Qld’s quirkiest home, built into four grain silos, sold in hot market

The historic Kairi grain silo home has sold after over four years of trying to find its next owner.

It’s taken the hottest market on record to do so but Qld’s quirkiest home – built into four grain silos – has finally sold four years after first being listed.

The two bedroom, one bathroom home sits tucked into the side of historic grain silos, bought for just $5,000 off Tableland Maizegrowers in 2010.

The grain silos are a landmark in the area.

The silos have potential to be part of a historical art trail.

The kitchen is functional and practical.

The property has been listed for sale on and off since 2017, priced first at offers around $249,000 before dropping to the most recent listing of $238,000.

Agent Daimin Kochi of Main Street Real Estate – Atherton took over the quirky listing in April this year, landing a new owner six months later.

“For as far as the eye can see, the Kiari grain silos stand out as one of the Atherton Tablelands iconic land marks,” was how the property was described, with some hope that it could even become a gallery, accommodation, cafe/restaurant, museum or part of the silo art trail.

The property was first listed for sale in 2017.

The four silos are untouched and remain in original condition.

The home is laid out townhouse-style.

The home itself sits in the front of the grain silo structure in what was originally the office and weigh station, but all the machinery from the silos has been kept on site.

The silos themselves are accessed from inside the home, with a door opening to the first two silos and an shaft that runs underneath all four.

“The four silos are untouched and remain in original condition with the counter weight lift still in place.”

The home sold on October 7, according to CoreLogic records, with no price made public as yet.
