The Mothership Has Landed.. and It's For Sale!

A spaceship-themed house on the side of Signal Mountain in Chattanooga, TN, is for sale.

Originally built in 1970, following the cancellation of Star Trek and the moon landing, similar houses began to crop-up throughout the United States, but this is the original. An actual home and not one of the modular, movable types designed by Finnish architect, Matti Suuronen in 1968 (called Futuro Homes), the disc-shaped house has curved walls and short ceilings, along with a curved bar.

The current owner has only been there four months and did not comment on why he was selling. The agent handling the sale noted he has already received one bid for $100,000.
