This Brilliant Beach House Seems To Float Above The Sea In Australia

No, the house is not actually floating but from the street, it definitely appears to be.

Australian architecture firm F2 Architecture designed this house that is raised to the level of the top of a hill on a single pylon that isn’t visible from the street.

This makes it appear as if it is floating. From the street, you walk across a very modern looking bridge to a 360-degree deck that lets you look out on the beach and the surrounding greenery.

Want to stay in the floating house? One night in this house costs between 440 and 1,220 Australian dollars, depending on the time of the year. Despite its cost, it does make a very romantic getaway.

The inside holds up to the outside with retractable glass walls that allow anyone staying there to experience the ocean side air on top of the view without having to leave the couch or bed.

The inside has a very modern appearance, including a hanging fireplace that seems to fit perfectly with the architecture. Overall the square footage of the house is not huge but it is well utilized with items being built into the center dividing wall so that they do not obstruct the view of the ocean. More info: f2architecture.com.au | viewretreats.com (h/t: elitedaily)
