Rustic charm with a touch of luxury in the Southern Highlands

This is a little bit of Macedonia in the Southern Highlands that could be a weekender, a tree change or just a spacious family home with a touch of luxury.

One Agency principal Kate Maday said the Macedonian builder named it Bitola after a pretty little town in his homeland, and it has a European rustic feel with its use of sandstone and hardwood flooring. It has a price guide of $1,195,000 million.

Only seven years old, this master-built property has been a weekender for its Sydney owners who have enjoyed the warm village lifestyle of Burrawang.

“Burrawang is a gorgeous little community,” Ms Maday said. “The owners said that when they purchased the property they became part of the village immediately.”

Its timber gates and stone entry make a statement about quality from the outset.

The builder put a lot of thought into the design of the property with bedrooms and bathrooms on one side and the living area overlooking the grounds on the other.

“Above the centrally located kitchen he created an attic area with windows to allow the northern sun to stream in,” she said.

In fact, light fills the entire property with large windows, sliding doors on the front deck and Bifold doors opening on to the back deck to ”let the outside in”.


Perfect for al fresco entertaining, the home boasts a gourmet kitchen with Caesarstone benchtops, high-end European appliances, beautifully finished cupboards and walk-in pantry.

It connects to a spacious family room on one side which opens on to the back deck and plentiful dining and living areas on the other, while opening to the front deck in the centre.

The four bedrooms are all carpeted, with the master privately positioned with walk-in and built-in robing and ensuite.

The stunning bathroom has a freestanding bath, stone vanity top and underfloor heating for ultimate comfort.

Ms Maday said the home was climate controlled with zoned, ducted air conditioning, wall and roof cavity insulation and a very effective, touch of a button gas fire in the living area.


With solar panels on the roof, the home is also quite economical to run, she said.

Set on a fully fenced 2000 sq m or just over half an acre, the home looks out to picturesque, landscaped grounds with mature trees.


If you have dogs they would have plenty of room to romp in, just like the owners’ five dogs that have enjoyed their weekends here.

The garage has remote-controlled doors and internal access to the property, which is located at 8 Harman Street Burrawang.
