Once in a while, we come across homes that are unique and extraordinary in the truest sense of the term. And one such real-estate gem is the ‘bubble home’ in Brisbane’s west that has recently hit the market for the very first time!
Designed and owned by Graham Birchall, the home has a unique link with NASA and has taken over a decade to build. It consists of 11 intersecting bubble domes range in diameter from 4 to 8 meters (13.1 to 26.2 ft).
The structure of the home is inspired by NASA’s Mars rover, the drawings of which were procured by Birchall for its making. The unique property houses sixteen rooms including three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a four-car garage along with balconies and terraces, a glassed-in entry tunnel, curving staircases, a gorgeous library, and sprawling gardens.
It further features a circular kitchen crafted by a boat builder as well as an office on the upper floor. Other amenities include a timber heater that is capable of heating both floors and an internal water-cooling fountain that spans across storeys.
Commenting on it, Helene Shephard from First National Real Estate Action Realty Ipswich said, “When you walk in, it changes the way you feel,” She further added, “It has this energy that just calms you and you can have a lot of people in the home without even realizing it.”
