To be a CoolHouse, the standard [[StepfordSuburbia suburban]] mansion or BigFancyHouse just doesn't cut it. The CoolHouse is WishFulfillment in real estate form. It might look like an ordinary home or something that wouldn't normally be used as a house, but in either case the briefest of tours of its features will reveal that it is no ordinary home.

* The [[http://smallville.wikia.com/wiki/Fortress_of_Solitude#Fortress_of_Solitude_in_other_media Fortress of Solitude]], {{Franchise/Superman}}'s arctic crystal castle. Depending on the media, it is either an alien structure of criss-crossing crystals ([[{{Film/Superman}} the films]], ''{{Series/Smallville}}'', ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'', etc.) or just looks like an ice mountain (the Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse, ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'', ''WesternAnimationSupermanDoomsday'', etc.)

* The Aerie, the Colorado cabin in ''AuntDimity Goes West'', is one of these. It seems to have grown organically from the mountainside, and it features a variety of decks and windows in many shapes (including portholes and stars). The place also has a variety of luxuries (a massive indoor play fort in the boys' bedroom suite, sauna, hot tub, arcade game room, home theatre, library, outdoor firepit, indoor fireplaces, and so on). One of the characters calls it the owner's treehouse, explicitly stating that he was forbidden a treehouse while growing up and used his wealth as an adult to live the dream. The local pastor's wife comes for a visit and is visibly impressed with the place from the moment she enters.

* Nanaki's house in the Literature/TanteiTamKZJikenNote novel ''The Youkai Computer Knows'' to the point it looks quite jarringly fantastic for a premise within realistic Greater UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}} backdrop. Not only Nanaki uses his [[TeenGenius AI skills]] to manage a LargeFancyHouse while in the state of MinorLivingAlone, including driverless cars, robotic servants, and large numbers of sensors to reporting literally everything in the house (to the point of precision agriculture). It's also self-sufficient in terms of food production, involving a fish farm and what the novel refers as miniature farm animals. On top of it it's egg-shaped, highly unusual in Japan where strict building codes mean most houses are pre-fab.
