Ever wanted to escape to your own forest retreat? Well, now’s your chance, with a tranquil Dandenong Ranges property hitting the market.

‘Mimosa House’ is located at the edge of Victoria’s Wrights Forest at 24 Boundary Road, Emerald, and was designed to pay homage to its local landscape and mother nature.

The home is the brainchild of Melbourne builders Sanco, along with architects UXD Group and landscape designer Adam Naulty.

The team incorporated natural materials throughout the home, including messmate timber for interior finishes, black butt flooring and spotted gum cladding and decking.

“The crafted vantage points embrace the messmate woodland's mystical fogs and inspirational sunsets,” the listing says.

The house is made up of two separate areas connected by a glass breezeway, allowing owners “the flexibility to come together and to retreat to luxe independent living spaces”.
