Award winning home, with the best panoramic views in the mountains Unbelievable
Perched on the cliffs edge and privately positioned, at the end of a laneway is this most unusual architect designed home. When built, "Omaroo Lodge"' won the house of the year award, by the Master Builders Association of NSW, for its creative design. Framed by close ancient rock faces, the villa offers unobstructed panoramic views of Megalong Valley, the distant horizon and beyond.
This beautiful lodge resides on over one acre, surrounded by the Blue Mountains World Heritage Nature Reserve. It is an eco-built and environmentally-conscious home, incorporating thermal mudbrick walls, double glazed windows and indigenous timbers.
Within five levels of spacious living, a sense of wonderment leads one through arched mudbrick passageways, with every room offering vaulting timber ceilings and hand crafted furnishings. Designed with many windows and skylights, much natural light is brought into the living spaces. The semi-circular living room has floor to ceiling windows, which fully captures the view and leads out, to a large travetine entertainment deck within lush garden surrounds and escarpment views, one can relax in the warmth of an eight person outdoor spa. Close by, is a beautiful rock dam and water fountain, which attracts many birds and animal life to its shores.
There are five bedrooms, one accessed by a spiral staircase, with its own balcony, perched high to capture magnificent views of the garden and cliff faces. The three bathrooms include two, as ensuites and the main has a large, two person spa. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen provides designer appliances, with a large gas cooktop and electric oven. An adobe woodfire oven is perfect for cooking pizzas and baked dinners.
The lodge has been designed to capture the northern sun, to offer warmth in the cold winter months. This is embellished by a slow combustion wood heater in the lounge room and air-conditioning is available in the living area.
Nature paths, leading directly off the property, take one along clifftop walks and into the valley, via the Six Foot Track. Mountaintop Villa is only minutes from the charming Katoomba and Leura villages, which offer lovely boutiques, cafes, art galleries, antique shops and excellent dining.
A non-smoking house. Accommodates up to 12 people.
