The Sticks KV

Completed in May 2020, the sticks is an architectural masterpiece nestled on a private 25-acre site deep within the exclusive Upper Kangaroo River.

The house accommodates up to 10 people in absolute luxury and has been described as Kangaroo Valleys most spectacular home. Concrete, glass and warm timbers define the homes aesthetic and flow inside and out. Internally, the curated, designer furnishings help relax the generous internal spaces and create a sense of calm whilst externally the landscape design and native Australian plants further integrate the house into the stunning landscape.

Divided across two wings, there are five uniquely designed bedrooms each with their own ensuite, your own individual view of the escarpments and an outdoor space to enjoy. The Easterly aspect is perfect for watching the sun rise over the rock face and the morning mist dancing and swirling across the fields.

Four bedrooms have king sized beds and one has a queen. Two king rooms can be setup with two single XL size beds each (by arrangement).
All bedrooms have luxurious, hotel quality beds, linen and towels. Individually controlled reverse cycle air conditioning, ceiling fans and blinds cater for everyones needs in all seasons.Ensuites contain locally crafted timber vanities, overhead showers and heated towel rails. Two of the ensuites contain a freestanding bath and double showers.There is also an additional full guest bathroom in the middle of the house.

Generous in size, the kitchen includes a butlers pantry, laundry, wine fridge, bar area, two dishwashers and dual ovens. All the necessities for preparing a feast are included with multiple appliances, cooking utensils, and an abundance of dining and serving ware. The centrepiece of the chef’s kitchen is a stunning, cantilevered, concrete island bench with seating for five.A breakfast area adjoins the kitchen and provides an informal dining or conversation space. Flowing from the kitchen is the lounge and dining area. With soaring 5 metre high ceilings and framed almost entirely in glass, it manages to retain an intimate feeling with plenty of comfortable seating options for you to enjoy.
The dining room seats 10-12 around a bespoke, locally crafted, timber table which has been scorched by fire as a nod to the fragility of the surrounding bushland. The spectacular off form concrete chimney, rising 9 metres out of the ground and an imposing 5 metres wide anchors the house to the landscape. On the internal face there is a large wood burning fireplace with a floating concrete bench perfect for those cold winter nights.

Flowing off the lounge and dining room is a generous entertaining deck. Another locally crafted dining table, able to comfortably seat 18 people makes it a perfect place for long, lazy lunches. An external face of the chimney incorporates a built in gas BBQ. Bar stools, armchairs and tiered deck seating complete this relaxing space. Watch the changing colours of the escarpments as the sun begins to set and the kangaroos emerge from the trees.

A media room with plenty of comfortable seating contains an 85 inch TV with Netflix, Playstation4, board games and hundreds of DVDs – the perfect space for games and movie nights. Alternatively, relax around the corner in the reading area and lose yourself in the views into the rainforest canopy. Wi-Fi and mobile reception is available at the property. Built in speakers provide the option for wireless music streaming throughout all the entertaining areas from your devices.

An impressive collection of Aboriginal artwork is displayed throughout the house and is available for you to purchase should you wish.(Please speak with Agent) – Please note strictly NO PETS and Not Suitable for children under 10 years

Our stay was simply amazing, the home was indeed special, well appointed at every level from kitchen extremely well equipped, fireplace was perfect, dining areas superb and bedrooms just gorgeous. The setting was perfect, definitely a place to go.

Amazing property

Luxury accommodation set in beautiful surroundings. House was perfect for 4 couples. A wonderful and relaxing 5 night getaway. A negative feature is that water from showers completely covers floors in smaller ensuites. Also window coverings in bathrooms could be installed.

The Travelling Eight

Mary W from BIRCHGROVE, NSW recommends this vacation rental Our family of 9 adults enjoyed a wonderful weekend at The Sticks KV. There were so many positives to our experience there - from the amazing architecture of the house, its amenities (in particular the 5 large bedrooms each with its own bathroom), the roomy shared spaces for enjoying board games, PlayStation, family meals, TV, the well appointed kitchen, views from the decks etc. there was so much to marvel at and enjoy. We will definitely be back!


The house is even more impressive than it looked in the photos and has an amazing view from every room including the bathrooms! It is fitted out with everything you could possibly ever need for a few days away including some absolutely stunning artworks. The fireplace is massive and so perfect for winter nights. Sundowners on the deck as the kangaroos start to gather out the back was also a hit. We can't wait to find a time in our schedule to return and stay a bit longer.

Amazing Views from every room!

This place was stunning in every way! From the house to the property to all the inclusions. The owners have a phenomenal house here. The kitchen was very well equiped, the linen and towels were fantastic. Kangaroo Valley Escapes made the booking and arrival process easy. We had an amazing time, thank you.

Highly recommend

Words can't describe how magical our stay at The Sticks was - we went away as a group of 8 friends and it was exceptional in every way. From the incredible detailed architecture, to the high end layered interior design to the most amazing setting and the comfiest of beds. We felt we were in a small luxury six star resort. Thank you to the team at Kangaroo Valley Escapes for making the booking process so easy and for your professional service. We highly recommend The Stix to anyone looking for an exclusive high end break - you won't be disappointed!
