Architect: Unknown (1910s), Robin Boyd (1962)

* Not open to the public, this building is open to design professionals only.

Known to few, Linden House is Robin Boyd’s only work in Tasmania. Almost 60 years ago, the architect extensively re-imagined a early 20th-century red stucco farmhouse into a masterful composition of timeless elegance and simplicity. The dwelling – sited just fifty metres from the River Derwent near Plenty – is remarkably intact some six decades later and features a magnificent glazed pavilion.

The somewhat forgotten building was recently featured in an article written by Tim Hurburgh from H20 Architects in the April 2021 Houses magazine and the Modernist masterpiece and is well worth the drive!

Open: 10 am – 4 pm

* Not open to the public, this building is open to design professionals only. 454 Glenora Road, Plenty TAS.
