All spin no sale: rotating Canberra home fails to sell at auction

The solar powered rotating home in Canberra’s outer-north has failed to sell at auction this week.

Co-selling agent Stephen Bunday of LJ Hooker Dickson told Property Oberserver there had been no registrations despite attracting an "enormous amount of curiosity".

"On the night, nothing happened at all, " said Bunday, who is selling the Ross Norwood-designed house alongside fellow LJ Hooker agent Anthony Sorace.

The house at 12 Indi Close is now listed for sale by negotiation.

"We will try and sell it in the next couple of weeks. If it does not sell, the owner will move into it," he says.

"It may be ahead of its time," he added.

Pre-auction expectations were above $1 million.

Bunday says the property is worth around $1.2 million when the value of the land is factored in.

The house, called Girasole, is the brainchild of builder John Andriolo.

It is supported by 28 wheels and driven by two three-speed motors.

It takes 10 minutes to fully rotate and is controlled by a touch screen panel.
