Built at Victoria's Torquay in 2014, the architectural beauty 6 Loch Lomond Crescent has come on the market with $1.35 million plus expectations.

The Hocking Stuart agent Shaun O’Callaghan says its "a raw, architectural two-storey experience of concrete, marble and brass, north-facing double glazed windows and bluestone pavers."

He adds the modern home is a unique combination of low fuss modern living under a roof garden. Around 275 sqm in floor space.

With sheltered central garden, the main home contains three bedrooms plus a study and two bathrooms. A self-contained studio comes with its own access at the top of a winding staircase.

There's plenty of concrete walls plus more concrete in the island bench in the kitchen and a fireplace in the living room.

The 579 square metre block cost $170,000 in 2006, which was less than the $190,000 in 2002.

There was a snappy sale a few doors away at 16 Loch Lomond at $815,000 of a contemporary 2008 built home. Torquay's highest recorded house price during 2015 was $2 million for 261 The Esplanade in March. There was a $2.3 million rural acreage sale too.

The Auhaus Architecture designed property will feature in an upcoming edition of Belle Magazine and GT Magazine.

Even Beacon Lighting's summer campaign.
