The ‘Invisible House’ was designed by famed architect Tomas Osinski and the property owner Chris Hanley, a film producer behind features such as American Psycho and The Virgin Suicides.
The home took more than 5 years to plan and another decade to build.
The 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom property is cantilevered almost 100 feet off the ground and includes panoramic views of the surrounding desert landscape.
Guests can move seamlessly between the desert surrounding the property and the home’s interior.
The fully-mirrored home was completed in 2020 and famous guests such as Lizzo, U2, and Diplo have all rented the property.
The Invisible Home has a 100-foot solar pool in the living room.
Matt Adamo, one of the listing agents with AKG, told Insider that his favorite part of the house is the way it transforms between dawn and dusk. ‘The lighting in this home is out of this world.’
Hanley cultivated the minimalist design of the property himself.

The home is oriented to face east so that residents and guests can experience a truly breathtaking sunrise over the desert.
It also sits on enough land where Adamo said it is “truly impossible to imagine” another home or building going up anywhere near the property that could disturb its panoramic views.
“You’re not just buying square footage with this home,” Adamo said. “You’re buying a work of art — something that can’t be found in any other place on Earth.”
Chris Hanley and his wife Roberta describe the home as ‘an object of
entertainment and a space to facilitate conversations and interactions.’
As Warhol once said, “Land really is the best art.”
Adamo said the entire home is designed with environmental sustainability in mind, and includes a 32.4kW solar system for power.
The bed frames in both bedrooms are made out of marble.
The home also includes modern amenities like Wolf and Miele appliances in the kitchen and Gessi fixtures in the bathrooms.
The property can “shape-shift” to accommodate the personality and design preferences of its guests.
The Hanleys are also behind other famous homes such as the Honeymoon Home in Lamu, Kenya and are launching a cannabis inspired property next year called the Grow Home.
The Hanleys used to rent the property for about $2,500 per night.
Hanley has also collaborated on projects with esteemed artists such as Andy Warhol and architect Zaha Hadid.
The kitchen includes modern appliances and plenty of space to entertain.
The ‘Invisible House’ sits on 67 acres of land that runs up against Joshua Tree National Park.
The desert surrounding the home provides a sense of detachment from the rest of the world.
At night, Adamo said the facade of the home fades into the landscape which makes it look like it is part of the desert itself.
The home has a 2,000 square-foot foundation despite being more than 5,500 square feet in size.
Hanley said in a press release that the home is ‘made for the world to enjoy.’
