Merkaba Mansion in Tenino, WA up for auction April 20

Think ‘Guggenheim meets Spaceship’: Tenino’s Merkaba Marvel goes up for auction April 20

Once listed for $11 million, this 8,000 square foot home and its 85 acres can be yours for the bidding.

Excerpt from KING-5 TV’s Evening Magazine, NBC Seattle:

For years, Evening has featured luxurious homes on our special “Unreal Estate” segments, but the Merkaba Marvel may be the most un-real estate we’ve ever had on our show.

“The person who is going to buy Merkaba will be someone who wants to be away from it all,” said listing agent Michael Morrison of Sotheby’s. “They want to be one with nature”. [Click here for the sales video.]

“Think the Guggenheim Museum meets a spaceship.”

Those were the instructions the seller gave to South African architect Anthony Philbrick, who designed the one of a kind, 85-hundred square foot nest that sits on more than 85 acres in Tenino.

“Everything here is fluid,” Morrison said. “Everything is free flow.”


The property will auctioned online by Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions. The auction begins April 20 and ends April 27.

Merkaba is currently listed at $5.95 million. Minimum reserve bids start at $1.5 million.
