About the neighborhood
Famous Blackheath Walks; the Braeside Track, the Cliff Walk, Bridal Veil Falls and Evans Lookout are all accessible from the back door. The property features an old Pine Forest, expansive grassland, deciduous Woodland and gorgeous established cold climate Mountain gardens. You may wish to sit in the cool, velvety shade of the Woodland listening to birdsong and watch Crimson Rosellas, King Parrots, Honeyeaters and Cockatoos feed off fruit and blossom in the Orchard, while native Wood Ducks cruise past waterlilies on the Dam. Wrap yourself up in the silky warm mountain mists of summer, drink in the brilliant black starry night skies, enjoy the sight, sound, smell, warmth and romance of an open log fire in winter. Within 2 minutes of beautiful Blackheath Golf Course. Local first class restaurants.
