Once listed at $11M this ‘green’ WA state estate can be snapped up for just under $6M

From the Tacoma News Tribune via MSN:

A one-of-a-kind estate in Tenino that went on the market in 2018 for $11 million is now a bargain at $5.95 million.

In 2018, it was the most expensive residence ever listed in Thurston, Pierce and Mason counties, according to Tacoma agent Michael Morrison of Sotheby’s International Realty.

The estate is called Merkaba, which, potential buyers are told, means light, spirit and body.

South African owner Rebecca Oppenheimer reportedly told the home’s initial architect that she wanted it to resemble a spaceship and the famed Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Guggenheim Museum.


Oppenheimer is the South African granddaughter of Harry Oppenheimer, former chairman of De Beers Consolidated Mines. De Beers once controlled 90 percent of the world’s diamond market.

Oppenheimer was associated with the nearby Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment.


Oppenheimer put Merkaba on the market in 2018 when she returned to live in South Africa.
