The Magic & Majesty of “Glengarry” Estate

The Magic & Majesty of “Glengarry” Estate

One of the last remaining grand estates of the Southern Highlands, “Glengarry” is surrounded by almost three acres of European style parklands. This magnificent 1930s offering harks back to an era of elegance. Butler’s and chauffeur’s quarters, a ‘school house’ and a spacious caretaker’s cottage – spaces from another time – yet they still exist inside the realm of this graceful estate.

In Gatsby style, drive up to the front door and park under the grand portico.  Enter into the remarkable foyer and wander past magnificent living rooms to eventually find a huge eat-in, country-style kitchen.  Warm and wonderful, it flows to outdoor areas and looks out to striking Autumnal colour from the beautiful old deciduous trees.   

Climb the grand, sweeping staircase to discover an elegant labyrinth of large rooms – some interconnected, but in all, a total of six bedrooms and two bathrooms.  Currently two of the bedrooms are set up as spacious, light-filled living rooms.

Within the grounds is a sweet little weatherboard ‘school house’.  It could be a studio or potential guest accommodation – it has a bathroom, small kitchen and a sitting room.  Wander further through the grounds, and perched at the rear of the property, with wonderful access to the tennis court, is a three bedroom, one-bathroom cottage that could immediately provide rental income – it has private driveway access.   A little further on, the garage, a similarly solid brick and tile building, has a small bathroom and is plumbed and powered. Originally also housing the chauffeur’s quarters, it could be renovated to become further accommodation.

The original art deco bathrooms are incredibly charming. Beautifully liveable, the house, cottage and outbuildings could all be updated – it is a perfect opportunity to stamp your mark on an estate of unparalleled glamour. A family precinct, a retreat, an accommodation business (STCA) –  it is easy to reimagine the entire property in so many different ways.

In the deep, quiet luxury of leafy Burradoo, this home is unique.  The privacy provided by the old-growth English gardens is complete. 

Some of the many features of this estate include:

It is just 1.5 hours’ drive away from Sydney.  If you are looking for a tree-change that provides the opportunity for first-class private schools, world-class equestrian facilities, excellent medical facilities and a beautiful rural setting, there is no other place.

“Glengarry” itself is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  The spectacular grounds are ready to burst into Autumnal brilliance. Its sweeping grandeur is a joy to behold.
