REVIEWED IN SYDNEY MORNING HERALD WEEKEND AWAY 31 MAY 2014
Ancient rhododendrons soar skywards in this magical one acre garden featuring mature trees and your own personal miniature pine forest with picturesque rambling trails. In the morning a pervading sense of peace will set the tone for your day as you awake to sounds of mountain birdlife with a background of calm. When night draws in, retreat to the warm refuge of your roaring fire and European style hydronic heating.
Kerambi is an authentic mountain cottage situated in one of Blackheath's premier streets within walking distance of the lush greens of the golf course and a romantic stroll through the canopy of ever changing maple leaves which line the way to the village.
Polished floor boards covered by genuine Persian carpets are found in each bedroom, sitting room and the lounge room, whilst travertine marble lines the floor of the hand painted French kitchen with think marble benchtops and European oven. The travertine marble extends through the laundry and finishes at the tessellated tiled bathroom featuring a large claw foot cast iron bath and frameless glass shower with rainwater head.
The dining area is cradled by the mature English garden and offers a serene reflective space bathed in sunlight to retreat to after a crisp mountain day.
Bedrooms are large with two rooms boasting queen size beds, one with garden views and the third, with stunning views of the rhododendron offering two comfortable single beds.
Antiques dot the house in keeping with its mountain heritage.
