With Spring on our doorstep there is no better time than now to head up to the fabulous Mending Wall in the Blue Mountains. With Mt. Wilson being just a short drive away, you can visit the exquisite gardens which are in full-bloom throughout September and October – and most colourful!
Not only does Mt. Wilson offer magnificent bushlands, hiking, rainforests and canyons – but it is home to some of Australia’s most beautiful flowers. The gardens are almost like a box of assorted chocolates! There lies elm, beech, liquidambar, lime and pink cherry trees throughout the enclosure. Why not bring along a picnic?
After a tiresome day strolling down the avenues of trees – head back to Mending Wall for a little R&R… This property encapsulates a contemporary meets country retreat personality. Its desirable qualities are recognised within the designer realm when it was shortlisted in the 2009 World Architecture Festival.
Giddy up’ Sydneysiders and venture out to the Blue Mountains before Spring !
Embedded in Sydney’s playground of Palm Beach, lies the exquisite Sereia home. This four-bedroom sandstone masterpiece will indulge and relax you within an instance. Effortless style creates the most tranquil serenity, especially when combined with northerly views, peering over Pittwater and Lion Island.
Sereia offers exceptional facilities and features that will exceed your ‘typical getaway’ expectations, containing four bedrooms, inclusive of two King’s and one Queen with en-suites as well as a Twin with two single beds. Interiors designed by Marco Meneguzzi flatter the atmposhphere.
Vacating at Sereia is a blissful experience. Enjoy a pocket-full of sunshine by the pool-side cabana lounge as you flick on the plasma for some chilled-out tunes or sink into the comfort of an over-sized day bed, and afterwards you can ponder your blissed out day with a Mai Tai and movie by the open fire. Up for a refreshing work-out? Take a dip in the solar-heated swimming pool and turn on the swimming jets to get some laps in. There is also an outdoor shower and bath that witnesses the best views over Pittwater – a beautiful way to start the day!
Sereia is an exceptional Palm Beach property; a nearby oasis, an inviting home, a luxurious beach-pad, a slow-paced retreat and one of the finest Sydney-bound holidays you will ever experience.
There is not a better time than now to head up to the gorgeous Pacific Road House in Palm Beach. You will arrive amidst the best whale-watching and dolphin season, definitely not an opportunity to pass up until next year!
What more is the fact that you will be staying in the divine Pacific Road House; a magical haven built high on a hill with panoramic views over-looking Palm Beach Lighthouse, Pittwater and stretching out to the Central Coast. This three bedroom 1950s coastal pad ticks all the right boxes for what you want when renting out a beach house. It’s light, sunny presence sets a joyful, relaxing vibe whilst its open-plan living area extends to an enormous sandstone balcony with a north-easterly facing position. Perfect for entertaining guests! Mull some wine for the occasion and get yourself cosy on the sun-lounges in time to watch the sunset sink into the night.
The interiors of Pacific Road House are impeccably brilliant and stunning. White walls and beige neutral basics backdrop this shabby-chic oasis. This clean structure allows pops of cirrus-blue and yolk-yellow to take centre stage and generate a homely-warmth throughout the property. The relaxed coastal luxury feel Pacific Road House has is recognized in Belle Magazine (2008).
Only an hour away from the CBD, we offer the perfect Sydneysider getaway.
For the rest of Winter turn off that alarm and head to the Palm!!
