Bored with the usual "house" shaped home? Do you wish you could have a baseball diamond in your backyard, rather than, well, a backyard? Then this list of Colorado's ten most unique and unusual homes for sale, according to Realtor.com is for you.

Sure, the estates in Cherry Hills Village are big, but do they have a personal mini-golf course? Actually, all the Cherry Hills Village homes probably come with a full-size golf course, but we digress. How about a home that is built into a rock (see home No. 5)? Or a home with an indoor pool -- with waterfall included (No. 9)? How about a sword room? You know, for your sword collection (No. 6)?

These ten homes are expensive -- the priciest tops out at nearly $20 million and the cheapest will still set you back $4 million -- but at least for the price you don't just get luxury, you get character, something unique that sets your home apart from the rest of the mega-mansions. And, really, if you're going to spend $20 million dollars on home, shouldn't a baseball field come with it?

Take a look inside of ten of Colorado's most unique and unusual homes for sale:
