Austin keeps it weird, even with its homes: The landmark property known as BloomHouse is now on the market.

The 1,101 square foot one bedroom is located on 2.47 acres of wooded land in West Lake Hills. Built in 1980 by architect Charles Harker, the sculptural home embodies the organic architecture of the '70s. It won an 1984 Award of Merit by the Austin chapter of the American Institute of Architects, and has been exhibited at MoMA, among other accolades.

The house has nary a straight line, with nooks and built-in pieces throughout. There are also several decks and an outdoor shower.

BloomHouse is currently listed for $695,000.
