    Default In Tasmania, Nature on Display


    Andrew Quilty for The New York Times
    Drew and Bea Beswick, with their son, Luca, off the portico of their three-bedroom home. The couple moved into the home around Christmas 2009 after buying the 30-acre property in 2000 for 150,000 Australian dollars (or about $80,500 at the time) and spending another 450,000 Australian dollars ($356,000) to construct the two-story house.



    Andrew Quilty for The New York Times
    A portico of celery pine leads to the front entrance of the house and functions as an all-season entertaining area, with its Jetmaster fireplace ($2,500 from Heffernanís Home Heating in Hobart). Behind the fireplace is an open-air garden where Japanese Maple trees sit atop a bed of crushed limestone pebbles.

    i want this so bad.
    i'd change the kitchen cabinets and counters (white counters? really?) and some of the furniture but the house itself is perfect.

    Love it. But then I would live in a shack if it had views like that. Tassie has spectacular scenery.

    My lotto dream is a house on Binalong Beach, with a cabin at Cradle Mountain if I get tired of the blindingly white sand and crystal clear water.

    It's wonderful except I hate the kitchen cabinets and I'm lukewarm on the bathroom. These aren't fatal flaws though- I'd live there in a heartbeat.

    Places like this one completely confuse my senses! I am a traditional kind of guy, I love old Georgian style homes, stately brick homes, Charleston style southern homes...yet, when I see a place like this one, I get completely lost in it. I can see myself living there so easily and it throws me off balance. As I plan for my dream home purchase in the next few years, I will now have to seriously consider something like this.

    I'd throw in some midcentury furniture touches to make it more homey, but overall pretty tits.

    I like how the kitchen cabinets are hung from the ceiling - and they're awfully WHITE. This is a great place too - looks like the views/scenery is terrific.

    Not a fan of the kitchen and too modern furniture (I prefer classic), but overall it's great. I'd love to live there - provided that someone cleaned the windows for me.
