THE par­ents of renowned Port Dou­glas ar­chi­tect Charles Wright are sell­ing their mas­ter­de­signed tro­phy home.

Michael and Lynne Wright own lot 28 in the ex­clu­sive Beach­front Mi­rage es­tate in Port Dou­glas, which was built by their ac­claimed son.

Built in 2008, the house won the FNQ Res­i­den­tial Ar­chi­tec­ture Award from the Aus­tralian In­sti­tute of Ar­chi­tects.

The four-bed­room prop­erty, – which was listed this week for $4.7 mil­lion – was also ranked in the top 150 houses in the world ac­cord­ing to the 21st Cen­tury Houses pub­li­ca­tion.

Sell­ing agent Cal­lum Jones said the iconic house had been “ad­mired lo­cally and glob­ally” since its con­struc­tion.

“Cut­ting edge de­sign and a no-cost-spared con­struc­tion has re­sulted in one of the finest homes you will find any­where,” Mr Jones said.

“Now, for the first time, the home is be­ing proudly of­fered for sale. Im­por­tantly, this home is au­to­mat­i­cally ap­proved for for­eign pur­chasers.”

Fea­tur­ing strik­ing de­sign el­e­ments, cathe­dral ceil­ings, four bed­rooms which open onto tran­quil “wa­ter gar­dens” and a swim­ming pool, pol­ished con­crete floors and ex­pan­sive tim­ber decks – the prop­erty blends the trop­i­cal out­doors with the in­doors.

“From the mo­ment you walk up to the front door you are greeted with a roof line and de­sign un­like any other.

“Nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als blend to­gether per­fectly and on en­trance you know you have ar­rived in a home that is just per­fect for the trop­ics.

“This res­i­dence boasts a large amount of space, loads of stor­age, great air­flow, full se­cu­rity and a high level of pri­vacy.”

There is also a nearby walk­way for di­rect beach ac­cess.

The lux­ury pad has more re­cently been used as a hol­i­day home where it fetches a nightly rent of $1100.

It of­fers in-house cater­ing, spa treat­ments, a nanny ser­vice and pri­vate yoga ses­sions.

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL SEN­SA­TION: This strik­ing home in Port Dou­glas from ac­claimed ar­chi­tect Charles Wright is on the mar­ket for $4.7 mil­lion.
