A beachfront home in Bilgola on Sydney's Northern Beaches has won Lifestyle’s property series I Own Australia’s Best Home.

The Surf’s Up Stone House has oceanfront views, a glass pool and even a basement nightclub.

Lorica and Andrew Clarke bought the original 70’s stone and timber cottage 20 years ago and has undergone renovations lasting two years.

Lorica attended the  event with her architect and said she was ecstatic.

“For our home to be so warmly received by the judges and the viewers is wonderful," she said.

"Our architect Nanna Lesiuk did a masterful job, giving our home its beauty and aesthetic, and it gives me great joy to see this work be recognised.

"The charity that we have chosen to donate the $30,000 prize money is The Kids Cancer Centre, Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick as this charity holds a special place in our hearts.” 

Interior designer Tim Leveson said Lorica and Andrew’s Surf’s Up Stone House is the quintessential Australian dream home, with the essence of the property being about fun and family.
