Luxury Home Hides A Secret Feature Perfect For Space Geeks (PHOTOS)

Luxury homes are a dime a dozen in Orange County, California. But not all real estate in this upscale area has one very intriguing feature: A private star-gazing observatory with a powerful telescope installed inside. One Laguna Niguel property for sale for $3.188 million has just that -- on top of a slew of other amazing amenities, of course.

“The observatory is certainly one of the most unique amenities I have seen in a home,” the home's listing agent, Dana Wall of Prudential California Realty, told Realtor.com. The motorized telescope comes with a GPS feature to locate constellations and planets, perfect for an avid astronomy buff or even a newbie. To get to this lookout point, you ascend a spiral staircase from a stunning office with custom built-ins, a balcony and a fireplace.

If celestial bodies aren't your thing, the home also has a stellar saltwater pool, spa and fire pit out back. Not too shabby.
