The 2020 HIA–CSR Australian Home of the Year is on the market

An award-winning designer home located in the prestigious suburb of Sanctuary Cove just landed on the market.
“The Cove House” is an exquisitely unique timber-clad and tropical home on the Gold Coast.
It is a sophisticated nod to brutalist architecture and tropical modernism, masterfully crafted with an extraordinary level of customised detail.
Owner Tracey Morland engaged her cousin, architect Justin Humphrey, to design this striking subtropical home that subverts the concept of alfresco living by blurring the boundaries between indoors and out.

The riverfront home at 7366 Marine Drive was built in 2018 by BJ Millar Constructions.
The property includes a large master bedroom and ensuite, two guest bedrooms – each with a bathroom – and a home office.

A powerful mix of textured off-form concrete walls and stone finishes are paired with expertly wrought timber trimmings, notably the individually made wooden battens that curve around the exterior and transfer indoors to zone the private and public rooms.

The charcoal hued kitchen, including a hidden wine cellar, dominates the length of the home before advancing onto an amenity-filled outdoor entertaining terrace. This vibrant space offers a barbeque, built-in fireplace, sunken lounge and pool for the homeowners to enjoy while overlooking Sanctuary Cove’s Coomera River.

With submerged rainwater tank beneath the driveway, 15kW solar PV and three Tesla energy storage batteries, this magical home practically exist off the grid.
Number 7366 Marine Drive East has surpassed the highest standards in workmanship and pushed the boundaries with design and innovation.
