Property Of The Week: ‘Bathampton’, Bowral, NSW
The Hamptons meets the Southern Highlands in this luxurious pile.
Few properties epitomise classic Hamptons style and grandeur as elegantly as this superb Bowral estate.
Dubbed ‘Bathampton’, the 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 2-car garage home is located on a 5.6-acre plot that combines the traditional codes of luxury with bespoke contemporary finishes.
These codes are displayed through the combination of custom window furnishings, imported wallpaper and light fixtures, herringbone parquetry, bamboo wool carpets and marble mosaic tiles underfoot. Wainscoting, wallpaper, deep-stacked cornices and skirtings further add to the home’s character.
The end result is a magnificent pile that delivers an overwhelming sense of refinement while retaining the essence of family living.
Entering through the stately entrance hall, a sweeping staircase ascends into a double storey landing. The lower-level plays host to an elegant home office and study and a sitting room adjacent.
Elsewhere the lower floor sees the gourmet kitchen and adjoining butler’s pantry — the former fitted with Carrara marble benchtops, Nicolazzi tapware, Ilve gas cooker and Smeg combi oven.
The kitchen is pointed towards a large dining space, sunroom and, via French doors, the alfresco entertaining space set on a silver granite paved area that overlooking the manicured English style gardens and indulgent 12×8-metre in-ground saltwater pool.
The master bedroom, also found here, sees a deluxe walk-in robe and lavish ensuite with a clawfoot bath, separate shower and toilet plus a generous ‘his’ and ‘hers’ stone-topped vanities, heated floors and towel rails.
Each bathroom and the mudroom boast underfloor heating, a guest powder room, adorned with a porcelain pedestal basin and mosaic marble tiles.
On the second floor comes a further four bedrooms, a craft room or nursery and a gallery space.
Outside, the aforementioned English style gardens are supported by a substantial shedding, a bore and irrigation system, a dam and invisible dog fencing alongside arguably the largest display of hydrangeas in the highlands.
