It could also set a top price for the town, with the current record at $4.8 million, Great Ocean Road Property director Ian Stewart said.
The design and large 1816sq m block on two titles made the property a “landmark” in town, he said: “It’s a one-off.”
The circa-1973 building by renowned architect Guilford Bell features a pagoda-like main hub, where an impressive ceiling soars above the kitchen, living and dining space.
“When you’re inside it just spirals to the sky,” Mr Stewart said. It’s just such a unique and different structure.”
High-end finishes including terrazzo flooring offer a sophisticated feel.
From the main hub, sliding doors reveal a deck with circular swimming pool and outdoor kitchen, with a jaw-dropping coastal view as the backdrop.
Six bedrooms, including five with ensuites, are in a separate wing of the house.
A mod-grass tennis court and greenery complete the resort-style picture.
The current Lorne record was created in 2010 when 57 George St sold for $4.8 million.
