Dome of a Home.

Dome of a Home

Dome of a Home is in great condition and looks very inviting... but it also looks unoccupied. Hopefully someone will continue to keep up the property.

Dome of a Home

The "Dome of a Home" featured on HGTV, Discovery Channel, etc is on the market. Currently still available as a rental. We drove by today and it had a real estate sign posted.

The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, an in-ground pool and an elevator.

Many of the roads were closed following the last hurricane, so you actually take a loop to the home, located at: 1005 Ariola. If you're traveling east on Santa Rosa Island, turn right at the new Elementary School (can't miss it as it's built up on pilings) or the next street, (at the Catholic Church) go to the end of the street and turn left.

Dome of a Home

"Dome of a Home" is located on Santa Rosa Island, Pensacola Beach, FL. When we were there last, evidence of Ivan was still apparent but this dome house (I saw it on HGTV a couple of years ago) made it through the hurricane virtally untouched and beautiful! The owners also rent it out.
