Built in 1958 by American architect Andrew Geller, who earned his reputation designing sculptural beach houses in some of the country's toniest communities (think the Hamptons), the Frank House has now found itself back on the market. Asking $1.475M, the home is notorious for being the setting of a quite commercially successful soft-core adult film called "Boys in the Sand," which was reviewed favorably by the New York Times when it hit the silver screen in 1970. But, beyond its bawdy past, the house itself is quite a class act. Apparently, its sloped, ziggurat-reminiscent form was inspired by Mayan pyramids.
