Hidden away in the highly sought-after region of Reidsdale, this pretty, solar-passive cottage offers picturesque views for miles, complete with majestic sunsets and glorious star-dotted skies.

664 Sawyers Ridge Road in Braidwood sits on 68 acres of fertile land with scattered timber throughout and Sheep Station Creek towards the back of the block.

This two-bedroom, one-bathroom house has been constructed with climate in mind, facing 10 degrees north with a reverse brick veneer and double-glazed windows to keep you warm.

Belle Property agent Kelly Allen said people who have inspected the property called it magical.

“People keep coming and saying, ‘this place is just magical, the house, the landscape, all of it’, it’s probably what I’ve heard most about this property,” she said.

The property also comes with its own off-grid solar with inverter and batteries and two 25,000 litre water tanks.

Entering the house, you’re greeted by modern open-plan styling and vaulted ceilings giving the house a unique style and feel.

The lounge area has its own combustion fireplace and plenty of space to relax with a book.

The dining space and modern kitchen open out onto a north-facing sun-drenched patio, where you can spend your days listening to the birds and feeding the ‘roos or just having a nice morning cuppa.

There is also a ‘Murphy Bed’ tucked away downstairs, suitable for guests or those who can’t use stairs.

The second floor holds the bedrooms, both of which are roomy, with the second bedroom having access to a viewing gallery/platform so you can gaze out at the superb bushland or the stars before heading to bed.

There is potential to create a third bedroom in the loft space above the garage or add an additional wall near the ‘Murphy Bed’ in the dining area.

Kelly said the environment, and wildlife that wander through the property, are amazing to see.

“There’s a mob of kangaroos that come through that are really friendly, and if you wanted, you could sit down and just watch the wildlife go by.”

The block undulates from the road down towards the creek and would certainly lend itself to a garden or elaborate fruit and vegetable plantings.

The property also has shedding, consisting of an extra-wide single garage with plenty of space for a workshop or a guest room/art studio.

Located just 16 minutes from historic Braidwood, this country getaway offers a quiet hideaway with nature at your doorstep. This property would suit a full-time home, special Airbnb or private weekender.
