Rosehill Farm, a 111-acre Southern Highlands property with a neo-Georgian manse, has listed for $6.7m. The property - situated at the end of Kia Ora Lane in Kangaloon, one of the region’s most prestigious pockets - was acquired in 2004 for $1.45m as a vacant piece of land that included creek-frontage, a pocket of rainforest, and a unique vistas of tree-filled hillsides. The owners then undertook the construction of a significant estate; and, perhaps even pricier than the home construction, set out to improve the lands with extensive walled gardens, outbuildings, barns, sheds, and flat land suitable for equestrian facilities.
The Radical Terrace has actually spent many a weekend at this property and was always impressed with the efficient (and New England-reminiscent) floor plan and the extreme isolation of the property, unique even for the Southern Highlands. The only downside? A pool would have made things a bit more fun, but the muddy damn definitely accomplished much the same.
Pricing the property with an exact price - $6,700,000 - seems to be an increasing trend in the Southern Highlands, where Rosehill Farm joins about ten other $5m+/100-acre/modern-homestead properties. So the competition is steep, but so is the replacement value for this home. We don’t imagine this property stagnating on the market long, but you never know with the Southern Highlands.
