Bimbimbi House was built in the 1940s in the small fishing village of Bermagui on the far south coast, between Batemans Bay and Merimbula.
One of the areaís gracious original timber farmhouses (with an impressive stone fireplace), it is currently a working B & B, whose guests have included actor Billy Connolly, singer Jimmy Little and artist Ken Done. More regular visitors are lyrebirds, wallabies and king parrots.
As a home, it would happily accommodate two families. The main house of 530 square metres (57 squares) has five bedrooms and three bathrooms and its neighbouring cottage, two bedrooms and one bathroom with kitchen.
With river frontage, it is set on 2.7 hectares [6.5 acres], approximately 1 acre of established gardens, inspired by Victorian landscape designer Edna Walling.
Bimbimbi House faces north to Mt Dromedary and overlooks rolling pasture, spotted gums and the Bermagui River.
AGENTS NOTE: Having inspected the property I can safely say that it represents the true "Gentlemanís Residence".
All the charm has been retained with a rustic ambience of yesteryear and beautifully presented.
