This has seen the property crowned the fifth most viewed property in Australia on the property portal and second in NSW this past week.
Number one in Australia and NSW is an epic residence known as Nautilus, which has been described as “Australia’s best house” with pricing expectations set over $50 million.
The Kangaroo Valley property is being offered to buyers through Raine and Horne — Southern Highlands’ Frank Barker who has set a $5.5 million to $6 million guide.

Mr Barker said the Covid-19 lockdown had seen an incredible volume of buyer activity from those in Sydney looking to make the move to the Southern Highlands.
“We saw an overwhelming wave of activity since last year’s lockdown, but demand for property keeps finding a way to go higher and higher,” he said.
“This latest lockdown has triggered a whole new wave of buyers who want to make the move.”

Known as “The Pavilion”, the property is described as an immaculate country property in one of the Kangaroo Valley’s most sought after pockets.
It offers a 500sqm bespoke residence with character features, a heated swimming pool, studio barn, stables and paddocks.
Mr Barker said the big draw card for buyers to this property had been the handcrafted house built with no expense spared.

There are also 60 solar panels, a garage, sheds, three dams, a 90,000 litre filtered water tank and a mini plantation.
