Nestled deep within the rolling green hills of the Kangaroo Valley on the NSW south coast is this architectural masterpiece called “Ooralba”, a place that depicts the ultimate country escape.
Set high on a hillside two hours south of Sydney, the sprawling rural retreat (available for rent through Luxe Houses) is the brainchild of creative director and renowned architect Nic Graham and is the perfect complement to its picturesque surrounds.
Not only does the seven-bedroom home boast sweeping 180-degree views of the untouched Kangaroo Valley through vast floor-to-ceiling windows and acre-after-acre of manicured gardens, it also has a kitchen that would send any culinary aficionado into a spin, an art gallery that would a leave a curator green with envy, and a furniture collection that is worth the visit itself for any design-lover. Before you step into the kitchen, be sure to raid the orchards, vegetable patches, olive groves growing at the back door. Scroll down and take a tour through this magical home.
