For the Space Geek


If you know the solar mass of a black hole, understand the Chandrasekhar limit and can pick out a Bok globule, perhaps this home is for you. The house includes an enormous high-powered telescope, and with the home’s coastal Southern California location, you’re bound to have plenty of clear nights perfect for star gazing.

For the ‘Star Wars’ Geek


You’ve reached ultimate “Star Wars” geek status when your collection has been lent out to the father of “Star Wars” — George Lucas. This Indiana home includes a top-to-bottom themed bar, complete with full-size figurines and a mural so lifelike it would confuse Obi-Wan.

For the Superman Geek


The Fortress of Solitude has been thought to be located in Arctic or floating in outer space, and in one comic, Superman’s hidden home was in the rain forest. But the true Fortress is located just 30 minutes from Manhattan, designed by a woman who, according to the Wall Street Journal, based its design off her favorite superhero’s lair.

For the Collector Geek


What do you collect? Baseball cards? Model trains? Fancy dolls? How about all three? This New Jersey home has the space — 7,850 square feet — for those collections and more. And if you’re a fish geek, the house has that covered too, with four built-in aquariums.

For the Computer Geek


Steve Jobs was the big name behind Apple, but in the very beginning, it was a different Steve — Steve Wozniak — who designed the original Apple 1, the first computer the company began to sell in the 1970s. In addition to designing one of the most iconic personal computers, Wozniak designed a modern home in Los Gatos, CA. Looking for a place to start your own tech revolution? This may be the location.
