The Summer House community facility sits within a substantial, centrally located site accessed from Hampton Street, Harristown, Toowoomba. The site is 7.79ha with a long north-facing frontage overlooking Adams Park, providing excellent recreational amenity. The development in which the Summer House sits is a residential development designed exclusively for the over 50's demographic of 162 dwellings. The Summer House, and later a central recreation building, provide the community with substantial recreation facilities for sporting and social activities.

The Summer House building features a language of crisp white exposed structural members - posts, beams, rafters, verandah frames - to create a light and textured, inviting building character. The “Hamptons” style timber member expression creates a distinctive textured architectural style which has appeal across all generations.

The Summer House featuring crisp white exposed structural members opens out onto a resort-style pool.
