Japanese garden oasis for sale in the heart of Horsley Park

One of Australia’s most unique properties, featuring its own Japanese-style gardens, with pontoons and bridges has hit the market in Sydney.

Aside from the incredible grounds the owner has spent 20-plus years cultivating into an oasis, the property is even more special given it is located in Horsley Park in Sydney, just minutes from the commercial centre of Cabramatta.

Inside the garden oasis at 62 – 70 Cobham St, you are surrounded on two sides by water and beautiful trees. 

There are also amazing landscaped features including its very own island, with a moon bridge looking down into the water, which boasts floating lilies and lotuses as well as koi fish.

The property also includes three timber pergolas that provide a viewing point on top of the water to watch the sunset. 

The house has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge and a kitchen overlooking the lake and all the beautiful features.

Selling agent, Antonio Nguyen, from LJ Hooker Cabramatta, said the owner of the property was a natural artist and that’s why he wanted to create something so unique and beautiful.

“The owner has spent over $200,000 building the pond alone, plus all the trees and fish are also very valuable,” Mr Nguyen said.

He said that the property itself was well-known in the area and it had attracted a lot of attention.

“There’s a been a lot of enquiry and last weekend we had many people coming through to look,” he said.

Mr Nguyen said he’s been marketing the property to both locals and overseas buyers, especially those in Asia and has created videos to highlight just how special the property is.

However, it was a difficult property to put a price tag on.

He said the property was being sold as a residential home, because it had never operated as a business, but there was scope to do a lot of different things with the grounds.

“I think the property is very suited to building a temple and if someone wanted to do that it would be very popular with many of the Asian people in the area,” he said.

The property will go to auction on Saturday April 6 at 12.30pm.
