Technically, the wooden sine wave you're looking at is called a double conoid formation, but however you describe the motion-capture covering of this 1960 midcentury home by architect Jules Gregory, it likely can't beat the reality of such a unique profile. This mod four-bedroom in New Jersey, set on 10 acres in the Delaware River Valley about 50 miles from Philadelphia, was named one of the 10 Best Houses in America by Architectural Record the year after it was built. Original constructed for roughly $30,000 as a home/studio for the architect himself, it contains a small, conventional 1,200-square-foot workspace across the yard from the main home, which boasts an undulating ceiling of fir beams, a sunken living room and glass walls.

If the size and clear view of the landscape isn't enough of a selling point, it was once placed on the market with a set of custom Nakashima furniture and lighting available for an additional cost (Nakashima worked nearby in New Hope, Pennsylvania). Placed on the market for $1.25M in 2012 by Benjamin Storck, a midcentury furniture dealer, demand for the singular home has definitely bent the price curve down. It's currently asking $695,000.
