This Esmond Dorney-designed riverside house was positioned to provide sweeping views towards Bellerive Beach, the harbour, western shore and mountain. Its unique form and curved roofline merges with the hills, eucalypts and she oaks of its setting. The floating aesthetic is established by the deep eaves, which shade and protect the wall and glazing. Lovingly restored and respectfully extended by its current owner and custodian Carol, this home is a midcentury modern delight with many stories to tell.
