Melbourne’s most prolific non-architect Alistair Knox is posthumously hard at it with any number of wonderful 60s and 70s bushland homes up for grabs right now. The one we’re posting we think is the most beautiful of the lot (though this one in Warrandyte is also bringing the goods and with a far more achievable price tag to boot!). But for now let us return to Eltham, historically recognised spiritual home of the city dwelling chakra and pottery-wheel class and this splendid home; Modern in its line and unabashed, bushland rustic in its presentation complete with rough hewn timbers, brick-paved flooring and adobe finishes, mezzanine sleeping spaces (including a kids bunk-room to rule them all), stand alone guest house, batik curtains, forested acres and sweeping lawn is sure to excite a collective of bush babies out there. For those who live for a more natural scene but require room to house an entire yoga retreat, this one is it and a bit.
