If you invented the spincast fishing reel, don't tell me you wouldn't design your house to look like one. You would. And it would be great.

R.D. Hull invented the reel in the late 1940s, and as the story goes: ""In 1969, [he] walked into the architect's office — Cecil Stanfield here in Tulsa — in his overalls and said, 'I want you to build me a 10,000-square-foot house that looks like a fishing reel,'" co-listing agent Mark Youngblood of Chinowth & Cohen Realtors told Zillow.

It's not just the exterior of this Oklahoma home that's circular, either. The bedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen island. There's even a (round, of course) indoor pool and hot tub that's at the center of the reel and can be seen from every room.

The five bedroom, seven bathroom home is on six acres in Catoosa, Oklahoma, and is listed for $6 million. It's next to a lake, which is obviously perfect for the fishing enthusiast that purchases a fishing-reel shaped home.
