National Treasure II: Live In Your Very Own Pyramid

New, 15 comments

We don't know about you but nothing evokes the hot desert landscape of ancient Egypt like the...San Gabriel Mountains? Right? Who's with us? So obviously, the only rational housing choice is a pyramid. Actually, we can't hate something so bizarrely nonsensical. It belongs in a National Treasure sequel. We're already devising a Freemason conspiracy cooked up in the Zen Garden. According to the listing for this two-bedroom, two-bath 3,327 square foot home, the property features a master suite with private patio, a "large Egyptian motif bathroom," a circular front door, a hot tub in the pergola and there's a bonus one-bedroom, one-bath guest house. The property is for lease for $3,500 per month. It's also for sale. The last time the house was sold America was in the first Gulf War, a Kennedy was accused of rape, and we were all wearing flannel just as Jane's Addiction disbanded. Ah, the good old days. Last sale price: $450,000 in 1991. Today's asking price: $1.098 million or $330 per square foot.
