Out of this world Sonoma house, with its own observatory, asks $7.9 million

Close encounters of the—ahem—chicest kind

Conceived by acclaimed San Francisco architect Darryl Roberson, founder of Studios Architecture, as his family's private retreat, this Sonoma home features four bedrooms, four and a half baths, and, in total, approximately 5,748 square feet.

But we’re burying the lede.

This custom construction also comes with its own observatory, complete with its own high-powered telescope. An ideal spot to catch the stars, view Venus, or—better yet—bear witness to a flying saucer.

The approximately 840 square-foot professional-grade observatory doubles as a guest house.

This guest home, however, is almost as nice as the main house, a massive contemporary construction on 20 oak-filled private acres overlooking the Sonoma, with views to Mt. Diablo and San Pablo Bay. It features exposed beams, modern landscaping, decks, pool, and more.

Asking is an astronomical $7,900,000.
