About the property

"Elsmore" Cottage

This little cottage started it's life as a one room gardener's hut around the turn of the nineteenth century. It remained reasonably untouched until the early 1990's when it was extended and modernised. The land was used until the 1960's as a flower farm with Dahlias and Gladioli grown. Many of the dry stone walled terraces can still be seen on the property. Elsmore is also renowned for it's Rhododendrons with their huge pink flowers on display from late September until early November. While 8 mins walk to the Imperial Hotel, "Elsmore" is a true hideaway. It is also within walking distance of local bush walks and rock climbing areas.

The house is ideal for couples seeking a quiet and cosy getaway or for families. There is a rear deck for a morning coffee or an afternoon refreshment.

Elsmore is hidden in the trees surrounded by gums and rhododendrons, which display a mass of pink flowers in spring.
