In a small, and quiet town in Connecticut, one adventurous designer went ahead and crafted homes that looked like spaceships.

30 years ago, people did not take to the idea well, with one local threatening to kill Wilfred Armster, the architect. Armster had been given a very clear yet simple instruction, create “something wild” for the site of a defunct restaurant in Guilford, CT, but his copper-clad structure was not a hit with the townsfolk.

“This is a very staid, classic New England town,” explained Barbara Carney, an agent with William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. “There was a lot of uproar, but now it’s an iconic treasure.”

And for the first time in a long time, one of the spaceships have come up for sale. The even better thing is, the affordability of them. To snap up one of the spaceship’s, which is positioned as one of only 13 condos, it will only set you back $349,900.

The unit has 1 bedroom, 2 baths and treehouse-type views of pine trees in one direction and Long Island Sound in the other. Below deck is a heated, 2-car garage.
