Aptly named in homage to the luscious native flora that surrounds it, Waratah Park is where country charm meets modern elegance in the charming town of Berry.

Sitting on 4807 sqm at 65B Kangaroo Valley Road – a short distance from the heart of town – the three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence, built by a respected local builder in 2022, was recognised as a finalist in the prestigious Master Builders Awards in 2022.

Selling agent Nicholas Lyell of McGoldrick Estate Agents says you only need inspect the residence to understand why.

“Our client has created something very beautiful here – a home that epitomises excellence in design and construction,” he says.

“There are a lot of country-style homes, but the contemporary flare of Waratah Park makes it stand apart from pretty much anything else on the market.”

This contemporary home was a finalist in the prestigious Master Builders Awards in 2022.

Abundant birdlife flocks to the north-facing property, with natural light pouring in through the double-glazed glass used generously throughout.

Stacker doors open to covered native Australian ironbark decks both front and back, with the living, dining, and kitchen in between. This creates a free-flowing indoor-outdoor experience that’s perfect for entertaining close friends and family or simply enjoying the tranquillity and birdsong with a quiet cuppa.

“The owners’ inspiration for the design and layout was to create a holiday home you lived in all the time,” Nicholas says.

“Down to the littlest detail – like the tapware and piano key-style tiling – the craftsmanship is exquisite, the aesthetic is tasteful and timeless, and the layout is perfectly appointed.”

Natural beauty and light pour in through the double-glazed glass used generously throughout.

The kitchen, with its stone benchtops, European appliances, and a walk-in pantry, is a chef’s delight. It forms part of the heart of the home, along with the open-plan living and dining area. Here, you’ll find a slow-combustion wood fire and windows framing picturesque northerly vistas.

“It all comes together to invite warmth and natural light into the heart of the home,” Nicholas says.

“And it’s built for year-round enjoyment, whether you want to sip a red wine in front of the fire with a good book in the cooler months or share a cheese platter in the summer sunshine.”

This home is built for ultra-liveability. Zoned ducted air conditioning and natural cross ventilation ensure comfort year-round while the double-glazed glass used throughout locks in energy efficiency.

The main bedroom comes complete with a walk-in robe and high-quality ensuite, creating a luxurious retreat within your own home. Bedrooms two and three offer built-in wardrobes.

The quality extends beyond the primary residence, with internal access to a double garage and workshop as well as one of the home’s many drawcards – a separate studio. Nestled among the verdant gardens with its own ensuite and kitchenette, it’s the ideal home office, guest house or teenager’s retreat.

The home boasts ultimate privacy, but is located close to all the convenience and charms of Berry’s town centre.

Outside, meandering pathways wind through the native trees and, from a slightly elevated position, take in breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain range.

On one side is the stylish firepit, where evenings can be spent under the starlit sky and on another, a sprawling lawn where the kids can kick a ball.

“With its meticulous attention to detail, quality finishes, and prime location, this is a rare opportunity to embrace a harmonious blend of modern luxury and natural splendour,” Nicholas says.

“Waratah Park is something special, and it’s ready for new owners to come and enjoy.”
