Formed concrete gives the exterior a modern edge.

Bellarine Property, Barwon Heads agent Lee Martin said there weren’t many comparable houses in the area, where top sales tend to be on larger acreage.

He put the premium 4955sq m lifestyle property into a similar category to homes in Ocean Grove’s Yellow Gums Estate.

All the bedrooms have walk-in wardrobes.

“We always had faith that it would sell at this level,” Mr Martin said.

“It’s a new precedent for Drysdale.”

The house is designed around a central living zone with raked ceilings, a two-way wood fire and large sliding doors onto a north-facing outdoor entertainment area with a firepit.

There’s also a one-bedroom self-contained guesthouse, ideal for family or a holiday rental.

“There have been some homes that were just a bit more conventional and (the buyers) were looking for something a bit more bold,” Mr Martin said.
