Our home

Our house is situated in the world-renowned Blue Mountains Heritage area very close to all the stunning sites. The house consists of a large open plan living/dining/kitchen area featuring walls of windows and french doors, 2 master bedrooms - 1 with ensuite, and a 3rd very large upstairs studio/retreat with comfortable double bed, computer and working area all surrounded by windows. The front verandah overlooks the lush cottage garden and our rear deck is surrounded by a rainforesty large garden which backs onto to a famous reserve bushland.

Who we are

  1. We are two women painters in their late 50's, Jenny and Ulla. We come originally from New York where we enjoyed a rich cultural life, especially the Metropolitan Opera. Jenny who is Australian loves gardening and Ulla who is German loves music and literature. We love to live in the Blue Mountains where the unique mentality of Australia's natural habitat is giving us peace and inspiration daily.
    We are first time home exchangers, but are eager to have a successful and adventurous experience in another country or here in Australia.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are ideally located for all types of outdoor activities - especially bushwalking, mountain climbing, golfing and perhaps bicycling.
We are 1-1/2 hrs away from Sydney by car where the beaches, museums and fabulous restaurants and shopping await you.
Wentworth Falls is a quaint quiet village yet features all the necessary shopping, cafes and a country club; the convenient train station takes you to Sydney or deeper into the mountains.
Our domicile is situated a pleasant 2 kilometers from the village and we walk to it frequently through leafy roads in order to have a coffee/newspaper. Leura and Katoomba are nearby where more shopping is available as well as a number of private art galleries well-known throughout the area. There is a regional art gallery in Penrith as well as The Joan Sutherland Music Center (30-40 minutes by car).
The weather in the Blue Mountains is agreeable year round, not too hot in summer (at night there is always a cool breeze)and never fiercely cold in winter. We are at an altitude of approximately 950m.
