The Octagon House is the third residence designed and built by Anthony Verebes. Although born and raised amidst the adobe
architecture of Southern California,
Verebes also spent many of his formative years in Europe where he was influenced by a
rugged, wood-beamed style that is typical of the Swiss Alps. Known to utilize an eclectic variety of materials in an elegant way,
Verebes's Octagon House features industrial-sized restaurant wok gates, custom wrought iron banisters and air vents, tiered garden paths made from railroad ties, and various other items foraged from flea markets and architectural wrecking yards.
