Get The Band Back Together – This Hills House (Complete With Sound Temple And Outdoor Bathroom) Is Now Up For Grabs
While a classic character home or a slick new build is certainly nothing to scoff at, we really can’t resist showing off some absolutely one-of-a-kind properties. Courtesy of our mates at Crib Creative, we’ve had another sneak peek at a truly unique home.
Set amongst five acres of bush, the property features two dwellings, which have a combined three beds and three baths. Both reflect their rustic surrounds with plenty of jarrah and stone used throughout, as well as a classic Metters wood stove. Generous deck areas and French doors make the most of the beautiful bushland views, as well as through a combination of large-scale and Gothic-style lancet windows – but there’s nowhere that the home’s bush setting is more appreciated that in the spectacular bathroom. Adjoining the primary bedroom, the full-size enclosed outdoor bathroom is the perfect place to appreciate the majesty of nature whilst performing your morning ablutions. We can certainly picture ourselves listening to the sound of morning birdsong while relaxing in that clawfoot bathtub.
But that’s not the home’s only unique feature – not by far. The property is also home to the Sound Temple: a tipi-inspired structure designed for sound healing. With its pyramid-like shape, acoustics are optimised, particularly for sound baths conducted using ancient gongs or singing bowls. It also looks extremely cool. (BYO gong.)
To complete your creative-in-the-bush experience, there is also a cedar-lined studio amongst the garden that can be used as an office or studio. Now that’s not the worst place to work from home, is it?
The property’s garden has a netted orchard, vegetable garden, permaculture plan and large chook run, as well as powered shed (plus three more sheds for gardening, wood storage and potting!). Continuing the indoor-outdoor theme, the lush and leafy alfresco dining area is outfitted with a plumbed outdoor kitchen – making summer barbecues all that much easier.
