Categories: Homes / Dwellings
This week we visit Underhill, and incredible hobbit-home like, eco-cave house built into a hillside. The off-the-grid house is cleverly constructed to resemble a cave. With no electricity in the house, the stone, wood and rustic features truly make you feel like you’re stepping back in time.
Underhill is an incredible hobbit-home like, eco-cave house built into the hillside of a Waikato (New Zealand) farm. The house is cleverly constructed to resemble a cave. With no electricity in the house, the stone, wood and rustic features truly make you feel like you’re stepping back in time.
Everything inside this tiny cave house has been expertly crafted out of high quality materials. The end result is a beautiful, cosy home that is filled with rustic charm. The round table in the centre of the house creates a fantastic area for entertaining and socialising.
A sturdy country-style kitchen adds even more character to the home, whilst also being fully functional. The cupboards are all made out of heavy duty macrocarpa and the iron-work is all custom made.
On cold nights the antique coal range becomes the focus of the home. The range is responsible not only for space heating, but is also acts as a stove oven, and heats water for the house.
There sleeping area is just beautiful. The custom made bed is an unusual shape, but wonderfully comfortable. A skylight above the bed has been cleverly fashioned out of an old car windscreen allowing you to watch the stars above you at night.
