He found inspiration in one of his favorite films: the sci-fi movie “Tron: Legacy.”
“I set out to build a home that looks like it’s from the year 2050,” Jackson told Insider. 
As a real-estate developer and designer with his own firm, Acquiesce Design, Jackson was heavily involved in the construction process. He also designed his own furniture.
“I worked with a friend of mine that builds custom homes,” Jackson said. “I even used some of my contractors for certain elements of the build.”
The previous home looked dramatically different from the new house, a photo shows.
The original house had a traditional pitched roof and window grilles. It was also small enough to have a front yard: The house was flanked by trees and a single narrow walkway that led from the main street to the front door.
While the new house stands out from its surroundings, change is happening fast, a listing agent who goes by the name Pogir told Insider. Pogir holds the listing with his Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty colleague, Lisa Besserer.
“As you drive around the neighborhood, you’ll see many new modern homes being built or completed,” Pogir said. There’s one next door, and another just across the road, he added.
There are nine new construction homes in the area, all of which were completed this year, per Among those is a modern, $1.295 million house that’s covered in an array of artfully placed windows, and a $1.549 million house with a sleek monochrome exterior.
There are currently 36 single family homes for sale in the area, with prices starting at $275,000. Houses in Greenway Park have a median listing home price of $760,000, per data from The home inspired by “Tron: Legacy” is the most expensive listing in the area.
Jackson said it cost him $1.4 million to build the house. He added that he managed to bring the cost of the house down by leveraging his industry relationships and working with friends.
Instead of using a concrete wall to separate the home from its three-car garage, Jackson opted for a glass panel so the cars would be on clear display.
“I am a big Ferrari fan and collector,” Jackson said, adding that he drives the car regularly and has 1,500 miles on it. There’s also an option to purchase the Ferrari with the house for an additional $575,000.
Since the house was listed in mid-September, there have already been a few viewings, Pogir said.
“Most inquiries are about the overall design, the extraordinary lifestyle, and of course, the garage view from the living area,” Pogir added.
The kitchen has a spacious island counter and is fitted with a full suite of Miele appliances, per the listing.
The house might not be for everyone, and the ideal buyer would be someone who wants to live in a piece of art, Pogir said.
“I wanted to create an office that was like a luxury exotic car dealership, and gravitated towards adding red accents and Ferrari memorabilia,” Jackson said.
“I get bored easy so I designed removable straps on the master bedhead and footboard,” Jackson said. “I can make different tufted strap designs with different colors or patterns and change them out easily at will.”
“I went a little overboard with focal points but I came up with so many great ideas it was hard for me to eliminate some of them,” he added.
Memorabilia from one of Jackson’s favorite rock bands, Kiss, hangs on the walls, and there’s an AC/DC paintball machine in the corner.
“I designed and built this project to show my capabilities as a designer and what’s possible in the single family home market,” Jackson said. “I also want to inspire others to think outside of the box and stop getting trapped into the same old boring home designs that have been around for decades.”
