Property type house

About the property

Set on over 4,500sqm, Highcroft is a charming property that backs onto the nature trails of Mount Gibraltar and offers a peaceful retreat with a sunny northern outlook. Highcroft has recently undergone a facelift. It now has a fresher, newer feel! Highcroft Cottage has everything you are seeking for a short country getaway with friends, or a longer family Southern Highlands experience.

Close to the cafes, galleries and antiques stores, Highcroft is easy to find and conveniently located high off the road from Mittagong to Bowral with distant views of rolling hills and bushland. Local vineyards and function centres are very close by, with Corbett Gardens, the Bradman Oval and Museum, golf courses, Bong Bong Street shops and Sturt Gallery are short drives away. Highcroft sits 1.1km from Bowral town centre.

Inside, there are two living areas, three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and culinary kitchen and laundry / mud room. The formal sitting room has stained glass windows and looks north over the rose gardens and circular driveway. It adjoins the dining room and kitchen. The rumpus area is fitted with a large modular lounge suite with views across the courtyard and greater grounds. It adjoins the master bedroom. There is a large 58” flat screen smart TV and DVD player in the rumpus room with a second TV in the main bedroom.

Guests are invited to cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen or fire-up the gas BBQ in the courtyard using fruits, vegetables or herbs from the vast garden.

The green bedroom consists of a queen-sized four poster bed with an en suite. The elegant blue bedroom consists of a queen bed with built in wardrobes, dressing table and window seat. The French styled antique twin room can accommodate 2 singles or a third couple with the beds pushed together. There is a further sofa bed (double) in the sitting room.

The Highcroft gardens are vast, colourful and changing with the seasons. Blossoming plums line the driveway and flower in Spring along with iris, tulips, rhododendrons, camellias, wisteria and lilies, just to name few. Herbs include kaffir lime, parsley, thyme, lavender and Italian celery. Fruit tress include oranges, lemons, apples, pears and fig trees. Children can wander through the fairy garden at the rear of the property or play hide and seek for hours on end amongst the large trees including pines, gums and Japanese maples. There are three outdoor dining areas to choose from for alfresco eating or an afternoon aperitif!

There’s a selection of DVDs, books, cards and board games if it’s a bit chilly outside (or if it starts snowing!). The house has central heating so it is warm and comfortable in the winter months, and due to its elevation on the Gib it stays cool in summer.

Guest Reviews:

“We had the most wonderful time at Highcroft. The house was cosy and beautifully decorated with a gorgeous garden (full of stunning autumn leaves!). We were three couples, one with a new baby and two without, so the bedroom set up with the extra sitting room was just perfect. So close to Bowral shops and wonderful outdoor eating areas in the garden. We had the most spectacular weekend!”

Charming cottage

  • 4 of 5

My 4 friends and I just spent 3 lovely nights in Highcroft cottage. We loved it. The gardens are beautiful with amazing colours. We didn't get time to go on the walks nearby or to really enjoy the garden which we were all disappointed about. An issue with the main TV couldn't be rectified even when the lady from the agency came out but we didn't miss it as we made our own fun with music and games. Would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely go back.
