Attwood house with a wild surprise hits the market
A wild surprise lies within this house that has hit the market in Attwood.
Soaring behind tropical palm trees, the five-bedroom house at 93 Stonebridge Way has an unassuming facade that gives no hint of what lies within.
However, a step inside reveals an extraordinary decor that would not look out of place in a woodland cabin.

Every turn reveals an animal artefact, from a deer’s skull with antlers hanging from the ceiling to a cow’s hide spread across the floor.
A rustic wooden unit in the lounge room is adorned with a cow’s head that complements side tables made from sawn-off tree trunks and covered with animal skin.
Stockdale & Leggo’s Frank Squatrito said the house had an unusual floorplan and eclectic decor.
“I have never really seen anything like it,” he said.
The house had changed hands twice since it was designed and built by its original owners about 20 years ago.
It was wow-ing prospective buyers, who were impressed by the finish and floorplan that features five living areas spread over two floors.
The decked outdoor living zone is a standout with its dining table built from a gnarled tree trunk and branches, fireplace, storage for firewood and cafe blinds.
A perfect party venue throughout the year, it comes with a kitchen with a raw timber breakfast bench, sink and a deluxe stainless-steel barbecue under a rangehood.
Buyers were also enamoured with the dedicated theatre room with a projector and screen that leads to a soundproofed music room hidden on a lower level.
The home’s location in the coveted Alanbrae Estate was also a drawcard.
“Houses in this estate are tightly held and people hardly ever leave,” Mr Squatrito said.
“Also a house of this size is a rare find in the area.”
