The space

Located at Katoomba in the heart of the Blue Mountains - is ATELIER, the former studio of renowned Australian artist Tim Maguire, winner of the Moet & Chandon Australian Art Fellowship in 1993.

ATELIER is nestled in the grounds of historic 'Burnie Brae' (Circa 1908) in a quiet suburban location and is within easy walking distance of the local main street with its shops, cafes and restaurants.

A short and easy drive away is the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park, with all its natural beauty and various attractions just waiting for you to explore.

Externally, ATELIER is unassuming and blends in well with the main house. However, internally is has an astonishing open plan design with a loft-style bedroom. ATELIER is truly a unique concept in modern and stylish mountain holiday accommodation and living.

Offering a cosy wood fire to snuggle up by on a cold night, a relaxing spa after that enduring bushwalk and a queen size bed at the end of a fantastic day.

ATELIER is your home away from home and is available to couples seeking a romantic getaway from that busy city life.

NOTE: We do not take booking for Thu & Fri combinations unless the Sat is included.

Minimum 3 nights stay when a public holiday is involved

Minimum 4 night stay over the Christmas and the New Year period.

Firewood:
We know you will want to use the fireplace as part of your stay at ATELIER, but please note that we are not bound to supply firewood at any time as part of your agreement to stay at the property, as the premises does have gas heating provided.

Generally firewood is supplied by us during the cooler months (Apr to Sep), but at no time is its supply ever guaranteed.

So there are times when you may have to supply firewood own at your own expense.

For an update on this item and its availability, you are better off sending me a text or e-mail closer to the time of your stay and I will advise accordingly.

When firewood is available (which is most of the time in the cooler months), it is located under the verandah extension on the main house to keep it dry.

So please help yourself.

However, you are required to make your own kindling by using the axe provided to make smaller pieces of firewood, to get the fire started.

If you are not confident using an axe to make the kindling, I can only suggest that you purchase some (at your own expense) from one of the local service stations o the highway on on the way up to the mountains.

I do not have the labour resources on-site to sort this out for you.

During the warmer months (October to March) your are welcome to use what is available if required. But again, there is no guarantee during warmer months of it’s supply.

Should we not have any firewood on-site, it can obtained at your own expense, and can usually be bought at one of the two 24 hour service stations located on the main highway.

Mike was a good host and provided everything we needed for a great stay. Communication was good and the description was accurate. There was a lovely welcome pack which included a variety of teas, milk and TimTams which was a nice touch.

I cannot recommend Atelier enough! The property is absolutely stunning - from the large windows, to the feature fireplace, to the amazing spa bath to the gorgeous mezzanine (URL HIDDEN) is a work of art. It is spacious, modern and extremely clean. Atelier is well placed for exploring Katoomba - we visited Echo Point and also went walking around Wentworth Pass. Mike is a great unobtrusive host with great communication if you have any questions about anything. We were blown away by this property and really hope to return in the future.

Lovely place. A hard copy welcome pack would compliment the very detailed electronic information. Loved all the architectural features of this very stylish home. The gorgeous bathroom could benefit from some additional heating but really enjoyed the fabulousl jacuzzi bath. While place complimented by pretty gardens shared. Thank You

The apartment is ideally situated for exploring the Blue Mountains. The apartment itself is beautiful, high ceiling, gallery bedroom, well fitted kitchen and modern bathroom with shower and bath. Unfortunately the weather was warm during our stay so we didn't need to light the fire! A short walk from the train station, shops and restaurants in Katoomba, there are a couple of hop on / hop off tour buses that were perfect for our short stay to see the area.

This place is perfect for a romantic weekend away. It looks good in the photos but even better in person. It was comfortable and had everything we needed. The bedroom and bed were very comfortable, the kitchen and living area was well equipped and the bathroom was very large. The spa was a highlight of the trip. Mike was very helpful in the lead up to our arrival but we didn't need to meet him or need his help during the stay. Everything was already setup for us. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time we are in the Blue Mountains.

Lovely little place in a fab location. The spa bath was great too! Unfortunately the wifi was poor and only available in one area in the house (iPhone 5 and Nexus 5) and the microwave was in need of a good clean. But other than that it was a pleasant stay and we'd recommend to others looking for a place in the Blue Mountains.

Response from Mike:
Hi Claire, Many thanks for the 2 items that you have bought to my attention. The WIFI I had previously addressed and moved the modem to a different location to improve the signal strength and obviously there was still an issue with it when you stayed. To resolve the issue I have purchased a WIFI booster which should fix the problem and will install it next weekend when I am up there. With the microwave I have spoken to my cleaner and have since inspected the problem myself. It is not so much that the item is not clean, but more to do with that something has been burnt (some sort of plastic) onto the surface making it appear unclean. If it was just a simple microwave then I would just replace it as they are cheap items to buy. But the one we have in ATELIER is a built in combined microwave and convection oven and to replace it is not cheap and the problem would just happen again. In the meantime my cleaner has said that she will ensure that the microwave is cleaned just incase she had actually missed it prior to your stay. Thank you once again for you most valuable input as it is much appreciate so we can endeavour to keep up to our guest expectations. Yours sincerely, Michael English ATELIER Blue Mountains Australia

Firstly, I would like to thank you for viewing one or both of the properties that I have listed with Air BNB.

Burnie Brae (circa 1908 ) and ATELIER (the former artist studio)

Burnie Brae - is main house on the property and was built in an Edwardian/Federation style in 1908, and is one of the premier houses in the area.

Whilst retaining many original features including it's Wunderlich pressed metal ceilings, the house also provides a sense of warmth, comfort, space and homeliness (with modern day conveniences of course) and is suitable for one or two couples to stay.

ATELIER - is the former artist studio of the previous owner and is nestled in the rear garden at the end of short winding path through the north-side garden.

Externally, the studio is very deceiving as it blends in well with the main house, but internally, it can easily be described as light, airy and modern and is perfect for a single person or a couple to stay.

And now a little bit about me:

Prior to moving up here over 16 years ago, I grew up in the inner city area of Sydney and use to always be drawn to the Blue Mountains in my youth for bushwalking and camping expeditions with a nature club that I use to belonged to.

Over the years I have tackled many of the spectacular bush-walks and enjoyed some of the areas best cafes, pubs and restaurants, so I am happy to give out a 'locals' recommendations where consistency, service and atmosphere are the key defining factors.

As well as running Burnie Brae (circa 1908) & ATELIER, I also have a full time job in the city.

I guess I would best describe myself, as pretty much an easy going and helpful sort of guy, that enjoys most things that life has to offer, especially busk-walking, gardening and cooking.

If you see me around the house , its usually on the weekends about one a month, so just say Hi !
