Property Details

Every now and again a property comes to the market that sets itself apart from the rest and this is just such a one!

Situated up in the hills above Balnain this family home is arranged around a central courtyard with further gardens surrounding it.

At approximately a hundred years old it has an attractive appearance when approached across the front garden and upon exploring what would have been fundamentally the original house nothing comes as a surprise. A particular feature of this part is the kitchen with its central island and the log burning stove in the living room.

Everything changes when we walk from the living room, through a small transitory room, up a short stairway to appear in the most stunning vaulted ceilinged space with exposed stonework walls, a fully fitted bar and log burner. Despite our best efforts, the pictures can never convey what it feels like to look down on this.

At the end of this incredible space a stairway leads up to an area currently used as a study and then through a further doorway onto a balcony overlooking a further vaulted ceilinged room currently being used as a snooker room.
Two absolutely stunning living areas!

It doesn't end here though:
Through a lockable door is the holiday let apartment with its own front door leading from the courtyard.
Details of the income it generates can be discussed with the current owners.
Naturally it could be used as guest accommodation if required.

Our Opinion:

This beautiful family home with the addition of a separate income potential adding to the appeal
is a rare opportunity to own a one of a kind home in a stunning rural location.
