The beautiful Highlands Village of Robertson is enjoying a renaissance as a hub of cool creativity, fabulous food and close community. Cresting the escarpment, this area is blessed with abundant rainfall, fertile land, and beauty in every direction. Tree-changers, retirees and city escapists are seizing the opportunity to move to this rare part of the world.
Situated down a sheltered country road, lined with trees and lush bushland, is beautiful 'Argyle Grange,' 55 Fountaindale Road, Robertson. Surrounded on 3 sides by farmland with breathtaking views to the Kangaroo Valley escarpment, the long entrance provides absolute privacy.
'Argyle Grange' rests on 4.4acres of prime Robertson country, a unique holding as beautiful as it is rare. Gently sloping to flat paddocks, nestled on a saddle, away from the noise, above the cold air, protected from high winds. A dreamscape of gorgeous garden with stunning views to the distant rolling hills and beyond; views that are exclusively yours, reaching to the skies.
Country cottage, separate newly renovated studio, workshop ripe for conversion and an assortment of outbuildings, fenced gardens and sheds make up 'Argyle Grange', offering opportunities as rich as the land upon which it resides. Absolute privacy and seclusion, snug comfort and views to die for - all within easy reach of the village centre.
Six separate paddock areas to move and manage livestock, with fencing suitable for cows or sheep.
From the moment you enter, the cottage wraps you in warmth and comfort. The AGA stove infuses the entire home with a gentle and consistent heat. Galley kitchen connects to casual dining and living spaces. Views pour through French doors with access to the wrapped verandah, replenishing your spirit as you enjoy your morning coffee, or soothing you at days end.
The hallway leads to formal sitting and dining spaces that are elegant, warmed with a slow combustion heater. Additional French doors open to stairs that flow to the established magical gardens.
Three cosy bedrooms with two bathrooms, main with large clawfoot bath and facing distant views to the east, complete a warm home that feels loving and sits snugly within its garden surrounds.
There is an ease to how the cottage flows from comfort to garden wonder and finally to majestic vistas - you are carried by its magic. Every view delights as the light moves through the moods and moments of the days and seasons, elevating you time and again by its incredible variety.
Down a secret pathway of Camellia and Hydrangeas is this newly renovated hideaway. Beautifully transformed throughout with panelled walls and timber floors, these are gorgeous guest quarters, short-stay accommodation or artists retreat. The bathroom is sleek and neat. The balcony provides your own private viewing platform for taking in the glorious country outlook.
The garden is a wonderland of well-established hedges, treed avenues standing in sentinel rows and fruit-bearing trees that offer a tasty bounty.
Vistas from the house and garden capture old specimen trees providing endless interest and colour through the seasons. Numerous 'garden rooms' offer a diverse range of uses, eg: the serene garden next to the Birch avenue could even be used as a setting for a wedding. There is also an ornamental pond complete with water lilies.
