Architecturally designed and built by well-known architect Steve Grieve and his wife Christine, the home was created and built to maximise the relationship with the wonderful landscape.

This incredible home, just 8 years young, features:
A large open plan dining/family room opening to 2 huge decks – one facing the dunes, the other overlooking Goolwa and the Murray
A gourmet’s kitchen with a 1200 mm gas stove, dishwasher, loads of pantry and bench space opening to the living area.
Four cavernous bedrooms , 3 with built in wardrobes – the fourth able to be converted to an extra living room if required.
A superb downstairs billiard/play room

Sustainable principles of the home include a cement slab taking advantage of the thermal mass of the ground, collection of rainwater from the entire roof into some 20,000 litres of storage, low embodied energy construction including timber framing, Solomon Islands Plantation Teak cladding, excellent insulation, light coloured roofing, and minimal use of external materials with coatings. There is excellent cross ventilations, and the house orientated to make the most of the sun’s movement.
The beach house is so well positioned directly on the magnificent Goolwa Beach dunes, the South Lakes Golf Club over the road, and the mighty Murray for other aquatic fun is so close by! It is about half way in between Bombora Café on the beach, and Bombora Café on the on the river…..what a choice!
