How would you describe the interior style of Woolooma Glass House?
The interior style of Woolooma Glass House is natural, simple and warm, with a strong sense of 70’s character. The property was designed by acclaimed architect John Suttor who designed a number of prominent homes in and around Sydney in the 1960’s and 1970’s. When you explore the property you’ll notice the generous use of natural light and honest materials. Brick, stone and timber are all used harmoniously to create a sense of simplicity, warmth and iconic Australian bush modernism.

What makes staying at Woolooma Glass House so unique?

Can you share a little about how this incredible location came to be / the history of Woolooma Glass House?
The purchase of Mt. Woolooma came to be from my Grandfather Michael White’s love of preservation and conservation. He discovered a colony of lyrebirds inhabiting the mountain and an incredible source of valuable native flora that he wished never to be susceptible to deforestation. At the purchase of the property, he and my grandmother Dr. Judy White wanted to create a sanctuary to escape and overlook the daily life (their family farm) below them. A place for both their own escape, and hopefully a place for the creative types to come and seek inspiration from what is real and natural.
As a way of keeping the house well cared for, we have renovated and opened the house up, now known as ‘Woolooma Glass House’ accepting guests from all over the world to experience.
