House | Entire Home | House Sitting Requested
Available Dates:
From January 5, 2025 until February 1, 2026


You will walk into our home and fall in love with its warm atmosphere, breath-taking views, and modern open-plan style. Floor to ceiling, double-glazed windows capture light and sunshine throughout the year. This makes for a warm space with passive-solar qualities, solar-panel powered reverse-cycle aircon/heating, a slow-combustion stove, or gas central heating for those cold mountains nights! The entire upper level has an open-plan design, perfectly suited to entertaining, long dinners and lunches, writing, composing, or playing music. This home will delight any writer, researcher, artist or musician wanting to spend time here in creative bliss! Upstairs there is an expansive kitchen with island bench, stone bench-tops, large dining table that easily seats 10, and a full length deck taking in the stunning valley stretched out below. Perfect for barbecues, al fresco dinners or aperitif. There is also a WC with basin on this floor. Downstairs you will find three bedrooms: the master bedroom with king-size bed and ensuite with bath and shower; two double bedrooms and another bathroom with shower. There is a library/study and a separate laundry. There is ample storage for your clothes and linen/bedding in cupboards for your use. All bedrooms have views and direct access to a large covered patio. A feature of the garden is the private fire-pit area where you can enjoy a glass of wine as you stare over the bush, mountains, and gullies to the horizon and listen to the rich chorus of native birdsong - a special delight! Although only an hour and a half from Sydney via car or two hours via a direct train line, our home offers a real escape, where you can sink into your work, or just relax completely. There is a local village of character 1.7 kms away with all necessary shops and many good cafes to service your immediate needs, as well as supermarkets within 3kms. The small lake at Wentworth Falls is a 10 minute walk, perfect for walking, kayaking, picnicking, and swimming on hot days. You can also enjoy the bushwalks, rock-climbing, hiking, canyoning, abseiling, and multitude of outdoor tourism activities this region is famous for. You will have your own base for exploring the World Heritage wilderness on Darug and Gundungurra Country that we are so lucky to be surrounded by! (N.B. all photos below are from the property itself). We are looking for considerate tenants who will stay long term and look after our home and the environment.
