A Bespoke Luxury Stay
Just an hour drive from the busyness of Sydney’s CBD can you find the stunning and absolutely unique Sweven Estate. The entire 141-acre estate is rented exclusively to guests and offers unadulterated comfort and privacy.
Built in 2012 by the renowned Timothy Moon Architects, the house was expertly carved into the existing rockface right on the banks of the Hawksbury river. Guests are greeted by a long winding driveway framed by trees interrupted only by a lotus filled lake.
The tree-house design of the property automatically catches your attention as you ascend the steep driveway, which opens beautifully to a quaint entertaining area equipped with a magnificent fireplace. The large front garden gives you a chance to admire the numerous veranda’s and the linked timber and stone pavilions of the property. The front entrance is surrounded by an Asian style moat and water feature, setting a mood of tranquillity which is uninterrupted throughout your entire stay.
The living-pavilion rooms are made for entertaining with high cathedral-like ceilings and warm timber beams. The furniture is of warm tanis and invites guests to lounge and experience the comforts of the property. The open plan kitchen and dining room lead into an outdoor BBQ area which follows on to show the gorgeous infinity pool and sun lounge areas. The entire residence has an uninterrupted, panoramic view of the stunning countryside scenery.
Sleeping up to thirteen, the master bedroom boasts lavish furnishings and a private balcony equipped with an outdoor shower and total privacy from the rest of the house. The stunning feature bath is a favourite of our guests. The three in house bedrooms are individually furnished and with plush queen size beds and distinctive décor. Guests can also avail of our private guesthouse which has its own kitchen, living area and sleeping quarters. The guesthouse also offers a spectacular secluded veranda with endless views of the stunning countryside.
In addition, guests are given the opportunity to enjoy a number of onsite activities which make their stay with us even more special. We offer guests use of our state-of-the-art quad bikes to explore the stunning, pristinely kept estate. Guests can also avail of our outdoor cinema or enjoy a picnic at our tree arbour or private beach. We also can arrange access to jet-skis and other water sports to be enjoyed on the property as well as access to various local experiences, or a round of golf at the neighbouring Riverside Oaks. For those more focused on relaxation, you can enjoy the endless pleasures of the 141-acre property, strolling throughout the estate and admiring the gardens, or stop and say hello to our sheep or alpacas.
