1982 Architectural: 2538 Sundown Dr., Los Angeles, 90065

A few years ago I visited Oia, Greece on the island of Santorini and got to stay in a crazy magical cave house overlooking the Aegean. Not only does this 1982 Architectural come with it’s own cave, geodesic dome and 180 degree views, but also enough magic to make an out-of-the-box house hunter weak in the knees.

Designed by Los Angeles architect William King, this house is sits on 3 levels: 1) a lower level 1000 sq. ft. cave residence warmed by a 15 skylights 2) an open kitchen with walls of windows and 3) a top floor flanked by a geodesic dome with wrap around deck all linked by a spiral staircase. It also features an al fresco shower and soaking tub, an open floor plan, built-ins and drought tolerant landscaping.

Now about that dome. Clocking in at 450 sq. ft., this massive 24′ diameter blue sphere is a visual feast and is currently being used as a bedroom – though it isn’t a bedroom by definition. Then again, who wouldn’t be lulled into a dreamland by views of twinkling stars and flickering city lights below?

This is so not your conventional cookie cutter 3 bedroom 2 bath house. This is magic in search of a new guardian. Want to see more?
