This combination of a comfortable four-bedroom, two-bathroom country home, classic Southern Highlands cottage and breath-taking garden on three acres of majestic near-level Robertson land comes with some welcome surprises at the end of its long, manicured, tree-lined driveway. Picturesque English-style hedges, dry-stone retaining walls, thoughtfully planted blossoms, rhododendrons and camellias await and lead to its stunning garden. Horticulturists eager to put their own stamp on an already first-class garden or those just happy to appreciate its botanic beauty will be charmed by the many joys of 'Linden Park'.
The gravel driveway, with its characteristic crunch underfoot, heads through a timber archway with its pretty floral canopy to a classic, shaded veranda which hugs the home on three sides.
Inside, the decor is fresh and light with polished floorboards, and picture windows which allow the northern winter sunshine to flood into the family living room. The renovated kitchen with gas cooking, masses of storage, island bench and breakfast bar has contemporary, country styling whilst delivering clean lines and quality resources for the family chef. Enjoy the view from here or from the expansive 'Australian Cedar', maintenance-free, Deco Wood aluminium decking just outside the door on the north-western side of the home - a wonderfully sunny winter spot.
Two separate living areas are warmed by a dual-sided, slow-combustion log fire (and as well, there's central-heating throughout) with the formal dining and lounge featuring a fabulous marble hearth and mantelpiece. The views to the garden and borrowed neighbouring vistas to the hills of Robertson through floor-to-ceiling windows will entertain and delight as you watch the changing seasons, abundant bird-life and passing four-legged 'farm' friends as they overlook the fence.
The master bedroom, with ensuite and walk-in 'robe, enjoys similar views across the veranda, out to the garden and beyond. Two more separate, light-filled bedrooms with built-in 'robes, and a fourth bedroom or study and family bathroom, lead off the hallway.
Adjacent to the main home there is a separate, rambling 1920s, character-filled, two-bedroom weatherboard cottage with kitchenette and new bathroom, surrounded by camellias and conifers, making it a potentially perfect country-getaway weekend rental (STCA), home office or inspiring artist's studio.
The massive, near new lock-up, three-bay garage and workshop at the rear can accommodate cars and farm vehicles plus has plenty of room for the toys, yard equipment and storage. There's an additional side-by-side, two-car, undercover carport.
Surrounded by pasture on 'borrowed' acres and with big-sky views, wrought-iron gates, lily ponds, expansive green lawns, the ambience of a rural lifestyle and with potentially an income-producing facility onsite, the whole on a private three-acre block, are lifestyle bonuses often sought - and they can all be realised in this very attractive holding.
This property is half way between Burrawang and Robertson, perfectly placed to harvest the convenience and delights of both country towns.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the astute buyer.
