"5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms - Asking price of £1,663,470 (€2,440,000)
"Designed by the new age architect Antti Lovag in the mid 70's, this unique futuristic Bubble house enjoys spectacular features such as an indoor river and cactus garden, and is set in 17 acres of Provencale countryside with panoramic views of the Mediterranean coastline.
"Perfect for aspiring super-villain or playboy criminal mastermind."
In the 70s, the future was full of people in tunics.

tell me you don't want to live there, just for a minute.
Well, I'm not sure a tunic would be a good look for me...
DEVON DEVON PHOTOSHOP NOW NOW NOW
I'll settle for a Logan's Run-style jumpsuit.
Totally. No question.
Man, I thought the geodesic dome estate I found last year was super-stupid-cool. This is way more of all three of those things.
L'habitation lovagienne = BadFreakinAss!
Hmm... I'm seeing post-apocalyptic brothel a la Cherry 2000.
That is, without a doubt, the most 70s thing I have ever seen.
"It's like living in the not too distant future!"
"Do you expect me to gawk?"
"Nooo, Mr. Bond. I expect you to buy!"
What, and Roger Dean doesn't even get a credit? Faugh.
Wasn't that where Barbarella was filmed?
Its a Monolithic Dome!!!
Really more of a minilith...
Does it include a VW dunebuggy?
Now we know where Burt Rutan got the design for SpaceShipOne.
That is the coolest house EVER. Seriously. I love it. I want to make it my summer lair.
For what it is, the price is actually quite reasonable.
I agree. It's fantastic.

Just looking at it, I expect either Sean Connery's James Bond or Austin Powers to walk out!

O MY GOD! IT'S THE BARBAPAPAS!
thanks, buz. i love you now. i was meaning to ask about that one, as i was starting to wonder if i'd halucinated half my childhood...
Yes. You did halucinate half of your childhood. However, the part with people building giant domes with their butts and eating alligator pie... that half was real.
Seventies sci-fi was all about hexagons
no no that was geodesic you're thinking of there. really not the same, those were filled with dirty hippies
I am having Prisoner flashbacks.
"You are Number Six"
yeah i know the actually location is in wales of that hotel but still... It's soo. Gnaaaah.. The outside looks like what Tetsuo turns into at the end of Akira.
And burnt orange. Burnt orange and avacado green. Everything from the 70's was one of those two colors...
How could you forget dog-shit ("mission") brown and "harvest gold"? the 70s had 4 colors. You can't have just 2 colors for an apocalypse!
My god you're right. All that shag carpeting and lead paint must have clouded my memory. I'll go sit on my beanbag chair to reflect on this...
I must have it!!!
I'm sure you've seen the same thing on 280 in San Mateo (rather, Hillsborough) - http://www.thewavemag.com/pagegen.php?pagename=article&articleid=24784
I want it.
But should the master bedroom have a round or heart-shaped waterbed? I can't decide.
Hey it looks a bit like one of those Umgah things from the game Star Control.
Watch the bubbles, see if any of them blink.
Round, rotating, and covered with hundred dollar bills. (Name that movie.)
I really have no idea, but that idea stands on it's own merits.
That was the ONLY good Sci-Fi MST3k episode, if you fast-forwarded through the host segments. I guess they decided to go out with a bang.
no Self reespecting super villian would live in a place like thhis... unless it had sharks and henchmen
