Striking Gisborne semicircular home finds $807,500 buyer looking for views

With a disclosed $750,000 reserve price and 14 contract requests, the weekend auction of a striking modern home at Gisborne triggered an $807,500 sale.

The 115 Outlook Lane house, with views of Mount Macdeon, sold through Julian Davies at Keatings Real Estate.

Set above Jacksons Creek, the 1.7-hectare vacant building holding was bought in late 2007 for $340,000 by Kate and Ollie Luciano.

There are views from every room through floor-to-ceiling glass along the entire length of the semicircular design of the valley where deer roam.

After their initial inspection of the site the Lucianos took a sketch made on butcher's paper to the architect Design Edge, who came up with a structure designed as a series of 12 wedge-shaped segments, each supported by a framework of high-strength steel columns and beams and spanned by extra-thick laminated glass panels.
