Architectural Holiday Homes
Don’t get us wrong, plush city-living or lazing on a beach-front oasis is to say the least…heavenly and Contemporary Hotels does have a very impressive collection to take you there – but to experience the luxury of our Aussie countryside? Well, this is a completely different ballgame.
Australia has some of the world’s most beautiful outback destinations (the most…if you ask us). Every international traveller or city-slicker must have this experience – so why not do so in style? The vibrant green views met with the healthy circulation of fresh air is a truly sought after sensation. Contemporary Hotels has 3 amazing country properties, each the epitome of architectural design excellence and divine relaxation. The large-scale of these aesthetically and functionally extravagant homes offers guests utmost privacy and exclusivity.
The Blue Mountains is home to two of our Contemporary wonderlands. The region’s beauty stems from its blue haze; a natural art form where the mixing of sunlight with drops of oil released by the eucalypts kisses the valleys. Mending Wall is hidden away at Mt Irvine; it is the serene mountain experience only two hours from the Sydney CBD. This property is named after the poem by Robert Frost and was shortlisted in the 2009 World Architecture Festival. Today it is luxury accommodation…tomorrow it could be your next country escape.
Angel Wing, embedded deep in the mountains and neighbouring the iconic Jenolan Caves, is a striking 4 bedroom property that boats country luxury. Also recognised as Peter Stutchbury’s ‘Invisible House’, it effortlessly celebrates its natural environment. The surrounding cliffs glow scarlet at nightfall and the designer light and water features impose a soothing temperament. Experience futuristic living, open-plan living and the blissful views of eucalypt forestry at Angel Wing.
The Seidler House is one of our most iconic private homes within our collection. This 4 bedroom property was designed by the late Harry Seidler, the master of Australian Architecture. It is a testament of contemporary advances in construction technology, being built into the natural rock formation of its stunning environment. Its design and atmosphere is dramatic (but perfect, nonetheless), being positioned on the very edge of a rugged sandstone escarpment. Witness the panoramic bush views overlooking a deep picturesque gorge of the Wingecarribee River, Joadja.
With summer creeping quickly, enjoy your next escape country-style in the Australian wilderness surrounded by some of the world’s best views and natural habitats… but don’t fret over experience versus luxury accommodation because Contemporary Hotels will only offer you the best accommodation experience! Discuss your favourite flora and fauna over a chilled flute of Pommery and a cheese-platter for two… or eight!
