Inside the 'Grass House': Tiny 'hairy' home in a suburban street hides two modern bedrooms, a chic bathroom and a VERY spacious kitchen

  • The Grass House is quickly becoming one of the most talked about homes in North Fitzroy, Melbourne
  • The two-bedroom marvel is coated in thick shrubs because there is very little room to have a garden there
  • It has a creative two-level floor plan with plenty of windows to take in the green scenery from outside
  • Stainless steel benchtops are a feature in the kitchen with timber furniture offsetting the industrial look

A tiny home the 'Grass House' has wowed with its spectacular display of shrubs and plant life across its exterior.

The home, nestled in the inner-city Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy North, also boasts an abundance of natural light, timber furnishings, two bedrooms and a very modern bathroom, all spread across just two floors.

While the grassy exterior might seem like high maintenance, the nature-filled facade is actually attached to an automated water system connected to water tanks.

Mr Luck built the two oversized bedrooms on the bottom floor beside the tiled bathroom, which includes a fantastic rainforest-style shower head for times when you need to wash away the day.

But those wanting to be closer to the city center will also be interested in the north-facing home.
