Nestled within the coastal countryside opposite The Briars historic property, this majestic homestead and barn cottage on 5.5 (approx.) acres offers a dreamy picturesque setting that delivers country serenity just moments from Mt Martha village cafes and sandy coastline. Behind a long driveway through a private woodland and three horse paddocks, the three-bedroom 1860s colonial home marries old-world charm with contemporary comfort featuring a wide verandah overlooking an in-ground swimming pool, crackling period fireplace, parents' spa ensuite/retreat, while a large "barn" is ideal for guests as a billiards room or large home office. Built by Scottish stone mason Robert Olley, the home also features a stone-topped French provincial kitchen, impressive dining conservatory, entertaining terrace among showpiece gardens, small orchard and original water well. The property also has dual access from Tal Tals Crescent and Nepean Highway. Lawn maintenance is included.
