When it hit the market in 2018 for $11 million, this unusual UFO-style residence was the most expensive in Pierce, Mason and Thurston Counties. Just three years later and a handful of reductions, the 8,400 square foot home can now be yours for $5.95 million. According to Mansion Global, the out of this world design is the work of a South African architect who was commissioned by Rebecca Oppenheimer, an heiress to the De Beers diamond fortune. Completed around 2006, the impressive 86 acre site includes sustainable gardens, a saltwater pool, separate 3 bedroom guest house and an archery range. Mansion Global reported, “Ms. Oppenheimer said she made the home as self-sustaining as possible. A beekeeper looks after the honey bees, and there is also a greenhouse and a chicken coop. There is also a saltwater pool, a heliport and a barn with three bedrooms for guests. When it came to the landscaping, Ms. Oppenheimer said she was inspired by the Garden of Cosmic Speculation, a sculpture garden is west Scotland that was based on modern cosmology. Pathways throughout the grounds are cut in swirling patterns.” The residence is environmentally friendly and self-sustaining with geothermal/solar systems allowing for nearly off-grid living. Double gated land mass gives serenity, privacy and presence with nature. The unique home is on the market for $5.95 million with Michael Morrison of Morrison House Sotheby’s International Realty.
