A statement in inspired and innovative design, this striking country property will engage, delight and charm you with its fusion of stone, glass and timber, creating a superb sanctuary where you can enjoy the best of country living in style.

Nestled amongst 5 acres of glorious, gardens and farming land and boasting peaceful vistas across the Highlands, this sprawling, custom-designed home is blessed with a superb sense of space and offers flawlessly integrated indoor and outdoor entertaining areas. Crafted for indulgent country living, yet only an hour from Sydney Airport, this exceptional, estate-like property is adorned with luxury appointments and high-end design features that express grace, comfort, beauty and retreat-like privacy.

Inviting, sun-splashed decks encircle the versatile, light-filled floorplan while added sophistication and glamour emanate from a resort-like pool, soaring, vaulted ceilings, polished floorboards, multiple, roaring woodfires, a luxurious spa bath and a huge, sumptuous master suite that will make you want to move in straight away with its majestic sandstone fireplace, lounge and floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the idyllic garden.

But this warm and welcoming home is only a small part of the wonderful story this property has to tell. Orchards, stables, a dam, separate cottage, garden hideaways and winding pathways add more charm and magic. The appeal of this secluded slice of serenity is reflected in its recent popularity on Airbnb, offering the new owner the potential of added income.

Far from the ordinary, this unique home features:

* An oversized master retreat to die for, with cavernous ceilings, hand-crafted timber and an upper level overlooking a lounge with regal sandstone fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows that celebrate the exquisite garden and French doors that allow you to enjoy it from the moment you awake. A walk-in-wardrobe leads to the ensuite.
