If the prospect of moving to the country and the quieter life of the Southern Highlands is appealing but you are reluctant to leave the beach or city, then consider buying a property in or around the quaint village of Robertson, where you can easily enjoy the best of both worlds. Famous for potatoes and as the home of ‘Babe’ buying a home in Robertson offers everything you could hope for if you are looking to escape to the country.
A quintessential Highlands village, Robertson is magically positioned less than 40 minutes from the fabulous Kiama coast and beaches. Rural properties around Robertson can enjoy spectacular panoramic views one day and be shrouded in a dense Highlands mist the next.
It is a lush area of the Southern Highlands with significant rainfall appealing to gardeners and farmers alike, with most rural properties boasting abundant water and feed. A couple of wonderful examples are ‘Windrush’, 'Karinya' or ‘Royalla’ which has been operating as a luxury Farm Stay.
Alternatively if you are looking for country without the commitment of large acreage, Robertson is a charming village with a very strong community spirit. It’s small and friendly but still large enough to boast strong local sporting clubs and the annual rural show held in February is a highlight on the local calendar.
You can find fully renovated properties, modern new builds as well as quintessential railway workers cottages throughout the township of Robertson. It is a tightly held market so properties for sale in Robertson don’t stay on the market for very long. The median price growth for houses has increased by over 13% in the last twelve months.
If you are considering buying in the Southern Highlands I certainly recommend taking the drive out to Robertson. It is an easy 30 minutes drive from Bowral town centre, so take the morning to explore and drop into the McKillop Property office located in the main street (Shop 3, 74-76 Hoddle Street) and have a chat to our team of Robertson property experts.
