Description

A stunning and unique property, ‘Katheaghan’ is comprised of a gorgeous cedar cottage, gardens and a small hobby farm set within 25 acres of intact eucalypt woodland forests and wildlife sanctuary. Located in Yarramundi it lies in the foothills of the Blue Mountains less than one hour north west of Sydney.

For sale for the first time in 20 years, this property has been conserved and protected by the owners, keeping it rich in plant and animal biodiversity rarely found under private ownership in the region.

The cottage, stables and outbuildings are surrounded by mature gardens comprised of flowering natives and exotics creating their own habitat and microclimate of gentle and stunning beauty abundant with birds and animals feeding, calling and nesting.

The property then rises gently with the mountain to meet the Blue Mountains National Park. Walking trails through native grasslands, eucalypt forests and woodlands take you over two creeks via sandstone bridges to the peak of the property that overlooks sandstone ledges and caves down to a rainforest gully below and out to the Sydney Basin to the East.

The story-book cottage includes: Two larger-than-average sized bedrooms and a study; main bedroom has walk-in robe; loft bedroom has built-in robes; Baltic pine country kitchen; large laundry; large cedar-lined bathroom; second toilet and hand basin upstairs; open plan lounge & dining area with slow combustion fire and Brushbox timber floors; exposed beam cathedral ceilings; cedar French doors and windows fully gauzed; verandas front and back; zoned ducted air conditioning; 150 litre gravity feed water-tank; excellent NBN speed.

Outbuildings and outdoor features include: 4-car garage/workshop with 3-phase power; two double carports; two garden sheds; greenhouse/nursery; double stables; double aviaries/kennels with front ante-room, lockable storage and fully fenced yard attached; large dam, pump house and irrigation to gardens and lawns; water tanks harvesting 84,000 litres rain water; outdoor 4-seater spa, hut and pergola; three fully fenced paddocks; Envirocycle waste water treatment system reusing grey & black household water for gardens and lawns; three creeks with waterfalls that run strongly with good rain and pose no flood risk.

The land

The property’s diverse terrain, age and species of trees, shrubs and ground covers provide food, nesting sites and much needed protection for many species of plants and animals (some of which are already vulnerable or endangered) including gliders, wallabies, possums, kangaroos, river turtles, bats, frogs, native bees, reptiles and over one hundred species of birds including honeyeaters, fairy wrens, eastern yellow robins, rufous whistlers, quails, whipbirds, wattle birds, owls, nightjars, cuckoos, pardalotes, parrots, cockatoos and kingfishers.

Along the creek lines are towering Angophoras, Grey Gums and Corymbias, some well over two hundred years old with nesting hollows used year after year. Other plant species include Iron Barks, Stringy Barks, Turpentines, Acacias, Grevilleas, Allocasuarinas, Persoonias (Geebungs), ground ferns, native orchids and numerous native grasses.

Nearby

The junction of the beautiful Grose & Hawkesbury-Nepean Rivers is a 5-kilometre drive where families and pets can swim leash-free and kayak or walk along the rivers rich in ancient and ongoing Dharug history and culture.

Cafes, restaurants, food and retail shopping are a 12-kilometre drive to Richmond, 17 kilometres to Springwood and 25 kilometres to Penrith. For the traveller, the Nancy Bird Walton International Airport due to open at Badgerys Creek in 2026 is an easy 43 kilometres.
