A COUNTRY ESCAPE.
Need to escape the city? Wouldn't a house in the country be a great get away!
Why not retreat to the Highlands and enjoy the fresh air, cool temperature, rolling hills and wonderful self-contained accommodation offered at Highfield Cottage.
Just 90 minutes from Sydney and Canberra, Highfield Cottage is nestled on Mt Gingenbullen or what was locally known as "Judges Hill".
The property was owned by Judge W G Walker who built Highfield Cottage as the Gate Keeper's Lodge in the Queen Anne Federation style to complement the main homestead built in 1901.
The prestigious entrance to the property is marked with Bundanoon sandstone and black, wrought iron, antique gates.
You will be immediately astonished by the huge pine trees lining the driveway as you meander your way up to the Cottage and survey the surrounding stunning 360 degree Highland views.
