Peek Inside This Out-of-this-World Sculpture House for Sale
Greetings, Earthlings: today’s real estate gem is an out of this world “spaceship” house. And this might not even be the first time you’ve laid eyes on this otherworldly dwelling.
Originally designed by a landscape architect, the current owner has done a renovation that “reinforces the hip and sensual feel of the era in which it was built,” according to a press release.
“The flowing, curving and organic shape of this special house is what first attracted me to it. I have since fallen in love with how the space makes me feel when I am in it; completely at peace and creatively free. It has been an honor to be part of the narrative of this home and add my own interpretation in the redesign of the space,” said Cynthia Williams, the current owner of the home.
While the house itself is a modest 700 square-foot one bedroom, one bathroom, there’s an expansive 5,000 square-foot “garden oasis, with winding paths and dozens of different exotic plants” overlooking Monterey Bay.
“This one-of-a-kind residential sculpture represents a rare opportunity to not merely gaze at a work of art but to live in one,” said Nanette Schuster, listing agent. “Within a block of the ocean bluff, the setting feels a world away, yet is conveniently located between Monterey and Santa Cruz.”
Williams’ daughter, Angelina Rennell, told Apartment Therapy that her favorite elements are “the walls and windows, how they curve, are so solid and thick, and the windows are like portals to another world. The house feels like a dream, not of this world.” But the dreamy space comes with a challenge: As of 2016, at least, there were no closets.
