Chance to own a real 'statement piece' in downtown Bowral is here

Ray White Bowral real estate agent Charlotte Hanrahan says 32 Aitken Road, Bowral, is perfect for those who want to move into a home that's a talking point.

“We’ve long had people moving to Bowral from Sydney, and now we’re getting lots moving here from Canberra and Wollongong as well,” Charlotte says.


“The area has always been a destination.”

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is located on a half-acre corner block in the Old Bowral area and features hallmarks of Tudor architectural style.

“The home itself has lots of character and is very unique,” Charlotte says.

“From the moment you arrive, you immediately see character features such as the front door with all its ironwork.

“The inside of the home is quirky, but grand.”


Charming features include the steeply pitched gable roof, half-timber cladding on the outside of the home, a chandelier, high ceilings and wooden accents inside.

A huge open fireplace in the living room is the ultimate in warmth and serenity.

There's history down to the foundations of this home; built by renowned master builder Alf Stephens.


“He did quite a bit in the area in the 1930s, many in the Tudor style,” Charlotte says.

In a beautiful blend of the old and the new, the home features modern amenities, including Nobo electric wall heaters and gas outlets, a 12-dozen bottle cellar and a reverse cycle air-conditioner in the sunroom. The kitchen features a quartz benchtop and quality appliances. The formal dining room is the perfect space for entertaining.


A loft, accessible from inside the home, features its own kitchenette, bathroom, laundry facilities and bedroom.

“The loft would make a really gorgeous Airbnb,” Charlotte says.

The home's original garage has been converted into a home office space, but Charlotte says it could be transformed into a bedroom or a further space for the loft.


Outside, the gardens feature fruit trees and a vegetable garden, and are perfect for those with a green thumb.

“Put simply, the gardens are gorgeous,” Charlotte says.

“You can sit in the north-facing sunroom, which is also a casual living and dining room, and take in the beautiful sun while looking out at the greenery.”


Bowral is located two hours north of Canberra and around 40 minutes from the NSW south coast.

“This property is a great family home for many reasons; it's conveniently located close to all the amenities that Bowral has to offer,” Charlotte says.

“The area is full of great antique shops and cafes and great schools – with the added benefit of being a really beautiful part of the world.”


According to Charlotte, a desire to live closer to nature is drawing people away from the big cities.

“I think that’s why the Southern Highlands has always been - and will continue to be - a really desired place," she says.

“People have always come to stay at their weekend homes, but more and more people are moving down full-time now.”

32 Aitken Road, Bowral, has a price guide of $3,750,000 - $3,900,000.
