Villa with a Secret Garden

 

Surrounded by views of Mt Alexandra and across to Mt Gibraltar, and with uninterrupted views across fields to the historic Maltings building, this Tuscan-like bagged brick home has a delightful ‘secret garden’.   With an open-plan kitchen and dining room facing onto a gorgeous sun-room and vine-covered deck, it is perched above a sublime old garden and has somewhere to catch the sun all year round.

With its mud-brick potting shed, established orchard trees, enclosed pet-run, cubby house and rustic, delightfully eclectic style, this home exudes warmth, wonder and possibility.  Lovely and livable but with scope to update, it provides an opportunity to live within walking distance to all of Mittagong’s cosmopolitan offerings, then wander home to a leafy retreat in a quiet established street.
