We began to wail when we saw this week’s most popular home. No, not in pain! For you non-Clash fans, we’re talking Casbah Cove, a custom-built, Moroccan-themed masterpiece in the California desert.
The luxurious space took over four years to build and employed Moroccan artisans. For those who’d rather skip a trip to North Africa, this home’s over-the-top decor and architecture are a must-see.
This week’s runner-up is a big red "barndominium"—and it isn’t in Texas! This Tennessee home comes with a safe room and 111 acres.
Other homes causing you to click this week include a sweet Eichler in the San Francisco Bay Area; a sleek contemporary in Austin, TX; and the Florida beachfront home of erstwhile Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles.

Dyersburg, TN realtor.com
Why it’s here: The sands of Morocco blow into the California desert. Known as Casbah Cove, this architectural marvel was “inspired by the open and carefree living of Moroccan architecture."
The opulent estate features over-the-top amenities, from a hookah lounge to a retractable glass ceiling, and an indoor atrium with king palms and lush landscaping.
Custom-built over four years, the mansion showcases the work of Moroccan artisans, who spent months painstakingly carving wood, stone, and plaster and intricately laying thousands of feet of authentic tiles throughout the home. The space features a separate guesthouse, dining, entertainment areas, multiple pools, spas, theatre, wine cellar, and library.
The property has come on and off the market for years and was listed in 2015 for $24.5 million, with price chops over the years since.
