If you’re looking for a home that really stands out, take a look at these seven strange luxury homes the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing recently highlighted. Each property is one-of-a-kind, boasting unique architectural features along with luxurious details.


  • A haunted Welsh castle. A Welsh castle built in 1460 can be yours for about $1.3 million. It may or may not come with ghosts.
  • Floating houseboat. Formerly known as the “Chapel on the Bay,” this home used to be a wedding chapel. After a redesign, it’s now a two-bedroom, two-bath houseboat – complete with a 30-foot steeple and soaring stained-glass windows.
  • Vaudeville theater. Located in Los Angeles, this home has a red velvet-covered living area. It’s currently advertised on Airbnb.
  • California treehouse. An ideal home for those wanting to be close to nature, this treehouse home has an ocean view.
  • Converted water tower. This property, located in England, was once an abandoned water tower. It has six bedrooms, five baths, a home gym and a rooftop terrace.
  • Cube with views. Minimalists will love this home in France, which has solar panels and a “green” roof.
  • Las Vegas doomsday bunker. Located underground, this 15,000-square-foot Las Vegas hideaway sits under a 2,311-square-foot house complete with pool and waterfall.
