The Volcano House


50451 Silver Valley Rd
Newberry Springs, CA 92365

3 BR, 3 BA

Have you ever thought to yourself: “What would it be like to live on top of a volcanic cone on 60 acres in the middle of the desert?” Well, now you can find out! The domed house above is not from a science fiction magazine, it actually does exist midway between Las Vegas and Los Angeles in Newberry Springs. Owned by SoCal legend Huell Howser, this house is surrounded by 360 degrees of stark lunar-esque landscape.



The main house has two bedrooms and two baths and open entertaining areas. The guest house has one bedroom and its own private lake. The interior reminds a little of The Chemosphere.


Realtors love to say that their listing is “one of a kind” but this is the real deal. And $750,000 seems actually kinda reasonable for this house. I’m very curious to see if anyone steps up and buys it. If you had cash to spare, would you? (And if you would, and you’re a serious buyer, email me. I would love to see this in person! I’ll drive.)
