Snaking along a ridge at the top of Berry Mountain, Tourist Road is one of the South Coast's most exclusive addresses, offering mountain-top living and commanding views within easy reach of coastal beaches and the towns of Berry and Kangaroo Valley.
Overlooking the farmland, forests and rugged escarpments of Kangaroo Valley, Randmont's 8.42 acres face north with views towards Sydney. "At night you can see the city lights in the far distance, and at dawn watch morning sun's rays filter through majestic trees and bring into view the valleys and mountains beyond. It just takes your breath away." say the current owners.
The husband, with an architectural background working in the construction industry, and wife designed the spacious, light-filled home themselves, spending almost two years refining the design to suit the site and take maximum advantage of the views.
"It's a truly unique dwelling," say the owners, "and the location is stunning. Here, we're surrounded by nature. There are wombats and birds and wallabies that come and have a drink from the dam, and there are lovely walks around the property through virgin rainforest to natural springs. The house is positioned really well. It's tucked into the hillside so we don't get the southerly wind or westerlies at the rear and in summer there's always a nice breeze off the valley that wafts through the place with beautiful scents of flowering plants."
The house, built of solid brick with a tiled roof, comprises five generous bedrooms, including main bedroom with ensuite bathroom and walk in robe, main bathroom and spacious open plan kitchen, dining, bar and living area leading out to an outdoor entertaining area overlooking a dam and another large deck off the dining/kitchen rooms taking advantage of the beautiful northerly views. There is also a laundry with a large, walk-in pantry. One of the owners is an artist, so unique sculptural elements abound throughout the interiors and exteriors. A fireplace and thermostatically controlled underfloor heating ensure a comfortable internal temperature throughout the winter months.
There is also a triple garage with workshop and self-contained studio apartment above, a fully landscaped inground swimming pool, dam and around three acres of cleared land and landscaped gardens featuring extensive stonework. Access to the house is via a concrete, all-weather private driveway with security gates. A 10,000-litre tank under the deck provides filtered fresh water and there is also a large in ground water tank.
"We've loved the country lifestyle here but our work has taken us offshore," say the owners. "It's so peaceful and quiet yet we are conveniently positioned so well, it's so easy to go out to a restaurant and shopping in Berry, pop down to Kangaroo Valley for a coffee or head for the beach for the day."
Viewings of Randmont are by appointment. Contact Tim McGoldrick to arrange a suitable inspection time.
