'Hambledon' C1850


The delightful c1850s cottage-frontage of 'Hambledon' belies the scope and romantic grandeur of the extraordinary, family-sized home beyond. Equally impressive are the coveted borrowed-views of rolling hills that stretch to the horizon and the English-style garden with century-old exotic trees. With high ceilings, traditional lining boards, a heart-stopping country kitchen with Falcon range and both log and gas fireplaces, the heritage charm of 'Hambledon' is immense. Add a large study, four substantial bedrooms (three with ensuites), formal dining room, large living room with views and a beautiful eat-in conservatory that opens through French doors to a magnificent garden, and the package begins to reveal itself.

In addition, an enormous studio known as 'the barn' is just a stroll across your manicured back lawns. Currently used as a gym and storage, the enchanting 100 sqm-building already contains an impressive kitchen and large fifth bathroom. It awaits your final touches to create a bedroom and living area to transform it to guest accommodation; rent 'the barn' on Airbnb or use for lucky guests or a home business. DA approval exists for a double garage and new guest accommodation if desired.

The interiors of 'Hambledon' have been thoughtfully curated: Ralph Lauren feature lighting, custom-made oak bathroom cabinets and stunning sisal carpets in bedrooms provide a timeless elegance. Climate comfort is achieved through reverse-cycle ducted air-conditioning, fireplaces and heated floors in bathrooms and the loungeroom.

The garden features automated sprinkler systems and is awash with romance; lavender, hydrangeas and a dedicated rose garden are surrounded by specimen oaks, large magnolias and a magnificent ancient maple tree.

Burrawang is the prettiest of the Southern Highlands' villages, known for its Autumnal colour, artisan farms and Easter market. It is home to a divine primary school and a hall that hosts visiting arts performances. Awarded as one of NSW's top pubs, the picturesque Burrawang Hotel is a short stroll along the street, as is the home base of the renowned What If Society, where you can grab sustainably sourced foods, baked goods and coffee. Burrawang is located 40 minutes from the surf beaches of the South Coast, twenty minutes from Kangaroo Valley and fifteen minutes from Bowral which offers excellent schools, hospitals and a vibrant cultural life.

One of the original homes in the Southern Highlands, 'Hambledon' is settled on a beautiful half-acre that appears to go on forever: it offers the romance of the countryside, complete privacy and extraordinary village amenity without the maintenance of a large property holding. With perfect north-to-rear orientation, the winter sunshine and arresting mists that roll over the hillsides beyond are just excerpts of the ever-changing theatre of nature at your back door. This property is pure magic.
