8 Is Great: Mysterious Octagonal Home in Washington Easily Finds a Buyer

Sultan, Washington, residents didn’t have to wait long for an offer on an eight-sided home.

Within eight days of becoming up for sale in December, the octagonal house found a buyer.

It goes without saying that the peculiarity sparked a lot of attention.

According to listing agent Angela Nebeker of John L. Scott Sammamish, “there are rumours that swirl.” “Many members of the local community have always wanted to visit this house, which is hidden behind iron gates.”

The strange mansion has been shrouded in mystery for a long time and is marketed for $960,000.

For instance, the square footage of the house is a little mysterious. Nebeker notes that whereas some documents place the house’s square footage at 7,384, others have it closer to 10,000.

The house, which was constructed in 1987, requires some maintenance because it has effectively been neglected for the past two years.

Nebeker finds the place interesting, saying it “feels like a movie set.” “… like a home that ought to serve as a place of amusement. It makes me think of a location where gatherings used to take place.

Nebeker mentions the pool and hot tub, both of which are now a little murky.

Angular abode

There are three bedrooms and three and a half baths in the house, most of which have unusual angles, floors, and staircases.

“I think part of what makes it appealing to me is the architecture alone, which makes it unique,” Nebeker adds. “And a lot of things are unknown about it.”

The property, which has more than six acres, needs maintenance as well.

Nebeker claims that despite their neglect, the property features elevated flower beds and gardens that can be seen when strolling about. The homeowner is said to have hidden gold someplace on the property, but no one will ever locate it, according to rumours.

Nebeker was informed by the property administrator that the builder of the house founded a telecom business. It’s a detail that might help to explain some of the abandoned technology.

“There are large, antiquated cameras all over the house, but none of them work anymore,” she claims. “Everywhere you look on the downstairs walls are telephones.”

Nearly 5,000 square feet of space in two metal shop buildings on the property might be utilised for labour, storage, or as a garage.

Nebeker claims that a rapid offer was made on the house due to high interest.

She thinks, “I wish I could have seen it when it was in its prime.” “I wish I had seen this house when all of those items were in good working order.”

According to Nebeker, the buyers want to restore the house to its former state.
