9 Carlisle Street, Bowral

Heritage Magic, Modern Glam, Art Studio (Pony too?)

Don’t let its divine old-world street frontage fool you. The perfect family home, move straight in, all the work has been done for you. A quintessential Old Bowral weatherboard cottage it may be, but that’s only half the story. Quirky, modern, stylish, spacious, rambling, fun, well-designed –the old and the new are combined with true artistic flair. 

When the polished-concrete glamour of the fabulous new north-facing wing (think raked ceilings, highlight windows, clean Scandi-chic) meets the timber boards and old-world charm of the original, things get exciting.  But head to the back of the house – another incredible surprise awaits. A huge back room combining open-plan kitchen with spacious living is completed with glass doors across the back to show off the incredibly large low-maintenance garden and fabulous entertaining decks.

Gaze across to your free-standing artist’s studio that also functions as a teenage retreat.  Wander further down the garden and your very own little pony paddock awaits.  Bordered by picturesque raised vegie beds and pretty plantings, this walk-to-town lifestyle property provides a truly unique experience.
