Wolgan Valley estate Barton attracts unprecedented 500 inquiries
A little-known escarpment estate just down the road from Australia’s most exclusive 6-star resort is attracting huge interest.
A little-known escarpment estate just down the road from Australia’s most exclusive and probably most expensive 6-star resort is attracting incredible interest from potential buyers.
The stunning architecturally designed eco-retreat – named Barton – which sits on a 52ha (133 acre) estate in Wolgan Valley, NSW’s Central Highlands, has attracted an unprecedented 500 inquiries after being listed by LJ Hooker Lithgow.
It’s just down the road from the famous six-star Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, which offers rooms for around $3,100 a night.
Barton features a stylish two bedroom cabin with magnificent escarpment views at 2007 Wolgan Road, Wolgan Valley, NSW.
LJ Hooker Lithgow agent Jamie Giokaris said the very strong interest reflected the unique nature of the property and its location.

“The Wolgan Valley is a tightly held area with a reputation for exclusivity given that the six-star Emirates resort is also located there,” he said.
“The answer is something I haven’t seen in 29 years of working in the industry. It’s all Sydney-based interest – there’s a yearning for people to get out of the city and find some peace and quiet.
“There is also the recognition that the Wolgan Valley is a scenic and very special destination.”
The property adjoins the Gardens of Stones National Park and is a mixture of pasture and natural bush with two dams.
“This stylish and comfortable weekend offers fantastic natural light and ever-changing views from inside and out to the cliffs and mountain escarpments,” the listing reads.
“Some of the people who attended our last open house stayed at the Emirates resort, but what we’re selling is not a six-star resort – it’s back to nature and that’s a big part of the attraction although there is potential to add another residence,” Mr. Giokaris said.
“The owners have deliberately opted for a fairly simple layout – there is a landline telephone, the house is deliberately not connected to the internet and is set up with ‘get-off-the-grid’ solar power.
“There are no close neighbors – you can’t see another soul of the residence – all you can see are the cliffs, the birds in the trees plus the kangaroos, wallabies and wombats .”
The property is located approximately two hours and 45 minutes west of Sydney. Wolgan Valley also offers an abundance of outdoor adventures including bushwalking, rock climbing and exploring the Glow Worm Tunnel and Newnes Industrial Ruins.
It is scheduled to go up for auction at LJ Hooker Lithgow Halls on Saturday, April 9 at 11:00 a.m.
