A sweet countryside escape in Braidwood

Lifestyle changers considering an escape to the country may find exactly what they are looking for in Braidwood.

Just minutes into the heritage-listed town sits the historic "Shadowlands" on just over two hectares of magnificently landscaped grounds.

The faithfully extended cottage dates to c1875 when it was built by the pioneering McInnes family. It is regarded as one of Braidwood's special period homes, enhanced by a breathtaking rural backdrop.


The cottage has period details throughout and offers a grand lounge and dining room with fireplace, a country-style kitchen in the original cook house, and a study. The generous extension has four bedrooms and a north-facing sunroom/studio opening onto a shaded porch, perfect for entertaining.

The garden is a beautifully planned masterpiece with years of love poured into it and has a seasonal creek, a licensed bore and an established orchard. The old cattle yards have been converted into a feature rose garden and pony paddock.

The gardens have been recognised in recent years by Australian Open Gardens and the popular Braidwood Open Gardens.

Other property features include a double garage, rear land access, garden tool and potting sheds plus a dry shed house, town water, a 25,000-litre water tank, septic tank, main phone line and excellent mobile reception. The school bus stops at the gate.
