About Valerie & John
I have always loved the Blue Mountains as a child it was very exciting to visit. Having grown up in North Sydney, close to the CBD it was the complete opposite to where I lived. Eventually when it became possible I managed to buy this property with the hope that others may have the opportunity to enjoy the ambience of Bluebell Cottage, the surrounding bush and all the native birds that frequently visit the property. Sometimes the noisy white cockatoos make a bit of a racket but they are so charming with their antics.
Valerie & John purchased this house in 2002
Why Valerie & John chose Leura
Bluebell Cottage was currently being built when I purchased it. I fell in love with it as from the whole back section the windows are large and overlook a terraced garden as well as huge mountain trees. The four seasons that we enjoy in Australia come to reality as all the foliage and outlook changes each season. The autumn is splendid when all the trees change into various colours and then drop all their leaves. The spring comes and all new green growth appears all renewed. Summer is much cooler than the city allowing a lot of outdoor activities to occur. Winter is the time to light up our wood fire and turn on the electric blankets. Usually sometime during the winter season we see some snow. Shops in Leura Village are quaint and interesting and great spots to enjoy good food and coffee.
What makes this house unique
I love it because it is spacious, comfortable a lot of our guests comment it is great because the feel so at home. One of our guests described it as being a large tree house sitting in the middle of a lovely garden. Many guests have commented that after a busy day either sightseeing or bush walking find it so relaxing to return home to.
