There’s no escaping the highland views at the chalet-style Burwood Lodge

‘Burwood Lodge’ at 231 Iona Park Road in Moss Vale isn’t so much a house as a five-star ski-resort-style chalet.

Timber-framed windows and sandstone fireplaces set the scene, while natural light floods in from every side and stunning highland countryside views are unmissable from every room.

The 56-hectare property deep in the Southern Highlands was on the market for just over a week with a price guide of $10.5 to 11 million.

Ray White Bowral says he didn't expect it to remain on the market for long, and that it didn't.

“People are amazed at just how much it has to offer,” a spokesperson said.

The residence itself comprises no fewer than seven bedrooms and six bathrooms. The rest of the property features 27 horse paddocks (with associated laneways, automated troughs and fences), seven large cattle paddocks (again, with laneways and yards), a 60 by 40-metre sand area equipped with irrigation and floodlights, four stables, a barn, two sheds and three water tanks.

Burwood Lodge is more than a pretty face. It can easily double as a fully-functioning farm.

When the property was last sold about a decade ago, it has since been extended and refurbished almost beyond recognition.

Raw timber beams provide the skeleton of the internal structure and double as rustic feature pieces throughout. The slow-combustion wood fire provides warmth in winter and another country-style feature piece all year round. The polished concrete floors are temperature controlled with hydronic underfloor heating, and there are timber floorboards throughout the living areas with carpet in the bedrooms.

The kitchen is fitted out with soft-close drawers and integrated appliances from SMEG and Miele, as well as a butler’s pantry and scullery, which includes a wine fridge, dishwasher, sink and wall-mounted wine storage. The eyecatcher remains the timber-topped island bench.

The master suite features an ensuite and custom-made wardrobes, not to mention a private timber deck. A dedicated guest suite also contains a walk-in robe and coffee and tea-making facilities.

Three other rooms complete the bedroom count, although one is designed to be a study.

Burwood Lodge scores a gymnasium with adjacent bathroom facilities and a geothermal heated indoor swimming pool, while another self-contained apartment features an additional bedroom, bathroom and open-plan living space.

And if you’re wondering where all the guests are meant to park, the property has seven dedicated parking spaces.

Ray White Bowral describes it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in the ever-popular Southern Highlands.
