Sir David Attenborough and Bob Hawke have been guests. The Boyd family held their first group exhibition on site. It's featured on various TV shows and in luxury home magazines. In it's relatively short history, this eco arthouse has truly made a name for itself!
When you first set foot on the property, however, it is not the history that will astound you.
It's the feeling of peace that will.
This 3.2 hectare property is a sanctuary for nature. Mature trees dot the even-footed grounds, welcoming the birds up high and echidnas down below. As you stroll through the park like surrounds it's easy to feel a true connection to the stunning environment in which this property sits, especially the exquisite red rock cliff face that guards the valley, visible in all it's glory throughout the property.
Tear yourself away from the garden and into the eco mud brick home, and you will soon discover pure majesty. The architecturally designed home is striking in it's proportions – from the giant exposed beams to the 6 metre cathedral ceilings and 4 expansive living areas, the home truly allows you to breathe.
Floor to ceiling windows invite the mountain views to become part of your everyday, and natural elements are featured throughout with the African Sahara slate flooring and open fireplaces. The 4 king size bedrooms each have their own ensuite and direct access to the garden, and the main bedroom comes complete with a sitting room and double spa bath.
Of course, a home of this character and quality is also functional – it currently doubles as an art gallery, where works from famous artists such as the Boyds, Charles Blackman and John Perceval have exhibited. The central hub of the home, where you will find the awe-inspiring cathedral ceilings, light filled kitchen and butlers pantry, was once an intimate café, and 2 of the bedrooms could also be used for B & B accommodation.
Yes, it's almost impossible to believe that this home is located just 3 minutes' drive from the Kangaroo Valley township; a historic town with cafes, unique shopping and all the services you need.
But what's truly impossible to believe is that this home, for all it's grandeur and connections, still has such a calm, peaceful and welcoming heart. Come and discover this unique home today.
