A historically significant sandstone cottage dating back to 1827 has been listed for sale in Sutton Forest.

John Ross and Drew Lindsay of Drew Lindsay Real Estate in Bowral have given a price guide of $3.45 million.

Founded upon land grant from Governor Macquarie, it was once part of the James Atkinson's Oldbury estate, which was home to the first Australian born female artist, Louisa Atkinson.

The restored and renovated stone cottage boasts two substantial rooms, cathedral ceilings, open fireplace and a large veranda overlooking farmland.

The adjacent three bedroom home has been fitted with a spacious kitchen featuring European appliances, two bathrooms and a variety of spacious living rooms opening onto an outdoor entertaining area.

The property sits on prime cattle country, and offers extensive rural infrastructure including fencing, yards, crush, 6 spring-filled dams and riparian rights to Whytes Creek, and large sheds, as well as a historic dairy building.

Properties in Sutton Forest claim a median house price $1.2 million.
