A house that stretches out toward the sky reminiscent of a telescope has hit the market for $1.7 million.

The Lancaster, Pennsylvania home boasts 3,500 square feet of space and was designed by famed architect Hugh Hugh Newell Jacobsen, who was inspired by the look of a telescopic lens extending toward the sky, according to realtor.com. Designed horizontally, each of the clapboard-and-brick structures stacks against one another to create a rising effect for the side of the home.

Jacobsen, who also designed Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ home in Martha’s Vineyard, envisioned the property as a modern take on the  German farmhouse style. Skylights, windows and sliding doors allow natural light while walls look like traditional prairie exteriors. The living room, which stretches across two stories and shows off all-glass facades, was inspired by a telescope aimed toward the sky.

Inside, a winding staircase connects the four bedrooms, living room and professional kitchen. White walls and built-in storage systems are meant to give the space a fun, ultra-modern vibe. The all-glass windows across the living room and several bedrooms provide views of the landscapes. The outside yard, meanwhile, comes with a garden, pond, strolling paths with dogwood trees and a full-length patio.

Marilyn Berger of Keller Williams Elite is the listing agent in charge of selling the property. The home, which sits on three acres of land, was built in 1980 and renovated in 2010. Its unique style has made it a favorite among Pennsylvania architecture connoisseurs for years.
