Property Description

There are only a few spaces in the world that capture architectural brilliance, interior design magnificence, and environmental harmony all at once. Now is the chance to own something truly remarkable, seemingly unattainable. Welcome to the Invisible House, 67.5 acres of pure tranquility in Joshua Tree, California. Designed by film producer, Chris Hanley, and Frank Gehry collaborator, Tomas Osinski, the Invisible House is built to directly connect inhabitants with the environment through a mirrored glass exterior that seamlessly bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor space, masking itself as an indistinguishable component of the dramatic, rocky, desert landscape Joshua Tree is renowned for. But it’s not just about how the home functions within its environment, it’s also about what it provides for the residental holistic human experience that evokes a feeling of natural peace and wonderment through a truly unique inTruterior design concept that combines the beauty of the desert with luxurious modern function. The conversation piece of the interior 100-foot, HTP solar heated swimming pool running along the west wall, offers a natural indoor element built for pure relaxation, and is equipped with radiant ambient lighting that both illuminates the landscape and communicates with the constellations above. A world-class chef’s kitchen features dual ovens, separate refrigerator and freezer, storage, gleaming white marble surfaces, Boffi fixtures, and Miele, Sub Zero, and Wolf appliances all anchored upon sleek and smooth concrete flooring and accented by minimalist lines. Each spacious living area featuring modern Flos lighting is connected to an entire wall of sliding glass doors all opening to the breathtaking landscape, offering a one-of-a-kind living experience that blurs the line between home and nature. Awaken every morning in each of the large three bedrooms to sweeping views of the landscape all equipped with sliding doors, as well as en-suite Boffi bathrooms with a custom all-glass exposed shower in bath #3. A large primary suite offers a private sanctuary and includes a 5-star-resort-inspired bath with soaking tub, floating vanities, and rain shower. For the true visual artist, a massive 224 square foot white wall at the end of the pool is designed for screening films or projecting photographs. The 5,490 square foot living space offers plenty of room for private enjoyment or entertaining, measuring 225 long, by 24’11 wide, with a facade height of 21, and a soaring interior interior height of 12. The remarkable, energy efficient space also features 10,500 of Vitro spectrally selective Solarcool blue glazing with a nominal 12mm airspace, all Title 24 approved. Other modern amenities include 800 amps of electric service; a Vision Coolroof with a 38R value, and closed cell foam insulation; 92 Sunpower 360w, USA-made PV solar panels with Enphase micro inverters all on an IH smart system; 3 Tesla 13kw Powerwall Batteries, and online smart system with solar panels; HTP solar thermal heat panels featuring 20 4 x 10 panels providing 40,000 BTU’s each of solar hot water for pool and interior heating; a Halo whole house water filtration system; Starlink high broadband internet with two additional broadband systems including Mojave Wi-Fi and Flashbyte; Orsini HEPA filters for dust, bacteria, and virus eradication, Raypak 27kW pool heater; and two Oxygen ozone pool filters and UV pool filter. Set adjacent to rocks for passive solar heating and cooling and bordered by Section 5 Federal National Park land and a Section 6 BLM, gated nature/tortoise reserve, this once-in-a-lifetime property delivers an idyllic balance of serenity and wonder. Realize the pinnacle of architectural and visual mastery and become one with the environment that surrounds you. The Invisible House offers an unparalleled human experience in one of California’s most iconic locales surrounded by a thriving and vibrant community of artists, naturalists, and dreamers
