A Private Architectural Retreat - 60 Pristine Bushland Acres

1 Beds 1 Baths 2 Cars 24.29 ha

A truly unique opportunity exists to own a piece of architectural history in the Macdonald Valley. Halifax is private and serene, a true escape from city life, yet so close to Sydney.

Set on approximately 60 pristine bushland acres, Halifax was designed to be at one with its spectacular surroundings. Created by Halifax Hayes for a Sydney arts patron in 1978, the property embraces natural materials, exposed stone, timber and full height glazing that exploit the sunlight and valley views. Hewn from rock on the site and set high on an outcrop, the home has a sense of floating amongst the giant gumtrees.

Respecting the original design, the home has been preserved, and significant upgrades have been undertaken by the current owners. The large master bedroom over looks the spacious open plan lounge dining that is warmed by a magnificent central stone log fireplace. The large sun-drenched verandah wraps three sides of the home and takes in the beautiful views across the valley.

There is an additional dwelling on site affectionately known as The Woodshed. A simple rustic structure, full of character and an important part of the Halifax history. With a little TLC The Woodshed would be ideal as an artist or yoga studio.

The property is located only moments from the historic St Albans Village, a short drive to Wisemans Ferry and only 90 minutes to Sydney's CBD via the Hills District.
