Tucked away on 10 pristine and completely private acres in the Mojave desert, this modern home offers the epitome of sleek form and function in a majestic desert landscape. Each room in this glass and steel house features sliding doors onto decks and patios to ensure an easy flow between indoor and outdoor living.
Mid-century modern design highlights the interior furnishings. The house comes equipped with all the latest technology to make your stay comfortable while affording the rare experience of absolute solitude and privacy in a natural sanctuary.
This unique home, designed by Blue Sky Building Systems, was built in 2011 and has been featured in several publications. In August 2011, Blue Sky Building Systems was awarded the R&D Award from the Architects Institute of America.

The original owner/ builder says:
'I loved the idea of building a state-of-the-art modern home on this incredible 10-acre property without marring the landscape.
The Rock Reach area is simply stunning, and the complete privacy of the setting makes it feel like a private nature reserve. There are tremendous hiking and exploring opportunities to enjoy by stepping out the front door.
And yet, Los Angeles in only two hours away, and Palm Springs just 40 minutes. The best of both worlds…'
Blue Sky's revolutionary light-gauge steel design and Eco-friendly building methods ensured that this house would leave the smallest footprint possible on the environment.
With so much of the house being glass, one can see the blue sky, the massive boulders and the desert landscape from every point in the house.
The property is so private that one can step out of the shower and dry off in the sunshine.
This house will appeal to couples or friends who want to escape the busy, noisy world for a spell of true peace and quiet in a beautiful sunny desert sanctuary with all the comforts of home. Ideal for writers.
