Come and relax in this spacious three bedroom house brimming with character overlooking a beautiful bush valley.
The interior has a rustic elegance made possible by using as many materials from our local natural environment as possible.
With bushwalks and farm animals at your doorstep, this retreat is guaranteed to be a relaxing stay for the whole family.
Koorakai house has been sustainably crafted from basalt rocks removed from the hill into which it is built and from hundred year old recycled sand stock bricks. Its adobe floors are made from local granite soil; mosaics are designed from themes inspired by the Abercrombie river which borders the property; and the slate used in the bathroom is hand-hewn from the local quarry.
The main living area is a generous space, perfect for a family group of up to ten people. The open plan design has a large open fireplace made from local basalt stone as its central focal point, and is the perfect way to bring people together.
The king-sized master bedroom is large and spacious, with room enough for a sofa and a baby cot, and direct access to the verandah and spectacular views of the valley and bush beyond.
The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed, while the third bedroom has bunk beds that can sleep four kids or two more adults.
Relax in a bath in front of a picture window with amazing views. Enjoy the feeling of showering in a river rock setting, surrounded by mosaics made from pebbles sourced from the local Abercrombie riverbed.
The house has a large wraparound verandah which has such depth that a completely extra living space and dining area has been created. Enjoy spectacular sunsets while dining on the verandah, or relax on the verandah sofas while watching birds and wildlife drink at the dam in the gully.
There are five main walks on the property. This is a 3000 acre property which covers extensive stretches of untouched Bush. The beauty of taking our bushwalks is that you can experience a real sense of the solitariness and ruggedness of the Aussie Bush. There would rarely be other walkers who you would encounter on your hike. This area has been described as having some of the cleanest air in NSW.
Guests will also be able to feed and interact with the many friendly animals that graze in our paddock, including donkeys, alpacas and sheep.
