Portrait of a unique home — named the most original in the USA

Hidden desert home in Scottsdale Arizona

As featured in House Beautiful, this unique home which was designed by architect Charles Johnson and built right into the surrounding granite boulders — in fact, they make up 60% of the structure. It’s currently on the market for around 4 million.

The future owners will definitely be living as one with nature in this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom house. The nine-acre property is full of interesting forms and natural accents thanks to its stucco walls, wood beams, and stone steps. And talk about unique curb appeal: An ancient petroglyph is carved into the exterior and helped the house get a place on the National Register of Historic Places.

As much as I love the craftsmanship and uniqueness, I am not sure if I would want to actually  live in this home….
