The Old Koonabulla Dairy
Charming four bedroom home in Upper Kangaroo River
I go to nature to be soothed and healed and to have my senses put in order This is a quote from John Burrows, but describes how you will feel from the moment you drive down the driveway of big maple trees to the house, the escarpment views open and you are immediately surrounded by the many different shades of green, old roses, iris and fruit trees in the the old established garden .

The main home has just been newly refitted by an interior designer Leigh Holt . Boasting an eclectic mix of rustic antiques, contemporary art and treasured furnishings, you'll be enveloped by the colours and beauty the property and the area.
Get warm and cozy in the lounge room, where an open log fire and an outlook to the magnificent escarpment will make for your complete comfort.
To the rear of the house you can pick from the many fruit trees throughout the seasons including figs, plums, oranges, mandarins & persimmons to name a few. Or sit under the old Japenese Maple, Oak trees or large pines all providing a different aspect.
There are also big enclosed vegetable gardens filled with strawberries, lettuces, herbs and salad requirements to sample for your enjoyment.
Don't be surprised if the neighbouring alpacas or highland cows wander down the driveway to meet you.
Escape from the city to this magical old property and let it revive you, the warm sun, soft breezes, big blue skies and wonderful escarpment views are a luxury for many of us living in a fast paced world where the hustle and bustle is replaced with tranquility and the sounds of nature.
