Modern Small House in Australia

This modern small house that was for sale is in Victoria, Australia back in 2015. The first thing you’ll probably notice is the sleek and modern slanted roof, right? Once you step inside you’ll find a very open space with plenty of natural light because of the large windows throughout the main living area.

This modern small home boasts two bedrooms, one bathroom, an amazing kitchen, a large open living space, and a cozy covered outdoor space. It also features a separate garage/storage. This isn’t a tiny house, but it’s a pretty cool small home, isn’t it? And it’s definitely no McMansion so I thought you might be able to get some inspiration from it. Please enjoy and if you like it re-share below with your friends. Thanks.

    .. $400,000 in Geelong .. looks nice but a scary price ..

      Because it’s near Melbourne that’s why. It’s all in the cost of the land. Not that I’d want to live there as I live in Queensland. Even where I live near the beach the land now costs a small fortune so I hope to sell my place for one and move out to acreage into a small place and add some tiny places for the rest of the family, a little family village you might say if I can get around the council rules.

    400,000?! In Australia? Why?

      Why? Because!

      OK, the long version then… in Australia, as in New Zealand and most of the world for that matter, people get paid a (relative) living wage. And, income tax is taken out by the employer on the amount that they have earned at the appropriate rate so that there is no mad scramble to try and find the money at the end of the financial year. Like in the US.

      Minimum wage in Australia is far higher than in the US. For example, for a McDonald’s worker minimum wage in US (average) is $7.25 per hour. In Australia that same worker would get minimum wage of $16 per hour. In Australia they don’t have agricultural workers, usually undocumented in US, working for $1 an hour, thereby artificially keeping food prices low.

      People pay higher tax rates too. Helps to pay for free hospital care, and generally free or very cheap, doctor visits. Introduced by the Government in their last budget, doctor visits went form $zero to $10.

      Plus, Australian dollar is not on a par with US dollars either.

      These young lady (if you’re under 95 your young) are just the tip of the iceberg for reasons why it is more expensive.

        McDonald’s is currently paying about $9.00 per hour and soon to be $10.00 per hour by the end of the year. Not much more but every little bit helps.

    Looked at the website and the printable brochure, couldn’t find square footage. Any info?

      Good question? More vacant land here than any other place in the world (cept the poles) Its all to do with how much land the government releases and the zoning. I other words- a scam.

      • Eric

        And a goodly proportion of that vacant land you talk about is some of the most inhospitable desert zones in the world. So, not so much land available, for scamming or otherwise, as you would think.

          Yes true; but a huge portion isnt in-hospitable desert. Get a map and look at the distances between towns.

    Too costly. Too hot. Too dry. Spiders are as big as plates.

      dont forget the king browns, taipans, killer koalas, hoop snakes, blue ring octopus, box jellyfish, saltwater crocs and worst of all all the yobbo’s

      • Eric
        February 18, 2016, 3:41 am

        …and yobbo’s is shorthand for evil, toad faced politicians.
