A SHOWSTOPPING builder’s own home on the Bellarine Peninsula sets a new benchmark for modern architectural design in the area.
The custom house from Riverview Building Solutions displays impressive craftsmanship with features such recycled beams salvaged from the Glenmaggie Bridge and a formed concrete and silvertop ash facade.
Bellarine Property, Barwon Heads agent Lee Martin said there was nothing in Drysdale to rival its quality finishes and attention to detail.

“It’s at a level that we have not seen every in Drysdale,” Mr Martin said.
“While we have had $2 million and $3 million sales they were big lifestyle properties with views.”
Melbourne architects Clarke Hopkins Clarke designed the custom residence at 13-17 Lauriston Lane, which was completed about 18 months ago.
It’s been listed with price hopes of $1.75 million to $1.925 million.
A 4955sq m block affords plenty of space for the house’s three wings and a separate guesthouse that could provide an income stream from holiday letting.
Mr Martin likened arriving at the house as similar to pulling up outside the RACV Torquay Resort with a long wall of concrete formwork creating a memorable first impression.
No expense has been spared in fitting out the interior with wormy chestnut hardwood flooring, 3m square set ceilings and double glazed windows.
The central wing forms the main living zone where a high-end kitchen presides over an open-plan dining and lounge area that flows out to a large deck.
The kitchen has three NEFF ovens, a Highland gas hob, dual dishwashers and sinks, Blum fittings and a butler’s pantry.
A glazed room divider separates the main loungeroom from another living area that sits opposite a home office.
There are four bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes in the sleeping wing, with a luxury ensuite servicing the main.
The final wing contains a rumpus room and oversized double garage.
