    This house is visually stunning and unique in every way, the striking entrance is one of the best features, and the views are a major selling point. The only problem I see with this is how you would get your own furniture to fit in, everything would like out of place. I would expect the owners would have trouble replacing the windows if they were ever damaged. It isn’t something I would ever consider buying, but I would love a friend to live in a place like this! Could imagine this being used as a mystical/magical film set.

    Who the f*** would pay $24.995 million for this? Its way overpriced and due to its funky look, it likely won’t attract many buyers.

    Cool house, I like it. Might want to scratch that 2 off the price on the listing though.

    I think this is awesome. It’s wonderful seeing something that isn’t “Mediterranean” or “Tuscan” with drab predictable furnishings. The amount of detail that went into this is truly impressive. Yeah, this isn’t for everyone, but it’s got tons of character, and it’s a work of art.

    Gotta agree wholeheartedly with Grrrowler on this. It’s certainly in the category of “would never live in it, but am glad it exists”. In a sea of mediocre McMansions, MockMeds, and everything else, homes like this remind you that anything is possible in architecture.

    I can tell that the architecture is native-American influenced just by the name “Wovoka.” This is one of the few truly “American” homes on this site..

    I personally find this to be simply one of the best looking mansions on this website. I love everything about it except for the price. This proves that not all houses have to be “European inspired” or a dull modern mess. If I could have every dull mock-med, faux chateau, mcmansion, and brutalist box replaced by these, I certainly would.

    Well you certainly can’t say this doesn’t have character. I get a slight ecclesiastical vibe from this. There are some cool spaces, but I think they took the diamond motif a little too far.

    This place is very cool. As a vacation retreat / second home, I would be proud to own something like this. The amount you’d have to spend on custom furnishings though… Ohhh Myyyyyy!
