The home is oriented to face east so that residents and guests can experience a truly breathtaking sunrise over the desert.

“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.”

entertainment and a space to facilitate conversations and interactions.’Invisible House bedroom with ceiling height windows surrounding a bed in the middle of the roomAs Warhol once said, “Land really is the best art.”
