Description

This house was designed by Dr Mark Dewsbury, Centre for Sustainable Architecture, University of Tasmania. Mark has designed a house that, on the edge of a World Heritage National Park, aims to capture Tasmania's alpine heartland.

The house is a highly efficient solar passive design, capturing the warmth from the sun and releasing it at night. There is also an air-based heat pump that heats the concrete slab of the house. Insulation is extensive with double glazing throughout.

The 100 acres that the house is on was clear-felled 30 years before purchase and now, 50 years on, the forest is thriving. The house footprint is just 86 square metres yet while compact the design feels spacious.

Cradle Cave features

The house design was inspired by the curved seed pods of native hakea plants. High expansive windows provide extensive views of alpine vegetation creating a sense of being part of the incredible Tasmania mountain high country. While sitting in the warmth of the house you can look out at snow-covered trees, feeling cocooned and protected from the elements.

Various native animals can be spotted day and night with an extensive array of birds, the occasional wombat, possums, paddy melons and wallabies. This is an ideal location for a romantic weekend, family gathering or simply time-out from a busy lifestyle.

'When the sun is shining it's glorious, but even when it's grey, and you're sitting in the warmth with a good glass of red, and looking out at the floor to ceiling nature, it's pretty idyllic',

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent n Awesome We stayed here for Easter break and just loved our stay with our 5yr old.. House seems pretty new and so much spacious for us to move around and we were really awe’d by the whole property itself with good heating facility in the middle of the woods.. We loved our morning walk at the trail to the creek. It was just perfect place for our family. Cradle mountain was not far, we spent more time exploring as we stayed closer to the mountains.. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very beautiful place Nice place in a very quiet and secluded surrounding. away from noise, in the middle of nature. Very clean, spacious, bright. all perfect, There are no shops in proximity but only 20min to Nationalpark at Craddle Mtns. Be aware of septic tank, we had a slight problem with the toilet not working, but the owner fixed it straight away and it worked again after that incident. TV wasn't working either on arrival, but again got fixed by owner later on.
