Including Escape Southern Highlands

Southern Highlands Homes II

Perfect gift

Southern Highlands Homes II is a glossy coffee-table book featuring 18 exciting homes, all beautifully photographed and sure to inspire anyone who loves the Southern Highlands, architecture or interior design.

The homes illustrate a wide variety of Highlands architecture – from historic Georgian to classic country to passive solar. Every build and renovation story has a different angle, and all the owners have taken a very personal approach to interior design.

Four of the houses have never been previously published: opulent Linden Hall in Robertson, the historic Coach House in Berrima, classic country Oriel Park in Burrawang, and Robertson’s picture-perfect 1890s Lynwood Farm Cottage.

The book is illustrated with 230 of Tony Sheffield’s photographs, which show off the architecture, interior design and, most particularly, the country setting.

Southern Highlands Homes II was published in October 2018 and is Highlife’s first major hardback since Southern Highlands Homes, released in 2003.
