Tour the incredible holiday house that mirrors the Californian desert and has its own mountain

By Jill Pole

Invisible House is a mirrored 22-story horizontal skyscraper that virtually disappears into the desert landscape that surrounds it.

For $2,500 a night (€2,100), you and 7 friends will have 90 acres (36 hectares) all to yourselves, not to mention a 1,200m mountain and access to Joshua Tree National Park in southeastern California.

The house was designed by a film producer and an artist to help guests connect with nature. Features such as floor-to-ceiling sliding doors bring the outside in, while walking trails on the surrounding land allow you to get up-close with nature.

The owners say the property was built to "float over the rocks" and have minimal impact on the landscape. They say the property's footprint is 'close to zero' as it is powered by electricity and built with environmentally-friendly materials.

Guests have use of a 1-bedroom home just next to the main house. Known as the OMD Prefab, it was moved from from its original home on Venice Beach and was also designed with green credentials in mind.
