Here’s a truly unique offering from prolific modern architect William Krisel. Nestled right up against the fairway at the Indian Canyons Golf Resort in Palm Springs, the 4,365-square-foot home consists of five octagonal pods attached to one another, creating a maze-like floor plan.

Built in 1968, the home’s unusual layout seems like an ambitious followup to Krisel’s earlier design for Palm Springs’s famous “House of Tomorrow” (the spot where Elvis and Priscilla Presley spent their honeymoon). Its futuristic interior includes walls of glass, skylights, towering ceilings, and a pair of impressive stone fireplaces.

Featuring five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, the residence also boasts a roomy, updated kitchen and a gated entry with a pond.

The home sits on more than half an acre of land, surrounded by a curiously lush, green lawn. The grounds include multiple outdoor patios, a fire pit, and a swimming pool and spa. A large driveway leads to a two-car garage with an extra covered spot for a golf cart.

Asking price is $2.495 million.
