This outstanding 60 acre property is nestled at the very end of a small valley & surrounded on three sides by the Dharug National Park. The Hawkesbury River is a short stroll down the driveway. Plenty of space for the whole family, dog, boat & more
The house is built from recycled timbers and has a wonderfully warm and inviting feel. There are two separate living rooms, one with a fire place and both with reverse cycle air conditioning. Both bathrooms have underfloor heating. The main house has 3 bedrooms: King, Queen, Singles x 4 plus a sofa couch in the living room. The cottage has one queen bed, kitchen and bathroom. There is a spare single mattress that can be placed where you need it. The cottage is never rented to another party. The whole valley is yours.
Minimum stay is two nights. Public holidays are either three or four night minimum stay. Xmas and New Year's Eve is a 6 night minimum stay.
The house will be opened when you arrive. The kitchen is jammed with useful items. Plenty of plates, cutlery etc for large family feasts. There is a gas bbq outside with a large dinning area. The pool is for your private use. It has solar heating and a solar blanket which will extend the swimmable weather - definitely not warm enough through Winter. Portable cot and high chair on request.

Other things to note
You can bring one well behaved, house trained family dog that doesn't shed hair. Please do not allow the dog on the couches or beds. Also, please be aware that there are horses on the property and they will kick dogs that chase them. Under no circumstances are the horses to be ridden. Although they are extremely friendly and love a cuddle, riding them would be unsafe.
Smokers outside and please don't discard your butts off the deck! Aargh! Use the rainwater wisely. I supply blue ray music speakers, please don't bring a massive deck thanks! The neighbours can hear the music if it's played through enormous speakers till all hours of the morning. You are limited to 12 guests. No exceptions. The horses on the property are not for riding. They have not been ridden in 10 years. They do love pats and scratches from their human servants.
I'm tall. I don't eat oysters. My favourite movie is Harold and Maud. I once sang a duet with Barry Humphries. He was Ethel Merman, I was Donald O'Connor. I ski, ride horses, play basketball and don't watch reality TV.
I live in Sydney but luckily get to spend time in the country with my family.
