That is, you could use it as a villain's lair because it's uniquely sited. The Volcano House in California's Mojave Desert was built in 1970 by Vard Wallace, an engineer who patented the first skateboard. Later, it was owned by Huell Howser, the late public television show host of California's Gold. Now the home that looks like a crashed flying saucer turned into a luxury home is for sale. The asking price is $650,000, which is pretty good for an up-and-coming villain looking for a base of operations.
The house features 360º windows, which could help you detect any unauthorized visitors quickly. There's also a private lake, which is perfect for a submersed death ray. You can see more photos at LA Curbed.
