Overlooking Australia’s famous Great Ocean Road, the Pole House at Fairhaven is all about chilling by the beach. Suspended 131 feet up in the air, the Pole House design brief was always going to be over the top.

The infinity edge pool stretches along the full width of the house, providing breathtaking views out over the island, while the recycled timber outdoor swing is the perfect place to relax with a cocktail in hand.
