Leuralla is one of the oldest Blue Mountains' heritage listed homes set within 12 acres of temperate gardens.
The historic home was completed just prior to World War I and is the second home on the site. The first, which was lost in the bushfires of 1909, was in the New England style of architecture.
The design of Leuralla was influenced by the world famous American architect of the day Frank Lloyd Wright. The home is Heritage listed and is displayed in its original state, including original paint finishes, furnishings, fixtures and fittings.
The home was built by local, skilled trades people who took great pride in their workmanship. All of the construction was carried out by hand. The timber work took two years to complete as the home was built in a pre-electric tool era and includes the wood panelling, sideboards, cabinets and even the dining room table and tulip motif chairs.
The house was considered absolutely modern for its time and has a central vacuum cleaning system as well as an intercom system.
