A rushing waterfall

The centerpiece of this Tiburon, Calif., mansion is a stone staircase with a dramatically lit 10-foot waterfall. Depending on her mood, the owner can take it from a peaceful trickle to roaring rapids.

The home, which looks and feels a lot like a temple, is called "The Nirvana House." It's listed with San Francisco luxury brokers Joel Goodrich and Barbara Klein for $11.89 million.
