Buy This Spacecraft Villa in the Netherlands For $4M


Plunked down in a private forest clearing in Beekbergen and looking for all the world like some sort of alien spaceship, this futuristic villa is currently on the market for €2,950,000 (or $4,080,221). Built in 2007 by the Dutch firm Factor Architecten, the 8,600-square-foot, five-bedroom home is mostly made from prefabricated concrete and glass panels, with a rounded, thatched roof punctured by porthole windows. Inside, the open space is sunny and bright, thanks to the large, sloping windows and open floor plan. While overall quite minimalist, a few luxe details—like a indoor pool, glass elevator, and extremely groovy free-standing fireplace—jazz it up into what the brokerbabble calls a "remarkable place to live, in which everything you normally find in a home has been touched with exclusiveness." Outside, the secluded, six-acre grounds offer a tennis court, stables, and a greenhouse. Do climb aboard, below:
