Pranteek Patnaik Realty

Beverly and Kenneth Garcia are selling their Monolithic Dome home, the wonderfully named Sweet Dome Alabama. This amazing house is built on a hillside — 140-feet above the valley floor — on 45 acres surrounded by a forest near New Hope, Alabama.

Constructed as three interconnected domes — a Hyperion — with the large dome as the main house with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a great room, and more. The middle dome, the small one, is the mudroom, utility, and mechanical room. The medium-sized last dome is a two-car garage. They stained and sealed the concrete floor and left the dome walls in their roughest form, then decorated the interior with browns and wood-like touches.

The combination of woodsy interior and tri-dome shape make this home both futuristic and rustic.

The house has 2,133 square feet of living space plus another 567 square feet for the utility dome and garage for a total of 2,700 square feet.

“A Monolithic Dome Home with 42+ acres of a wooded mountainside,” writes the realtor. “A long, paved driveway winds up thru stunning rock formations with a view out over the valley below. The property lies on the East side of the mountain for bright mornings and shady afternoons. Timber with black walnut, poplar, red oak, and more. Adjoining wooded properties extend on all sides for miles creating a wildlife-rich environment and great deer hunting. The concrete structure is super-insulated as well as fire and tornado-proof resulting in lower utility costs and better insurance rates than any conventionally built home.”
