Bowral 119-127 Merrigang Street
Hidden, elevated and completely private, 'Merriview' is a grand and significant offering in Old Bowral's premier street. Emerging from the heart of over an acre of established cool-climate gardens, this classic weatherboard beauty has been recently renovated in meticulous style. With 5-6 spacious bedrooms plus study, 4.5 bathrooms and 3 large living areas, the home is traditional, rambling and elegant: room after room of gracious family living unfolds, each area with spectacular views across treetops to Mount Gibraltar and Oxley Hill or into one of the many delightful garden rooms that surround the home.
'Merriview's oversized double garage reveals further amenity: above it is a large, luxurious studio, serviced by a full bathroom and plumbed for a kitchenette. Sound-proofed and large enough to operate as an apartment, it has its own entrance facing away from the home and could be rented as an Airbnb or used as an expansive home office with lounge, or a teen retreat.
The garden is equally enchanting: sandstone pathways lead to a fenced chicken run and coop, raised vegetable beds, a divine cubby house and garden shed and an old productive orchard. A floodlit recreational court emerges from behind lush established hedges. Cottage-style plantings and formal borders open to tranquil green spaces; rambling roses and drystone walls weave past spectacular specimen elm and oak planted early last century. The large swimming pool with sandstone surround and lavender hedging has views for miles.
There is so much to admire about this home, but a few of 'Merriview's' special features include:
An enormous, spectacular shaker-style country kitchen/dining room (recently renovated) which includes 'Armani Classico' stone bench-tops, handmade Spanish tile splash-backs, walk-in pantry and Miele appliances throughout (including two ovens)Master suite with huge walk-in robe plus double-sized luxury ensuiteHydronic radiator heating throughout; 3 wood fireplaces for country warmth and ambienceAlarm systemUp to 3 metre ceilingsThomas O'Brien pendantsNew wool carpets; beautiful hardwood floorboardsA dedicated wet bar with wine fridgesMany sets of French doors to countless outdoor vistas and seating areasAutomatic irrigation to garden; extensive garden lightingUnderfloor heating in bathrooms and en-suites
With its delightful entry foyers, bay windows, period features and grand proportions, this home represents the quintessence of Old Bowral charm. It is a rare opportunity that a home of such timeless beauty and just a walk to Bowral's town centre is so magnificently restored.
