Rockwell, North Carolina — Two colorful pyramids (one unfinished) on 18 acres in Rockwell, North Carolina. They were the vision of a quirky North Carolina State University architect who died before completing the project.
For Rowan County, which is mostly farmland, the attempt at a modern home is a strange sight.
Her father was inspired by European modernist architecture in the 1950s, where he served in the military, she writes.
However, the Red Pyramid remains unfinished, with over 3,000 square feet of open space being used for storage by its current owners.
Property records show that the couple has lived in the pyramid for the past 16 years.
DM Properties & Associates real estate agent Rhonda Jolly said the owners love the pyramid but are considering downsizing it.
The house and all its land are on the market for $675,000.
She hopes to maintain the integrity of the pyramid and find a buyer to complete what James Kratz started in 1987.
“It takes the right buyer,” said Jolly. “Someone who can do what the land can do and make it what they need.”
Pyramids went viral on social media this week, gaining attention on TikTok, Reddit, and Facebook. Jolie is happy to take extra care in hopes of attracting out-of-state buyers.
