An award-winning luxury home on Port Douglas’s highest peak has gone on the market for a cool $7.4 million. The 555-square-metre single-level home located at the northern tip of Port Douglas was designed by Charles Wright Architects and although has only two bedrooms and four bathrooms, it is definitely amongst the most eye-catching. Most of the interior is completely open with the dining, kitchen and living areas all located in a single room overlooking the ocean.
At the very edge of the house is a 10-metre infinity pool unlike any other we’ve laid eyes on.
The Edge received a regional commendation by the Australian Institute of Architects in its 2015 awards, now up for Queensland home of the year, designed like an outdoor shell with cantilevered roof. It won the 2015 Queensland Architecture Awards, Eddie Oribin Award for Building of the Year, FNQ Region.
“This house is an impressive response to a difficult site. The robust shell-like concrete envelope gives the client privacy and frames the panoramic view. Raw materials and the angular form, which projects the living areas over the hillside, create a commanding presence for the building,” the jury said.
The owner of the stylish abode is selling to move closer to her family.
