This picturesque weatherboard home is one of Braidwood’s original historic homes. Built circa 1840, ‘Shadowlands’ is set on 5 acres of established cool climate gardens and lawns.

230 Bombay Road in Braidwood features four bedrooms, one bathroom, an open-plan interior with period styling and beautiful gardens all around.

Belle Property real estate agent Kelly Allen said the home has a beautiful feel you can sense as soon as you walk in.

“This property is one of Braidwood’s original cottages and it has a really nice, kind of romantic feel to it,” she said.

“It’s also quite large for this style of cottage and has some amazing gardens surrounding the property.”

The house has been renovated and extended over the years. It offers an open plan living and dining room complete with a fireplace and study nook opening onto a quaint verandah. It is the perfect spot to enjoy the ‘East Garden’ overlooking the seasonal creek with a timber bridge.

A charming country-style kitchen comes with parquetry floors and a 900 mm oven. This light-filled space also offers room for a breakfast table.

The home features four bedrooms, a home office, a modern bathroom and a walk-through library space.

To complete the idyllic setting, the ‘North Porch’ overlooks picturesque vistas, past the rose garden occupying the old cattle yards and lavender shed to the rolling hills beyond – the perfect spot to sip your favourite tea.

Kelly said there’s a lot to love about this beautiful property.

“It’s tough to choose a favourite thing about this cottage; it has so much going for it. The open-plan living is great, and it comes with multiple verandahs looking out over the gardens so you can pick and choose the view on a day-to-day basis,” she said.

Moving outside is five acres of fertile land with established trees and cottage garden beds – they’re so good the home has featured in Braidwood Open Gardens.

There is plenty of lawn with the potential to create animal paddocks. The property has permanent water via a licensed bore plus town water.

The shedding consists of a double garage, an old potting shed, an old washroom (now a handy garden shed), plus the lavender shed.

Some other features include gas heating, reverse cycle air conditioning, assorted fruit trees, town water, mains power, excellent mobile reception and fixed wireless NBN.

‘Shadowlands’ is located just 2 km from the township of Braidwood and is just over 3 hours to Sydney.
