This waterfront dome home is on the market in Florida


If you've ever wanted to live in a chic planetarium near the water, this Hernando Beach offering might just be the ticket.

The 3-bed, 2-bath home at 4100 Flamingo Blvd lets the location do the heavy lifting. The inside of the home is suburban stock shoved into the confines of an interesting, geodesic shape. Touches of the sort of weirdness that would prompt someone to build a dome remain, small decks rim the home and a spiral staircase provides the way up into the home's upper level. The dome shape gives the living room 20-ft high ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace keeps the space warm.

While it's not included in the house's overall square footage, a ground floor game room offers tons of recreation space. (Unfortunately, its lack of elevation makes this portion of the house uninsurable.)

Outside the home, a yard spills out toward the Rock Bass canal. A private dock gives the owner the ability to be in the Gulf of Mexico in minutes. A fish cleaning station is waiting for when you come back. The backyard features a patio overlooking the water, a sandy seating area and an in-ground pool.  Altogether, the home is going for $759,000.

The property is represented by Margaret Weaver of Weaver Group Realty.
