This picturesque Braidwood home, set in a stunning rambling country garden and 193 acres of grazing country, is the pinnacle of country living.
Featuring a north-facing open-plan living room flowing out onto an elegant local granite stone courtyard, 235 Brightside Road is sure to impress those buyers wanting something very special.
Belle Property real estate agent Kelly Allen said this was her favourite property of the year.
“Every year, I choose a property of the year, and this one has won it hands down,” she said.
“It has the ultimate combo of great grazing land and a cozy period feel in the home.”
The house has been fully renovated in recent years, taking great care to retain original period features throughout.
A country-style eat-in kitchen boasts Carrera Stone tops and a 900mm Belling oven.
The master bedroom has a cosy gas fireplace and French doors opening out onto the courtyard, under a wisteria and rose-covered pergola.
There are two good size bedrooms and a study, the main bathroom with a clawfoot tub and a mud room with a shower and toilet.
Outside you will find a character-filled ‘Shearers Quarters’ that’s been reborn as a delightful guest cottage with a bedroom, bathroom with original claw foot tub, sitting room and dining opening out onto a sunny verandah with a pergola.
Kelly said there was a lot to love about this property.
“The home has been beautifully restored, keeping its character and period features intact. You also have productive grazing land for farmers with plenty of space with sheds and the renovated Shearers Quarters is the icing on the cake,” she said.
The 193 acres of undulating grazing land, located just 12 km from the historic township of Braidwood and just over three hours to Sydney, is divided into five large paddocks and one small holding paddock. Permanent water is available via a licensed hi-flow bore to five troughs, three wells and nine dams (some spring-fed). There is also a very good set of professional steel cattle yards.
Shedding consists of a double garage with workshop space plus an additional outbuilding next to the house, which was once the smokehouse, an old pump house and shearers bathroom, now a useful garden/storage shed.
