Berrima 175 Birchalls Lane
Scale, luxury and grandeur all describe the magnificence of 'Birch Hall'...
A sublime country villa that has been designed to house a large extended family while maintaining privacy and seclusion.
Entry is via a beautiful port cochere paved in travertine. Wander through the foyer and a vast central kitchen/dining/living area awaits with vaulted ceilings and views for miles. The luxurious chef's kitchen is made for entertaining, with a double Ilve oven, two dishwashers, a huge walk-in pantry and space for many friends: the current dining table easily seats 14.
There are two distinct wings, each housing a kitchen and two luxurious bathrooms. One wing also houses the palatial master suite including three walk-in robes and two bathrooms, a huge living area and one office, while the other -for family or guests or perhaps an Airbnb - houses a second kitchen and living area, four luxurious bedrooms, another office and two further bathrooms.
Off the four-bedroom wing is a Mediterranean-style walled courtyard with a swimming pool and heated spa. It adjoins an attractive brick barn with exposed timber beams – perfect for large parties or outdoor functions.
With various formal and informal living areas, copious storage areas and stunning interior décor, the home is matched by an incredible location: nip into delightful Berrima in less than ten minutes for coffee then come home and wander down through Eucalypt forest and access a magnificent private swimming hole on the Wingecarribee River.
Approximately half the 42.76 hectare property is cleared, and it was built for small aircraft: landing strips have been formed in the shape of a cross and an aircraft hangar awaits your plane, or your imagination! It adjoins a huge machinery shed, including two animal stalls.

If you are looking to operate an Airbnb from your home, the Southern Highlands has many high-end wedding venues within a short drive of the property, and demand for accommodation outstrips supply.
