Treetops Home In Australia Is The Perfect Combination Of Rustic And Modern Design (PHOTOS)

When we first heard about the treetops home in Australia from our friends at Decoist, we thought we were going to see a cool albeit typical treehouse -- but we were so very wrong.

Designed by architect Bruce Rickard, the treetops home isn't exactly built into the trees, but rather designed on top of an old cottage with timber columns and trusses. Inside, you'll find a rustic but modern space with large windows, exposed beams along the ceiling and four luxurious bedrooms. Of course, the view of nature and the killer swimming pool are just the icing on this perfectly stylish abode.

Scroll through to see photos of this amazing place, and be sure to head over to the Decoist for more information.
