The Place that Time Built

The Place that Time Built

Historic, rambling, exquisite. The garden and street presence are mesmerising; the living spaces are galleries of creative exuberance and masterpieces of joyful interior design.   This Old Bowral home offers not only beautiful, comfortable living spaces, but is merely footsteps away from every conceivable amenity that this delightful, upmarket Southern Highlands town has to offer.

Nestled behind a private hedge and pebbled driveway, this exceptional family-sized home masquerades as the prettiest cottage in the Cotswolds. But don’t be lulled by its serene country appeal – filled to the brim with striking artworks and sculptures to show off its interior spaces, and just 1.5 hours from Sydney, “Crofte” is such a rare and special offering, it will not last long on the market.
