Escaping the city is no longer a wistful weekend dream; it feels as vital to life as oxygen when you’ve spent too long cooped up. Within an hour of Melbourne you can breathe deeper, readjust your eyes with 180-degree views across rolling hills all the way to Port Phillip Bay, and swap screen time for the bush telly as you sit by the fire pit and watch the world fade through dusty pinks to the ink of night. A slow and considered design and build process set the tone for this luxurious off-grid shipping container hideaway. You’ll find Larnook tucked into a private corner of a 160-acre flower farm, behind a 1900s dairy shed, in the Dandenong Ranges. High end but low-impact, the tiny home is split between two shipping containers with kitchen and indoor living space inside one, and king size bed and ensuite bathroom in the other. We especially love the curated local wine, tea and artwork you’ll find inside and the millions of stars you’ll see standing under the outdoor shower.
