Magnificent Grand Country Estate Burnside
915 Bells Line of Road, KURRAJONG HILLS
The truly magnificent grand country estate ‘Burnside’ sits on 27 undulating acres with stunning rural views. The original home dates back to 1880 with a large extension sympathetically built to the Victorian period.
The stately mansion is spread over 3 floors including a huge games room downstairs with polished limestone flooring. Discover a beautiful country kitchen with ILVE 900mm gas hob and a cast iron wood stove ideal for baking. There are 6 bedrooms here in total including a large main with ensuite and walk-in robe. The 3 first floor bedrooms all have their own Juliet balcony overlooking this impressive property.
Add to this a grand dining room with French doors leading to wide verandahs with sandstone flagging and cast iron balustrades originally from Sydney Cricket Ground. The large formal lounge has an impressive fireplace and French doors leading to the manicured gardens and sweeping green lawns. Further features in this enchanting home are stunning parquetry floors, original 6 inch timber flooring, 11 foot ceilings, ducted air, a sunroom, office, formal foyer, and timber cedar windows and doors throughout.
Burnside boast wonderful specimen trees including 4 massive Morton Bay Figs believed to be 140 years old. You’ll also find stunning Magnolias and Frangipanis. There’s a second ranch style home on the property with 3 bedrooms, an updated kitchen, and front and rear verandahs. Plus an original cottage believed to date back to the 1800s would make a great studio or Airbnb conversion.
Other improvements are paddocks leading down to the large dam for irrigation, 3 car garage, 4 car carport, and a handy work shed. Burnside is an amazing piece of the Hawkesbury’s history and a beautiful place to call home or even (with council consent) an ideal commercial venture or wedding venue.
