A Really Expensive House0

Here’s a house for someone with a lot (and I mean A LOT) of money.

The Neptus 60, designed by Naval Architect Giancarlo Zema, looks like something from a James Bond movie.  His goal was to create a cliff-side living space in harmony with nature.  And while it appears somewhat retro-futuristic, I think he’s succeeded.

The house consists of four sections:

(1) The top floor (250 square meters on two levels) is the living area:  a living room with a terrace and 3 bedrooms (with bathrooms) that overlook the water. 

(2) Go one structure down about you’ll find the observation deck with great views and a capsular layout. I can imagine many a party being held here . . .

(3) Next is the built in boat dock—which would come in handy when you needed to make a beer run during one of those parties.

(4) And lastly, we have my favorite part of the house: the underwater observation globe, complete with underwater lighting and diver lock-out features.  I don’t know about you guys, but this would be my bedroom.

The geek in me says Giancarlo Zema’s inspiration for the design of this home-on-the-water is outer space – in the form of a popular 1960s TV show:

Tell me that the top unit doesn’t look similar to the Jupiter 2 from Lost in Space.  I dare ya.

Price tag?  Not listed.  What do you think?
