The structure is built into a hillside, with most of the home below ground, so all that is visible is the shark's fin and mouth. The interior is very organic in feel, thanks to curving walls and very little furniture (everything is built-in). Bright, twisting tunnels connect each room.
Aguilar shares the home with his wife, Paloma, and daughters, who lamented the lack of any doors.
We can only imagine how you'd explain to the deliveryman how to find the front door. Check out the video above and prepare to have your mind blown.
This isn't the most unique home we've ever seen. Check these cave dwellings out:
Our first stop is in Gerome, Turkey, where the cave dwellings of antiquity still serve as modern-day homes. A natural wonder rich with history and tradition, the Cappadocia region continues to use these cavernous structures for day-to-day living and even offers hotels for tourists to live the experience.
In Santorini, Greece, the village homes are called "yposkafa", or "incave homes," structures that were literally built into large boulders. These sprawling cave homes (which are still lived-in today) are more than impressive. Hotels such as the Aris Caves can even accommodate a stay in one of these beautiful spaces.
Loire Valley has had cave dwellings for quite some time. Referred to as "troglodytes", these carved out spaces continue to serve as modern-day homes. For a full tour of one of these caverns, be sure to follow this man as he walks you through his humble abode in the accompanying video.
You'll probably be surprised to learn that Spain's Canary Islands have some of the most well-preserved cave dwellings. Found in the Guayadeque Ravine, these cave communities (yes, these caverns are used as churches and restaurants as well as homes) serve as major tourist attractions.
An estimated 30 million people live in cave dwellings in Yanan, China--and they're quite happy with their lot. Some spaces are even equipped with modern utilities such as electricity. For more information, watch the accompanying video and be sure to check out the LA Times' coverage on these fascinating communities.
This magnificent, earthy residence wasn't originally suitable for building a home. But when owner Catherine Clark found out her neighbor could start construction on the site, she took advantage of the opportunity and made the Bisbee Cave Home possible.
And of course, we could never leave out Fred and Wilma's Stone Age digs! Dick Clark's "Flintstones Home" is certainly one of the most unique living spaces we've seen, and if you're interested in the residence you'll be happy to know that it's up for grabs!
