A tiny house with a big heart is for sale in an off-grid part of Warburton.

Pint-sized property Womblebank, right beside Four Mile Creek at 8 Prospect Avenue, is for sale with a $300,000-$330,000 price tag.

Surrounded by picture-perfect gardens on an 800sq m block, the property has been used as short-stay accommodation after it was fitted-out by the owners, Julie Wilson and Anna Sharpley.

These incredible gardens are part of the package.

They passionately sourced handcrafted Indian mango wood for the floorboards, a customised futon from Catlemaine and top-quality French sheets for the small space.

A full-sized shower, caravan-style toilet and a kitchen with timber benches are all part of the package. A bedroom upstairs is too small to stand in, but is wide enough to sleep three people.

Beyond the house, native gardens are brimming with vegie patches, an orchard, fire pit, water features, statues from Bali and incredible mountain views.

The owners completely fitted out the tiny house.

“We always had this vision of doing up the gardens with fruit trees, vegetable patches and chooks,” Ms Wilson said.

“It helps make the whole thing an experience, not just staying in the tiny house.”

Ms Wilson said the property had been “fully booked” between Melbourne’s coronavirus lockdowns.

A kitchen with timber benchtops.

No standing in the bedroom.

Her own home next door at No. 10 is also up for private sale with a $580,000-$620,000 price guide.

Professionals Yarra Junction director Ashleigh Hall said some interested buyers would consider buying both blocks together.

10 Prospect Ave, Warburton is also for sale.

Larger living on offer here.

“The tiny house hasn’t got a permit as a dwelling, so it’s only good to stay in temporarily,” Mr Hall said.

“But you’re buying your own little city escape in a beautiful spot right near La La Falls.”

The off-grid street does not have sewerage, but the tiny house can be connected to the main power and water lines at a buyer’s request.

Chickens living at the block can also remain at the property, which is for private sale.
