A home for sale in Victoria is like a work of art with its daring design.

The five-bedroom, three-bathroom property at 160 Old Healesville Road in Tarrawarra defies gravity with its cantilevered minimalist architecture.

Listing photos show two steel and glass beams placed on top of one another. The upper beam is anchored at one end and free at the other, making it appear as if it’s balancing.

The unique abode has a price guide of $13.5 million to $14.85 million.

Called View Hill, the property is designed by architect John Denton and is a remarkable example of cantilevered minimalist architecture, a design trend that was originally used in bridge construction and has quickly made its way into high-end contemporary design.

Set on approximately 60 hectares, the property is described on the listing as a “timeless masterpiece of contemporary art”.

The home is surrounded by vineyards on the edge of Yarra Glen and has an interior aesthetic that rivals an international art gallery.

Listing photos reveal an open-plan layout, polished concrete floors, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and statement pendant lights.

The bedrooms can be found in the eastern wing, separating them from the main living zones, and two offices, a powder room and wine room are on the upper level.

Tarrawarra is in the Shire of Yarra Ranges in Victoria, 45km north-east of Melbourne’s CBD.

The property is on the books of Tom Barr Smith and Sasha Romensky of Kay & Burton Flinders in conjunction with Stephen Strachan of Langley & Co Advisors.

Agents are taking expressions of interest until 3pm on December 6.
