Largest landowner of the Mt Carmels is selling his house on the top of the volcano for a whopping $1.7 million to a buyer who has not visited the mountain.
Lester O’Brien’s house in the Mt Columbeigh area of Carmel is on top and is a favourite spot for tourists.
“It’s an amazing house, but it’s also one of the most iconic homes in the world,” Mr O’Brien said.
“People love to go there.
They want to be close to it and you want to have it close to you.”
My wife and I have lived in this house for years and we just want it to stay like this.
“Mr O’Connor’s house is a short walk from the base of Mt Columbo, which is about 30km away.
He said it had been difficult to find a buyer for his house.”
There are some people that are really interested in it,” he said.
