The Highlands boasts many grand estates, but Rona Lodge' is one of its least known and most impressive. Hidden behind old gardens and stately wrought iron gates, the sumptuous home sits at the top of a curved gravel drive, presiding over magnificent grounds. The home, gracious and generous in proportion has been built over the past few years and nothing has been overlooked. It features something to tempt everyone, such as a gas/solar-heated pool with adjoining kitchen and entertainment area, a spacious billiard room and sitting room, a tennis court, a gorgeous sandstone barbecue area, and, for the horse-lover, stables, paddocks and a dressage arena. The 15-acre grounds include an old established garden, a terraced parterre garden, a formal hedged rose garden, a walled orchard, a lake supplied by bore, a chook house and sweeping lawns. Elegant statues and fountains bring Versailles to mind. The home itself has all anyone could want: a large lounge room, formal dining room and family room (all with fireplaces), a veranda banqueting room, a huge conservatory, a glorious kitchen and butler's pantry, a wood- paneled library, sitting room and office upstairs, and five bedrooms, all with en suites. The vast main bedroom has its own sitting area, two walk-in robes, a spectacular bathroom and a private terrace. The carved timberwork and joinery throughout are meticulous. The home could work equally well with antique, traditional or modern furnishings. A large triple garage is attached, and it has a separate two-storey caretaker/ guest cottage. This is an extraordinary property, rarely found.
