Behind the doors of this "custom," yet seemingly cookie-cutter mansion in pricey, master-planned Laguna Niguel, lies a definitively unique feature: a "commercial-grade telescope" in a private observatory. The owners have spent "Over $450,000 in upgrades since 2010-11 to perfect an already gorgeous home," according to the listing (via the LA Times), but a large portion of that probably went toward putting that star-gazing equipment in place. The 6,073-square-foot, four-bedroom house also comes with a saltwater pool with waterfall, a fire pit, four-car garage, wetbar, and built-in outdoor barbecue. The property last sold in 2010 for $2.75 million, according to Redfin; it's now asking $3.188 million. There's a potential sale in the works, but it's still accepting backup offers.
