‘Yellow Billy’ – An Extraordinary Australiana Homestead in the Beautiful Wollombi Valley

Nestled high on a hill this gorgeous timber constructed home with sweeping wrap around verandahs has stunning views to the valleys below and distant mountain ranges beyond. The 9.59-hectare (23 acre) property offers total privacy, beautiful bushland surrounds with pockets of grassy plateaus and stunning rock features. The property has been inspired by the natural surrounds with feature rock retaining walls, native gardens and many seating areas to appreciate the serenity.


The home comprises open plan living spaces, a fully equipped country style kitchen with dishwasher, walk-in pantry and gas stove, quality country bathroom, private main bedroom with ensuite & walk-in robe, second & third bedroom and internal laundry. Full of character throughout the features of the home are endless. High cathedral style ceilings and a stunning fireplace is a central feature of the open plan living area. Undercover sweeping verandahs wrap around the home to take full advantage of the views and provide a great outdoor entertaining area. A large sandstone paved area by the house is the perfect location for a fire pit, afternoon drinks and watching the sun set.


A well-constructed timber and corrugated iron barn shed is located by the house with a double length carport attached. The property has mains power and water won’t be a problem with a new 80,000L colorbond water tank. Meandering trails make their way through the property with many intriguing locations to discover including the highest point of the property which is a huge rock platform – another great spot to take in the views.


A unique and interesting feature of the property is a huge cave located on the valley floor entering the property. This cave is why the property is known as ‘Yellow Billy’ who was a bush ranger in the 1860’s well known for hiding out in this cave after escaping Wollombi Gaol.


Just a short drive to the nearby Historic Wollombi Village, the property has easy access to Sydney and would make the ideal weekender retreat or permanent lifestyle country property…
