Dome Home Arigato, Mr. Roboto

Well folks, we’ve come full circle. If you live on the fringes of conventionality, it only makes sense that your choice of housing should follow suit. Enter the geodesic dome home, the final frontier for the oddball living in square world.

We turn our attention to Wilton, CT, where a home inspired by the great R. Buckminster Fuller sticks its thumb in the eye of its four-wall counterparts.

Its natural, arching frame is far from this aesthetic rebel’s greatest selling point. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home offers surprises in every curve of its 3,619 square feet.

Take, for example, the stone-lined atrium, which frames the home’s 4.5 acres through delicate five-spoke windows, and the numerous built-ins that borrow from Fuller’s patented templates.

Continuing along the first floor axis, a family room has a wood-burning fireplace framed in brick, and a separate bedroom suite with a full kitchen has rental potential.

A delicately curved staircase bends onward and upward to a second-floor living room and dining room that overlook the atrium.

Despite its time capsule status — the property’s décor lives up to its 1974 construction in every possible way — there’s simply lots to love about this quirky abode. However, those looking to run the geodesic gambit should be prepared to pony up the cash: The Wilton dome home currently lists for $795,000.
