Written by: Adam Williams / Publish Date: 11 October 2017
The small living movement tends to be all about sacrifices and compromises – there’s only so much that can be done with such limited space, after all. That said, those with the means to spend some extra money can look forward to improved amenities, high-end materials, and gadgets a-plenty in their tiny house. Join us as we take a look at the best new luxury tiny houses on the market.
As was the case in our look at the market back in February, we’ve focused on high-end tiny houses that cost over US$70,000 and include outstanding features, interesting design, or notable technology. We’ve also highlighted firms we’re familiar with, but do urge readers to carry out their own research if considering splashing hard-earned cash on one of these. All except one are based in the USA (the other is in New Zealand).
Head to the gallery to see more images and information on each home or read on for our selection of the best new luxury tiny houses currently on the market.
Escher – New Frontier Tiny Homes
Nashville-based New Frontier Tiny Homes’ Alpha was one of the most notable tiny houses of 2016 and its successor looks similarly impressive. Based on the same basic design as the Alpha, the Escher increases living space and adds a second bedroom to make it suitable for a family of three.
The Escher‘s large sliding glass doors and novel garage-like door open the home to the outside. Its interior measures 300 sq ft (27.8 sq m) and includes a living/dining area with stow-away table that seats a dozen people. The kitchen looks high-end and boasts porcelain countertops, a mini-dishwasher, and stainless steel appliances.
There’s one bedroom downstairs in the Escher and another upstairs, plus a home office and a bathroom with shower, sink, composting toilet, and a large walk-in closet.
The Escher can run on or off-the-grid and will set you back $139,900 and up, depending on options chosen.
