Cherry Glen Cottage is a ‘half house’ in a rustic 100 year old cottage with your own private entrance & huge wraparound verandah overlooking an acre of land. It is part of a larger home, but has it's own entrance hall, beautiful sitting room with ethanol fireplace (& small fridge, microwave, nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster & eating area), stunning country french inspired bedroom & a quaint bathroom. Cherry Glen is perfect for couples and business travellers.
Cherry Glen Cottage is a rustic ‘half house’ in a 100 year old cottage. Set on an acre, the property is rich in character and though you occupy half of our home, it's doubtful you'll see or hear us after we give you the penny tour. With your own private entrance & huge wrap around verandah you’ll think you’ve come ‘home’. There’s the huge verandah, a charming entrance hall, the excellently equipped large and lovely sitting room (with ethanol fireplace, a small fridge, microwave, nespresso coffee machine, kettle, toaster & eating area). Follow the yellow brick road (or at least the yellow cypress floorboards) and find yourself in the sun-drenched, french country inspired bedroom, complete with crooked walls, a quaint slant and a wonderful energy. The sweet bathroom is small but beautiful, with a shower over the bath. Both the sitting room and the bedroom has access to the verandah via french doors.
You have your own entrance and off street parking and will be given a keyring with two keys on it ... one for the font door and one for the french
doors in the sitting room and bedroom. You can enjoy most of the property but ask that you respect our privacy and not enter the back yard.
Interaction with guests
There are two of us here at Cherry Glen, myself and my son, as well as a dog and a cat. I have my own graphic design studio set up in the green shed at the end of the driveway, so I'm never far away. That said, for the most part we'll generally stay out of your way unless you ask! We do come and go via the driveway, but your part of the home doesn’t face that direction, so it’s unlikely we'll cross paths.
In renovating the space for your pleasure, we have placed soundproofing material in the common walls and double glazing of all glass, so we hope our side of the Cherry Glen is as silent as you would want it to be. We will also endeavour to be as quiet as possible.
Other things to note
Cherry Glen is on a busy main road (making it super close to most popular Bowral/Mittagong events and venues), and though the space has soundproofing within the walls and double glazing of the windows and doors, if you were after country silence, that can not be guaranteed. The property also has pets... a truly gorgeous old and gentle German Shepherd, Possum (who is paralysed in the hind quarters so she won’t bother you at all), and a wild Cougar (by name and by nature) who stalks the property in search of unsuspecting ‘live ones’ to harass (but in reality is a small cream Lilac Burmese ... but don’t tell him).
- Cherry Glen is a ‘half house’ apartment which means we live in the other half. However, your space is very private and there are no shared spaces/rooms. The yard however, is shared with our animals (an beautiful and gentle old dog and a mischievous cat!)
