One-of-a-Kind Home in Carmel, California

Photo by: Zillow This unique stucco home in California's Big Sur region is situated 300 feet above the Pacific Ocean. It recently went under contract after being listed at $2,995,000.

We love a home that defies convention, and this cliff-side house in California's Big Sur region certainly qualifies as unconventional. The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath curiosity is perched on a cliff at Yankee Point, high above the Pacific. Designed in 1969 by architect Mark Mills, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, the home boasts an unusually curvaceous stucco exterior that is matched by an equally unusual interior of rounded rooms. Circular and elliptical windows abound, offering views of the ocean, and skylights allow plenty of natural light to filter in. See our gallery below for a peek inside.

The home recently went under contract, but it was on the market for $2.995 million. In case you're wondering how a new owner would ever find the furniture to complete this home's feng shui, note that many of the appointments come with the house. The furniture was designed by Michael Taylor, who Architectural Digest has hailed as one of the 20 greatest designers of all time.
