100% unique. This open plan two bedroom house has more external decked area than internal space, but still boasts two ensuite toilets and a stunning 'external' bathroom. A ground level 'treehouse', it is situated within 2.5 acres of undisturbed savannah bush, just outside Darwin - it is the perfect retreat.
It's not that often that you get to experience an architecturally designed award warning home that has featured in multiple magazines and a coffee table book! Come and relax in our 'dream home'.
Designed by Troppo architects and lovingly 'handmade' by the owners, we have strived to maintain high Environmental standards during and post construction. The house incorporates salvaged timber, spotted gum floors from renewable sources, solar power, solar hot water and environmentally responsive design. There is no air con! And the beauty is you don't need it! Glorious dry season nights are complimented by tropical afternoons in the unique bush pool.
Outdoor living at its finest! The deck has been described as a 'jetty' into the bush. The deck roof has been purposefully designed to slope upwards taking in the panoramic treeline. It faces north allowing sunrise viewing in the east and sunset in the west.
Customised hand made furniture and stainless steel throughout compliments the overall experience. Exposed galvanised steel framework perfectly compliments the wooden floors and floor to ceiling louvres.
The whole house is fully self contained. Features that will add to your experience include hammocks, a BabyQ Weber BBQ, Nespresso coffee with complimentary daily pods.
The 'Triangle room' is the main bedroom, which has a deluxe king bed. The 'Pod' separated from the main house by the timber deck has a further queen size bed. Two addition beds are available for kids. We have a toddler, as such the house is kid-friendly. We even have a cot and change table if you need it. The deck is fully balustraded and the pool is securely fenced. There are swings, trikes, bikes and plenty of open space.
There is a fenced off, secured shed on the property, which we may access by a separate driveway with prior advice.

Другие важные подробности
The house is immersed into the bush. The house is fully screened once the sliding doors are closed, but you should be aware that there is all sorts of wildlife on site, including insects. There are plenty of possums (who might walk the full length of the roof at night) and a resident bandicoot.
Our house is only available during Darwin's Dry season, which is characterised by 33 degree days and cool nights. The house has been specifically designed to be passively cooled, so does not have air conditioning.
Girraween is a lovely quiet neighbourhood and the house is relatively small. The house would perfectly suit couples and young families, possibly two, but a party house it isn't.
