Watch fish jump and kayakers glide by at this waterfront shipping container retreat. Crafted over two self-contained levels, the bespoke Murray James-designed home is cleverly constructed from five repurposed shipping containers.

Shower beneath a skylight under a blanket of stars, enjoy a glass of wine as you watch life on the tree-lined river and feel your shoulders drop as you pause in a specially curated space sitting proudly on Awabakal Land. The best of the Hunter awaits.

The space
Retreat from the busyness of life at this luxe industrial retreat overlooking Throsby Creek. As electric gates close behind you, so too the demands of modern day living are shut out for a while.

Enter the converted container home's striking living space through an upcycled wooden door. The entire upstairs space is kept comfortable year-round by ducted air conditioning. There's a restful master bedroom with king sized bed and luxurious contemporary bathroom flooded with natural light.

An industrial style kitchen (complete with Breville semi automatic espresso machine) and deck overlooks Throsby Creek where fish jump at twilight and birds dive and swoop. Pour yourself a glass of M&J Becker Wine, sink into the leather lounge and experience the restful feel of this waterfront abode.

External stairs lead to a separate self-contained studio style apartment making this industrial chic retreat ideal for two couples or friends travelling together. Polished concrete floors, queen size bed, kitchenette, stylish bathroom with bath and shady outdoor deck overlooking lush gardens are on offer in the downstairs space. A ceiling fan keeps things cool in warmer weather while blackout drapes ensure a good night's sleep.

Throsby Creek Retreat features a work space overlooking the waterway, stylish furnishings, Smart TV, wifi, modern artwork, Ecology crockery, Salus bath wash and quality linen and towels. There's a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and a separate laundry.

Its central Tighes Hill location allows for easy exploration of all that Newcastle, Australia's second oldest city, and the Hunter has to offer.
