On August 26, 2018, the sod of the bare Encounter Lakes block was turned, marking the ceremonial commencement of the Beach House build.

Thanks to the dedicated build partners, the entire framework for the House including the ceiling framing and roofing was completed by the end of February 2019.

In March 2019, the construction phase was nearly complete and the landscape transformation begun.

On Tuesday 28 May, 2019, Bella Build & Design’s owners Marisa and Paul Bellardino officially handed over the Beach House keys to the WCH Foundation’s Chairman Nick Begakis AO and Chief Executive Jane Scotcher, in anticipation for the first family arriving in June.
