Modern Australian Outback Beach House

If I lived in the Australian Outback, I'd want to live in a house like this. Designed by Melbourne-based architectural practice BKK, the Corinella House is a 220 acre sheep farm that sits on a peninsula in Victoria, Australia's Weternport Bay. The home overlooks mangrove trees and sand flats, and provides residents with beautiful views of the ocean.

The four bedroom, three bathroom house features two living rooms and a full kitchen, with polished floors throughout. A modern fireplace is built flush into the living room wall, next to the slot for firewood. Almost every room features the kind of huge windows that don't let residents forget about the striking beauty that surrounds them outside.

From a distance, the home looks like a sloped extension of the exterior that surrounds it, which gives it an organic feel. Even though I think the designers could have made some changes to the furniture to make the interior a bit warmer, I really love the architectural frame of the house, even more so because of its location.
