This week's Mid Week House Snoop finds us an idyllic Palatial home set amongst the backdrop of the beautiful & unique Australian Blue Mountains in Wentworth Falls - this home built c. 1940 was at one time the 'Toll Hotel', and also home to famous Australian artist, John Olsen [one of my favourite Australian artists] who built a studio cabin on the grounds. It is steeped in history, beautiful surrounds, and luxurious appointments - a prefect Mountain retreat! Read On... Enjoy - S x

The sandstone wine cellar which formed part of the Toll's Hotel has been transformed into a dramatic gothicstyle dining room with timber-lined cathedral ceilings and wrought-iron light fittings.
The original garden change rooms are now used as studio accommodation. The property's one time owner, well known Australian Artist John Olsen, built a cedar studio, now converted to wonderfully spacious two bedroom, two storey cottage providing plenty of room for guests, with two levels of living space and rustic timber finishes.
