flying saucer home

The home is where your heart is, and if your heart is into space fiction, this very unusual flying saucer shaped home located in Chattanooga, Tennessee is for you. Everything about this home, screams extremism from the swinging seventies. Yes, that is when this home first built, in 1970 by Claude King and his folks taking inspiration from Star Wars and Neil Armstrong who had just then, landed on the moon. And if you were already fretting hearing this, relax, the home has got a complete renovation making it as new as it ever was. To step into this once futuristic home, you need to first traverse the retractable stairway which pops out at the touch of a button, from the belly of this Flying saucer home. The home in itself sounds conventional with 3 levels having 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a watering hole. It is from here the unconventionality returns, and return it does with a bang, in the very unusual curved bar which screams out this line – I am here only for the beer.

From here, the curves just don’t seem to go away with the Sloped curvy low ceiling, short walls and even a custom bathtub. to give it a dash of U.F.O realism, the controls of the electronics, though unusually retro now were very futuristic when the home was first built. To take in the picturesque Tennessee mountains and riverside, you have the rectangular windows which are all around the house. And if you want to move in to this very unusual life space, hurry, the Chattanooga Flying Saucer House has already got the $100,000 bid on the place.
