Carved into a sandstone cliff just two hours’ drive from Sydney, this amazing house defies gravity as it hangs above a deep gorge of the Wingecarribee River.
It is the last house designed by famous architect Harry Seidler – and it is a house built to impress. You will be thunderstruck.
Set in rural bushland the size of 113 football fields, alongside two-kilometres of picturesque river, the house is surrounded by wombats, kangaroos, platypus, koalas and birdlife.
With panoramic views over Mittagong, Bowral and Joadja, this contemporary masterpiece is the ultimate luxury accommodation for discerning travellers.
Designed like a sculpture, it has spacious open-plan living spaces with floor-to-ceiling glass walls and curved roofs that contrast with the sharply cornered, elevated viewing decks.
The four-bedroom house, which can easily sleep eight people, has an abundance of light and warmth. The master bedroom has a generous ensuite while the three remaining king-size bedrooms share a large bathroom. There are several comfortable lounge areas, two stone open fireplaces, a large dining area and a modern kitchen.
Outside, there are plenty of tranquil spaces for lounging around, an outdoor dining area with barbecue and a stunning swimming pool with its own courtyard. There is no wi-fi.
The Seidler House is an ideal place for an escape with local restaurants, cafes, wineries and antique shops close by. The charming villages of Berrima and Robertson, where the film Babe was made, are a short drive away.
