This stunning country estate features approximately 4 ha (10 acres) of parklike gardens with superb September daffodil displays and summer scented rose gardens, enjoying a charming lake backdrop and heated swimming pool. The vast spreading garden features weeping willows, rhododendron and birch groves, a beautiful tea rose garden and tranquil settings for relaxation whether in the summer house or by the quiet Goose Lake.
‘Chapel House’, the main residence offers generous accommodation with formal and informal living and entertaining areas and a large country kitchen. The property includes the original Queen Victoria Inn with stone verandah and ‘The Owl Pen’, a delightful 2 bedroom guest accommodation wing.
This historic property has dams, seven paddocks, yards and laneways. Water is a special feature with a bore and historic weir, plus numerous springs making this property eminently suitable for cultivation and livestock. The land suits llamas, alpacas or viticulture. The scope is limited only by the imagination.
The setting provides an artist’s haven, with a large studio, previously that of famous Australian artist, John Olsen. There are first class equestrian facilities and a 1,000 bottle underground wine cellar. Something for everyone. The extent of facilities at ‘Chapel House’ is unrivalled for small rural properties and offers an extraordinary lifestyle for those seeking to have a significant country retreat.
The location close to the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Bathurst, offers the opportunity for a myriad of uses of this spectacular historic hideaway located approximately 2.5 hours drive from Sydney.
