Let’s start with the bathroom. Inspired by a visit to Bali, this fabulous space has two carved doors at the entrance. A solid pebble floor. A deep bath to luxuriously sink into. A generous shower with a window looking out over the bush. And it’s big enough for a party.

Adjoining this magnificent excuse to get wet is a generous bedroom with triangular loft space off to one side.

Completing this level is a large lounge room with a firebox in the corner. Both the lounge and the bedroom have huge windows to take in the western view of the valley. Looking out, it’s like sitting in a tree-house.

This enticing cedar-clad house is built on a steep slope – and it makes the most of it.

Downstairs, there is an open living/dining/kitchen area with north and west facing windows. A gas fireplace. As well as three more bedrooms and a second bathroom on the southern side.

From the deck you can relax with an evening wine and watch the setting sun over the valley.

Walk down the hill to the creek which rises to offer water views during peak rains.

Some terraced areas for veggies (just be careful the wallabies don’t get them first) and an almost flat grassed area.

Vacant land both sides, so no neighbours.

You can really feel as if you’ve gone bush – while still being a short drive to all the amenities of Katoomba.

Currently a much loved home; it could also be a great weekender. You could even potentially split the home into two (subject to council approval).

What are you waiting for!
