Set on a striking elevation just outside Hepburn Springs in Victoria, Australia is an architecturally designed short-stay retreat named Oikos, after the ancient Greek word for home.
Set on the edge of the gorge, this ridge-hugging modern structure is designed as a sculptural form in which to dwell.
The house is made up of a single master bedroom with expansive views over the fields from the queen-sized bed. Behind the master bedroom is a large bathroom with a separate free-standing black polished cement bath to relax away the day's aches and pains.
The house also contains a large open-plan living and dining area with a fully-equipped kitchen that you can prepare your own meals in and a large fireplace in the corner to keep the winter chills away. An expansive viewing deck and glass-framed daybed make up the rest of the property.
Spending time at Breakneck Gorge will leave you feeling on top of the world. From sunrise to sunset stunning vistas beneath the ever-changing sky unfold in every direction.
Oikos, is one of three private dwellings at Breakneck Gorge and sits harmoniously in a natural wonderland which you get to share with mobs of kangaroos that laze and graze in easy view.
