Car nut Cherise Collins gave architect Damian Campagnaro a simple brief for this amazing one-bedroom house in the Adelaide Hills – she wanted someone to park her vintage 356 Porsche “in my favourite room, the garage”.

“I did want a house where you could drive into the middle of the house,” she said on the ABC series Dream Build.

The house, which echoes the curving classic lines and colour of her white sports car, is on the market for the first time since it was built in 2012, with agent LJ Hooker estimating the price at between $890,000 and $950,000.

Beneath its apparent simplicity – there are no doors in the house – is some complex engineering that anchors the building to a steep slope amid the tree canopy looking out over Adelaide city.

Expressions of Interest on the property are open until May 22. The details are here.
