Bowral 27 Gordon Road
Covetable, quaint and breathtakingly elegant, this c1910 Old Bowral cottage certainly belongs in the pages of Country Style Magazine, where it was once a featured property. The old-world romance of 'Gnangara' is seen in the original weatherboard home with its high ceilings, timber floorboards and timber lining board on walls and ceilings but has been stylishly enhanced by a contemporary rear extension with 'wow-factor'. Custom-made e-glass picture windows from floor to soaring ceiling are draped in deciduous ornamental grape vine, for shade in summer, stunning colour in Autumn and lovely garden views when winter arrives.
A family home, a weekender or a downsizer, the versatility of 'Gnangara' is impressive: the main home contains 3-4 bedrooms (depending on configuration) with custom built storage, including two with walk-in robes. A freestanding studio in the garden contains another bedroom, a garden shed and a home office.
Within the main home there is also a large working artist's retreat/studio. With its light, height and copious storage, usage of this space is limited only by your imagination.
Other features of this amazing home include:
