The most Amazing house "Rotating House"

 Watch the Rotating House 

by Carolina Buia, Shine magazine

Make Home A Haven tours this one-of-a-kind rotating round house. Eight rooms, stunning views and sunlight everywhere. But this Wilton Connecticut home’s biggest prize is its unique ability to spin with the touch of a button. It's head turning too, both inside and out.

The round shape is beautiful to look at, but this spread offers much more. I love the floor to ceiling windows that envelope you in nature and light.

The core of the home and its central spiral staircase are stationary; the rest of the house spins. It takes about 48 minutes for one complete rotation, so imagine stepping off the stairs and walking directly into your bedroom one day and into your living room the next. The same variety applies to the outdoors views.

Start breakfast overlooking a massive pond and finish breakfast overlooking a serene garden. The round motif continues throughout the house, from the fireplace to the limestone sink in the powder room. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. It sits on 4 acres and has a guest-house and an inground pool. The house is made of steel, glass and cedar shingles.

Designed by famed architect Richard T. Foster in 1968 (as a collaboration with Philip Johnson), the home is on the market right now with an asking price of $1,750,000.00.
