Located in the heart of Berry, on the NSW South Coast, Linnaeus Farm is a new luxury holiday home ideal for interior design lovers. Just two hours’ drive south of Sydney, the luxe property splices Cape Cod and Scandinavian design elements and it sleeps 10-to-14 guests making it perfect for a family or group getaway. And while surrounded by green rolling hills it’s just five minutes’ drive away from Berry village (think award-winning restaurants, wineries and interior boutiques), and ten minutes’ drive from Gerroa’s Seven Mile Beach. What’s not to love?
Designed specifically with families, groups and intimate retreats in mind, the property features five bedrooms, four bathrooms, multiple living spaces and two kitchens – one on each level of the home – allowing for guests to spread out and enjoy their own space.
The ground floor features three bedrooms including a massive master suite as well as a large kitchen, laundry and living area that overlooks the property’s gardens and picturesque olive grove.
The second-floor features two additional bedrooms, an open plan living room (with pitched timber roofline), Herringbone timber flooring, a bathroom with a claw-foot bath (yes!) as well as a living and dining area, second lounge and study.
The resort style pool is yet another highlight – it’s surrounded by a large timber deck and lounging furniture making it the perfect spot to peruse the grazing paddocks at the rear of the property. Ideal for kids, the property also has a treehouse and play area constructed around a large fig tree, making it perfect for nature play.
Adding to the idyllic countryside setting, the home’s nine acres of land feature vegetable and fruit gardens too – a trellised olive grove leads from the main house taking guests to the home’s edible gardens and citrus orchard. The garden is home to a bounty of organic produce including beetroot, tomatoes, sweet potato, passionfruit, turmeric, lettuce, oranges, lemons, limes, bananas, figs, peaches, mangoes, avocados and several herbs.
The property also boasts a heated timber meditation hut which is set over a dam – it’s another private space to disconnect and take in the glorious surrounds.
Part of the Linnaeus Collection, Linnaeus Farm is the first holiday home to be unveiled by the group. Collaborating with Linnaeus Collection on the journey is the talented Simone Mathews of SOUL Home. Simone will oversee the styling of each upcoming project ensuring that they complement the pretty South Coast surrounds.
