The Australians seem to have some of the most stunning houses, especially this one by Fox Johnston Architects. The house combines beautiful wood flooring with large sliding glass doors and windows. The main living, sleeping and entertaining areas are contained in the long linear west wing of the house (seen in the first few pictures). The east wing encloses a living space that serves the barbecue and pool deck, with a separate bedroom and bathroom above. Another cool thing about this house is that there is a long pool that cuts across the building through the entrance hall.
