Noted science fiction author Robert Heinlein designed and built this house –
Together with his wife Virginia, Heinlein lived in the house for 20 years, from 1967 to 1987.
A news article from 1985, calling it a “futuristic round house,” said that its 80 feet of book shelves displayed Heinlein’s own works, translated into 29 languages. It also noted that the author, “whose writings advocate space exploration and open marriage, has filled his home with photographs from the U.S. space program and artistic renderings of lithe women.”
The house is located in the Bonny Doon neighborhood of Santa Cruz, California.
