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.

Great location, great views and very comfortable house
Perfect location and beautiful house and views
My husband and I stayed at Anagama with our two West Highland Terriers for four nights over winter, and could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay. The House is spacious and clean, set in a picturesque rural setting and located within a short drive to Denmark Town Centre. We were welcomed by Jonathan who had the fire place going, and stayed briefly to show us around The House. Throughout our stay, Jonathan was the perfect host; he made sure there was always dry fire wood, was always answerable by phone when we needed something and was very accommodating when I needed a later check out. Jonathan has impeccable taste which shows in the furnishing and styling of The House. The House is equipped with all the basics for a kitchen and the property was of a size that our dogs were able to go for decent leaded walks daily. There is also a dog friendly park close to Town which we took the dogs to.
Thank you Jonathan for making our first stay in Denmark relaxing and enjoyable. I will most definitely stay at The House again when I return to Denmark.
Exceptional Home in the Hills
We were completely overwhelmed by the wonderful quality of this home. Laden with quality art, it was warm and appealing and very luxurious. The kitchen was beautifully appointed, the living areas were comfortable with new furnishings, and the bedrooms were all beautifully presented with quality bedding. The landscaped gardens were lovely and the views to the fields below stunning! The best holiday rental we've ever stayed in.
Thank you so much, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Waking up every morning with the birds chirping & the kangaroos in view over the sweeping hills was lovely. The home is so stylish & homely at the same time with the rammed earth & wooden floors. The gorgeous ceramic art work & paintings added to the beautiful style of this home. The peaceful garden added another layer to the sweeping views of the valley. There was nothing else we could have asked for... we'll be back again soon! Francesca
Beautiful place to stay!
The views were amazing. Everything you need is there. Was a relaxing place to be after a busy day out and about.
