Wombat Towers

Wombat Towers

As we head towards the weekend, all we can think about is how much we would love our own weekend house. We stumbled across Wombat Towers, built on 40-hectares in the Kangaroo Valley, New South Wales and we've been picturing ourselves there ever since. Owners Tony White and Alexander Michael wanted 5 things out of their weekend property - 100 acres, views, privacy, rainforest and natural water. They got them all. See more below the jump…

This house can only be reached by a winding track as it is built on the steep mountainside. Owner and architect Alexander Michael was inspired by this challenge and a year later Wombat Towers was complete. With a central living, dining and kitchen space acting as the center of the house, to either side are 2 freestanding bedrooms and a long timber walkway links them all together. Our favorite feature is the 27 meter long reflection pool that runs the length of the house. We like how this home has a really raw, industrial feel and that it doesn't detract from its beautiful surroundings.
