About John Bowers & Justin Hutchinson

BP has had a succession of of owners since WW 11.

All bringing charm & character.

We are now probably the longest family in residence & hope to keep it that way.

We try to be true to the past but move forward to the future.

We genuinely believe that in coming through the gates of BP you will experience something pretty special away from the bustle of the first quarter of the 21 st Century.

We know the Southern Highlands pretty well & are happy to make suggestions.

Why John Bowers & Justin Hutchinson chose Bowral

Beatrice Park is designed by Aaron BOLOT,Architect & Modernist who worked with Burley GRIFFITH & much later a young Harry Seidler.

The RAIA makes the periodic BOLOT award for excellence in modernist apartments following on on the tradition of some of his gems in Potts Point such as ASHDOWN & the WYLDE Apartments.

BP sits on a acre & a half of heritage gardens planned & planted by the same horticulturalist as the Rose gardens at Old Parliament House,Canberra.

Your own Highlands Home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful old home with Art Deco features, antiques and artefacts set in established gardens, within walking distance to town and hatted restaurant;add charmingly thoughtful experienced owners; blend with wine tasting, drives and walks and you have perfection. The experience cannot be faulted and you feel as though you have a country home that someone else maintains beautifully.

Lovely house and gardens in Bowral's heart

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted to get out of Sydney for a few days and came across Beatrice Park on stayz. What a wonderful house, elegantly furnished and great central heating (it was bitterly cold the first few days in Bowral!). It was like stepping into someone's home and minding it for them while they went away for a few days. The owner was polite and very helpful. Thank you!

Central to Town

  • 5 of 5

Beatrice Park had everything we needed for a great four day stay. A home away from home, it was clean, comfortable, well presented, spacious, and easy access to all golf courses in the Southern Highlands. Interesting antiques on display along with photos that one would assume are family photos taken in the late 30's made for an interesting browse. The gardens are just wonderful and the home is very private.

We loved this house. It really was a home away from home. Everything about your service was professional and friendly from start to finish. My emails where replied to straight away, communication was excellent. The house is in top condition, really clean and well taken care of. My only regret is that we didnt stay longer. Thank you for an amazing holiday, we needed it.
