Burradoo House, the recently upgraded 1920s residence in the Southern Highlands, has been sold by tourism entrepreneur Rose Deo, whose $5.38 million purchase in 2017 ranked as the highest price paid in Burradoo.

The listing has been a $2000 a night holiday letting on Matt Fleming’s Contemporary Hotels Group website.

The buyers of the English-style country house, from Sydney’s north shore, recently visited as a family for the day. Nestled on one hectare of parkland gardens originally designed by Claude and Isobel Crowe, Burradoo House has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a library and a two-­storey glass conservatory.

Its onsite caretaker had organised fresh flowers throughout the house, lit candles, ensured the underfloor heating was on and that the fire­places were laid so they were ready to be lit on the family’s 7.30am ­arrival.

They were “absolutely bewitched” by the experience and it sealed the deal, Knight Frank agent Deborah Cullen said. She added that the coronavirus lockdown had led many of her clients to re-evaluate how they spend their family holidays as they now realise that international travel will not be possible for the foreseeable future.

No word on whether Deo secured her desired fresh record price, but the nearby heritage-listed Anglewood House has hit the market with $8.25 million hopes.

Owned by the businessman Val­dis Berzins since 1998, the 13-bedroom, nine-bathroom Queen Anne arts and craft residence was constructed in 1890 for Arthur Smith, secretary of public works in the Sir Henry Parkes government.
