Nestled Beneath the Magnificent Barrengarry Escarpment
Nestled beneath the magnificent Barrengarry escarpment with sweeping views across Kangaroo Valley to the mountain range opposite, lies Birdsong.
If you appreciate solitude and being surrounded by nature but like to take your rustic with a side of luxe, Birdsong might just be your new favourite place. The cottage has been beautifully reimagined in modern country style and sits on five lush green acres backed by ancient rainforest.
Under two hours drive from Sydney, the four-bedroom cottage is an ideal country retreat for couples, families, or a group of friends. The king bed in the master bedroom overlooks a small wooden deck (perfect for your morning coffee) to old-growth cedar trees filled with the sounds of birdsong. A beautiful ensuite adds to the feeling of quiet luxury.
Down the panelled hallway are two further queen bedrooms, one with its own bathroom. The fourth bedroom has both a queen and a loft bed and can sleep two adults, or alternatively makes a fun retreat for two or three children. The house can sleep eight guests comfortably.
Its easy to throw together a quick meal or indulge your cooking passions in the chefs kitchen, which features a SMEG oven, dishwasher, Nespresso machine and microwave. If that sounds like too much effort, the cafes of Kangaroo Valley are under ten minutes drive away. The deck features a gas barbecue and eight-seater outdoor setting with picture-perfect views over the pool and mountainside.
On cooler days, the cosy open log fire beckons after your mountain walks; sit in the leather chair and browse the extensive book collection or just gaze out through the seven-metre picture window to the pastures and escarpment beyond. The sunset views are spectacular - but the ever-changing panorama will keep you captivated throughout your stay. The fire pit, perched high with mountain views, is perfect for endless marshmallows and hot chocolate shared with friends. On lazy summer weekends, sip a cold gin and tonic and enjoy some sunshine by the eight-metre mineral swimming pool.
The lush gardens are a joy to explore with grassy lawns, a paddock with dramatic views to enjoy a sunset picnic, and established trees and flowerbeds that attract wildlife including wallabies, kangaroos, wombats, fairy wrens, lyrebirds and owls.
Modern comforts are catered for, with reverse-cycle air conditioning, WiFi (satellite), and a Bluetooth music system. Towels, pool towels and luxury bedlinen are provided and there is a washer and dryer.
The property has a fenced pool and an unfenced dam, and while children are warmly welcomed, they must be supervised at all times. Pets are considered on request.
