Built on historic farmland in New South Wales, Australia, by architect Cameron Anderson, Gawthorne’s Hut is a luxury, rentable tiny home deep in the peaceful countryside. A galvanized exterior, steeply pitched solar panel roof, and abundant use of glass and wood make this off-grid tiny home the perfect sustainable getaway.

Gawthorne’s Hut offers accommodations for two. There is a kitchenette and breakfast bar with beautiful views of the surrounding grasslands and hills. A full bath and shower with large glass windows create a quiet place to rest and rejuvenate. In the bedroom, a handmade king bed perfectly fits the space. The home even has a full-size wood-burning stove.

While Gawthorne’s Hut has WiFi and all the trimmings, it remains off-grid. The property is far from any stress and has its own barbecue pit with plenty of space outside. The angled roof allows for a lot more ceiling space (at least on one side) than you see in most tiny homes. Paneling and wood furniture create a warm and cozy interior for occupants.

Unique design and custom modern features help this project stand out. For example, an overhang has been integrated into the single-pitch roof, creating a beautifully shaded porch. Surrounded by an open valley and trees, Gawthorne’s Hut is just steps from a private pond.

In the center of the tiny home, recycled bricks were sourced from an old building on the property — the “original” Gawthorne’s Hut. Wild Willow Timber Designs handmade furniture for the new space. Moving through the interior, other features of interest include the full-size tub, built-in bookshelves and the unbroken views of hills in the distance.

The brick wall that acts as a headboard for the bed also creates a partial dividing wall with the bathroom. With only this one dividing wall, there isn’t much private space in Gawthorne’s Hut. Polished concrete floors flow seamlessly from the tiles of the tub and shower to the kitchen and bedroom.
