The space
Kunanyi House is a beautiful self contained retreat on Mount Wellington in Fern Tree, Tasmania. The McGlashan designed 4 bedroom house harmonizes with its natural setting. Enjoy the peaceful gardens, tranquil reflection pools and mountain walks...all just a 10 minute drive away from the centre of Hobart.

Built in 1969 Kunanyi House was designed by David McGlashan to provide a space which allows a family to live with nature. The floor to ceiling windows in each of the rooms bring the light, different aspects of the gardens and the mountain into the living spaces. The architecture and landscaping have elements of a Japanese aesthetic creating a contemplative atmosphere. Aspects of the design are shared with McGlashan's other creations such as the Heide II Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne. The surrounding rainforest and it's wildlife create a sense of being immersed in Nature despite being only a 10 minute drive from the centre of Hobart.

Kunanyi House was originally designed to invite the mountain environment inside and provide a close connection with its surrounds and so is a lot cooler than many homes. Throughout the year and especially in winter it can be very hard to keep the whole house warm so definitely bring warm comfy clothes to wear inside, and maybe even ugg boots! There’s a wood fire in the living room and heaters in the bedrooms.

Guest access
Kunanyi House is a spacious house with tranquil landscaped gardens to which guests will have full access. The main living area has a wood fire and view over the reflective pools. A large fully equipped kitchen with dining area has french windows leading out to the garden. There are four bedrooms - three with futon style double beds - and two bathrooms. Outside there are two courtyards with seating. There is parking for 3 cars. It is possible to walk from the house directly to the walking tracks on Mount Wellington.
