Perched 40 metres above Fairhaven Beach is the iconic ‘Pole House’, 689 square feet of open-plan architectural excitement.
Built by Frank Dixon, the Pole House became an instant landmark of the Victoria coastline – the concrete apostle recently undergoing a massive overhaul by Franco Fiorentini from F2 Architecture.
Boasting 200 degree ocean views, a hanging fireplace and epic sunsets, the Pole House is only a one bedroom wonder. A queen bed and single bathroom control the space, which is less about the amenities, however, and more so about the experience.
Guests will most likely spend their time studying the fifty kilometres of coast visible from their view.
“From the Split Point Lighthouse at Aireys Inlet the Great Ocean Road rides a rollercoaster of hills through the forests of The Otways to and beyond Lorne.”
Starting at $434+ per night (minimum 2 nights), the Pole House is the coastal anomaly in demand this summer.
