Montrose House estate is set on 33 acres of old English gardens, surrounded by orchards and rolling pastures.
A magnificent heritage-listed homestead (c1861) and popular wedding and accommodation destination since 1988. The estate is a well-known wedding venue in the Southern Highlands.
This is a rare opportunity to secure an elegant country residence, steeped in history while generating additional revenue through the estate's various commercial concerns. Montrose House and the estate includes a heritage-listed homestead and garden.
Horticulturally-significant trees are found throughout the grounds which provide a unique backdrop for wedding ceremonies.
Within the estate there is also a two-bedroom cottage, traditional keystone barn (used as a wedding venue), berry farm and shop, plus farm outbuildings.
The main homestead on the estate is heritage-listed, built c1861-1880's. It is an approved B&B and the heritage rooms are also approved for use for weddings.
Two additional wings were seamlessly added around 1990, to extend the kitchen/dining space and provide additional bedrooms in the east wing. A covered wrap-around verandah at the front of the homestead is the perfect space for entertaining and enjoying the mature trees of the heritage listed garden.
The original features and finer details of the house have been preserved and lovingly maintained. The showpiece of the homestead are the rarely-seen high Wunderlich ceiling and walls within the formal dining room. The large open-plan kitchen is the heart of the home and a country cook's dream. Stone benchtops, island-bench dishwasher, enclosed pantry, and two ovens. A woodfired Esse and Belling six-gas burner with electric oven. A six-seater, informal dining table is perfectly-positioned in front of a large bay window that directly overlooks the courtyard and receives the morning sun.
The English bond brickwork barn boasts solid Tallowood flooring and is draped in vines,a perfect environment for weddings. The barn can seat up to 140 dining guests and catering can be provided through its well-equipped commercial kitchen.
Montrose Cottage is a self-contained two-bedroom cottage that sleeps four and overlooks the stunning grounds and barn. Guests are able to unwind and relax by the open fireplace and enjoy the surrounding scenery. The cottage is DA approved and is regularly rented out for weekend stays and holiday periods and provides a consistent revenue stream. Montrose Berry Farm is a working farm. Until recently it produced a wide variety of berries, fruit and artisanal berry products and was also open to the public for "pick your own" days. Jams, vinegars, pickles and the famous berry pies were also available to purchase at the council-approved farm stall.
