Turon Gates has added the 250-square-metre building to its 2,500-hectare site in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales.

“Sunvale” is perfectly suited for a hedonistic experience for up to eight guests who love to cook, relax and play together. Highlighted by exquisite timbers and rich leather furnishings, the lodge offers a luxury stay experience in a very private natural setting.

“It has been our dream to offer a truly elegant bush lodge,” said Michael Lunoe of Turon Gates.

“We believe Sunvale offers something truly exceptional and unusual. To have this much space and this much privacy is really unique.”

The lodge has ample space and multiple living areas to chill and unwind with both indoor and outdoor entertaining areas. Inside you will find high ceilings, chandeliers, artwork and a fireplace backed by panoramic views.

Four large bedrooms and two supersized bathrooms add to the feeling of space and grandeur. The full-sized kitchen is an entertainer’s delight complete with a dishwasher, multiple refrigerators, a large gas range, oven, espresso machine and everything guetsts need to make gourmet meals.

On the 100-square-metre balcony you’ll discover a timber-panelled hot tub, a gas BBQ, dining table and sun lounges to make the most of the memorable mountain and valley sunset views.

After dinner, relax in a camp chair, warming yourself around a firepit in the cool mountain air while gazing at the stars.

While the lodge does offer a 65” TV, Bluetooth speaker systems and Wi-Fi, the focus is the natural beauty of Turon Gates.

To this end, Sunvale has floor-to-ceiling glass bi-fold doors to take full advantage of the scenic views offering a complete indoor/outdoor living environment.

Guests will enjoy plush, king-sized four-poster beds in airconditioned/heated comfort and views from every room. Even the bathtub for two with a concertina glass wall provides another way to enjoy nature in luxury.

Your stay also comes with a minimal environmental footprint. The lodge is built with recycled timber, is completely off-grid and almost entirely solar-powered, with gas only used for the four-burner stovetop.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the activities at Turon Gates including guided horse rides, varied hiking trails, canoeing, swimming and trout fishing in Turon River, or to go for a scenic drive and explore the local towns and wineries.

“For fifty years Turon Gates has offered an authentic bush holiday, just three hours from Sydney,” added Mr Lunoe.

“Our guests love to get outdoors without leaving their comfort zone, whether they choose to spend time swimming in the clear stream or hiking the mountains, the property is big enough to make you feel you have the place all to yourself.”
