A beautiful bush retreat on Brick Kiln Lane

Looks can be deceiving. This classic bush home was built in 1995. Photos: Supplied.

Fifteen minutes from Braidwood along Brick Kiln Lane a three-bedroom, two-bathroom weatherboard house sits in the native bush landscape, with a brick chimney and a shady surrounding verandah.

The corrugated iron-roofed home looks as though it has been a feature of the landscape forever, but the build is dated 1995 and the home has plenty more reasons to entice tree changers or those looking for a bush retreat for weekends. North facing, built on a slab and with satellite NBN, this is the perfect home in which to work or study in peace.

The master bedroom is set under a pitched roof with dormer windows. The patter of rain on the corrugated iron will send you off to sleep at night while two wood fires and insulated roof and walls will keep you warm.

In summer, a cross breeze will keep you cool, if you decide not to use the convenient reverse-cycle heating and cooling.

There is an ensuite connection to the master bathroom, a walk-in robe, and views of 101.5 acres of native Australian bush from every window.

The other two bedrooms are doubles, large and airy with exposed timber beams and soft carpeted floors, dormer windows and more impressive views of the homestead’s land acreage.

Downstairs, polished timber floors make the home warm and inviting, and while reverse-cycle air conditioning keeps the rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter, a combustion stove or two will always provide heat. The central entrance and reception room is open to the second story of the home, and enhances a feeling of space and light.


The impressive entrance would make an ideal library or office.

The ground floor of the home is divided into three main rooms, the entrance and reception space, the family/kitchen, and the formal dining and lounge.

The kitchen/dining and family room could easily be the heart of this home. It hosts one of the combustion stoves in a brick fireplace, giving the room a proper country kitchen ambience. It also has a gas stove and oven.

The kitchen table is the perfect family meeting point. There is plenty of room for kids to do homework, for families to gather, and to dine or sit by the fire. French doors open onto the classic country verandah, which will be shady in summer and help keep the home and its occupants cool.

The reception hall is double height and allows access from both sides of the home to the verandah, and could easily be used as a library, home office or family space. Across the reception hall, into the formal dining and lounge, there is another combustion stove and a conservatory with vaulted ceilings and plenty of windows for following that spot in the sun in winter.

The formal lounge and dining room are spacious, and also have reverse-cycle air conditioning, and French doors to access the verandah.

The 101.5 acres of land is well elevated, comprising native bushland teeming with wildlife. There are cleared areas for light grazing or riding, and there are trails for bushwalking or riding and rear access at the back of the property to a bridle trail to the Deua National Park and Majors Creek.
