The Garcia House
A lot of the houses on this list are mentioned because they are weird. This one in particular made it on the list, because it’s over-the-top beautiful. The iconic “Garcia House” in Los Angeles, CA features “60-foot caissons” that elevate the structure above the canyon, a lava rock entry, a parabolic roof and a 55 foot wall of windows. It was designed by a famous architect John Lautner, and built in 1962. Outside of the house, it looks like a futuristic spaceship. And inside, it’s absolutely stunning with so much natural light pouring in through the windows. The house is currently listed for $16 million, which is pretty normal for the Los Angeles area.
