Hinterland Octogon Home will please & intrigue
Prepare for captivation at this unique Octagon House, set in the hinterland hills of Eumundi among an array of substantial acreage homes.
Becoming popular in Canada and the US during the 1850s, the Octagon House has a stately design, diverse shape and recognisable appearance.
Most believe the design was the brainchild of architect Orson Squire Fowler, and is among the most efficient, benefiting from enhanced natural light flow and temperature regulation. It is also among the strongest structures, yet building costs are minimised without skimping on quality.
While essentially an octagonal design, this residence embraces local architecture and pays homage to Queenslander design via large breezy verandas.
Cited on two acres in a premier position, the residence sits elevated capturing a picturesque vista across the property and surrounding hinterland, including Mt Eerwah.
Full of character, the three-bedroom home, while quirky, is highly functional and features ample storage and security screens and doors throughout.
Attributed to its octagonal shape, beautiful raked ceilings with exposed beams add to the charm, while a potbelly stove with exposed brick mantle complement the look.
Custom built shelving with kitchen-aid attachments; twin sinks and a gas cooktop are on offer in the kitchen, which shares an open design with the light and airy dining space.
Outside are two sheds, including one three-bay with power, ideal for home business in need of equipment storage area, including tradesmen, earth-movers and more.
A two-bay shed is ideal for an extended visit from friends or family, with a conversion to self-contained unit featuring kitchen facilities, living room and bedroom.
All of this is just over 1km to Eumundi State School and not too much further to the eclectic town centre with the popular Eumundi markets and more.
