[Update: As of January 29, 2021, the house is no longer on the market]
The underground dome house in North Texas is getting a lot of attention. This completely hidden Monolithic Dome home is totally unique, absolutely private, and currently up for sale. In addition to real estate listings and coverage by local news websites, national news outlets like HouseBeautiful.com and Today.com have published stories about this unusual house.
The article published on HouseBeautiful.com says, “In Buffalo, Texas, there’s a 40-acre property with a house that was made for someone who wants total privacy. The home, which is on the market for $2.25 million, is completely underground. While it clearly doesn’t get any natural light, the home’s walls and ceilings feature super colorful paintings that brighten the subterranean space.”
Today.com reports, “The home … opens up into a dining, kitchen and entertainment area. The walls are covered with more murals and artwork, similar to the ones that cover the tunnel and lobby. … tunnels lead to other rooms in the house. Overall, the home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is about 3,000 square feet.”
The listing agent, Terry Alexander, was quoted in the article on Today.com as saying, “While the structure has no natural light, the bright decor — including gigantic wall murals — and vaulted ceilings more than make up for it.”
The underground dome is currently hooked up to local utilities but could be completely off-grid. The property has a well, and included with the house is a generator with enough power to light up the house for two weeks. In addition to the 3,000 square foot home, this property has two utility sheds, two workshops or distribution centers totaling 7,500 square feet, and a garage that could be easily converted into two stories.
The fully fenced site is a sprawling 40-acre country haven in the small town of Buffalo, Texas, just 90 minutes from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. There are multiple spring-fed ponds, a beautiful deck for taking in the sunsets, and tons of garden space.
Kaufman County Home Hunter reports, “… this earth-bermed shelter hides under 40-acres of agriculture-ready land. The fenced property has two large distribution warehouses, two utility sheds, and a dome garage wired to be a two-story dome.”
A great deal of attention has been showered on this unique underground home, and it’s easy to see why. The biggest surprise might be that most of the focus hasn’t been solely directed at the invisible nature of the house but on the unique interior instead.
In an article posted on Realtor.com, the author writes, “As for that paint: Three different artists helped to create the ornate wall and ceiling decor in the house. Most of the rooms have a theme, with clouds on the ceilings and elaborate murals. There’s a room that has an Acapulco beach theme, an Egyptian room, a space room, a Mayan room, and an ocean room. The bathroom resembles some kind of ancient temple.”
This retreat would be perfect for anyone wishing to enjoy the peace of a secluded and private world all their own.
