Take 2 professional athletes, one a prized gold medallist and 5 time Olympian, and turn their combined focus and creative flair from winter sport to designing and building a luxury summer home by the sea.
Welcome to Scandi House.
In a beautiful combination of innovative design, luxury amenities and Nordic flair, Scandi House goes well beyond what we have come to expect from a modern beach home. The attention to detail alone is as elite as its creators. Polished concrete floors, feature stone and rendered walls are softened by English Oak, warm lighting and natural styling. There is no hiding a sense of alpine about the home, making it just as indulging sitting by the warm woodfire as it is basking alfresco in the sun.
Set across 3 storeys, the upper floor offers street level entry to the main living area. While the inspiring elevated ocean views are clearly a focal point, so are the soaring ceilings and natural light. Lounge, dining and kitchen all feature impressive soft furnishings and undeniable character. Grounding the room and indeed heating the whole home via thermal mass is a central fireplace with double sided fireplace. To the rear is a fully ensuited guest bedroom - but not the master, this stunning room is yet to come.
Descending to the mid level finds a cosy second living space with lounge. A kids room decked with bunks, an additional bedroom with a queen bed and the master bedroom flank this space along with an office and main bathroom. As if that's not enough, just imagine yourself unwinding in a stunning Finnish style Sauna with world class views of the ocean and the iconic Lorne Pier. When you feel the sweat starting to bead, waltz outside for a dip in the infinity plunge pool, and be sure to check on the kids bouncing away on the inground trampoline. Now is around the time you ask yourself, does life get any better?
To list all the features of such a wonderful home would be both exhausting and somewhat a spoiler for the things you can explore for yourself.

What a beautiful and serene space. An amazing home away from home. All the creature comforts you could ask for with plenty of WOW 🤩. The property is new and elevated with gorgeous views. Pool, sauna and gym were an added bonus. The experience is better than the photos depict 😍
Could’ve been betterRaul Izsak - 8th February 2023
Can’t complain much about the place. The location is amazing, the view you have everyday is awesome. The only things I would complain about is that some places were not properly cleaned, couches are a bit dirty, the audio system is not working at all. The 3rd shower in one of the rooms didn’t had hot water, and one room doesn’t have any kind of heating.
We Didn't Want to LeaveBrendan Altus - 18th July 2022
9 Nights at Scandi House and no one wanted to leave. What a Fabulous Home, Wonderful Location with Incredible Views. The Kids Loved the trampoline, my Son and I made the most of the Gym, Sauna and Plunge Pool. And yes in the middle of winter it's a little cold. No Complaints though quite exhilarating after a Sauna. We picked Scandi House for a week away for my wife's 50th Birthday. Fantastic for a winter getaway now we are seriously considering coming back in the warmer months. Just Amazing.
