Autumn House & Garden Inspections

One of our most popular events with insight into some of the Southern Highland's most beautiful private houses and gardens. Our three properties have been selected variously for their differences, heritage roots, uniqueness of character or their luxe attractiveness.

At our 10:30am rendezvous, just outside the historic village of Exeter, we begin our day with a delicious home-made Morning Tea on the verandah of the beautifully upgraded 50 year-old house featuring a fine collection of antique European furniture, artwork and decorative arts. The garden has old growth but its charm is in the massed display of smaller trees and shrubs in their autumn colours.

Our second property is at 12:15pm a short drive towards the small village of Sutton Forest. This substantial estate has spectacular distant views in multiple directions, across undulating farmland. The 20 year-old house shows a regency style with elegant 18th-19th century furniture and artworks.

Lunch at your leisure … we recommend the variety of offerings in Moss Vale as our final house is right in town and opens from 2:30pm. It is a substantial Victorian townhouse with great provenance and now repurposed beautifully for a new productive life – an easy walk from our Moss Vale cafes.
