Perfectly nestled in its own private valley and enclosed by unspoiled mountain ranges and blooming flora, Heronwood exudes a serene, calming vibe. Set on 16 acres, this lavish country retreat epitomises high-end elegance while offering a private, grounding setting to unwind and rejuvenate.

The opulence and richness of this abode – both in design and atmosphere, is immediately apparent, with a splendid circular driveway greeting you on arrival. Once inside, a grand foyer awaits with notable oil paintings and contemporary artwork adorning the walls.

Ideal for up to four couples or a close-knit group of friends, Heronwood boasts four oversized bedrooms, two with modern ensuites and separate verandas – perfect to savour the picturesque views from. The owners have spared no expense, with all bedrooms exceptionally styled with an eclectic mix of décor – sculptural pieces, unique terrariums, vibrant rugs and ornate mirrors. The comfort of guests has been a top priority, with plush doonas and pillows, fresh linen, electric blanks, plenty of storage and ducted heating available in each bedroom. The central bathroom features a dual head shower and freestanding bath that overlooks the dwelling’s magnificent perennial garden.

The enormous, open plan living and dining room offers exceptional entertainment and dining opportunities. The modern chef’s kitchen features a large stainless steel bench top with double-sink, 4-burner stove-top with grilling options, conventional gas oven, Asko dishwasher, Nespress coffee pod machine and a convenient stocked walk-in pantry. An eight-seater dining table with sculptural lighting allows for a formal dining experience, while an adjoining living room fitted with comfy lounges, a 70-inch television and a Cheminees Philippe fireplace presents a charming space to switch off and enjoy some down time. Moreover, separate summer and winter conservatories are positioned at each end of the living/dining room, ideal spaces to enjoy a glass of red, indulge in a book or play a board game.

For guests seeking a unique, calming experience, Heronwood has its own secret 2-acre rainforest – ideal for forest bathing, wombat finding adventures and bird watching. Guests also have the opportunity to pick, cook and eat from the property’s luscious herb garden, thriving orchard full of blueberry, plum, fig, apple, cherry and apricot trees, and a bountiful vegetable garden bursting with fresh produce like rhubarb, silverbeet, strawberries and beans. Close-by is an open-air firepit area offering comfortable chairs and breathtaking views, making it an ideal alfresco dining or star gazing setting. Two gigantic avocado trees border this outdoor space, which aptly overlooks the property’s dam filled with turtles, yabbies, and a host of waterbirds as well as the Black Dog Creek that is accessible via a small bridge crossing.

Finally and perhaps most noteworthy is the 10-metre infinity saltwater pool that adjoins a casual BBQ area, where guests can cook up a storm with the 4-burner BBQ, complete with a wok attachment. Sunbathing chairs, mini cocktail tables and a cantilever umbrella create the perfect summer setting; so flawless you will beg to stay just one more night! Book quickly, this dreamy residence has proven very popular and it’s not difficult to see why.

What a wonderful weekend it has been! The place was perfect for all of us, ages ranging from 2 to 72. our only regret is that we didn’t book a longer stay.

Fabulous Stay

Francesca F - 22nd December 2023

Heronwood is an incredible property. Extremely spacious and with beautiful grounds to explore. Plenty of space for a family getaway, where you don't feel like you are all on top of each other. The views and vibe of Heronwood make for the perfect city getaway. Michael (the owner) and the team at Berry Getaways are amazing and extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend Heronwood for a trip away and will definitely be returning.

Beautiful

Christmas at Heronwood!

Saskia C - 31st December 2022

We have had the most wonderful Christams week at Heronwood. We loved the pool, the crreek, the stunning garden, the wildlife ( we saw and echidna & wombat) and the views is breath taking. We can’t wait to come back again soon!

Sophisticated luxury escape

Jim O - 6th April 2022

Heronwood lives up to the descriptions and photos on its website in every way. Sophisticated luxury is evident throughout. All areas of the house are spacious and beautifully furnished, with the kitchen a chef’s delight. The gardens are diverse and very well maintained. Access is via simple country roads. During our stay, the preferred access road had been washed away during heavy rain. Our alternative access was via a circuitous road over Berry Mountain. Not much fun for cautious drivers.

Gavin, C - 11th December 2021

Amazing property

Josephine C - 8th November 2021

We had the most beautiful week at Heronwood, the property is everything as described and so much more. Huge spacious living areas and comfortable bedrooms. Total privacy and breathtaking views from every inch of the home. The gardens are incredible and have been clearly cared for by an extremely talented gardener. We spent a lot of time exploring the different garden areas and taking in the beautiful colours and visiting wildlife. We couldn’t have had a more joyful stay!
