Overview

About the property

Blue Cockatoo is a lovingly restored 1890s cottage in a sought after street just a short walk to Leura’s famous café and shopping district.

In a word, Blue Cockatoo is cosy. A dual fireplace opens into two separate living areas furnished with plush classic couches, cushions, armchairs and furnishings. The centre of the cottage is the heart of the home with a living and fireplace that flows into a dining with a long country style dining set and kitchen.

Central heating throughout and underfloor heating in the bathrooms ensures that Blue Cockatoo will always be warm.

The beauty of this cottage is the balance of classic furnishing alongside it’s heritage and authentic foundations. There are period details throughout including led light doors and windows, high ceilings, original hardwood flooring, brass features and light fittings.

The kitchen is equipped with everything needed to cook as well as a Nespresso for coffee lovers and a delux Nutri-Bullet for the health conscious. The cottage style is brought to life through the timber benchtops, a retro red SMEG fridge and hanging pots from an iron rack.

Each of the three bedrooms are classically styled with queen beds. The main bedroom features a four-poster bed and a bay window where you can read and gaze into the side garden through led light glass. Open the rear bedroom doors for direct access to the sun-drenched cottage garden.

Entertainment includes free wifi, HD TV, foxtel platinum and some basic board games.

Blue Cockatoo also has a beautiful yard to stroll through that enjoys the warm sun from the east and north. Garden beds are stone walled and lined with tree and plant life that provides privacy and a peaceful ambience. The afternoon sun can be enjoyed on the front timber and weatherboard verandah.

The location is also perfect for those without transport, with a business stop across the street and a flat walk to the town centre or the train station.

Blue Cockatoo is perfect for those looking for a romantic getaway, an authentic mountains getaway or to relax with friends and family.

Comfortable property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed as couple but this comfortable property would well suit a family or indeed 3 couples. It is well located and the central heating is a welcome feature in the cool climate of the mountains.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at the Blue Cockatoo. The house is lovely and warm. Well appointed with everything you might need. Walking distance to Leura shops which was so convenient. Dave was extremely lovely to deal with and answered all our questions.
