Perched on the dramatic hillside of Lorne, boasting expansive ocean views framed by native gumtrees, the Big Hill House is a seaside retreat.
Set high above the endless expanse of Bass Strait, on Victoria’s famous Great Ocean Road, every detail in this 1000 sqm zinc-cladded home has been meticulously planned and crafted over three generous levels.
Stepping inside is an equally awe-inspiring space, with European Oak complimented against concrete, providing this home a contemporary feel.
The long dramatic hallway flows through to a light-filled open-plan, modern kitchen, living and dining area. The interiors, designed by Louisa Roth, are contemporary and refined. Designed and built for one of Australia’s most renowned Chefs see the kitchen as a culinary haven.
The master bedroom sits at the highest point of the house and opens itself up to a 360 ̊ uninterrupted panoramic views of ocean and bushland, and features a the French-designed Mezzo Focus fireplace, private balcony, large walk in dressing room and extravagant bathrooms with a rain shower.
Sustainability in this home was paramount, with a hybrid energy system featuring a 24kW solar/Tesla and two heat exchange pumps, as well as hydronic floor heating throughout. Maintaining a low-carbon footprint, the home is 100% rainwater fed and built to one of the highest bushfire ratings, BAL 29.
Inside features a 25m indoor swimming pool, gym, sauna and generous living spaces and an east-facing yoga deck sits amidst the native gardens, designed by Phillip Johnson Landscapes.
