Eagles Rest is the perfect escape for a weekend. Just 90 minutes south of Sydney is the beautiful township of Berry. known for its arts, craft and food - Berry is nestled just inland from the magnificent Seven Mile Beach and the mountains to the west. It is upon Woodhill Mountain - some 350m above sea level - that you will find Eagles Rest. Less than 10 minutes up the mountain road and you might as well be a million miles away from everything. As you enter the property through the gates the house is still a small journey yet (well not that far, a few hundred metres), allowing for the last few stresses of modern living to fall away. The first glimpse of Eagles Rest impresses you with size. It is a large home that is almost 75m from end to end.

Just 90 minutes south of Sydney is the beautiful township of Berry. known for its arts, craft and food - Berry is nestled just inland from the magnificent Seven Mile Beach and the mountains to the west. It is upon Woodhill Mountain - some 350m above sea level - that you will find Eagles Rest. Less than 10 minutes up the mountain road and you might as well be a million miles away from everything. As you enter the property through the gates the house is still a small journey yet (well not that far, a few hundred metres), allowing for the last few stresses of modern living to fall away. The first glimpse of Eagles Rest impresses you with size. It is a large home that is almost 75m from end to end. Five bedrooms (three with en suites) all with fantastic Queen (one King) beds disappear into a house that is meant for people to gather, celebrate, rest and relax. There are two indoor eating areas - one that seats 8 in formality, the other that seats an incredible 14 with ease (and that's before the 8 seater outside on the deck). Accompanying the range of eating areas are two lounge/TV rooms (both with Foxtel - Satellite service). The smaller lounge room adjoins the large indoor fireplace and can happily seat 2 in the love chair through to 8 if company is preferred. This area is also ideal for the kids - with DVD player & Sony Play Station on call to amuse. The larger lounge is in The Great Room - at the eastern most part of Eagles Rest. This is where everyone can gather in their own space - with easily enough space for 20 people. The room is surrounded by glass (folding doors that open fully on a warm day), with views through 180 degrees from Gerrora to Nowra - and all the magnificence in between. Equipped with full kitchen, walk in pantry big enough to house everything you could possibly want, Bose entertainment system and super size flat screen TV - its the place to be from dawn (which erupts through the windows to dazzle every morning) to the stillness on a dark winters night. A deck runs run the entire house, and connects you to the double garage at the western end of the property. The ground level has an 2m pool table to pass a few hours, and upstairs in the loft are beds to sleep a further 10 people on those big family weekends (loft available for an extra $100 a night). Adjoining the garage is enough parking for up to 6 cars, and as you leave that area and head into the trees further west there is a small deck area ideal for yoga, meditation of just a moment of tranquility.More

About the neighbourhood
Berry is the first truly rural town south of Sydney, a mere two hour drive from the CBD. The town is renowned for its bucolic pastoral setting, but now it’s the shopping and the cafes which set it apart. As soon as you cross the bridge and glimpse the gorgeous rotunda set amongst trees in beautiful Apex Park you know this is a special place. Berry is ‘the town of trees’ but could equally be known as ‘the town for all seasons’. In autumn the trees turn gold and amber in a magnificent display, in winter the cool crisp air lures you to a welcoming fire, in spring the gardens are a garden-lover’s dream and in summer you are just ten minutes from spectacular Seven Mile Beach and the national park. The town is steeped in history and the surrounding countryside is a treasure for bushwalkers and explorers alike.
