The space

The Off-grid itHouse is an architecturally significant house, recently noted by Dwell as one of the 'Best Homes in America' and in the Los Angeles Times as one of the best houses of all time in Southern California. The Off-grid itHouse is one of 10 IT Houses built in California, which have received much acclaim such as the Western Home award sponsored by Sunset magazine. Also noted as one of the top 10 airbnb rentals worldwide. This is the prototype for the pre-engineered system known as the IT House. The house is 100% off-grid, powered by solar panels for energy and hot water, and is located in a pristine remote valley in the beautiful California high desert. The house observes key green principals of smaller footprint, minimal disturbance to the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape, use of renewable resources, and living simply and minimally. The setting of the house is remote and serene, a quiet refuge from everything, free from distractions. Amazing views and vistas in all directions. Perfect for design or green aficionados, writers or those needing a secluded quiet getaway.

The Off-grid itHome is so stunning. You really have to see it in person with all new amenities and modern structure. We really enjoyed shooting at this property and would recommend it to any one for a photo shoot!

Beautiful location, perfect spot to relax and switch off. The house was great - the views even better! The sunsets and sunrises were out of this world and it felt like we were sleeping in a planetarium with all the stars.

I stayed here with my parents for 2 nights. The views are stunning. The beds are cozy. It was a bit of a adjustment to roll with the solar power of the house but waking up to the first light of the day, the silence, the stars in the evening are amenities in and off themselves. Host was clear and responsive. I’ll try and stay again when I can.

This place is almost unbelievable. Never seen anything like it and probably never will. The most beautiful home in the most incredible setting. If you appreciate great design, beautiful landscapes and want a memorable experience book this house.
