Luxurious country charm amid a sub-tropical setting defines ‘Milton Surf and Stables’, an all-encompassing rural retreat on the New South Wales south coast.
Originally a set of horse stables built in the 1920s, the property has been lovingly and stylishly converted into a sublime four-bedroom, two-bathroom holiday sanctuary by its owners fashion and interiors designer Collette Dinnigan and her hotelier husband Bradley Cocks.
Positioned on 25 acres of private manicured land, coded entry to the property is via a long tree-lined driveway that weaves its way past five fully fenced and paled paddocks before coming to rest in front of the impressive master homestead.
Consisting of a charming main residence surrounded by a sunny north-facing veranda with covered outdoor bathroom, the retreat comes complete with a loft-style master bedroom suite, exquisite entertainment barn with pizza oven, an alfresco dining area with outdoor bar and fire pit and several auxiliary buildings.
Inside the character-filled home, which is bordered by a sub-tropic rainforest, many of Dinnigan’s signature adroit touches are in evidence via the hardwood timber flooring, heightened ceilings with exposed beams, galvanised iron cladding and abundance of white paint.
The influence Dinnigan derived from her extensive travels can be found everywhere from a shell chandelier sourced from Bali to the Parisian lace curtains and antique European claw-foot bath.
In addition the home’s unique location has also prompted its current owners to ensure the home boasts impressive eco-credentials with a new 45,000 litre rainwater tank designed to minimise the property’s reliance on town water supply and only organic product used to fertilise its grounds. A stream also runs through the western side of the property where it is home to an extensive array of flora and fauna.
