Upstate New York's Out-Of-This-World Spinning Saucer House

Nestled in the dense woods of New Paltz in Upstate New York, this house looks more like an Amish-built space ship than a home. Dubbed Domespace, the 2,300-square-foot, three-bedroom escape is the only French kit home of its kind to be constructed in the United States. Best of all, the entire structure rotates at the push of a button, to best suit the seasons and the collection of solar energy. This mix of French quirk and eco-friendly design might have ended up looking out of place in these parts, but thanks to the use of rustic materials it manages to blend in quite well. Set on a 28-acre plot, the circular abode boasts plenty of luxe features, including 40-foot ceilings at the peak, a spiral staircase, and eco-friendly bamboo flooring. Featured as Zillow's House of the Week, this otherworldly home is listed for $1.2M.
