More Views of the Hexagon House

Readers were intrigued by this house when I posted it last week. Someone wanted to see it from different angles so when I found myself in Winchester on Sunday, I parked on Hawthorne Drive and walked around.

The hexagon is a rare shape for a house, even more so than an octagon. I imagine placing furniture in the odd-shaped rooms can be a challenge.

The building is occasionally open to the public for events, so perhaps I'll visit it some day. It dates to 1873 and has a central chimney. The architect was Brice Leatherman.

  1. ...I have seen several hexagon house in my area, but this one is very special.

  2. I've never seen a hexagon house myself - this one is quite beautiful from the outside. I don't know how they arrange the rooms - it must be difficult.

  3. Muito bonita, gosto desta arquitectura, aproveito para desejar a continuação de uma boa semana.

  4. Hello, it is a beautiful home. I like the shape, color and details around the porch! Wishing you a happy day!

  5. I'm glad to hear an architect was involved, rather than someone with just a whim who wanted to try to do this design...so obviously the structure is sound, and yes, as everyone else is wondering...how did they arrange rooms?

  6. It is beautiful, and I love that it is so well cared for. A central chimney is an unusual feature.
