About Barbara and Ian
We grew up in this area and it is where we decided to raise and educate our three children. Our family of three children, their partners and our grandchildren enjoy their visits and we love to cook for them. Our passions are our family, cooking, gardening, growing vegetables, travelling and exploring our beautiful region.
Barbara and Ian purchased this House in 2002
Why Barbara and Ian chose Portland
Our children were in their late teens when we fell in love with this 25 acre property and built our dream home on site with established gardens. When we purchased the property we took down a very old National Parks Wildlife Refuge Sign. We love where we live and the native wildlife that visit so we have decided to share this beautiful private space with an additional detached new 3 bedroom cottage at the rear of the property where guests can enjoy the mountain views and have their own private refuge as well.
What makes this House unique
There is plenty of room for children to ride their bicycles and there are several tracks to walk around the property. Guest are welcome to picnic in or around the gardens on the property or take advantage of their privacy in their own private sanctuary. Guests have their own private entertainment area with pergola and fire-pit and can enjoy the amazing stars on a clear night. The bird life is abundant and we provide wild birdseed to allow you to feed the birds if you wish to. The property is well located only 3 minutes drive to Portland, 6 minutes to Wallerawang, 22 minutes to Lithgow and 35 minutes to Bathurst.
