About Michael English
Firstly, I would like to thank you for viewing one or both of the properties that I have listed with Air BNB. Burnie Brae (circa 1908 ) and ATELIER (the former artist studio) Burnie Brae - is main house on the property and was built in an Edwardian/Federation style in 1908, and is one of the premier houses in the area. Whilst retaining many original features including it's Wunderlich pressed metal ceilings, the house also provides a sense of warmth, comfort, space and homeliness (with modern day conveniences of course) and is suitable for one or two couples to stay. ATELIER - is the former artist studio of the previous owner and is nestled in the rear garden at the end of short winding path through the north-side garden. Externally, the studio is very deceiving as it blends in well with the main house, but internally, it can easily be described as light, airy and modern and is perfect for a single person or a couple to stay. And now a little bit about me: Prior to moving up here over 18 years ago, I grew up in the inner city area of Sydney and use to always be drawn to the Blue Mountains in my youth for bushwalking and camping expeditions with a nature club that I use to belonged to. Over the years I have tackled many of the spectacular bush-walks and enjoyed some of the areas best cafes, pubs and restaurants, so I am happy to give out a 'locals' recommendations where consistency, service and atmosphere are the key defining factors. As well as running Burnie Brae (circa 1908) & ATELIER, I also have a full time job in the city. I guess I would best describe myself, as pretty much an easy going and helpful sort of guy, that enjoys most things that life has to offer, especially busk-walking, gardening and cooking. If you see me around the house , its usually on the weekends about one a month, so just say Hi !
Michael English purchased this Cottage in 1999

Charming cottage accommodation
What a lovely place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our brief time at Atelier. The little cottage was perfect for our needs and quite cozy. Even though it was freezing cold outside! The bed was very comfortable and the spa bath was to die for, especially after being out in the cold weather! The fireplace was gloriously warm. Michael was a gracious and accommodating host and I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending this welcoming cottage to any discerning couple. We will DEFINITELY be back.
A lovely place to relax
Michal was an absolute pleasure to deal with and this little place was everything we expected it to be. We will head back again for sure :)
Relaxing in Katoomba
Great peaceful little slice of Katoomba where time is of no importance
Beautiful and peaceful
We had a fantastic time during our stay. The Atelier was so peaceful and pleasant upon arrival and all throughout our stay. Even on the lead up to our stay, the gentleman was extremely helpful and kind when we were booking. Fire place had to be the favourite part of our stay.
The only down point would be that there was no washing facilities within the place.
Great accommodation and location with top facilities. Highly recommend.
The main house was excellent
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay because the unit was so close to all ammenties and was quiet.
