On the banks of the Coomera River in Queensland’s tightly held Sanctuary Cove, the award-winning ‘Cove House’ by architect Justin Humphrey is sprawled across a 966sqm block.

Located an hour from Brisbane CBD, or 30-minutes from the Gold Coast at 7366 Marine Drive East, Sanctuary Cove in Queensland, the 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom and 3-car garage home takes its cues from both brutalist architecture and tropical modernism. The heady combination sees an intriguing melding of materials and details – such as off-form concrete and curving timber battens –  throughout the home that follows an unconventional layout revolving around lush, open-air tropical garden atriums.

Sanctuary Cove

Dark tones set against timber is a theme that is reflected throughout the home – including in the kitchen – which sees a charcoal hued benchtop, European appliances and a hidden wine cellar.

From here, the space flows towards the dining and living areas where timber panelling adorns the ceiling and floor-to-ceiling glass windows give views to the aforementioned central tropical gardens and out to the river.

From the main living area and kitchen, the outdoor entertaining terrace is accessed. The luxurious space is fitted with an in-built barbeque and fireplace, kitchenette with bar fridges, sunken lounge and a pool while an attached mooring allows homeowners to lap up their watery surrounds.

Elsewhere, the home’s master suite sees curved architectural features, glass Venetian-style shutters, a walk-in robe and an ‘indoors-outdoors’ ensuite that offers privacy through the residences central gardens (while still feeling like you’re outside). A further two bedrooms and study are found throughout the home as well as a private laundry courtyard.

Beyond the Cove House’s considered finishes, it holds a submerged rainwater tank, a solar photovoltaic system capable of 15kW alongside three Tesla energy storage batteries furthering its green cred.

The listing is with Matt Gates (+61 404 444 439) of Ray White Sanctuary Cove; POA.

Amid a national housing crisis, these are the home building hot spots

Australia is in the midst of a housing crisis with supply challenges and demand pressures leading to a clogged pipeline of unfinished new home builds and approvals per capita languishing at decade-lows. There aren’t enough tradies to finish the homes under construction in normal timeframes. Meantime, construction costs have risen by 40 percent since late 2019 and contributed to dramatically higher insolvencies among building companies. High interest rates and lengthy approval processes have also prompted some developers to shelve plans for new projects altogether.

All of these challenges mean the National Housing Accord, with its ambition to build 1.2 million well-located homes over the next five years, will begin shortly amid very difficult conditions. However, the Federal and state and territory governments have agreed to the plan and plenty of money was allocated in the recent Federal Budget to get the program officially underway from 1 July.

Meanwhile, the Housing Industry Association (HIA) has published a report revealing the areas that are in line to receive the most new homes soonest, based on the value of approvals during FY23. The HIA has paired this data with population figures to identify the growth hot spots across Australia.

HIA economist Maurice Tapang said the top 20 hot spots for new approvals and above-average population growth were predominantly suburbs with greenfield developments. These developments require state governments to fund and build supporting infrastructure such as power lines, sewage and water pipes, roads and footpaths to service thousands of new residential lots.

“This is testament to the role that greenfield developments play in supporting the growth of our cities,” Mr Tapang said. “The drivers of housing demand are population and economic growth. Supporting population growth will require supplying adequate homes, which will entail providing the necessary infrastructure and land supply to grow our cities.

“As the high cost of the typical house and land package in some of our capital cities becomes out of reach to the typical income earner, it is important for policymakers to facilitate the supply needed to fill housing shortages. In order to build the Australian Government’s target of 1.2 million homes, there needs to be a healthy balance between greenfield and infill developments to support building well-located homes of all types.”
