Some of us find our dream home in the small urban apartment that serves as a simple escape and a place to rest and relax in between all the hard work and partying. Others might prefer a magical escape that is nestled in the heart of unadulterated natural beauty and then there are those who are willing to take up the challenge of renovating an old discarded structure into a new house.
With a rugged coastline on one side that sees arguably some of the roughest weather on the planet and a beautiful forest on the other the cabin is perfectly placed to make the most of the amazing views on offer.
