Southern Highlands may not be the first place that springs to your mind when you think of islands, but this property will change that mindset.
The 30.35ha estate not only has its own island with treehouse that is connected by a wooden bridge, but it also has 4.6ha of manicured parklands.
Pepper Tree Creek Estate is located at 2128 Kangaloon Rd, Kangaloon and is on the market with a $6.5 million guide.
Di Jones agent Kate McCullagh is currently seeking expressions of interest, but said early feedback has been phenomenal.
“I don’t think we’ve ever had as many international inquires for a property as this one,” she said.
“We’ve been contacted by people who live in the UK, USA, Dubai, Singapore, and of course many locals.”
The five-bedroom property overlooks the rolling green hills of Kangaloon and is a testament to the vendors’ hardwork over the past 11 years.
“When they bought it, there was nothing here except for a stone cottage and a derelict old diary,” she said.
Ms McCullagh said the current vendors have turned this property into one of the best homes in the Southern Highlands.
“There are a lot of beautiful properties in the area, but this one is just a step up from the rest,” she said.
“The attention to detail, both inside and out, is just incredible.”
Overlooking the private lake, the property has a multitude of living zones and large outdoor undercover entertaining spaces.
The original stone cottage made of stone mined from the property still remains and forms part of the main residence that features four bedrooms and a garage.
The “Old Dairy” has been transformed and is a one bedroom self contained cottage that could be used by guests or a caretaker.
There is also 4.6ha of manicured lawns and 1.6 ha of gardens beside the “Old Dairy”. These gardens even include a veggie patch.
Ms McCullagh expects the buyer will be someone who is either after a weekender, something with a bit of space or to use as a farm.
“It is a working farm and comes with several paddocks,” she said.
The property is connected to town water, while the gardens are irrigated on timer systems, with water coming from the lake. All paddocks have gravity fed spring fed troughs as well.
