See the Bay and well beyond from a Max Pritchard home ahead of its time



See the Bay and well beyond from a Max Pritchard home ahead of its time…

Inspired by the rugged coastal landscape at its feet and the vast ocean it looks over, this isn’t just proof that iconic South Australian architect Max Pritchard was at the top of his game when this two-level masterpiece was conceived.

No, this is also a treasure of South Australian architecture.

The brief to Max was simple: work your magic to design a contemporary home to maximize the views from its elevated position.

What the world got is a 4-bedroom home ahead of its time, with the supreme functionality that stands up to today’s demands — and Australia’s often-harsh natural environment.

Rather than retreat into that environment, this light-filled home stands out thanks to its striking white facade, softened by its unique curvatures, and cooled by its saltwater pool and passive design principles.

Aesthetics aside, those curves serve a purpose, particularly where the main living zone/kitchen of the upper level forges a circular sea of glass to impart a magical 180-degree view stretching over the bay, to Port Elliot, Goolwa, The Coorong and back again. 

In fact, almost every space in this ultra-flexible home — inside and out — has an aspect to savor, whether a pond garden, Granite Island, West Island or the fruit trees, vegetables and flowers that call home to the very valuable second title.

Whether it’s a floorplan that makes the master suite the sole bedroom on the upper floor or the double garage, huge underground water tank and the way overhead screening welcomes the winter sun and whisks it away in the summer, Max Pritchard thought of everything.

And it’s a beautiful thing.

More to love:


-    The house is adored by its one and only owner.

-    Second title with potential to do whatever you wish, build a shed or second house if you desire

-    Flexible floor plan includes kitchen/dining, terrace and living zone — each with an ocean view

-    Studio/music room opens to entertainer’s courtyard on the lower floor, with a wood fired oven and charcoal grill

-    Walk-in robe and ensuite to master wing

-    Stylish, super-functional kitchen with double dishwasher, gas cooking and its own heating/cooling system

-    20,000 gallon underground rainwater tank connected to the house

-    Beautifully presented gardens with auto watering system, herb/veggie gardens and orchard
