One of the Great Ocean Road's finest architectural designs has become available for sale at 1 George Street in Lorne. 

Designed by leading architect Neil Trabant, the seemingly completely glass construct consists of three stories, all connected by an internal elevator and cantilevered stairs. 

The eight bedroom, six bathroom home includes a self-contained dual key top floor apartment with its own decking that has 180 degree views of the ocean and forested coastline. 

A ground floor games room opens to a sheltered bluestone terrace and landscaped garden with a three car garage also located on the ground.

Abercromby listing agents Jock Langley and Tim Bennetts are anticipating interest from around the high $2 millions. 

Jock says that he plans to place the property in front of a number of overseas clients via the video produced by Goldeneye Media.

"It has the location and the design pedigree to catch the eye of offshore buyers looking for a sophisticated family compound to escape too,” he said.  

Current owners Peter and Mandy Matthews said that you feel more like you are moving around a resort then a home, there is always somewhere to retreat to and something to look at.

A five bedroom, five bathroom property at 123 Smith Street sold for $3.3 million late last year, just five days after the bushfires in the area.

Lorne's price record has stood at $4.4 million since the sale of 1 Roadknight Street in December 2011.

Looking at the Roadknight video, which can be seen here, it is easy to see and hear the advancement of video technology over the last four years in comparison to Goldeneye Media's 2016 clip of 1 George Street.
