Located less than two hours from Sydney, in the NSW Southern Highlands, Burrawang House is the latest luxury holiday home to hit the market and just in time for the festive season. Set on a parcel of land that is just over one acre in size, this Insta-worthy spot is giving us serious Cape Cod vibes and is the perfect rural retreat for design lovers.
“The beauty of Burrawang House is that it was built in 2022, but it brings in so many elements which make it feel like it’s been here forever, people feel instantly at home,” says Gabrielle Brewer, co-owner of the architecturally designed weatherboard home that sleeps 14 people making it ideal for large groups of family or friends.
The huge entertainers’ kitchen features a three-metre-long island bench, double Bertazzoni oven and cantilevered window which opens to the outside living room that has a recycled brick wood fireplace.
The large open plan living space features a towering cathedral roof design, oak floorboards, large oak dining table, and light streaming in through windows on all sides. There’s also an 18th Century Belgian mantle fireplace and huge L-shaped Jardan sofa in the lounge room.
The outdoor area is a highlight of the retreat with the nine-metre pool and eight-person spa an amazing spot to relax under the shade of the sun loungers on the sprawling pool deck.
“There are pergolas with recycled wood recovered from the Sydney Fish Markets, beautiful art collected over decades, antique furniture, bespoke joinery, lighting from the Montauk Company, Kate Spade, Paul Smith and Louis Poulsen and beautiful Armadillo rugs,” says Gabrielle.
The home sleeps 14 people and boasts five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms; the bedrooms include four king-sized bedrooms and a bunk room with six king single beds (all the bedrooms come with luxe linen). The house also has a games room, snooker and pool table, dart board and outside ping pong table to amuse guests.
And if you can prise yourself away from the property for just a few moments, there are national parks and forests right on the doorstep and the gorgeous Fitzroy Falls is just ten minutes away.
A renowned cool-climate wine region there are also 15 cellar doors in the area, antique shops, golf courses, open gardens, art galleries and excellent cafes and restaurants including the highly regarded Burrawang Village Hotel pub and Burrawang Village General Store Café. Established in 1865, the quaint picture-postcard village is a fabulous rural getaway.
