The 2,206 sq ft mid-century home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and high curved ceilings which reach up towards a central stone fireplace. The buyers will easily channel their inner Don Draper while sipping cocktails on the built-in sofas in the sunken conversation pit. A separate guesthouse sits at the bottom of the cinder cone and looks out over its own private lake. The 2-story outbuilding contains a large garage and an upstairs apartment that could, according to Sotheby’s “be the ideal caretaker’s residence”.

Commissioned by engineer and inventor Vard Wallace in 1968 and designed by architect Harold J. Bissner Jr., the house is an icon of the mid-century modern movement. Though Howser reportedly fell in love with the Volcano House the moment he saw in it 2003, he rarely used it and put it on the market for $750,000 a few years later. Unable to sell it, he later gifted the property to Chapman University.
