The commute from Sydney to the Southern Highlands must have ­become too much for chef Brigid Kennedy and her farmer husband Kevin Nott.

The pair, who have used their Rozelle home as their Sydney base for eight years, have listed it for sale with ­expectations of $2.1 million.

The couple own The Loch in Berrima, a working farm that offers boutique accommodation and a restaurant for Sunday dining.

Kennedy is the chef and Nott is a farmer and landscaper who manages Loch Farm Stall, the farm gardens for their paddock-to-plate restaurant, The Tasting Room.

Their Roser St home is a two storey property; the top level is a three-bedroom, three-bathroom place in which they live when they are in Sydney.

The lower level a separate self-contained one-bedroom apartment with a study that is currently leased for $500 a week, an option agent Lynsey Kemp of Belle Property Balmain hopes will set the home apart.

“(Brigid and Kevin) have been spending more and more time in Berrima so it’s a situation where they don’t need their Sydney base any more,” Kennedy said.

“It’s a beautiful double-fronted home in a central location but a big feature of it is that it offers the flexibility to keep the lower level leased to provide an income, or convert it into a big family home.”

Kennedy adds this flexible option which allowed them to lease the lower level of their home has been a financial boon over the years.

“Having a stylish self-contained apartment is a financial-drought proofer with either a permanent tenant or a more lucrative Airbnb arrangement,” Kennedy said.

“It’s very appealing, especially so close to town.” An August 29 auction is planned.
