This sensational cedar and glass house is one of nine secluded homes constructed around the edge of Little Lovett Bay, an inlet accessible only by boat less than an hour from Sydney. The open living room has timber floors and a wood-burning stove. The kitchen is connected to the outdoor deck with folding timber windows, and skylights bring in sunlight filtered through the spotted gum trees that surround the house. The countertops are granite, and the stainless steel sink and drain board match the stainless steel gas appliances. A built-in bookcase holds cookbooks. The ground floor has two guest bedrooms and a full bath. There is an additional downstairs room that could be used as a bedroom or a formal living room. The master suite is upstairs, and includes a bedroom with a peaked ceiling, an en suite bathroom with a soaking tub and a sitting area. A walkway suspended above the living room connects the master suite with another bedroom and an office nook.
This spectacular five-bedroom house is on the market for $2 million (2.25 million Australian dollars.)
