Innovative houses

Travel + Leisure (via MSNBC) has some interesting coverage of cool houses throughout the United States. These architectural wonders are the sort of places that are iconic, inspiring and make you wish you could live in them — even if just for one day. Here are three of our favorites. You can check out the article and slideshow for more information on these beauties.

Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Calif., was built by publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst. It sheer size (165 rooms!) and legend (it was the inspiration for the fictional Xanadu estate in the film Citizen Kane) alone make it worth visiting. The good news is that since it is now owned by the state of California, it is open for public tours.

Fallingwater in Mill Run, Penn., is the most well-known and iconic of Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses. Fitting in and designed perfectly around its natural surroundings, Fallingwater continues to inspire its numerous visitors.

The Taos Pueblo in Taos, N.M., is “one of of the country’s best-preserved (and continuously inhabited) Pueblo Indian settlements, built before 1400.” You don’t often hear of people living in American dwellings that are over 600 years old. Now that is cool.
