He said the buyer wasn’t looking for a new property but couldn’t ignore the opportunity after stumbling across the unusual house. The property hit the market in October before being snapped up just before Christmas.“They just didn’t want to miss out,” he said.Sellers Simon and Janine Newitt designed and built the four-bedroom house.The most complicated part of the build was 15m cantilevered wing, which has floor-to-ceiling windows framing sprawling bushland views.“The tie down construction was extensive to lock the cantilevered wing down to the earth,” Mr Newitt said.“This included 9m-deep rock anchors set below the primary footing. “We also drilled and blasted three rock sockets that support the cantilevered building laterally.”The couple lived in the house with their three children for almost two years.
