The last time we saw this one-of-a-kind Dutch home, it was the coolest half-buried snow villa in all the land. Fast forward some years and “Dutch Mountain House,” the brainchild of architect and art historian couple Sanne Oomen and Lucas Mol, has hit the market (price upon request). And with the listing comes a closer look at the property, which looks pretty darn good covered in greenery, too.

Completed in 2011 as self-sustaining, living work of art, the 3,444-square-foot home features a soaring living area atrium with glass walls covering the whole garden-facing side. Next to come into view are of course the owners’ eccentric collection of custom furniture and decor—much of which, including the Daimler vintage car turned vertical shelving, is included in the sale. (Can we also talk about the surreal kitchen cabinet mélange and the mismatched headboard and footboard in the bedroom?)

Adding to the magic of the property, which sits on 1.6 verdant acres in the Gooi Nature Reserve near Amsterdam, are the bantam hens, foxes, owls, and other wildlife roaming about. Have a look below.
