Consider Canyonleigh

There are a few areas in the Southern Highlands that still fall a little under the radar and for anyone looking for a secret Southern Highlands rural hideaway I recommend considering property for sale in Canyonleigh.

Canyonleigh is only just being discovered as a rural community that offers a unique mix of Southern Highlands climate and character together with a landscape that is more traditional Aussie bush than you may expect in the Highlands.

It is perched on the South-Western edge of The Highlands with many properties in the area offering endless views across rolling farmland to the Great Dividing Range.

The area has traditionally been home to large farming acreages but over recent years subdivisions of 100 acre blocks have opened the area up and there are now emerging opportunities to buy in Canyonleigh and build your own dream country life.

But opportunities also exist to buy property in Canyonleigh that already have a well-presented family home and quality farm infrastructure which means there is no need to wait to move in. Have a look at the video for Whispering Pines to get an idea of the amazing landscape and views of the area.

The lower public profile of the area means properties in Canyonleigh offer great value as they are generally priced below similar acreages across the Highlands. That should be great news for those looking to buy because Canyonleigh really does offer everything you could want from a rural property.

There is a General Store that is also an Australia Post outlet and the local community is very strong, holding regular functions at the Store or in the charming Community Hall. One of the highlights on the calendar is the Bitchies versus the Dirties annual cricket match with teams determined by surface of the public road at your front gate!

It is an easy drive into Berrima, Exeter and Moss Vale with children in the area falling into the Exeter Public School zone and serviced by the Exeter school bus. And the Canyonleigh Road turnoff really does mark the half-way point between Sydney and Canberra so access to either city takes only ninety minutes.

So if you are looking for a hidden Highlands gem consider Canyonleigh and give one of our team a call.
