Situated on the banks of the Bremer River, the listing is described as “an ode to [the] strength, beauty and simplicity of the humble circle.”

The original concept was created in the mid-80s as part of a university thesis. Mr Birchall then spent years designing and refining the idea, before committing to building – and then living – in the property.

Featuring sliding iris-style windows, a golf tee, wine cellar, four-car remote lock up garage and river frontage, the house is set on more than 5,000 square metres of land and has to be seen to be believed.

Mr Birchall has decided to move on, so this unique property could be yours. Offers over $1.5 million, please.
