'Greyladyes Farm' Mittagong
Twenty-five acres perched across the edge of Mt Gibraltar with unimpeded views to the Blue Mountains and Sydney - 'Greyladyes Farm' is unique offering, Southern Highlands rolling green parklands and natural bushland reserve. Scattered among the grounds sit various offerings: an expansive and beautiful contemporary main home designed by celebrated Australian architect Peter Stronach with a gleaming wet-edge swimming pool; a newly renovated manager's cottage; three luxury glamping tents nestled into a private bush setting, horse facilities and more: the options are endless.
Nicholas Bray low maintenance landscaped gardens have been designed to harmonise with the contemporary aesthetic; magnificent formal wave-like hedging along the driveway gives way to mounds of native grasses that create a series of framed views, using the borrowed landscape to create drama and interest. The property is subdivisible (STCA).

Manager's Cottage and Outbuildings
The spacious manager cottage with two bedroom's it is a quintessential country cottage with exposed beams and picture windows that provide views to the lovely garden. Located next to the cottage is the machinery shed, tool shed, and storage shed.
Recently installed along a new private road, or accessible by extensively landscaped pathways, meander towards the private 'glamping' zone, where three large tents have been privately situated in a bush setting. Each tent has a large open-plan bedroom and living area. A C-bus smart system on your phone controls the integrated lighting and electronics. The glamping 'tents' each have glass doors that provide bush views.
A little further along sits a timber entertaining hut with all amenities, and with a large firepit that provides a central gathering point. These structures are an incredible guest offering.
'Greyladyes Farm' is attached to mains water but also has a bore and several water tanks. Newly installed horse fencing and facilities are an attractive addition to this utterly private and unassuming retreat that feels as though it sits at the edge of the world.
