Erawar, the yurt home at Kangaroo Valley, has been sold for $2.41 million, amid a spurt in sales at the popular weekender destination.

Redesigned in 2000 by Ian McKay with jarrah and oregon, the home (pictured above), which sold through Frank Barker at Raine & Horne, is fitted with soffit sprayers for bushfire protection.

The outbuildings on the 10ha holding include a yoga studio. It is credited as the first Iyengar yoga ­studio in the valley conducted by Susan Rowntree-Robertson.

Mount Scanzi Road’s other sales have included the 3ha property of Aniela Kos, the founder of Galeria Aniela, for $1.7 million. Last traded for $109,000 in 1992, it was sold by South Coast Prestige Properties agent Carrie Bond. Guests have included Sir David Attenborough.

Kangaroo Valley’s latest offering is Sky Ridge (pictured above), the $800 a night black barn tourist accommodation premises designed by Alexander Michael.

Its $2.25 million listing comes after the recent death of Michael’s partner, the acclaimed jeweller Tony White, who maintained an 85 ha retreat at Upper Kangaroo River.

There are whispers that hospitality industry recruiter, Rick Harasty, is set to move to the valley after selling his Bondi Beach penthouse which has a $7 million guide for its August 22 ­auction.
