"I wish I'd designed this house" is the comment from visiting architect Richard.

"It's like something out of Vogue" sighs Suzanne.

Welcome to the Straw Bale House! The passive solar design of this magnificent house and the half metre thick walls made of straw ensure warmth in winter and cool in summer. 80% recycled materials add beauty and character of a unique design. Timbers from an old jetty on the Parramatta River, the luggage rack from a 1927 Plymouth, 7 metre bush poles, rusted corrugated iron, doors and windows from the Queen Victoria Hospital are only some of the creative materials used in the construction of this house. Filled with handcrafted furniture and fittings, and rustic treasures collected from 4 years of active auction hunting you will find every corner brings a new surprise. The house is comprised of 2 wings


Leura is a 1 1/2 hour drive from the centre of Sydney.

A 10-minute walk will take you to the quaintest village in the mountains where you will enjoy the proliferation of cafes, galleries and shops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for large groups This house was indeed built with straw bales and on the weekend we had 32 degrees one day 13 the next and were comfy in all conditions, add the fireplace and no one got cold. the large kitchen is set up for catering for crowds and we seated 15 around the long wooden dining table. Bedrooms were simple we had 5 king beds and 5 singles with kings able to be split. They were a bit firm for most of us but that would be only complaint. Nice touches such as quality shower products, DVDs, Cds, 2 bottles of champagne and jam were appreciated. 3 bathrooms was sufficient with the bathroom placed in-between the bedrooms to share. Its about 1km from train station and Leura mall which was a blessing as it was crowded on Saturday. Nearby waterfall walks at Gordon falls, croquet at Blackheath and the new arts centre at Katoomba provided lots of activities close by.
