MAGNIFICENT SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS ESTATE

A GRAND RURAL RETREAT

Located at the end of a 1.5 kilometre driveway, Mandalay occupies a prominent position overlooking Morton National Park and the Bundanoon Gorge. The estate is ideally organised for cattle grazing, encompassing fourteen paddocks, two creeks, five dams and natural springs, balanced by a healthy coverage of natural bushland.

Along with a large shed for hay, tractor and equipment storage, this working property includes new metal cattle yards. The property includes a three-bedroom caretaker’s or guest cottage with its own separate driveway entrance from Bundanoon Road.

BRITISH COLONIAL-STYLE MANOR

7 BEDS | 7.5 BATHS

Held by just one family since the home was built in 1992, Mandalay’s magnificent two-storey British Colonial-style residence was modelled on a prominent circa-1900 mansion in Singapore.

Impeccably presented, timelessly elegant and constructed to the highest standards, the stately two-storey residence accommodates seven bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, including a large master suite. Ideal for entertaining, the refined formal and casual living spaces are generous and abundant, including an upper level family room/studio and a paneled study.

BESPOKE LUXURY AT ITS FINEST

RICH IN DETAIL, IMPECCABLY CRAFTED

The beautiful kitchen takes cues from classic French provincial design, with terracotta tiled floors, travertine benches and hand painted cabinetry. Twin farmhouse sinks and twin dishwashers make entertaining effortless.

Ceilings soar 13 feet, double doors open to beautiful terraces and the three fireplaces feature beautiful surrounds. The study is finished in bespoke timber paneling and the double staircase was custom crafted from turned timber.

A HOST OF PRESTIGE INCLUSIONS

ULTIMATE STYLE AND COMFORT

No detail has been overlooked in the pursuit of the highest standards. Unwind in the custom built Tylo sauna and store your finest vintages in the 3,800 bottle wine cellar. Every door and window has been custom made and is double glazed, triple garaging accommodates your vehicles and a back to base alarm system provides state of the art security.

Along with a gas hot water system and town water, there is under-floor heating plus wall-mounted heaters for all year-round comfort. Wingecarribee Council provides a weekly rubbish collection service. 

MAGNIFICENT FORMAL GARDENS

TENNIS OR CROQUET ANYONE?

Reminiscent of classic English gardens, the breathtaking grounds were designed by renowned landscape architect James Pfeiffer, incorporating a beautiful walled rose garden and a large front lawn with ample space to land a helicopter.

A series of walks – the maple walk, the hydrangea walk and the wisteria walk – meander past a croquet lawn, a north-south tennis court, a vegetable garden and an established orchard. A broad Haddonstone paved terrace surrounds the house on two sides, with easterly views over Morton National Park. An automatic watering system is fed from a 105,000 litre concrete tank topped up by a spring-fed dam.
