Crush of the Week – Welcome to the Octagon

cotw – welcome to the octagon!

Our real estate crush this week is the octagon. This unique piece of architecture is built with a craftsman aesthetic and an eye for green living. This 3-story home’s main level master makes it perfect for aging in place. Its individual style and location – on a mountaintop next to the Shenandoah National Park, wineries, art, and festivals – would make it a great vacation home or Airbnb. Plus, you can settle all family disputes in the octagon (no mixed martial arts experience required).

the clerestory is the story

The octagon has many fantastic features (THREE spa bathrooms?!), and one of the most interesting is the 3rd-floor clerestory. A window on each wall of the octagon provides a 360-degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park. While you are up there grab your telescope, or just relax and enjoy the zen-like experience.

THREE spa bathrooms

I can’t even.
