Yabba dabba don't. The primitive Sydney outskirts offering - an open air stone cottage on 16 hectares at Glenorie - has been withdrawn from sale.

Buyer's baulked at the asking price, so the owner has decided to keep their long-time Flintstonesesque offering.

Under its thatched roof, there is shelter with no floor, door or windows. Some stone lounges and benches, but no bathroom. The kitchen comes simply with fireplace.

Its listing agent Ian Campbell from Ray White Elizabeth Bay described the Smallwood Road property as just one step up from camping.

He took over the listing which had begun in May last year with $668,000 hopes.

Offers above $500,000 were being initially sought by Campbell, then more recently adjusted to $450,000 plus, until its recent withdrawal.

Purchased more than 30 years ago by the Moriceau family, 411-469 Smallwood Road, Glenorie, served as a weekend escape.

It last traded in 1977 at $13,000.
