There's No Place Like Home!

Straight from the Forbes.com website, I bring you a few unique and unusual homes...in case you're thinking about relocating and you have a bottomless bank account to achieve your goal.

Just as my title says, there's no place like these homes!

First, if you firmly believe that your home should be your castle, this may be just what you're looking for:




This beauty, called the Stone Castle, located in the Bronx, New York, and can be acquired for a mere $2.99 milllion.  (I'll bet you could get it for an even $2.9!)

Maybe a castle on a hillside isn't your cup of tea?  How would you feel about a mushroom?

And the inside?  
This one is much more reasonably priced at $1.1 million in Pittsford, NY.


You don't have to economize?  Then maybe this is the one you're looking for:



These digs in Los Angeles, California can be yours for $13 million.  Very comfortable quarters, I'm sure!


No?  You want to be on the water you say?  


Then this floating home may be just the ticket.  It's permanently attached to its dock in Seattle, Washington, and you can come aboard with your belongings for the sum of $3.45 million.


You'd like an ethnic theme feeling, you say?  Well  how about:

This Moroccan Palace in Houston, Texas houses a tiled inner courtyard and a petting zoo. 

  All that and more can be yours for  $8.9 million.

Oh, you were looking for something more secluded and woodsy?


Would this do the trick?


This Sculpture Home in Glorietta, New Mexico is listed at $1.68 million.  Almost a bargain next to some of the rest of these.

Still too rich for your purse?  Well, let's downsize to something more affordable:

If the others were too ostentatious for your taste, then this little gem my fill the bill.

This Monolithic Dome Home in El Prado, New Mexico can be had for a  mere $225,000.

If you didn't see what you wanted, there are more to browse through at the Forbes site.  Click on the link to drool at your leisure and see how the "other half" lives!
Thanks to the Forbes Website for the great photos and info!

One of my favorite shows is Selling New York. They homes are incredible! Even more are the prices.

Jeannie said...

Thanks for recommending those beautiful homes, all duly noted and dreaming on:)

The Monolithic Dome home looks perfect for me.
A little too far away from my workplace though....
I love the first castle and often dreamed of living in such a place when I was just a kid, but now I'd want something smaller, easier to heat in winter.
The mushroom place is intriguing, I wonder who thought that up?

Queenie Jeannie said...

Didn't see any favs....I'm very traditional I guess, lol!

That dome house looks like the one from the first Star Wars, where Luke's aunt and uncle were massacred. Ugh. No thank you.

It's the castle for me. I'l take two, please.

Brian Miller said...

If I couldn't live in a yurt, a mushroom would do quite nicely!

EmptyNester said...

Bottomless bank account---that's what I want. LOL

Ann On and On... said...

I'll take them all. I've been trying to think of what to do with all the money I have. :S

Maybe I'll leave the mushroom home for the fungus lovers.

Jen said...

Oh my!! These homes are pretty nice!! And sooooo inexpensive....
hmmmm....have to ponder. ...which one will it be...

i'm kind of loving the mushroom house. it's pretty weird from the outside, but the inside looks unique and comfy. as long as it doesn't actually smell like fungus...

Very interesting. Proof that some people have too much damn money.

tsonodablog said...

I'll take that first one, please (the castle). I could be inspired to write many a juicy stories if I were in those digs. Nice!

Pat MacKenzie said...

Amazing houses - too much glass in a lot of them - I'd feel like I was living in a fish bowl. Think I'd like the mushroom one.

zaylyn said...

This is great. I love the castle!

Eva Gallant said...

Jen: It's a tough choice, I know!

Terri: You can write great stuff anywhere!

Jayne: So far, so good! Thanks.

Pat: The mushroom is definitely the most private.
