ABOUT THE PROPERTY
Anagama Denmark was designed and built by ceramic artist Jonathan Hook in the 1980s and 1990s, incorporating traditional Japanese farmhouse style and the use of local timbers as highlights throughout the house.
The property offers two accommodation options, which are listed separately but can be hired together pending availability:
• Anagama Denmark - The House (Property #200809): The main house on the property, which sleeps up to six (6) people.
• Anagama Denmark - The Studio (Property #202289): A stylish 135 square metre, self-contained studio space, which sleeps up to two (2) adults. A small child can also be accommodated if required.
This listing is for The House.
The property offers a tranquil country-style stay, situated just outside of town on an 11 hectare farm with Jarrah / Karri forest near the crest of a north facing hill and valley which is protected from cold southerly winds. Anagama has stunning, ever-changing views across the Scotsdale and Denmark River valleys to Mt Lindsay, is located just minutes by car from Denmark town centre - also within walking distance - and is situated close to the well-known wineries and restaurants of the Scotsdale Valley and Scotsdale Tourist Drive.
Anagama Denmark offers the perfect escape for couples or families seeking quiet solace and rejuvenation, or as the perfect base to explore Denmark's coastal beaches and hinterland, Albany, and the Stirling and Porongorup Ranges.
The property derives its name from the large Japanese/Korean style wood fired pottery kiln situated adjacent to house, which was built by Jonathan Hook and used for pottery production in the early 1980s. The kiln is no longer in use, but is still a fascinating insight into the artistic process and science involved with ceramics. Pottery wares from this style of kiln are highly prized around the world.
Please be aware that this is a duplex property, and both listings may be rented to different guests at the same time. The House and The Studio are connected by a common wall and share some communal outdoor spaces, but are configured to allow total privacy and exclusion from one another.
