NewsThe Amazing 'Earth House' With A Mowable Roof

Spanning 14.5 acres in Goobarragandra, NSW, ‘Earth House’ is the eco haven that has everyone talking.

Nestled between rolling hills at 2/21 Walls Creek Road East the house epitomises eco-conscious living and runs 100% off the grid. But sustainability aside, it’s the home’s nature-inspired design that’s wowing potential buyers and fans of modern architecture.

Seamless integration with nature

Strategically positioned within the hillside, the house minimises its footprint on the environment and maintains a regulated interior climate. Consider it the designer home completely integrated with the landscape.

You can even mow the roof.

“We wanted to both minimise our impact on the visual amenity of the Goobarragandra valley and limit our impact on the environment. Building an earth-sheltered house fulfilled both these goals.”
