250 Sq. Ft. Tardis Tiny Tower House in Australia

This is the 250 sq. ft. Tardis Tiny Tower House in Fitzroy North, VIC, Australia.

Designed and renovated by local architects, craftsmen and builders, this unique ‘small wonder’ with vertical proportions has a ladder that accesses the upper living floor via a hatch which lifts up. This ply stairway is also the sloping, sliding door to the tiny bathroom – with a shower, toilet and hand basin. In the studio, the double bed slides away under the utilities bench – housing a bar fridge, sink, electric jug, cupboards and shelves. A craftsman’s unique clothes rail is there for your clothes and a number of power points are in the room. The octagonal room’s large windows can have the light shading cellular blinds (insulating) set to allow as much light as you like. The decking outside the studio, sheltered by a big gum tree, is an ideal spot to sit before heading out or coming ‘home’. During the day you may enjoy the sound of chooks below (no – no crowing rooster!) as well as birds in the trees. You may be greeted by my friendly dog Minnie a Foxy/Jack Russell.

Yes! You can rent a stay in this one-of-a-kind tiny tower cabin in Australia using Airbnb. For now please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Those stairs are a deal breaker. I know that I would be brain dead after a couple of times hitting my head, or end up with lots of broken bones from falling off. Who builds stairs like that? It looks like it takes up room in the bathroom, or at least makes it a maze to walk around.

    I am curious as to why those stairs/ladder are needed when there are perfectly good stairs on the outside of the unit. Otherwise it is an interesting unit. I suppose in inclement weather you might not want to go outside to get to the bathroom, but, as said above — those stairs are a deal breaker — would think they could have come up with a better configuration. Like the patio area and decks.

    plywood that gets wet does delaminate so I would not use it around a sink or a shower. the inside stairs scare me. I do like the cupola design.

    What exactly is that extra room for…a dressing room? What a waste of space in the design. I would get bored with the place very quickly as it’s way too small.

    TARDIS? But… it’s not BLUE! 🙁

    Looks like AmyCat and I were the only people actually expecting to see a tiny house that looked like a blue police phone booth from England. I’m a bit disappointed. (Number 10 is my favorite ?)

    I found it too bare on the inside. But the outside looks okay.
    Not much to say about it! Sorry!

      That, too… No books, no interesting control console… no mad 900+-year-old alien running things… 🙁

        And it doesn’t look bigger on the inside 😉

          If it had The Doctor in residence, I’d forgive it not being blue or “bigger on the inside”… ?
          Which is YOUR Doctor? Mine is Tom Baker (showing my age here?), and David Tennant’s my fave of the “reboot” Doctors…

    I’m with AmyCat and Jean. I opened the link just to see the Tardis Blue house…darn it! It’s cute though. ?

    I actually appreciate this little space. It’s different, light and airy, and has some clever design features. I’m 50 but those stairs don’t scare me. Add a little non-slip material to them and you’re golden.

    AmyCat – I couldn’t find a reply button so I’m just posting again.
    I started watching Dr Who with the reboot just as Eccleston was about to regenerate. #10 – David Tennant – is my absolute favorite! I did enjoy Matt with Amy and Rory, but I still love David and Rose, Martha and Donna Noble.
