Many of us dream of a country estate without missing out on the conveniences of the city. At 17 Heritage Drive, Bundanoon, it is all on offer on a luxury property ideal for weekend parties, working from home or just escaping from the trappings of city living.

The five-bedroom property in the Southern Highlands has been designed to separate living and sleeping quarters while perfectly capturing the natural light, cross breezes and views. An open plan living area is at the centre of this recently completed house, characterised by exposed recycled ironbark beams, dormer windows and a sandstone fireplace constructed from local stone.

The Shaker style kitchen is a cook’s delight, with a generous island bench finished in Caesarstone and abundant storage which extends into the butler’s kitchen.

Bi-fold doors fold back to draw guests outside onto the expansive deck to enhance enjoyment of the 4000sqm property. 

For those with a young family or in need of a quiet place to work, a secondary private living area would be ideal as a home office, playroom or home theatre environment. 

Part of The Yards at Bundanoon, this is one of the first homes to be completed on the estate, set to become one of the most desirable addresses in the Southern Highlands.

Plenty of people are looking to get away from it all. But most are reluctant to give up the conveniences and small luxuries of modern living.

This split-level property at 166 Westwood Street, Bridport on the north coast of Tasmania offers both, with direct access to a stunning coastline as well as easy living in a three-bedroom, Hamptons-style home. Just a 10-minute walk from Mermaids Beach in the Granite Point dress circle, the house on a 1206sqm site is a two-hour drive from Devonport and the Spirit of Tasmania terminal port.

Central to the floorplan is a generous, north facing open plan living space with raked ceilings and wraparound bay windows leading onto a sun-filled deck via sliding doors.

Entry is via a spacious reception area with integrated hall table and storage cupboard. A short hallway offers access to the master suite to the right and secondary bedrooms to the left, or through to the open plan living area to the rear.

The master suite includes a built-in robe and stylish, semi open ensuite. Sliding doors lead onto the split level deck, with a spa on the lower side to provide privacy.

The well-appointed kitchen includes a large butler’s pantry, as well as an island bench and bar area with finishes such as Carrara marble chosen to blend seamlessly into the lounge and dining area. A stone fireplace is the main focal point in this room, while ducted heating and aircon ensure that thermal comfort is maintained all year round.

At 334sqm, the house is large enough to provide room for family and friends when required, bt cosy enough for two, without spending unnecessary time on maintenance and cleaning.

With Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm golf courses just 10 minutes away, local wineries and mountain biking at nearby Derby, this is an ideal property for downsizers looking for a little luxury while still feeling connected to nature.
