Designed by architect Robert Venturi for his mother in 1964, the Vanna Venturi house in the Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia is known for it’s pitched roof, random curves, and a staircase that leads to nowhere.

The house was designed as a departure from modernism, which was so popular at the time, and is hailed as the first postmodern house in the country.

The 3 bedroom, 2 bath home originally hit the market at $1,750,000 in July 2015. Since then the house has been looked at many times, but has yet to draw a buyer, even though it was named one of the 10 homes that changed America and is considered iconic in its own right.

So if you feel like owning a piece of history, the Vanna Venturi house is available and primed for the buying, now listed at $1,500,000.
