Property Description

Become the next caretaker of the historic 1920 Rice House! Locally known as “The Huts” it was once described as “the most unusual house in the world” in Architectural Review magazine. Working with local builder Morris C. Miller, Ethel Rice designed the home using local materials, reminiscent of a home she had lived in in Rhodesia. The unique floorplan works great for a family, but would also make an amazing AirBnB. The main house is comprised of three round brick huts, inter-connected and covered by cone-shaped roofs with expansive open ceilings. It includes the living room, master bedroom, full bath and laundry, and a second bedroom or second living room. A rectangular addition to the back provides dining and kitchen space and sits over an unfinished walkout basement. The kitchen exits onto an expansive back deck that looks over a gently sloped yard with mature trees. A fourth guest hut with half bath is detached from the main home, which works great as a bedroom or office.
