    Behind the door of an unassuming cottage in rural Tasmania lies magnificent ocean views that serve as the perfect backdrop for weekend getaways.

    Built into a hillside in the town of Rocky Hills on Tasmania’s east coast, 90km north of Hobart, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow is fitted with enormous floor-to-ceiling windows which offer unrestricted views of Great Oyster Bay and the Tasman Sea.

    The striking stone front is made from locally sourced materials like burnt spotted gum and Zincalume, a blend of metals which protects the house from wild weather conditions, with sub-zero temperatures in winter and blistering heat over 40 degrees in summer.

    Elevated on steel stilts, the back of the 129sqm bungalow houses a spacious living room that looks directly across to Freycinet National Park, home to iconic Wineglass Bay and the Hazards mountain range, two of Tasmania’s leading attractions.

    Inside, the open-plan living room is bright and airy thanks to towering vaulted ceilings and vast windows, which frame the glowing sunrise emerging over the sea every morning.

    The kitchen is fitted with Tasmanian oak floors, custom black benchtops and a white, tiled splash back, which create a modern, minimalist feel to the space.

    A serving hatch opens out onto a large sun deck, perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining, allowing food to be delivered from kitchen to terrace in a matter of seconds.

    The master bedroom opens out onto its own balcony, which provides a different perspective over the ocean and rugged surrounding countryside.

    Even the bathrooms bring a sense of the outdoor inside through narrow rectangular windows looking directly onto lush green forest.

    Insulation, double-glazed windows and an air conditioning unit keep the house at a perfect temperature all year round.

    Roberts Real Estate agent Paul Whytecross, who is overseeing the sale of the property, said Rocky Hills is a popular destination for holiday homes and permanent residences alike.

    The hillside bungalow is just a few minutes walk from a small, secluded beach, where swimming, sunbathing and water sports can be enjoyed during summer months.

    It sits in the centre of 6.5 acres where there is scope to build another property, subject to planning permission.

    The Rocky Hills stone bungalow is currently on the market, with offers over $900,000 being considered.
