Whether because of their unique shape or intriguing building techniques, dome homes always make you do a double take. The latest to catch our eye is this four-bedroom, three-bath version in Centennial, Colorado, about 25 minutes southeast of Denver.

The 4,570-square-foot home was built in 1982 by aeronautical engineer Chris Barnes as a showplace for modern design and energy efficiency. Despite its roots in the 80s, the two-story structure has been remodeled with midcentury styling in mind, starting with the geometric wooden door at the entry.

Inside, 23-foot ceilings make for a spacious living room with an indoor salt water pool, spiral staircase, and central oculus skylight. A curved rock column at the home’s center is used as a heating and cooling structure, and the dining room boasts built-in bookshelves and a 252-bottle wine room with a stone wall waterfall.

A newly remodeled kitchen in white, black, and lime green is ready for chefs, and all of the bedrooms feature curved walls and windows with seats. Other perks include a three-car garage, back patio, and a half acre of open lawn space.
