In 1975, inspired by ancient American Indian mounds and prehistoric earthworks, the renowned modernist architect William Morgan carved the Dune House into the sand outside Jacksonville, Florida. Now it’s for sale for $1.85 million.
Tucked inside are two 1BR, 1 bath units (share it with a friend?), with ‘conversation pits’ and other original built-ins. The architect used the house as rental property. He liked to water the Dune House’s grass roof each evening to relax, his wife Bunny said. The houses on either side are also distinguished William Morgan designs.

At William Morgan’s own site, you can see the architect’s entire body of work — all futuristic but probably none so much as the Dune House.
