Real Estate Porn: Geometric Homes That Think Outside of the Box

These angular abodes in California, Washington, Spain, and the U.K. are a chip off the Frank Gehry block.
With more facets than a cut gem and just as many cool perks, the architects of these angular homes were either channeling their inner Frank Gehry or flat-out copping his style. We just hope the grandfather of extreme facades takes it as a complement.

You wish you lived here.

Location: Origami-style home in Rancho Mirage, California
Price: $5,999,775
Size: 5,200 square feet
Key selling points: With beveled surfaces and sharp angles everywhere, this home looks like it materialized from an episode of The Jetsons. Luckily, you don't have to wait until the space age to take advantage of its infinity pool, outdoor entertainment center, indoor water path, wall-to-wall fireplace, and access to next-level perks like room service, a spa, gym, and a steakhouse.

Location: Countryside contemporary in Yalding, England
Price: $1,817,720
Size: 3,700 square feet
Key selling points: English architect Mark Heywood, who has also designed high-profile spaces like Lord's Cricket Ground's media room and the Birmingham Selfridges, gave the classic country home a face lift, complete with a suspended fireplace and sliding glass walls. Still, he left the home's key original features untouched: you'll find two reception parlors, a cloakroom, and a winding private drive leading to the half-acre woodland parcel.

Location: Geometric beach house in Alicante, Spain
Price: $3,409,750

Key selling points: Sun yourself on the nearby beach of San Juan, lower your handicap on the golf course, then saunter onto your terrace or the pool's ample deck, hit your private gym and sauna, and clean up in the master suite's hydro massage bathtub. Just don't invite the boss over—they'll never pity you for staying home sick again.
