The Silvershore Monolithic Dome Home is for sale. The house sits on a 290-foot by 130-foot lot on the shore of Bayou Grande in Pensacola Bay with a commanding view of the bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The house is right on the water with a small beach and a boat dock.
The dome is a three-story tall three-quarter sphere, 42 feet diameter at the base, 48 feet diameter at the belt line, and 35 feet overall height.
The home was constructed in 2004 after Hurricane Ivan destroyed the prior house. The base floor of the dome is a garage with large openings to allow hurricane storm surges to pass through the garage space. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom living areas are on the second and third floors. There is an elevator from the garage to the living areas.
The house is listed for $1.5 million.
