This is the famous Invisible House, an architectural masterpiece in the middle of the Californian desert. 

Not only is it made out of mirrors, but it has an indoor swimming pool that takes up about 50 percent of the usable space. 

Supercar Blondie’s Sergi Galiano just got an inside look, and we can see why it’s priced at a staggering $18 million. You can watch it here!

In the middle of Joshua Tree National Park in California, this house was built by the Hollywood producer of American Psycho, Chris Hanley. 

He designed it to be covered in mirrors so it reflected the surrounding desert landscape. 

The intention behind this was to create the illusion that the house wasn’t even there.

Inside, the Invisible House is filled with completely bespoke furniture. 

It was all customized to complement the sleek, futuristic look of the house. 

In Sergi’s words, it looks “just like an alien house”, and he’s got a point.

When you walk in, you’re greeted by a 100-foot indoor pool, which covers nearly 50 percent of the 220-foot-long house. 

And while the house is incredibly long and somewhat narrow, it feels huge because the one-way mirrors appear as windows from the inside. 

As a result, every room in the house is bathed in sunlight. 

While it claims to be invisible, this three-bedroom house isn’t exactly a well-kept secret. 

The home has played host to a number of celebrities, with some even using it as a set for their music videos. 

Among them are Alicia Keys, Demi Lovato, and the Chainsmokers. 

You can rent it too, but you’ll need deep pockets. 

The Invisible House can be rented for between $3000 and $5000 per night, depending on the season. 

And as Sergi says in the video, it’s right in the middle of ‘alien country’. 

Yep, Joshua Tree apparently draws thousands of international visitors each year who gather in search of UFOs. 

So, if that’s your thing, this is the place to be.
