This cliff-hugger was described by Housing Industry Association (HIA) judges as a once-in-a- lifetime build

A cliff-hugging home by Tasmanian builder Lane Group Construction has been named the 2023 Australian Home of the Year – the highest residential building award bestowed each year by HIA.

The winners of the 2023 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards were unveiled before 550 industry leaders at the prestigious awards ceremony held on the final night of the HIA 2023 National Conference on Hamilton Island.

The spectacular single-level winning home is anchored to its windswept, bushland location by a series of heavyset stone pavilions.

An abundance of floor-length glass windows create a serene atmosphere for the owners and their guests to enjoy, connecting them to the magnificent, rugged coastline of the Derwent River from all public and private living areas.

Burnished caramel concrete floors and spotted gum timber cladding serve to perfectly match the earthy tones of the expertly wrought stonework featured so prominently in the home, while the cantilevered indoor/outdoor infinity pool, spa and sauna are an indulgent addition to this entertainer’s domain.

The home also won HIA Australian Custom Built Home.
