An exquisite homestead, a beautiful second residence, magnificent horse facilities, a vast machinery shed, 42 acres of rolling green hills including a large pocket of rainforest, a trout-filled babbling creek, avenues of pear trees and the most beautiful of landscapes: 'Rivendell' is a Southern Highlands estate of unrivalled perfection.

Privately sited behind electric entrance gates, the luxurious main residence is settled amongst beautiful landscaping and grounded with bluestone exterior walls and natural weatherboard. Between the incredible homestead and the large, three-bedroom second residence, stunning cottage gardens frame the views, specifically planted to attract birds, butterflies and bees. Adjacent parterre gardens create a sense of European luxury, with a fountain and fishponds completing the picture. Wander through extensive raised vegetable beds, netted strawberry patches, an arboretum for autumnal colour and large entertaining decks, then relax by the magnificent freshwater swimming pool. Visit the raised meditation deck built within the branches of a significant old Cedar of Lebanon tree.

Inside the main residence, bucolic pastures are viewed from every oversized picture window. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining area boasts raked ceilings, built-in window seats and a large open fire with a beautiful reveal built from sandstone sourced on the property. It is perfectly sited for northerly sun. The kitchen is framed by a six-metre island bench, with benchtops of stone and stainless steel. Two ovens (one steam), under-bench drawer fridge and high-quality appliances plus a large butler's pantry are features of the chef's kitchen. Wide engineered oak floorboards are hydronically heated from the slab beneath. Double glazing and extensive insulation keep the house beautifully temperate. There is also reverse-cycle air conditioning if needed. The home has a ducted vacuuming system throughout.

A large family/sitting room also doubles as a music room; an integrated home office has been cleverly designed to be hidden behind sliding doors. Exquisitely styled bedrooms and bathrooms provide spacious luxury: the master retreat is vast and calming with sliding doors opening to more rolling green hills.

Located just minutes from Robertson's delightful village atmosphere, including galleries, great cafés, an excellent pub and a wine bar, 'Rivendell' is an easy drive to Bowral, Moss Vale and Mittagong to access world class private schools, golf clubs, eateries and boutique shopping.
