Transformer Bedroom Separates From House So You Can Sleep Under Stars

Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

Some say having a bedroom that will roll away from the safety of your stable house, and closer to a cliff, is a bad idea. But those people play it safe. And safe is boring. And boring is having to look at a stupid ceiling and not the endless, star-dotted universe when you are in bed.

Some genius in Altadena has created a bedroom that is "built upon a platform that can be rolled out on tracks into the rear garden allowing one to sleep under the stars." This genius also made sure to keep an alcohol supply within a few feet of the rolling bed—according to the listing (yes, this can be yours) "there is also a 7 foot rotating wall between the bedroom and living room with a dry bar on one side and an entertainment cabinet on the other side."

You need more than a rolling bedroom for your $898,000? Other features include a butler's pantry, sweeping views of the San Gabriels and the city lights, the promise of a better life, the ability to laugh at weakness, a garden with a built-in entertainment system, two boring non-moving bedrooms, sleeping well, no bad dreams, no paranoia, a pergola, tiki torches, a spa, less chance of illness, and Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances.
