Gallery: Huell Howser’s California House is Perched Atop a 150-foot Vol...

The guest house has one bedroom and its own private lake.

The Volcano House was originally built back in 1968, and designed by architect Harold J. Bissner Jr. Measuring 1,800 square feet, the main house has two bedrooms and two baths and open entertaining areas. The guest house has one bedroom and its own private lake. A central fireplace provides a focal point for the abode, and a sunken conversation pit gives away its mod-arch, 1960s roots. A fully-equipped kitchen sits to one side of the space and is constructed to feature classic wood cabinetry.

The house is sited near Interstate 15 (near Barstow) and the surrounding area offers quirky attractions, including the Buffalo Ranch, Big Al’s Pistachio Ranch, the Ostrich Farm and the Bagdad Café.

    It is closer to I-40 than I-15. It’s about 30 minutes from Barstow. I live in Newberry, have been to the dome house, (inside even). Mr. Hauser donated that house to Chapman College. Are they selling it now?
