Earlsbrae is ideal for large extended family gatherings. With tennis court, spacious grounds, separate cottage accommodation, majestic billiards room, large entertaining areas, grand open fireplaces and sleeping for 19 guests, Earlsbrae is a great holiday destination in its own right. Add to this, the proximity to Bowral's cafes, shops, galleries, the local wineries, and the walking trails nearby, it makes a truly magnificent Highlands getaway.
The house was originally built for an English silk merchant as his summer residence in the 1870s. It has served several uses over the generations, and was for many years the residence of Sir George Fuller who was the premier of NSW on two occasions during the 1920s. Earlsbrae has been lovingly held by the current owners since 1979 and the house has seen a recent restoration project which has brought it back to its former glory. The meticulous attention to period detail and the harmonious renovation of kitchen and bathrooms to provide up to date, luxurious and comfortable accommodation has truly been a labour of love.
In the main house there are 5 bedrooms plus a small media room and a study which double as bedrooms 6 and 7. Add the additional loft bedroom in the original weatherboard workers cottage and the sofa bed in its living room, and there is comfortable accommodation for guests with 4 bathrooms and a powder room in the house and a 5th bathroom in the cottage.
