The latest supervillain lair for sale

Literal volcano fortress:

The Volcano House, a saucer shaped mid-century icon perched on top of a 150-foot cinder cone, offers rare architectural elements paired with unique 360 degree views. Once owned by Huell Howser, the late producer and host of the TV show California's Gold, the Volcano House sits proudly on 60 Mojave Desert acres approximately 45 minutes east of Barstow. This carefully renovated architectural two bedroom, two bathroom masterpiece offers multiple viewing and observation decks allowing you to soak in the beauty of the area, including surrounding mountains and the on-site lake. The high curved ceilings, open floor plan, and the multiple sliding glass doors that provide access to the viewing deck that wraps around the house, all work together to help you experience this unparalleled property.

At the base of the Volcano House is a detached two-story structure that contains an oversized garage as well as an upstairs apartment that could be the ideal caretaker's minion's residence.

    Hope it turns up on Air B&B.

  3. $650k. That affordable if you already have a helicopter.

  4. Not me says:

    What made Heull Howser want to live in a nipple?

  5. Not Frank says:

    I scrolled down to "Nearby Similar Homes" but it was a lie.

    I would put a bid on it, but they seem to have neglected to mention the state of the stainless steel blast shielding, and also no word on the shark tank nor the trap door in the elevator, so I’m guessing it’s a “fixer-upper.” On the plus side, from a distance it looks rather like a nipple.

    This makes me like Huell Howser even more than I already did.

    Walkscore, ZERO.

  8. J. Peterson says:

    In other news, the Flintstone House is rumored to be coming up for sale.

    East of Barstow. Think I'll wait until delivery drone technology is available.

  10. WANT. And considering what SF real estate costs in comparison, shockingly affordable!
