Stunning Desert Abode Fit For A James Bond Villain

When most of us dream of a luxury home of our own, our mind may wander to a penthouse in Manhattan, a villa in the South of France, or a private tropical cabana.

Once you look inside this incredible organic modern estate from the architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg, you might wish you had your own henchmen to polish the rich wood and keep the front steps swept clean of high desert sand.

The home sits on 10 acres though the building itself measures 4,643 square feet.
