"Bellevue Park" Links Road, BurradooHouse
Privately positioned from Links Road, decorative, traditional Deco iron gates provide glimpses of this imposing country residence, set amid more than an acre and a half of established gardens, at the end of a circular driveway.
From its Art Deco porte cochere to the interior, the original architectural detail, authentic lighting and feature fittings have been meticulously retained and restored.
An elegant entrance foyer with detailed timber panelling opens on one side to the exquisite, north-facing formal living room with huge picture windows, open fire and original semi-circular window seat, securing sweeping views of the garden. Opposite, the equally gracious formal dining room has access to a north-west-facing sunroom.
Of vast proportions, and redolent of an English gentleman's club from a bygone era, the grand ballroom/billiard room has as its focus an imposing open fire place, surrounded by original banquette seating.
Further entertaining areas include a first-floor, north-facing sun terrace with massive covered awning overlooking the gardens and golf course beyond.
The large, well-designed eat-in kitchen has been renovated in a sympathetic Deco style that retains the original servery to the dining room, while incorporating contemporary inclusions.
Separate guest and private staircases lead to the five character-filled bedrooms, master with ensuite, original family bathroom with bath, and adjacent covered sundeck.
In its private and tranquil setting, yet only a short stroll to Bowral's café society, this residence is perfect for sophisticated entertaining on a lavish scale, a wonderful family home and generational legacy.
