"Westhill" Glenn Murcutt AO Designed

Simply one of the most exclusive hidden jewels of the Upper Blue Mountains, tucked away towards the exclusive Grand Canyon and Evans Lookout, "Westhill" is a 140-year-old-property whose iconic farmhouse was extended by world renowned multi-award winning Australian architect Glenn Murcutt.

With two magnificent glass-walled pavilions that back onto the Blue Mountains National Park, the due North vistas are superb. Murcutt's genius combination of 'floating' pavilions, exquisite log fireplaces and a protected outdoor BBQ room provides for an outstanding family living and entertaining experience. Superb accommodation with a master ensuite & walk-in robe, plus multiple french doors out to the verandah, all herald a prestige lifestyle.

This well appointed, immaculately presented home offers high ceilings, ducted heating and a main bathroom that sports a bath painted by former owner artist Jenny Kee and hand-made tiles by artist partner Michael Ramsden.

There are few properties that epitomise a mountain escape as flawlessly as this Blackheath estate. Occupying 1.6 hectares, a pebble stone approach is surrounded by a multitude of floodlit garden rooms that have been extensively developed and lovingly nurtured by the current owners over a period of 17 years. They are nothing short of outstanding.

An extensive irrigation grid, installed when this was first a nursery in the 1940s, feeds the organic vegetable garden. There are fruit tree and Wisteria arbours, a Koi pond, wood ducks on the dam, kangaroos at dusk, thousands of spring & autumn bulbs and constructed pathways with meticulous box hedging. Hidden away is a Poplar Sapling branch teepee and an orchid shed offering quiet contemplative spaces. Boasting shade, shelter, surprise and adventure this property is as much about the magnificent park-like gardens, which include an old pine forest, expansive grasslands, deciduous woodland and cold-climate plantings, as it is about the award winning home.
