An Unconventional House and Ultimate Hideaway


Described as a local landmark, this property was built and handcrafted by ex-potter Bruce Davidson. When he arrived he was the only person in the valley. He came for peace and quiet, to play his classical music and to enjoy the solitude of the bush. People came from near and far to see Bruce’s creation. He taught many people the art of building from mud, and helped others in their creative efforts. He was one of the first in the district to build from slate which abounds from the goldfields days.

A unique and beautiful two-storeyed, slate and timber, alternative lifestyle home, this home won a major prize in a nation wide ‘Home of the Year’ competition run by Home Beautiful magazine. It has been described as an inventive masterpiece, breathtaking and fascinating. One of a kind, this is a home crammed with imagination and invention, with rich stories to tell and memories to share.

This Barker’s Creek house, with very special features is a house with a story to tell, is a home to be cherished.
