Built in 1968, architect Harold Bissner Jr. created a home, reminding of a spaceship based on a lonely planet.“The Volcano House” owes its name from the 150-foot volcanic cinder cone, located in Newberry Springs, California, about halfway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
The 2,206 square-foot mid-century home shows sliding glass doors leading to multiple viewing decks. For an even better view, there is an observation platform on top of the dome that allows a 360-degree view over the desert. The interior features an open floor plan and vaulted ceilings. Two full bathrooms and two bedrooms are filled with sunlight through the sized floor-to-ceiling windows. The design was inspired by the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, a nuclear plant in northwestern San Diego county.
