The site of Katoomba restaurant, Pins on Lurline, and its Federation home and guest house, have been bought by a young family for an undisclosed sum.

The 132 Lurline Street property, built in 1898 by local businessman H. A. Bundy, was sold through an expression of interest campaign which closed in March.

The deal was brokered by Gunning Real Estate sales agent Tom Speakman on behalf of Blue Mountains restaurateurs Simon and Keiko Kjelgaard, who purchased the property in 2012. 

“They are very pleased with the outcome and are excited to move forward with their plans to move to Japan after more than 20 years operating the Pins brand in the Blue Mountains and four years on Lurline Street,” Speakman said.

“The new owner will be running the restaurant themselves and renting out the guest house as a business. They are looking for a change of pace and will relocate from the Sydney CBD. It is an exciting adventure for them as they have a young family and no restaurant experience."

The restaurant seats 60 people. The property has a self-contained garden holiday cottage, Keiko’s Nest as well as a private residence with three bedrooms, Speakman said.

The original house was designed to be built ‘out in the bush’ and the owners operated a small tearoom in the hustle and bustle of Katoomba main street, its website says. 

Pins, formerly known as Pins And Noodles, originated in Katoomba Street some 20 years ago and moved to Leura village before finally coming to rest in Lurline Street, hence the new name, ‘Pins On Lurline’.
