Designed by American Psycho film producer Chris Hanley and architect Tomas Osinski, the Invisible House holds true to its name.
Located on 90 private acres bordering Joshua Tree National Park, it blends in with the surrounding desert thanks to its mirrored glass exterior.
From certain vantage points, the house resembles a skyscraper placed on its side.
From other angles, it's practically invisible. "If you're just in the right place ... the house disappears," Hanley told Business Insider.
Hanley said the view is different every day.
For the past year, Hanley and his wife, Roberta, have made the home available for corporate events, film and photoshoots, weddings, and retreats.
Rates start roughly at $1,000 per hour for events and $5,000 per day for small-group getaways.
Celebrity guests of the Invisible House include Demi Lovato, who stayed there last weekend with her boyfriend, according to a recent Instagram post.
The interior of the home is minimalistic with floor-to-ceiling windows.
Each of the four bedrooms boasts unobstructed views of the property, en-suite bathrooms ...
... and sliding glass doors that open up to the outside.
The master suite has a free-standing tub ...
... and another has a glass shower.
The central living space includes a 100-foot-long pool and a mix of seating areas.
At one end of the pool is a modern kitchen with two ovens, a refrigerator, and a freezer.
At the other is a white wall that serves as a film projection screen.
Hanley told Business Insider that one of his favorite details about the home is when the changing light outside integrates with the pool lights, which shift between blue, red, green, turquoise, and violet.
"If you're swimming or watching the news on TV while you're swimming, and the lights are changing — that's a great thrill," he said.
