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.
