For Sale Contact Agent

A plethora of country pursuits await the next owner of this spectacular family estate. With 120 acres to bushwalk, ride horses, run stock or simply live the country dream, historic 'Yaraandoo' offers more than just luxury and land.

Just ten minutes' from Berrima village, with its own award-winning vineyard and close to several championship golf courses, the architect-designed main home is crafted over 764 sqm of luxurious living space. There are six beautiful bedrooms including an opulent master suite that provides distant views over vineyards to Mt Jellore. Hiking, fishing and wine-tasting are literally on your doorstep. A large home-office/library caters for those who wish to work from home. There are three full bathrooms plus a powder room, generous living areas built for daytime and evening entertaining and a spectacular 2000-bottle subterranean wine cellar crafted from recycled timbers. A large guest cottage with ornamental lake provides space for extended family or earn income from farm-stay guests. The Southern Highlands is perennially popular for book buyers, antique hunters, golfers, heritage lovers and wedding parties – enjoy the benefits of a thriving tourist industry in the privacy of your own country retreat.

The well-appointed kitchen with professional-style Ilve range has been meticulously designed for those who love to cook. A large central island invites collaboration; a butler's pantry provides extra capacity. Flowing from the kitchen is a beautiful conservatory capturing winter sun and views to a century-old oak tree and the two-acre, English-style garden with a magnificent and expansive fruit and vegetable garden, climbing roses and large deciduous trees for seasonal colour. Approximately 10 of the 55 hectares are planted with grape vines, and productive olive trees (harvested for oil); the remaining land is perfect for grazing or further planting (the neighbouring properties produce truffles and organic garlic). You may wish to utilise the tax advantages involved in primary production, or if you prefer, simply enjoy the serenity and lease the crops/land to local producers.
