For Sale: The Joshua Tree Invisible House – Peek Inside for $18 Million
The Invisible House, situated on 67.5 acres just steps away from the Joshua Tree National Park, boasts a mirror-clad facade that creates the illusion of the home disappearing into its surrounding desert landscape. The modern glass architecture spans almost 5,500 square feet, featuring three bedrooms, four baths, and a 100-foot indoor pool. Co-listing agent Aaron Kirman, CEO of AKG Christie’s International Real Estate, describes the house as “one of the coolest houses in the world” because of its show-stopping modern architecture and the illusion created by the 10,500 square feet of wrap-around mirrored glass on the home’s exterior. Designed by film producer and current owner Chris Hanley and Frank Gehry-collaborator architect Tomas Osinski, the glass-and-steel structure boasts smooth concrete floors and steel beams that criss-cross 12-foot ceilings. Guests are treated to panoramic views of a rock-filled landscape behind transparent mirrored-glass walls, giving the sensation of living both indoors and outdoors simultaneously. The modern desert home, with its own Instagram account boasting about 35,000 followers, earns significant revenue from both its Airbnb rentals and production shoots. This unique property has a record-breaking asking price of $18 million, and both agents, Kirman and co-listing agent Matt Adamo, are confident it will deliver the highest priced sale Joshua Tree has ever seen.
