Ae you in the market for a new house, but don’t want the same thing that everyone else is getting? Are you looking for something truly unique? Well, this home might be the one for you especially if you’ve always fancied living like a Bond villain.
Looking at these pictures, you might think that this is a movie set, but it’s a very real home. And this villain-worthy headquarters is on the market right now.
The house perches atop a 150-foot cinder cone.
This formation is actually the geological corpse of an extinct volcano.
This dome-shaped home comes with an open floor plan and some impressive panoramic views.
And sunsets up here are absolutely phenomenal.
Located about 45 miles east of Barstow, California, the Volcano House used to belong to California’s Gold producer and host Huell Howser.
It sits on 60 acres of Mojave Desert land, and has some pretty stunning views of the arid landscape. It comes with two bedrooms and two baths, as well as a separate garage and upstairs apartment the perfect lodging for your villainous minions!
The observation deck is great for taking in the view…
…and keeping an eye on approaching superheroes.
This view is a nice trade-off for the fact that the home is in the middle of nowhere.
And a remote location really is best for hatching plans for world domination.
Flash floods are common in these parts, so sometimes, you even have waterfront property!

Of course, a house like this won’t be cheap. The current asking price is $650,000. But if you’re a supervillain, you can always just hold the world hostage to get some funds together. While the house is still on the market and looking for a permanent owner, it’s also currently open to the public for vacation rentals, events, and photo shoots.
Even if you’re not a supervillain yet, you can at least pretend to be one for a little while.
