Tower House

The world is round, and yet most houses are square. It really makes you think.

Given our propensity for deep thought, we stared for hours and hours at listings of homes and wondered if there were houses that didn't fit the square home stereotype. The universe responded with a resounding yes! We found round homes for sale, because not everyone can conform to living in a box, man.

We now offer our roundup (pun intended) of these 10 edgeless domiciles on the market across the country.

Address: 41915 Tonopah Rd, Rancho Mirage CA
Price: $4,500,000
Circular thinking: The aliens have landed. This white structure in the California desert is an example of futuristic design that makes the Palm Springs metro a mecca for Mid-Century Modern homes.

Address: 31091 Monterey St, Laguna Beach, CA
Price: $4,950,000
Circular thinking: Pick up a round house and you can also bag 360-degree views -- if there are windows in almost every room in the house. The "Round House of Laguna Beach" offers spectacular views of the ocean from the kitchen, pantry, wet bar, and living room. Bonus: It'll seem like you're on the set of " Laguna Beach."

Circular thinking: A sculpture in the round? Not surprisingly, the "Tower House" was designed by an artist. The carousel-like space is full of fun and funky details. The spiral staircase makes absolute sense in this space, and the artist's sculptures pop up on the property, too.
