Lyra - Kangaroo Valley
Overlooking the Barrengarry Mountain-range, midway between the villages of Kangaroo Valley and Berry, this beautiful house is an oasis that they have found no one wants to leave. The property is located atop seven acres of undisturbed rainforest that serves as an incredible amphitheatre for the rich birdsong of the Australian bush.
Lyra is a unique house, hand crafted from materials sourced from the property's surrounds. Much of the timber has been felled on-site and walls built from rocks and boulders found on the land. The kitchen ceiling linings had a previous life as the hard-working roof of the old Kangaroo Valley Hall and heralds its vintage marker stamps.
The front living area with its glass roof panels delights through the seasons as a portal to the sky and the chance to spot the odd eagle overhead while lying on the lounge in front of the slow combustion wood fire. The back living room is a cocoon of sofas for curling up into a good book or enjoying your favourite film on the large television.
