'Cloudlands' consists of two stunning arts-and-craft-style homes on a magnificent 3715 square metre parcel of land atop the escarpments of Katoomba with direct access to Prince Henry Cliff Walk. The main homestead was originally built in 1916 with the writer's retreat (in fact a substantial home) built in the 1930s.
Features include high ornate ceilings, formal and informal living/dining areas, slow combustion log fires, gas fireplaces, iron claw foot baths, north-east facing deck with valley views, bespoke joinery, use of natural timbers including vertical Jarrah weatherboards and American redwood shingling, veggie patches, multiple fruit and nut trees, and 42 solar panels.
The private, yet conveniently located property is a part of the Humane Society International's Wildlife Land Trust. The backyard has access to world heritage listed walks, schools are just minutes' walk, and town a three-minute drive.
