Inground pool, tennis court, high-spec finishes, three separate dwellings, six bedrooms and four bathrooms on two and a half acres of landscaped gardens in the picturesque Kangaroo Valley at Barrengarry – this is Camp David, the luxurious rural residence at 45 Cavan Road, Barrengarry, now on the market through Belle Property Berry principal Nick Dale.

The home’s landscaped gardens include the cobbled Tanners Creek bed, manicured lawns and topiary features, a paved, tree-lined driveway, and immaculate hedges.

The home recalls the Hamptons, with white walls and paved courtyards providing an elegant and relaxed presence, with a coastal lifestyle. The home is only 30 to 40 minutes from the coast, providing access to the beach, located on the eastern side of the Great Dividing Range, ensuring a moderate coastal climate.

The floorplan of the home provides an enormous amount of flexibility. The entrance to the main residence is through the pergola and courtyard into a foyer, from which the home unfolds. The stairs to the second level are located centrally, while the open plan kitchen/dining area sets the relaxed tone for the home.

Slate tiles on the floors and French doors and windows continue the Hamptons-style theme, with light streaming in from the plentiful windows and doors. The kitchen has a granite island bench with a built-in stainless steel dishwasher, rangehood, and a spacious walk-in pantry. Overhead fans cool the room, and dining will be delightful overlooking the inground pool. The formal lounge has double-height ceilings, and a combustion stove will keep the home warm in the winter. It’s a beautiful formal living space and a powder room is conveniently at hand.

The master bedroom of the main residence sits behind the formal lounge and features a spa-like bathroom and plenty of room. The bedroom is connected to the laundry via a breezeway, and has reverse-cycle air conditioning, LED downlights and an overhead fan.

The second floor of the main residence features two more bedrooms and a bathroom, with a rumpus area at the top of the stairs. They are brightly lit and tucked up under the eaves providing interesting visual angles, with dormer windows and exposed beams.


One of the bedrooms sits snugly under the eaves.

With a separate entrance, the second residence sits under the same roof, but behind the master bedroom. This part of the residence has a ground floor family room, while the second floor has a bedroom and family bathroom.

The third residence has a ground-floor gym, and a bathroom on the first floor, with an open space that can be used as a bedroom.

Belle Property Berry Principal Nick Dale said the home is extremely flexible, with plenty of living space and versatile rooms that can be used for family, guests, or even a bed and breakfast opportunity.

“The brilliant thing about this home is its flexibility. There are plenty of different ways to use the home as a whole floorplan, or as separate accommodation for family members,” Mr Dale said.

“The gardens are immaculate, and the views are unmatched. It’s so close to Nowra, Berry and Fitzroy Falls, it’s convenient to the beach, and it is an ideal home for people who need flexibility with living arrangements.”
