One of Tampa Bay’s rare geodesic dome homes is now for sale


Often referred to as a "bubble house" or a "moon home," geodesic dwellings are arguably perfect for Florida: They're energy efficient, they can withstand extreme temperatures and they're designed to deflect hurricane-force winds. Perfect for self-quarantine.

They're also extremely rare, and right now one of the only geodesic home in Tampa Bay is currently on the market.

Located just north of Palm Harbor at 1074 Point Seaside Dr. in Crystal Beach, this geodesic home sits at the end of cul-de-sac on a half acre lot with 110-feet of waterfront. Built in 1988 from a Oregon Dome kit, this 2,594-square-foot house comes with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathroom, as well as oak wood floors, a third floor master bedroom, a rear garage door for boats, a new roof and hurricane shutters, and a custom front door features stained glass from England dating back to the 1800s.

The current listing price is $1,225,000, and the agent is Kristin Hallamek of Engel & Völkers Belleair.
