Huell Howser’s Volcano House

50451 Silver Valley Road
Newberry Springs, CA 92357

2 BR/2 BA

If your lifelong dream is to live in a flying saucer in the middle of the desert, this is your home.  The newly-listed Volcano House is a mid-century icon, perched on a 150-foot cinder cone, offering rare architectural elements paired with unique 360 degree views.

This incredible residence was originally commissioned in 1968 by Vard Wallace, a mechanic who built a business selling drafting machines and airplane parts during World War II.

The home was subsequently owned by Huell Howser, the late producer and host of the TV show “California’s Gold”. Howser donated the home to Chapman University in 2012, a year before he died. The university planned on using it for desert studies, astronomy, and geology pursuits but found that the location was not suitable for their needs.

The Volcano House sits on 60 acres in the Mojave Desert, approximately 45 minutes east of Barstow.
