A little known escarpment estate, just down the road from Australia’s most exclusive 6-star resort is gaining huge interest.
A little known escarpment estate, just down the road from Australia’s most exclusive, and probably most expensive, 6-star resort is gaining incredible interest from prospective buyers.
The stunning architecturally designed eco-retreat – named Barton – that sits on a 52ha (133 acre) estate at Wolgan Valley, in NSW’s Central Tablelands, has attracted an unprecedented 500 enquiries after being listed through LJ Hooker Lithgow.
It is just down the road from the famous six-star Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley, which offers rooms at around $3100 a night.
Barton includes a stylish two-bedroom cabin with magnificent escarpment views at 2007 Wolgan Road, Wolgan Valley, NSW.
LJ Hooker Lithgow Agent Jamie Giokaris said the very strong level of interest reflected the unique nature of the property and its location.
“Wolgan Valley is a tightly held area with a reputation for exclusivity given that the Emirates six-star resort is also located there,” he said.
“The response is something I’ve not seen in 29 years working in the industry. It is all Sydney-based interest – there is a craving for people to get out of the city and find some peace and quiet.
“There is also the recognition that Wolgan Valley is a picturesque and very special destination.”
The property, adjoins the Gardens of Stones National Parkand is a mix of grazing and natural bushland with two dams.
“This stylish and comfortable weekender features fantastic natural light and ever-changing vistas from both inside and outside toward the cliff faces and mountain escarpments,” the listing reads.
“Some of the people who attended our last open home have stayed at the Emirates resort but what we are selling is not a six-star resort – this is getting back to nature and that is a big part of the attraction although there is potential to add another residence,” Mr Giokaris said.
“The owners have deliberately gone for a fairly simple layout – there is a landline telephone, the home is deliberately not connected to internet and is set up with ‘get-off-the-grid’ solar energy.
“There are no close neighbours – you can’t see another soul from the residence – all you can see is the cliffs, the birds in the trees along with kangaroos, wallabies and wombats.”
The property is located about two hours and 45-minutes west of Sydney. Wolgan Valley also offers an abundance of outdoor adventure including bushwalking, rock climbing and exploring the Glow Worm Tunnel and Newnes industrial ruins.
It is scheduled to be auctioned at LJ Hooker Lithgow’s rooms on Saturday, 9 April at 11:00am.
