The Wedge House, one of Whale Beach's most identifiable properties, has hit the market.

The home, with two wedges that extend in opposite directions, was designed by architect Peter Stutchbury and colleague Marika Jarv.

Professor Max Irvine was the construction engineer on the Beauty Drive project.

It has a guide of $3 million to $3.3 million through LJ Hooker Palm Beach agents David Edwards and Danielle Forde.

It was built between 1998 and 2000 for the current vendors, Deon and Kim Hubner, co-founders of Living Ocean, the not for profit organisation for ocean care and awareness.

They paid $520,000 for the 710 square metre property in 1998 before commissioning Stutchbury Architects to create the space now set in Pape Landscape gardens.

Set high above Whale Beach, the house was designed to take advantage of its position overlooking the sand and sea.

It won the 2003 Australian Timber Design award after its build by Bryce Campbell.

The lighter, northern wedge is designed to fly beyond its anchored partner, diagonally outward.

Its cantilevered wing homes the open plan living, kitchen and dining space.

The southern wedge is nestled into the garden and courtyard.

It is made up of the master retreat with walk in wardrobe and study.

Multiple openings connect the living areas to the gardens.

Two further bedroom, a living space and bathroom sit beach the upstairs living area and deck. 

Its land value is $1.7 million.

LJ Hooker suggest is summer rental at peak season would be $1000 a night. Or $1500 a week for a long term annual rental
