A private Bowral estate, with its lofty manor, park-like gardens and spectacular views is currently listed with Di Jones Real Estate.

Positioned high over Bowral township with views over rolling countryside into the distance, this large home is set out over three levels. Perched above its 5 green acres (2.02 ha), this impressive property offers an enviable lifestyle and absolute privacy.

Much like the recent past, when the wealthy would leave steamy Sydney to spend extended holidays in the Southern Highlands to enjoy long afternoon teas, court and carouse, you too can escape to Bowral.

Behind the gated entry you will discover a forecourt and manse, enchanting gardens with carpets of green lawn and secret spaces, and many resort-style facilities. There is a boutique equine infrastructure, and everything you need for a variety of active lifestyle pursuits, including tennis and swimming.

Master ensuite

On the upper level of the home, from which you can see for miles and miles, are five generous bedrooms, two with ensuites, and all with built-in robes.

The light-filled master suite is situated at one end of this level, with a window seat above breath-taking views across the rolling countryside, a spacious dressing room and opulent ensuite. A verandah runs the length of this level, with another of the large bedrooms opening onto it.

Of the five bathrooms throughout the home, two feature deep free-standing baths, and four have been beautifully renovated with quality tap-ware and fixtures.

A large and light-filled kitchen

The middle level is ‘The Living Space’. Dark floors and clean white walls bestow the interior with an understated feel. Despite its grand size, there is nothing ostentatious about this home.

The state of the art kitchen has a 4-metre island bench, quality Miele appliances and induction cooktop, and opens out onto the lawns and pool area by way of gorgeous folding windows. This large kitchen is outfitted with bespoke cabinetry that flows into the dining area with a concealed walk-in pantry, impressive wine rack and delightful bay window seat.

There is a large family living room off the kitchen with a gas fire and window seat, and underfoot is a mix of Jarrah floorboards and 100 per cent wool carpet. Above are soaring 10 ft ceilings, and all is heated with ducted reverse cycle air throughout, as well as fireplaces (two gas and two wood).

There’s also a more formal, grand lounge with the panoramic views, and a long deck running the length of this level and its spacious rooms.

Just inside the ground level entry is a custom-built workshop with both internal and external access, and 3-phase power.
