Burradoo was established in the late 1880s as a hill-station for Sydney’s landed gentry and lies 130km from Sydney city centre. An affluent address just 5km to the township of Bowral, Burradoo is one of the most exclusive areas of the Southern Highlands. About two thirds of Burradoo homes are permanent residences for retired Sydneysiders, and the remainder weekend retreats and holiday homes for well-heeled city dwellers.
Burradoo is renowned for its significant country estates and grand Federation mansions, many of which are set amid sprawling grounds offering exceptional peace and privacy. The town itself is divided by Moss Vale Road, with the western side the prestige patch with property ranging from two to 12 hectares. These early homes were planted with extensive English-style gardens and feature elegant gravel driveways, long avenues of pines and horse paddocks. Burradoo’s best streets are considered to be the tree-lined avenues of Osborne, Holly, Burradoo, Riversdale and Werrington where homes fetch from $1m to $6m.
A horse-lover’s paradise, Burradoo has fantastic equestrian facilities and is home to the Burradoo Pony Club and Burradoo Polocrosse Club, the oldest Polocrosse Club in the world. Close proximity to Bowral’s retail hub and prestigious schools add to the appeal of this elite enclave.
