‘Baliston’ A Lakeside Retreat in Bilpin’s Prized Enclave
10 Powells Road, BILPIN
Every so often, you see a property so enchanting it seemingly has a personality of its own. ‘Baliston,’ located within a coveted enclave of Bilpin, is one such property. Beyond its grand entrance gates, this idyllic 10 hectare country estate greets you with a driveway lined with cherry and crab apple trees, leading to the ravishing residence nestled peacefully next to an alluring manmade lake.
Crafted from eco-friendly Timbercrete, this exquisite home is perfectly positioned to embrace the art of waterside living. At its heart, the grand living room dazzles with soaring raked ceilings, a statement open fireplace, and a custom made chandelier. Glass sliding doors and windows envelope this space, framing views across the lake, appearing like living artworks. Nearby is the gorgeous timber kitchen, complete with a walk-in pantry and breakfast nook, adjoined to a cosy dining space with a slow combustion fireplace.
Meanwhile, 3 bedrooms serve as restful retreats, including 2 on the ground floor, one with built-in robes and easy access to the main bathroom, while the other resides upstairs, accompanied by an ensuite. Granting further versatility, there’s a sizable study, storage, and separate studio with ensuite/potential fourth bedroom (STCA).
As you explore the grounds, over 5 acres of established gardens unveil a botanical paradise adorned with countless unique plants and trees. The English inspired walled kitchen garden and whimsical 3 storey medieval tower testify to the estate’s enchanting character. And when the occasion calls for alfresco dining, the extensive gazebo, perched with lakeside vistas, is readily available.
Given how the property rests on the northern rim of the Blue Mountains National Park, hiking and adventure trails are in abundance. Likewise, the sublime Blue Mountains Botanical Gardens is mere minutes away, offering all the more opportunities to revel in natural wonders.
