This Volcano House Is Basically a Real Life Bond Villain Lair
And you can actually buy it.
What do you do if you have too much money? Why, build a remote, dome-like house atop an inactive, 150-foot tall cinder cone and live there, of course! And now the home of someone who clearly had a Bond villain complex can be yours for just $650,000.
The odd abode is located about 45 minutes east of Barstow, California, out in the furthest reaches of the Mojave Desert. For the price tag, you get sixty acres of arid desert, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,206 square feet of space.
But though it’s not bursting with bedrooms, it features 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape, and a ’70s-chic decor with stone work accents. Plus a garage at the base of the cone, since your Prius probably can’t scale these cliffs.
Pro: no noisy neighbors. Con: far too much exercise to get to the front door.
