house at kangaroo valley

for most people, a 40-hectare, virtually inaccessible escarpment in kangaroo valley might not seem an obvious choice as a location for a weekender. but it took tony white and alexander michael (aka siloboy) just 20 minutes to snap it up. neither white, a jeweller, or michael, an interior designer, was daunted by the prospect of building a house on the steep mountainside, which could only be reached by a precipitous winding track.
