FERN TREE HOUSE
677 Huon Road, Fern Tree, TAS
Architect: David McGlashan
The Canning family commissioned architect David McGlashan to design them a family home at Fern Tree after the original house on the site was lost in the 1967 Black Tuesday bush fires.
The house consists of three adjoined pavilions stepped down the sloping site and in common with other McGlashan and Everist houses, uses minimal and natural materials. The floor to ceiling glazing affords each room its own relationship to a different aspect of the surrounding gardens. Elements in the design and construction are shared in common with other McGlashan Everist houses, such as Heide II and Grimwade House in Victoria.
