What is hiding in the Bushes?

How about this for the quintessential bush retreat in 
the gloriously wild Australian landscape?

It snuggles into its setting so delicately, 
that it almost resembles the darkened twisted forms of 
the gorgeously ghosted gum trees.

Drama as an art form - the house, designed by 
architect David Luck as a weekender - 
(which allows for a lot of potential experimentation with layouts)
- is composed of 4 pavilions.

And, if you would Love to Live Here
you can, because it is currently for sale. 
Located in the fabulous Red Hill area of 
Melbourne's Mornington Peninsula, 
surrounded by excellent Pinot Noir producing 
wineries and rolling hills of gums and ferns, 
with views of the adjacent bays, 
this just simply has to be a slice of heaven.

Details of the sale are on Domain.


  1. Love the bold colours! This place is very unusual and cool.

  2. I agree about the quintessential bush retreat in the wild Australian landscape, but is the landscape glorious in its wilderness? Normally I would have been afraid only of bush fires; now we should worry about cyclones and flooding as well :(

    The house design is clever, and flexible. And best of all for a bush retreat, easy to keep clean.

  3. Hi Hels,

    thank you for your comment. Oh yes, I think it is a glorious landscape - wild and untamed, with the beauty coming from the textures and twisted forms, which give it a sense of tangled drama.
    And yes, I agree the house is very cleverly thought out and how marvelous to have a bush retreat that isn't precious.


Oh! Thank you for leaving me a comment!
