Located on a quite side street that runs parallel to the Leura Mall, the location in Jersey Avenue is perfectly positioned to be close to everything. The Leura village centre, with it's collection of restaurants, cafés, unique shops, galleries and wonderful spring flowering cherry trees is just an easy 10 minute walk. In the other direction the start of many special bush walks and cliff top lookouts are only 5 minutes away. In addition the Katoomba/Leura Trolley bus service stops at the end of the road, ready to whisk you off to all the local tourist attractions, including the famous Echo Point and Three Sisters. The large, comfortable house has lots of areas to relax in, both inside and out. From the wide front veranda you can look above the National Park towards the neighbouring village of Katoomba, giving you a lovely open view and a perfect spot for an evening tipple. The garden at the back offer plenty of space for children to play in and a BBQ and deck to enjoy those summer days in true Australian fashion. The large lounge area give everyone plenty of space to relax and enjoy each others company, play games, watch movies or toast marshmallows over the fire. The separate dining area provides seating for 14 – enough for the biggest of Family Feasts and also has a log burner to give that extra touch of ambience. The property also has a children's nook with a TV and Play Station 3 to keep those younger members of the group entertained and having fun. Whatever the season the house has something to enjoy, be it the veranda, deck and garden in the summer or the wood fires and deep leather loungers in the cooler months, catching up with family and friends will always be pleasant. With Log fires, high ceilings and wooden floors Sophia's has lots of charm and character, yet with new appliances, soft furnishings and furniture you also have contemporary, convenient features with a hint of luxury. Sophia's of Leura – your Blue Mountains Holiday Cottage. More
