If you have ever desired to live under a rock, we have the perfect property for you. Christened “the most original home in America” by author and former Neiman Marcus CEO Stanley Marcus, the world legendary Boulder House is on the market for $4.2 million.
Nestled in a 1.6-billion-year-old granite boulder, the property is approximately 4,380 square feet. It sits on 8.99 acres of land in Scottsdale, Arizona, and features three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a kitchen island, formal dining area, a built-in library bookcase, a separate den, and a separate guest entrance. The master bathroom not only has your standard double sinks, shower, and tub, but also a bidet.
Positioned on undisturbed dessert, the property features outcropping of granite boulders which make up 60 percent of the structure. The walls, floors, and ceilings alternating between stucco and rock, create an earthy feel. The first floor’s great room is made up of color-infused concrete and can accommodate up to 80 guests.
In addition, the home includes several fireplaces and a number of balconies to enjoy scenic views of the mountain and the surrounding dessert, and is boarded by the Whisper Rock golf course.
The posh property was designed by well-known architect Charles Johnson and was constructed in 1980. The home has earned a place on the National Register of Historic Places.
The asking price for the unusual home nestled in the dessert is $4.2 million.
