An outdoor kitchen in the bush: Blackheath, NSW

Ever wanted to experience living in the bush, eking out a survival with nothing more than your wits, a bushcraft knife, and a fully-functioning outdoor kitchen? An opportunity could be Airbnbing your way shortly. Ok, so this property also comes with other basic necessities of life like underfloor heating, a walk-in-robe and a dual carport. But you’d better keep that knife handy, just in case


This remarkable property is situated on the picturesque Shipley Plateau, just outside Blackheath in the Blue Mountains. It’s evident a huge amount of thought and effort has gone into the architecture; the property boasts a huge glass area affording uninterrupted views across the bush, yet has a solar passive design keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter.


Head out one of the many doors and there’s 38 acres to explore, with private walking trails leading to spectacular private lookouts over the Kanimbla Valley. The walk back might make you thirsty, and the wisping wood smoke from the chimney may set your gastric juices flowing. But the fact that this write-up is on the Grillo Projects page tells you the owner has already catered for that…
