A new house just hit the market in Florida, and while that’s a routine enough event, the fact that it’s rare and looks like it’s about to levitate into the sky is decidedly not so routine. This UFO-esque house is a unique Florida oddity, and the more you learn about it, the cooler it becomes. If you’ve got the budget for it, this super cool UFO home for sale in Florida could be yours to whiz off to a galaxy far, far away in.
If there was ever a real-life house that looked like it belonged on Tatooine, it’s the Key Largo UFO home. Architect nerds may recognize the work of Peter Vander Klout, who designed quite a few of these spaceship-looking homes throughout the Sunshine State in the 70s.
Round and concrete, the unique design found inspiration from the 70’s obsession with the space age and what our world could look like in the future. Today, as Orlando Weekly reports, barely a handful remain.
The Key Largo home sports 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, plus a concrete dock and boat ramp where it sits on the canal front, totaling 1,825 square feet on a .28 acre lot.
A bit of a fixer-upper, the home is a historical curiosity that could be loved by the right owner.
The interior is pretty bare-bones, leaving a lot of opportunity for the next owner to give it some TLC and truly make it their own.
So just how many "Glacactic Credits" will you need for this almost-spaceship?
The listing is asking for $899,000. You may have to bet on quite a few pod races to garner up that cash, but it’ll totally be worth it if you love this unique gem!
