Located in Prescott, Arizona, the “Falcon Nest” was designed by architect Sukumar Pal, AIA and stands at the base of Thumb Butte Mountain. The home, towering at 124 feet tall (only 43 feet shorter than Niagara Falls) and set against the Prescott National Forest, offers stunning panoramic views through its large glass rooms.

Pal claims it’s “the tallest house in the world,” reports The Show KJZZ. Built in 1994 as a secondary residence for Pal and his family, the Falcon Nest was designed with passive solar technologies and “unique and alternative power.” The listing says its design “accommodates Holistic and Green Living mindfulness.” The 3-bedroom, 4-bath abode offers 120-mile visibility to the San Francisco Peaks, Humphrey’s Peak, and Bill Williams Mountain. It features a 2,000-square foot solarium, a hydraulic elevator, and sits on 1.08 acres.

The 10-story home is currently priced at $1.5 million USD.
