When the recipient of the Building of the Year 2015 award is announced, you can expect it to be something quite breathtaking.
Located in Port Douglas, Queensland, Australia, ‘The Edge’ – a stunning contemporary concept which was the dutiful winner of the inaugural award- surpasses expectation and stands as a truly remarkable feat in modern architecture.
Seemingly the idyllic setting of the Coral Sea adds a picturesque element to the structure, but it is the dynamic, modern components that delightfully juxtaposes the concrete aesthetic and the rich tropical landscape which make it so iconic.
However, the Edge House is seemingly the gift that keeps on giving, as venturing inside is where the home continues to surprise. The biggest and best kept secret within the house is undoubtedly the imposing master bedroom, which boasts complimenting his and her walk-in dressing rooms and bathrooms alongside a large, concrete cantilever that anchors the granite day bed with a balcony beside a 10 metre infinity pool.
Elsewhere, the minimalist interior continues in to the luxury kitchen which comes equipped with granite countertops and innovative appliances including a wine fridge, two large sweeping sinks and a butler’s pantry. Adventuring around the enchanting interior also opens up in to a completely open-plan lounge with built-in fireplace, a double-station study with a secluded guest room including customary walk-in wardrobes and en suite.
Outside, a pristinely maintained backyard features a built-in BBQ that will serve food amongst the iconic Australian backdrop and is appeased with a large deck that contains an al fresco granite dining table that seats up to 8 guests.
The house that provides both style and substance is remarkably now up for sale, currently listed for $6.5 million Australian Dollars. Find out more over on the Raine & Horne Website.
