Then, of course, there are the unusual lines and angles to be expected of any structure named for a geometric figure.

"So many people just love that carport, just because of the lines of it," the realtor said of a particularly intriguing, angular aspect of the home design.

Inside, the main house has four bedrooms, four baths, and a wine cellar within more than 5,200 square feet of living space. It has original bamboo cabinetry along with white-painted wooden cabinets added to the modernized kitchen and master bathroom.

There's a fireplace in the sunken living room, and swimming pool in the lushly planted backyard. Additionally, it is replicated in miniature in a guesthouse out back that has been nicknamed a 'reflection house.'

"This is a realtor's dream...It's an honor to list it," admitted Perez. "It's ready to go to the next owner who is honored to walk in."

The realtor conceded that the pandemic appears to be restricting interest in the house, but she is confident that the near-$4 million price tag is not having that effect.

"We have been doing pre-marketing on the house for some time," Perez revealed, grasping for an explanation. "I think it's because of lack of travel: the people who are interested are not able to travel."

"I think we're priced really well. I think it's going to be a great deal for someone," she said confidently. "It's a Gesner product that's in pristine condition."

"It's going to be a landmark," the realtor predicted, stopping short of calling the house historic while still singing its significance.

"To me, it's because it's art. You're living in art," she declared. "It's hard to put a price on that." For more information on Gesner's remarkable Triangle House, click here.
