Architectural Masterpiece O’Hare House Bardon Listed for Sale

Architectural Masterpiece O’Hare House has hit the market and is now for sale in leafy Bardon, just 6 km from Brisbane’s CBD. Designed by prominent architect Shane Thompson, the stunning home seamlessly blends contemporary luxury living with its natural bushland surroundings.



Nestled amongst towering eucalyptus trees, the house features an elevated position with north-east aspect capturing breathtaking views and an abundance of natural light. Thompson himself describes the design as delivering “life at its subtropical best”, with the bushland environment a driving inspiration.

“Designing this house on this spectacular site was a particularly joyous experience,” Thompson remarked.

“It has a beautiful connection with the vast bushland of Mt Cootha, a secluded and quiet sanctuary, broken only by the occasional native birdsong, but with easy access to the city.”

The gently curved butterfly roof evokes a sense of living under a timber parasol, while generous living areas are strung along a north-facing platform to maximise indoor-outdoor flow. Sliding doors connect to an expansive cantilevered deck amongst the treetops – perfect for summer entertaining or winter relaxation.
