A beautiful family home with all modern conveniences in a quiet rural setting at the foothills of the Blue Mountains ensures your stay here will send you back to the hustle and bustle fully refreshed. Set in a rural location, it’s a perfect retreat just over an hour from Sydney's CBD. Only a 10 minute drive to Kurrajong Village with it's cafes, restaurants and boutique shopping. It's also an easy trip to the mountains with all it has to offer, including destinations such as Kurrajong Heights, Bilpin, Mount Tomah and Mount Wilson all within a short drive.
The cottage, although extremely spacious inside, is perfect for one or two couples looking for a secluded, yet close to civilisation, place to totally unwind. However, although children are welcome, it is not suitable for children 1-6 years old.
You can enjoy the lovely gardens with mature European and native trees and their colourful leaves; occasionally spot the wildlife such as kangaroos and wallabies and an abundance of beautiful birds.
There is a very private pool for cooling off in the summer.
A fabulous cook's kitchen with high quality appliances including Jura coffee machine, dishwasher, and gas cook top - all opening to a fabulous wisteria covered outdoor entertaining area with Ziegler gas BBQ.
Sit back and relax in comfort on electric leather recliners and watch the curved screen, OLED TV which includes Foxtel, Netflix and an extensive DVD library. There's also an eclectic library of books to enjoy during your stay. We kindly ask you leave them behind for others to enjoy, of course.
Ducted and split systems, reverse cycle air-conditioning and a slow combustion fire for cozy winter nights will ensure year round comfort.
