It is currently listed for sale at $875,000. This “desert retreat, private museum and residence” has 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in just over 1500 square feet.

The minimalist cube house is as captivating on the inside as the outside…

It’s so clean and perfect – I’m having trouble imagining how humans can live here!

All of the home’s windows frame the most vivid views… no window treatments needed out in the vast desert!

I love it A LOT. But it is a tad over my budget. I also have an inkling that the home would not be very kid-friendly. (Just a hunch)
