The home's extraordinarily distinctive Australian architecture and its magnificent harbour-front position on the sandy shore of Kutti beach raise it above many other great homes.

When you drive past the front gate of the property, it does not scream 'look at me, look at me'.

In fact, from the street, you have absolutely no inkling of the size, quality and immense appeal of the house, for you see little apart from its roof.

But when viewed from the water, it is immediately apparent that this residence is a natural supermodel when compared with other houses (of more mainstream architectural design) fronting the prestigious and incredibly expensive Kutti beach strip.

Architect Graham Jahn's design divides this beachfront property into summer and winter living spaces.

The two zones are linked by a bridge crossing pools and courtyards which forms a "transition zone" that "captures sunlight and provides one of many private relaxing getaways".

A combination of two pavilions - the back one spanning three levels, the one at the front on two levels - this magnificent house was built with no expense spared: every architectural element is bespoke; the architecture takes full advantage of the due-north aspect; and both pavilions have beautiful harbour views.

The house itself has 650sqm of living space and has a Northerly aspect but is sheltered from prevailing winds.

There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms over three levels.

In the harbour-front garden is a circa-1920s cedar boathouse fitted out for laid-back entertainment with a bar, kitchenette, movie projector and screen.

The property has lawns and landscaped gardens, is 1,200sqm, has garage space for two cars and includes the sandy beach on the title.

The grounds include sunlit terraces, courtyards, pergolas, lawns, entertaining options, ponds, pools and with the landscaping irrigated by rainwater.

There is also Protected from the nor'easter by Green Point Reserve, Kutti beach has clean, white sand, clear water, a north aspect and views across the natural landscape of the western harbour foreshore,'.

A restored cedar boat-house provides more entertaining space on the waterfront.
