Description

Perched on the side of a hill, Raven's View Cottage and Glasshouse have a view from Katoomba to the National Park cliff glimpses.

Raven's View is an early 1900's, totally private, light-filled weatherboard cottage located on a quiet street within a ten-minute walk to Katoomba Station and the shops. It ticks all the boxes: fireplace, solitude, spa jet-bath, Victorian-style glasshouse and views

The space

Raven's View is the perfect base for everything the Blue Mountains has to offer including nature walks, festivals, restaurants and cafes.

The house comprises of:

- Two bedrooms one king, one queen

- Bathroom with spa jet-bath

- A large fully-equipped kitchen with stove, oven, fridge and dishwasher.

- Living area with gas log fireplace and Netflix and Stan

- Dining room that seats six

- A hallway with doors at both ends so pets don't run out the front door

- Romantic gardens and Victorian-style glasshouse.

The large kitchen has a gas stove, electric oven, large fridge, dishwasher and all the basic supplies you need to cook a gourmet meal including five different types of oils. There is also breakfast cereals, Carmen's porridge, freshly ground plunger coffee, hot chocolate and a huge range of teas. If you dig into the baskets there are other food supplies in case you get snowed in or forgot that one special ingredient.

The bathroom includes a range of products including Triumph & Disaster shampoo and conditioner. In the cupboard, you will find all the little things you may have forgotten like shavers and cotton buds. There is an air-conditioner to heat up the bathroom if needed.

The living room has a huge comfy sofa try not to fall asleep, that wraps around the gas log fireplace and 55" TV. There are rugs to keep you warm. The TV has Netflix and Stan, and there is a pile of the latest lifestyle magazines to read.

The house is snug and warm in winter with a gas log fire, underfloor insulation, thick rugs, a powerful air conditioner, electric blankets and bar oil heaters in the bedrooms.

Both bedrooms have their own unique style:

The King room has an antique map on one wall, with a gorgeous patinaed leather wingchair and antique wardrobe. It has a koala mattress, with electric blanket and sheep's wool overlay. The sheets are freshly delivered from a hotel linen company and are crisp when you slide in.

The Queen room is white and silver, with a Moroccan, boho feel. It has a non-functioning fireplace as the centrepiece of the room. The drawers have Indian hand-painted ceramic knobs you will find a pile of novels in the corner of the room to enjoy as the light filters through maple trees in the front yard.

The front garden is full of various flowering plants and herbs including lemon verbena, lemon balm, parsley, chives, rosemary, oregano and thyme. You are welcome to grab a pair of scissors and wander through the garden snipping what you need for dinner.

The tiered back garden that looks over the National Park. When I bought the house in September 2017, it was overgrown, but it has been landscaped to be an outdoor living area. I have recently put in a Victorian glasshouse Built in New Zealand and BBQ area for outdoor dining. Because of this, I ask children do not play with a ball outside, or run around near the glasshouse as the guest will have to pay for damages if a window pane gets broken.

Interaction with guests

We leave you alone to enjoy the peace and quiet. If there is anything you need, I am always happy to answer any questions.

Other things to note

There is ample street parking with a short walk to the front door. You can access the property with a code, which will be supplied with the booking confirmation.
