There aren’t many holiday homes that come complete with a dog when you make the booking, but this seriously beautiful estate in Woollahra in Sydney’s east is an exception. Luxe Houses' property, Woollahra Estate, boasts all the bells and whistles (hello, pool, tennis court, and five bedrooms) and then some—including a nine-year-old German Short Haired Pointer.
And this isn’t just any old house, it is arguably one of the most breathtaking homes in the NSW capital. While it’s located just a 10-minute drive from the CBD, you’d be forgiven for thinking you had escaped to the countryside. Built in the late 1850s, this estate has to be seen to be believed—and you can thank the Edwardian-style décor, overwhelmingly high ceilings, a sea of floral prints throughout, a gallery-worthy art collection, and Palladian gardens you’d only imagine to see in an episode of Downton Abbey for that.
Interior aficionados, green thumbs, and dog lovers, take the tour and then call the property home for a night—or 10.
