UnReal Estate of the Week: Modern Mansions

In honor of May the Fourth, otherwise known as “Star Wars Day” (May the Fourth be with you … get it?), we’re featuring homes for sale with a space-age look. The force is strong in these modern mansions. Each has a stunning architectural design that makes it anything but a clone. If you can’t wait for the new “Star Wars: Episode VII,” directed by J.J. Abrams, then one of these homes  may be a perfect fit for you.

The Circle Is Now Complete

Modern Mansion Circle Home

Address: 6375 Gayton Pl
City: Malibu, CA
Price: $1,500,000
Listed by: Lisa DiMercurio, RE/MAX Estate Properties

With its round shape and a patio that ends in a V-shape, this is the closest you’ll come to a home shaped like the Millennium Falcon. According to the listing, it used to be the water tower for Malibu, and was transformed into a home in 1981 by architect Doug Rucker. The upper deck has a 360-degree view of Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean. Get ready to channel the force, and your wallet: This home is up for auction on June 7, with bids starting at $1.5 million.

Your Eyes Can Deceive You

Star Wars Homes Modern Living Room

Address: 6 Savannah Ridge Dr
City: Frisco, TX
Price: $1,490,000
Listed by: Michael Sweat, REALHome Services and Solution

The exterior of this contemporary estate has a unique roof line and doorway, but is otherwise fairly unassuming. However, the interior is out of this world. The homeowners who built it were fans of monochrome in some rooms and psychedelic neon in others. The living room features a staircase that looks almost pixelated, and there are custom-built geometric shapes protruding from the wall. Custom glass, tile and ceilings throughout the home make it truly one of a kind. The listing photos have to be seen to be believed.

Obi Want It

Star Wars Homes Exterior Lines

Address: 122 Shu Swamp Rd
City: Locust Valley, NY
Price: $1,275,000
Listed by: Karen Albucker, Coldwell Banker Residential

Unlike the last home, the exterior of this estate is very dramatic, while the interior appears to be a typical family home. It was built in 1983 and designed by Mojo Stumer & Associates, who are world-renowned for their sleek and innovative work in private residences. This home is surrounded by lush green landscaping, but if it had a little more sand (and a domed roof), we could picture it in Mos Eisley.

That’s No Moon; It’s a Window

Address: 6542 Turner Way
City: Dallas, TX
Price: $1,375,000
Listed by: Susie Swanson, Dave Perry-Miller & Associates

It’s easy to get delusions of grandeur in a place like this. As the listing description states, this home is truly a work of art! The unique design and geometric shapes really make it stand out on the block. The modern design extends throughout the home, including in the expansive home theater and kitchen. The exterior windows remind us of the cockpits of capital starships. For $1.375 million, you can be the captain of this estate!

You’ll Find Yourself Floating Home

Star Wars Homes Triangular Shape

Address: 7000 Macapa Dr
City: Los Angeles, CA
Price: $8,888,000
Listed by: Jason Oppenheim, The Oppenheim Group

This architectural “tour de force” is set to host the American Institute of Architects’ Los Angeles tour. Its triangular shape reminds us of the Star Destroyer, but it’s more like a star discoverer, with views of the Hollywood sign and city skyline throughout. The multilevel pool looks like something straight out of Cloud City. The lucky owner of this home will certainly feel on top of the world.
