Trial Bay House won the 2010 Robin Boyd architecture prize.

Set on more than 17 hectares and offering views of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island, the original 1970s home was reimagined by Tasmanian architect James Jones, winning the national Robin Boyd Award for residential house architecture in 2010.

Featuring a three-bedroom home as well as a self-contained guest house, huge vegetable garden and lush greenery, Trial Bay House is being marketed by Robert Fletcher, Tracey Atkins and Ken Jacobs of Forbes Global Properties.

Mr Jenkins’ television screen credits include Blue Murder, Wildside and Heartbreak High. The couple is selling as part of plans to move back to Sydney.
