  • Description


    We are two broadminded, creative artists living in the Blue Mountains about 2 hours outside Sydney in a town called Medlow Bath located between Katoomba and Blackheath. Gary is a printmaker and there is a gallery and art studio on site showing his and other artist's work. Les is a professional chef and he specialises in home cooked meals often with an Asian twist. We have a property of about 5 acres with a main house, rental cottage, printing studio, beautiful gardens, tennis court, ponds, stable and riding rink. We are only about a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to the nearest train station which will link you to other Blue Mountain towns and take you straight into Sydney central station. Our home offers a peaceful, natural and friendly experience.
