Agent: Days are Numbered for this Bonkers UFO Bunker

New, 6 comments

Out in Kennesaw, this midcentury home that looks like a bomb bunker from outer space — or a flapjack in mid-flight — is in danger of becoming bulldozer bait. Unless a golf-loving eccentric with a penchant for whacky architecture saves it, that is. Custom built in 1962, this three-bedroom geometric free-for-all is on the market for the first time ever. It sits next to the No. 10 green at Pinetree Country Club, just off Interstate 75 and practically neighbors with Kennesaw State University. According to the listing agent, who calls this relic "probably (a) tear down," the selling point is the 1 acre of land on a lake, where one could "build your dream home" for the up-front cost of $249,900. Homes don't get much sturdier than this, because it's 100 percent concrete, for both good and ill. It has an expansive back patio, under the cover of what looks like the Hollywood Bowl. Almost every square foot could use some 21st Century attention, but in a way, wiping the slate clean here would be a shame.
