Sunday school time, Sydney School to be exact, and hold onto your yoga mats kids because this one is a pure oasis of nature-centred design (though the architect and year of build are not yet confirmed) perched within a bushland eden. There is a lot to ooh and ahh about here but for us it’s all about that living zone completed with cylindrical brick fireplace, tile and expanses of windows dripping with light and warmth. Cosy up or cool down, this one embodies the organic eudemonia of place via its design, which most soy slinging, wholefood serving, wellness retreats could only dream to emulate.

**Update** This beautiful house has had a few admiring visitors who have kindly informed us that this is the work of notable Seaforth firm Robertson & Hindmarsh built circa 1959!
