California’s Mojave Desert hides an undiscovered architectural gem-a luxurious stone house that looks like it was made for a fashionable Bond villain. Organic architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg (79) designed the house in Joshua Tree for a couple, artist Bev Doolittle and her husband Jay Doolittle, who are now selling it for $3 million.

The wooden ceiling creates a beautiful sense of movement with its undulating pattern of waves that rhythmically guide the light through the space.
