Whether from their unique shape or intriguing building techniques, geodesic dome homes almost always make you do a double take. A minimalist version of architecture, this trend flourished with the counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s as part of the “return to the land” movement.

If you love the dome look, check out this three-bedroom, four-bath house in Pleasantville, New York—about 45 minutes north of Manhattan. Sitting atop a 40-foot granite rock cliff in a wooded area, the home was manufactured by the geodesic dome kit experts at American Ingenuity.

Like most geodesic domes, the 2,519-square-foot home is highly energy efficient and wind-resistant, saving about 50 percent on cooling and heating costs compared to traditional box-style homes.

Inside, triangle-shaped windows let in lots of natural light, and the main living room boasts an open floor plan, wooden floors, and a stone fireplace as focal point. Other amenities include a turret-like reading room, views of the town below, and a wraparound deck with room for entertaining.

Ready to own your own dome home? 25 Hillside Avenue is on the market now for $849,000.
